Miley Cyrus Lawsuit

Bogus Agent Screwed Us Out Of $125K

If you're disappointed Miley Cyrus didn't show at the Miami South Beach Outdoor Festival on New Year's Day .... you're not alone, because the promoters of that event have filed a lawsuit claiming one of Miley's people took a huge amount of money but never delivered the singer.

A Florida concert promotion company says it sent $125K to a woman claiming to be Miley's booking agent -- a deposit to secure Miley for the shindig.  The money was wired to a bank account while the deal was being finalized.

The lawsuit claims the booking agent cleaned out the bank account and on New Year's Day ... no Miley.

The promoters seem to believe they really were dealing with Miley's agent.   We spoke with the woman, who says she does NOT work for Miley but was acting as an intermediary.  She claims she forwarded the money to Miley's real agents.

Miley's people tell TMZ Miley has no involvement in this matter -- and tells us the woman has no connection to her actual booking agent.

Well it looks like the promoters were scammed. They really should have known better. If you want to book Miley Cyrus for an event then you should contact Miley or her agent directly. You don't just give a bunch of money to some mystery person you've never heard of.

If you're dumb enough to hand over $125k to someone who admits they don't represent an artist but claims that they can deliver them ... Then you're too dumb to be running a festival.

If you've got another $125k that you're looking to spend I think I can help. I don't own the Brooklyn Bridge, and I don't work for or represent the NYC DOT, but I do know someone there and I can make this happen for you. Trust me, I've done this before.
