A couple who pretended to be Adele’s managers have been arrested following an attempt to bamboozle Kendrick Lamar!
The couple were arrested in Miami over the weekend when their scams and schemes were rocked and rumbled by police after Adele’s real manager Jonathan Dickins received an email about free goods the couple had attempted to pick up for themselves.
The shocked manager then alerted police who discovered that the pair had used the same tactics to scam concert tickets out of the likes of Rihanna, Usher, Drake, Katy Perry and their peers.
When Jackson, Lii and one other woman arrived at Bayfront Park to pick up the tickets on Saturday — claiming Dickins was working with clients all day — the couple was immediately detained by police and now face grand theft and identity theft charges. The other woman with them was not arrested.
This is not the first time that Jackson has been accused of impersonating a celebrity rep. In 2007, he was sentenced to two years in prison for posing as a rep to Madonna and convinced a New York boutique to loan him $2.4 million jewelry that he later sold to a pawn shop.
A federal judge has ordered them to pull the plug on their operation.
