Bar Owner Says He Paid for Justin Timberlake; JT's Attorney Denies It

Posted By on Mon, Feb 26, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Associated Press: Justin Timberlake will or will not make an appearance at a venue west of Chicago, depending on who's talking.

Sharky's Billiards owner Joe Piagentini says a promoter assured him that Timberlake had been paid $25,000 to make an autograph-signing appearance at the bar after a March 13 concert at Rosemont in the Chicago suburbs.

One of Timberlake's Los Angeles-based lawyers, Gary Stiffelman, issued a statement saying it's not going to happen.

Stiffelman said he hasn't discussed a Timberlake visit to Sharky's with anyone -- and he's never heard of Piagentini.

Piagentini told the (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald that the appearance is still a "go." He said he has not sold any tickets, although they've been advertised on some Web sites for $100 a pop.

Hmmmm. Sharky's Billiards. A guy named Piagentini. Chicago. Sounds to us like JT might be sleeping with fishes soon. Or signing autographs with a few broken digits.
