Sign My Cheque Before You Go Go

by | 02 January 2007

Troubled pop singer GEORGE MICHAEL has pocketed a huge sum for performing at a Russian billionaire's private party, it has been claimed.

Reports suggest the former WHAM! singer paid MICHAEL £1.5 million to entertain him and his 300 guests at a private estate outside the capital Moscow.

The huge fee for the hour long performance from MICHAEL means he is believed to be the highest paid entertainer in modern Russian history, beating CHRISTINA AGUILERA who was paid £1 million to perform at the wedding of Andrei Melnichenko in 2005.

An insider told the Daily Mail: "The businessman contacted George directly and asked him to perform. He has a vast private estate just outside Moscow and had turned his sports hall into a nightclub especially for the party.

"It was a fun night and George was back home in Britain by morning."

MICHAEL, who has recently hit the headlines for being "unfit to drive" and being caught in several compromising situations, was flown out to the billionaire's mansion to see in the new year, along with around 20 of his band, dancers and crew members.
