Alicia Keys has been riding high in the media right now with all the covers she has been graced with but she has messed up …. she was a NO-show at her own album release party…. [is she getting DIVA- with her new nose job..and bronzing?]
*********The word was it was a classic case of the promoter not having the money to pay Keys***
She was expected to get $15,000 for a walk through and the only had $4000 of the money….. [Keys are you that greedy , or is it just business?]
NY Daily News
“These promoters were digging in their pockets, looking for cash, and were still short,” said another source. “The owner of the club even offered to pay the remainder of the owed money himself, just to get her in the club.”
That’s where fans who’d paid $25 a pop were waiting, says the spywitness: “One eight-months-pregnant lady, who is an Alicia Keys superfan, showed up and waited for hours just to see her.”
Keys’ manager, Jeff Robinson, told us, “This is the first I’ve heard of that,” when we asked him about the lack of payment. “I never heard she was getting paid at all.”
Then why did Alicia not go inside even to meet her boyfriend?
“Well, there was a lot of mismanagement by these club promoters, and that’s about all I know,” Robinson told us.
