LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Riverfest organizers are reportedly refusing to pay CeeLo Green part of his payment for his performance over the weekend.
According to Chairman Cheddy Wigginton, Green arrived 35 minutes late and didn't fill his contracted time. He said the contract allotted Green 75 to 90 minutes, while his performance lasted only half of that.
Organizers said Green had received an up-front payment, believed to be about half of the contracted sum of more than $100,000.
Green's manager, Larry Mestel with Primary Wave Management, told THV11 Tuesday that they were given a check after his performance for the remaining balance. Officials said Wednesday afternoon, however, that the check has since been cancelled.
Despite the alleged controversy over payment, Green's Twitter account details that he enjoyed performing at Riverfest:
