Christopher “Ludacris” was spotted in Chicago a few days ago (December 19) promoting his Conjure Cognac at Kenwood Liquors.
Word on the curb is that Luda will be have a VERY merry Christmas after recently securing a gig to perform at an exclusive Christmas party for some millionaire where he was paid nearly $100K to hit the stage… and he wasn’t even the only star there!
According to TMZ, a millionaire entrepreneur by the name of Jason Hope dropped the wad of cash on Luda to perform a 45-minute set for party-goers at Hope’s Arizona mansion. Jersey Shore’s Snooki, Stephanie Pratt and a bunch of other celebs were also paid to party.
In all, Hope spent nearly $200,000 to get the famous faces to attend at his bash.
— Snooki got $17,500
— Lo and Stephanie got $12,500 each
— “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul got $16,000
— Kardashian stepfather Bruce Jenner got $15,000
— Giuliana and Bill Rancic got $15,000 total
— Dean Cain got $5,000.
According to Hope’s rep, the whole party totaled nearly $500,000. Who said money can’t buy friends?
Dayum Luda got $100,000 for 45 minutes? That’s a whole lotta Conjure! I wonder who the liquor sponsor was at that bash…
