Officials: Check written for CeeLo's Riverfest performance cancelled

Officials: Check written for CeeLo's Riverfest performance cancelled

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Riverfest organizers are reportedly refusing to pay CeeLo Green part of his payment for his performance over the weekend.

According to Chairman Cheddy Wigginton, Green arrived 35 minutes late and didn't fill his contracted time. He said the contract allotted Green 75 to 90 minutes, while his performance lasted only half of that.

Organizers said Green had received an up-front payment, believed to be about half of the contracted sum of more than $100,000.

Green's manager, Larry Mestel with Primary Wave Management, told THV11 Tuesday that they were given a check after his performance for the remaining balance. Officials said Wednesday afternoon, however, that the check has since been cancelled.

‘THV in Your Town’ feature: Pine Bluff

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - I spent the day visiting Pine Bluff, walking around and going to different visitor centers. Before I visited the area, I posted on Facebook that I was going to Pine Bluff (See original post: http://on.kthv.com/1jbwVrA). Based on some comments left by folks there, I half-expected to find a city in shambles, with decrepit buildings and sporting a mere shadow of a by-gone era. I was pleasantly surprised to find exactly the opposite.
