OJ's 21st Bday -- Hold the Mayo!

11/15/2008 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

NBA rookie millionaire OJ Mayo turned 21 last Monday -- but some people in AZ want their bread back after they say OJ stiffed 'em by not showing up to his own super-hyped birthday party.

Multiple sources in Tempe, Ariz. tell TMZ Mayo took more than a grand from local promoters, promising he'd show up at the Cherry Lounge after his game on Monday. Around 1:00 AM, Mayo's manager told people at the club OJ was in bed and wouldn't be coming out.

Best part: We're told two of Mayo's boys wanted free bottle service at the club after OJ bailed, and got tossed out on their asses.

The club put out 50,000 fliers around Tempe and aggressively pimped the b-day party out on radio stations -- to no avail.

A rep for his team, the Memphis Grizzlies, says the whole thing is a lil' fishy, because OJ was on the team plane back to Memphis ... right after the game.

The only reason why TMZ even ran this story is because people would think it's about the other OJ.

OJ Mayo is a bum! How do you not show up to your 21st bday party in Tempe AZ??? This group of savvy promoters hyped your party and tried to show you love on your 21st and you pull this ridiculous stunt. He's just mad because the Blur hit that game winner on him with 43 seconds in the 4th quarter and the Blur went basket for basket with him on his best day. Mayo gets no love from AZ and he better hook them promoters up for his wrong doing! The only thing fishy on this story is Mayo's Houdini act and his boys trying to get comp bottles at Cherry Lounge after Mayo is no were to be found!

who the heck is oj mayo anyways. I doubt alot of people paid a cover charge at the bar, just to see this no name. It's even worst if they bought prepaid tickets just to see this clown. The Cherry Lounge is always full to capacity on the weekends with the normal every weekend cover charges. The local promoters were hoping they could profit off of this no name, and now they are crying about chump change that they would have got with their everyday promotions. The bottom line is that this is just a chump circus and they are all chumps.
