article imageOp-Ed: Russian billionaire pays Jessie J $465,000 to perform at party

By Christopher Bates     Dec 19, 2011 in Entertainment
Makhachkala - They say money doesn’t bring happiness, but it certainly does for Russian billionaire Suleyman Abusaidovich Kerimov, who recently paid English singer Jessie J £300,000 ($465,000) to perform at a party held in Makhachkala, Russia.
The party, which was held at a shopping mall, was attended by several players of FC Anzhi Makhachkala – the Russian Premier League soccer club which Kerimov owns.
According to the Mirror, Kerimov – who is currently ranked 118th on Forbes’ list of the world’s billionaires – also splashed out on exotic food for the guests.
Kerimov loves to splash the cash on his team too. Since purchasing Anzhi back in January, Kerimov has signed Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos, as well as Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto'o – who, as a result, overtook Cristiano Ronaldo as the world's highest paid soccer player.
Meanwhile, Jessie J, 23 – who is best known for her smash hit 'Price Tag' – is now in New York after performing at the VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul event.
