R+B star Alicia Keys has slammed reports she disappointed fans by failing to perform at a gig on Friday (25FEB05) - insisting she never confirmed she would take to the stage.

MICHAEL AULT, the owner of Los Angeles' Gryphon Club, complains he had to refund disappointed ticket holders because a friend of the Grammy winning singer promised fans Keys would perform if he received a cut of the ticket sales.

But when Keys arrived, she sat in the VIP area and didn't sing a note, reports website PAGESIX.COM.

A spokesperson for the star says, "Alicia's management knows nothing about this matter. She was never confirmed to perform at the Gryphon."
