Married couple arrested for pretending to be Adele's manager

The Miami Herald is reporting that Justin Jackson was arrested after trying to score tickets to Kendrick Lamar's show at Rolling Loud this past weekend.

A longtime Florida conman was arrested after he posed as singer Adele's manager in order to get tickets to a hip-hop festival in Miami.

Jackson, arrested under the name Jayce Lii, is charged with grand theft, fraudulent use of identification and tampering with physical evidence.

The rep subsequently alerted Miami police officials, who set up a sting and had Jackson and his wife Angel Lii arrested on Saturday (06May17) when they tried to pick up the £193 passes at the venue.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Adele for comment.

Brian Bieber, Dickins's attorney, said, "Mr. Dickins has finally breathed a sign of relief and hopes this fraud against him will stop once and for all". While detectives continued to investigate, Jackson and his wife used the bogus email account to request tickets to Lamar's manager, police said. The woman with them was not arrested.

Jackson has a long history of impersonating celebrities, and spent two years in prison after conning a NY boutique to loan him $2.4 million worth of jewelry back in 2007 by pretending to be a rep for Madonna; he was subsequently caught when the sold the jewelry to a Florida pawn shop.

He served two years in Florida after "borrowing" $2.4 million in jewellery, claiming them to be for Madonna. He eventually sold it at a South Florida pawn shop, documents state. He allegedly forged a signature from Oprah Winfrey, claimed to be Oprah's nephew, and posed as a Reggie Love-a former aide to Barack Obama.

In other schemes, Jackson posed as Love to acquire Cheesecake Factory and Juicy Couture gift cards.
