Miley Cyrus Lawsuit

Bogus Agent Screwed Us Out Of $125K

EXCLUSIVE

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.

These stories surface from time to time. I can't stand Miley Cyrus, but this certainly isn't her fault (for once).

If I was hanging out in South Beach Miley Cyrus would be the last person I would be interested in seeing.

Interesting. I wonder how any individual verifies that agents are legitimate. As for the woman who took the direct payment: it shouldn't be difficult to figure out who/what she is.

TMZ wrote, "the promoters seem to believe they really were dealing with Miley's agent." This looks like some in the promoters office pocketed 125K. Inside Job!!!!!!!!

Send a $125K deposit and I will deliver Jangy Tangy Cush to your Super Bowl, spring break party or birthday bash.

(Who is Jangy Tangy Cush you ask? No idea, I just made the name up. So can I deliver this artist? No, of course not.)

Send money!
Don't wait.
Time is running out.
Do it NOW!

That's a lot of money. U can't just have a bank account with out giving said bank all ur personal information. That being noted, going after Miley makes this look like nothing more than a money and publicity grab. The bank can easily tell them all the info they need to go after the real party responsible.

There's something weird here. Sounds like an amature promoter got hood-winked by an experienced con-woman.

How the Hell would Miley Cyrus be worth 125K for an appearance? I'd pay double that to never have to see her again.
