Man Arrested For Posing As Adele’s Manager And Trying To Get Kendrick Lamar Tickets

A man has been arrested over the weekend in Miami for impersonating Adele‘s manager and attempting to pick up free tickets to a Kendrick Lamar gig in Miami.

Billboard reports that Justin Jackson and his wife Angel Lii attempted to scam the staff at Rolling Loud Festival by posing as Jonathan Dickins and his wife.

It’s not even the first time that Jackson has tried to pull the scam, posing as Dickins and his wife several times before and requesting free tickets to concerts by Drake, Usher, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and more.

Dickins reported the scam to police over a year ago after he received several emails reps and concerts asking him what was happening, and so when Jackson requested the Kendrick tickets from Interscope records they organised to have someone pose as a production manager to nab the couple when they went to pick up the tickets.

Jackson and Lii are now facing several charges including identity theft, and is the second time Jackson has been arrested for posing as a representative for Madonna in 2007 and jailed for two years.
