Adam Lambert

Worth WAY More than $80K

In Russia ... According to Lawsuit

Adam Lambert
would NEVER perform in Russia for less than $500,000 -- this according to a new lawsuit, in which a promotional company claims it was conned into thinking it could book him for a fraction of that price.

UK-based Madison Universal filed the lawsuit against a talent agency in Santa Monica named Family Productions -- claiming FP promised to broker a deal in which Adam would perform two concerts for $80,000 ... one in Ukraine and one in Russia.

Madison claims it paid FP a 10% deposit of $8,000 -- but FP didn't do squat to line-up the concerts ... so Madison tried to get its money back ... to no avail.

According to the complaint, Madison grew suspicious -- so it contacted Adam's agent Randy Salcedo at CAA -- who informed Madison that an $80,000 fee wouldn't cover a Lambert concert in Russia ... let alone an additional one in Ukraine.

According to the suit, the cost for flying Lambert out to Eastern Europe to perform is more accurately $500,000 ... or more.

Madison is suing FP for unspecified damages in excess of $25,000. Calls to FP were not returned.

Haters and small-minded people are always happy to slam talented people - They have nothing better to do. Adam ignores it, he knows what anonymous internet morons are all about - nothing. LOL This is not even about Adam - and these figures being thrown around are just people guessing what he's paid. None of them have a clue. I would pay any amount to see this man live. He is fantastic.

Boy not only is Adam Lambert a big sleazebucket, but the entire team surrounding him is too.

I wouldn't pay 50 cents to see Lambert, let alone $500,000. Only his herd of glitter buglets would.

LOL! I guess he doesn't need your .50c since he's getting half a million.

Something is wrong with legendary Queen. What are they thinking? They are way, way too good to let Lambert perform with them. Freddie Mercury must be rolling in his grave.
