Sean Kingston

Fights with Promoter Over Payday ...

Promoter Gets Jacked

6/5/2014 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0605-sean-kingston-tmz-01Sean Kingston allegedly orchestrated the beating of a Hollywood club promoter in a dispute over his appearance fee ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources, Kingston was contracted to host and perform at Avalon in Hollywood Wednesday night, alongside Carmen Electra and The Jazmin Sisters. We're told Kingston was to be paid $11,000 for the event, and received half up front. 

But our sources say the promoter was upset Kingston didn't hype the gig enough on social media -- and showed up 3 hours late last night. We're told when he did arrive, he had his own security and 4-5 friends ... and immediately started harassing the promoter for the rest of his pay.

When the promoter refused, he tells TMZ Kingston ordered his boys to pin him against a wall ... allegedly jacking his watch, his iPhone and a few grand in cash.

Cops were called to the scene, but no arrests were made. Police confirm the victim told them Kingston orchestrated the attack over money.

According to law enforcement, Kingston is not named as a suspect in the police report. His bodyguards are listed as witnesses ... who denied any involvement. Police say the watch and phone were found later on club premises, but the cash is gone.

Put the guy in jail. You show up three hours late to a gig you then should not get paid either way beating up someone for money is against the law. Go ask OJ. We have laws in our society. I am tired of all these idiots rapper/ DJ's either white or black. They are responsible for this social behavior that is gone out of control.

It's not the first time he has shown up 3 hours late to a concert!! My brother told me about when he was going to Manhattan University years ago and they got a concert like once a week and the week my brother went when Sean Kingston was supposed to be there, he showed up like 2 to 3 hours late. I used to love sean Kingston but he seemed to turn into an ego *******
