Mariah Carey & Elton John Just Reportedly Made MILLIONS Performing At Russian Billionaire Heiress' Wedding!
That's because the airport magnate just reportedly paid the music legends roughly $4.22 MILLION to perform at his granddaughter's wedding over the weekend!
Apparently, 19-year-old Irene Kogan — heiress to Moscow's Domodedovo Airport fortune — wed Daniel Kevey at London's Landmark Hotel on Saturday… with We Belong Together selected as the couple's wedding song!
It's unclear exactly how the multiple millions were split up between Mariah and Elton, but whichever way you slice it, they both made serious bank for playing the 9-hour reception.
Plus, Mimi actually sounded like her old self again!!! (We guess that means Dick Clark Productions just didn't pay her well enough…)

Bristol Palin Says Elton John, Aretha Franklin, & 9 Other Artists Are All 'Sissies' For Skipping Trump's Inauguration…
She can see sissies from her house!
Bristol Palin's biggest claim to fame — apart from her mother's name — is her time spent on Dancing with the Stars… which technically makes her qualified to speak for fellow reality TV villain Donald Trump, to some degree.
Man, political punditry has gone downhill… and it started so low to begin with…
As you're surely aware by now, the current President-elect/former Celebrity Apprentice host is just three weeks away from being sworn into office, and yet he STILL doesn't have any A-Listers scheduled to perform for his inauguration!
In fact, the 26-year-old mother-of-two just called ELEVEN different artists who've publicly declined Trump's invitation "Sissies" in a blog post on Wednesday!!
The Benny and the Jets singer was in tears during an emotional tribute to his late friend during a Las Vegas concert on Wednesday night.
After singing a song in memory of John Lennon, the 69-year-old fought back tears when he spoke about the late Wham! frontman, telling the audience:
"I only wish George was here to sing it with me."
Elton then played his ballad Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, which the duo memorably dueted on back in 1991.
A concertgoer said the singer was consoled by a band member after the performance and the crowd gave him a standing ovation, telling the Daily Mail:
We're still reeling over George Michael's shocking and untimely death, and so is the entire celebrity world.
Take a look at some of the remembrances (below)!
The Beach Boys Have Been Asked To Perform At Donald Trump's Inauguration — But Will They Accept The Invitation?
Yes. No. Maybe so?
It appears as though Donald Trump is finally closing in on securing an A-lister to perform at his big inauguration. While Drumpf's camp has already tapped America's Got Talent alum Jackie Evancho to sing the national anthem, as well as enlisted the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Radio City Rockettes to perform during the presidential festivities, they may FINALLY snag the big star they were so desperate for!
The businessman has asked The Beach Boys to perform at the inauguration and… they haven't said no! Although, the group (fronted by Mike Love, without his cousin/cofounder Brian Wilson) hasn't said yes either.
A rep for the beloved rock band told People:
