Justin Bieber can't seem to escape trouble when it comes to his performances, and his appearance at the Z100 Jingle Ball in NYC was no exception. It is being reported that the singer is costing the promoter at least "$1 million in fines." An insider for RadarOnline.com is saying that he “was so late to the stage that he ended up costing the promoter millions of dollars in fines.”
The "Sorry" singer was scheduled to close out the show, and the source said he arrived at the Madison Square Garden venue at 10:30 p.m. but when it was time for him to perform, no one could find him.
“His car pulled up and he got out with his entourage and headed straight to his dressing room. Everyone was relieved to see him inside the building an hour before he was scheduled to take the stage at 11:30pm.”
The source continued saying, “Eventually the organizers had to knock on his dressing room door and beg him to take the stage. He was paid to perform for 30 minutes, but the Garden has a midnight curfew. Any show that goes on past midnight cost the promoter millions in fine.”
Once the alleged curfew time which they say is midnight, Radar is reporting that “people were begging him again but this time for him to end the show!”
“Justin refused to leave until 12:15 am, costing the producers millions and making a lot of fans mad that they missed their train home.”
The well-respected publication The New York Times wrote that JB appeared on stage at "around 11:30.” Also, in the past, other artists have performed past their curfew like Drake, but the fines were reported around $10,000 and not in the millions.
There still has not been any confirmation that Justin is to blame for the scheduling conflict or if the promoter is taking any legal action toward the singer, but we will have to wait and see.
