WHAT?! We thought Cee Lo Green LOVED Christmas!
At least, he sounded like he did with all the badass holiday songs he released this past December! What gives?!
Apparently, however, The Voice judge and his management team were behind on helluva conspiracy theory to snag thousands of dollars from a promotions company by agreeing to series of Christmas concerts that they never planned to actually execute…and are now facing a $14.2 million lawsuit!
WTF?! We know, this one is a little complicated!
So let's break it down for you:
According to Cierra Management Group, the singer's people approached them in November of 2011 with a tour proposal called the "12 Days of Christmas." Cee Lo would be expected to hold a concert on each of those days - however, the deal was that Cierra would front $100,000 for EACH.
Obviously, that was way too much, so Green's team re-assessed and then suggested SIX concerts instead, but that was still too expensive for them!
Finally, Cierra was offered TWO concerts for a total of $243,000…which they decided they could swing, and agreed!
Sweet deal, right?! WRONG!
