Gay pop singer George Michael is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 11 to face a charge of being an unfit driver.
Last October, Michael was found passed out in his car in a London intersection. He was arrested and later charged with the driving offense and “cautioned” for marijuana possession.
Meanwhile, Michael has received $3.5 million for a 75-minute performance at Moscow billionaire Vladimir Potanin’s New Year’s Eve party, London’s Daily Mail reported.
That’s about $46,000 a minute and $269,000 for each of the 13 songs he sang.
An entourage of 40 musicians and crew members accompanied Michael to the gig at a private estate outside Moscow. Around 250 people attended the lavish celebration.
Potanin is worth $8 billion and is believed to be Russia’s ninth-richest citizen. He manages a company that is the world’s largest producer of palladium and platinum, the Daily Mail said.
