CeeLo Green

Concert Promoters

REFUSE to Pay Over Short Show

5/27/2014 6:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527-ceelo-01Diminutive rapper CeeLo Green came up short on Saturday night and it's apparently going to cost him ... because a concert promoter in Arkansas is refusing to pay him.

Green performed at Riverfest in Little Rock, Ark. on Saturday night.   Green was contractually obligated to play for at least 75 minutes ... but his performance only clocked in at around 40 ... at least that's what Riverfest board member Cheddy Wigginton tells TMZ.

Wigginton said they had to pay nearly half of Green's fee up front -- they're withholding the rest. He said Riverfest won’t be looking to recoup the deposit.

We reached out to CeeLo's camp ... so far no word back.

Cee lo I have an easy solution to this simple problem. Do what Dave Chappelle did for the remainder of your obligated 75 minutes. Tell the crowd you don't have to like me but my contract says I need to stay for my whole time but it also does not state I need entertain and just sit there. That way if the promoter does not pay then Sue his fool behind ass.
