Officials: Check written for CeeLo's Riverfest performance cancelled

Officials: Check written for CeeLo's Riverfest performance cancelled

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Riverfest organizers are reportedly refusing to pay CeeLo Green part of his payment for his performance over the weekend.

According to Chairman Cheddy Wigginton, Green arrived 35 minutes late and didn't fill his contracted time. He said the contract allotted Green 75 to 90 minutes, while his performance lasted only half of that.

Organizers said Green had received an up-front payment, believed to be about half of the contracted sum of more than $100,000.

Green's manager, Larry Mestel with Primary Wave Management, told THV11 Tuesday that they were given a check after his performance for the remaining balance. Officials said Wednesday afternoon, however, that the check has since been cancelled.

‘THV in Your Town’ feature: Pine Bluff

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - I spent the day visiting Pine Bluff, walking around and going to different visitor centers. Before I visited the area, I posted on Facebook that I was going to Pine Bluff (See original post: http://on.kthv.com/1jbwVrA). Based on some comments left by folks there, I half-expected to find a city in shambles, with decrepit buildings and sporting a mere shadow of a by-gone era. I was pleasantly surprised to find exactly the opposite.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Just in time for warmer weather, a hot summer spot for families is opening in Little Rock. Today, kids enjoyed the new splash pad added to the Riverfront Park children's play area.

It's located behind the Marriot Hotel along the Arkansas River and is open to the public. Mayor Mark Stodola said the splash pad will add to downtown Little Rock's appeal.

"I continue to have people who come here and visit who have a chance to walk through this park and they totally blown away and amazed by not only the beauty of the park but all of the amenities," he said.

Two Little Rock businessmen, Wayne Woods and John Burkhalter, are funding the splash pad.
