Poaching Jason Derulo

The RnB star and singer of In My Head Jason Derulo is in Manchester this week for his world tour and it looks like there's a cat fight over him on the Manchester Club scene. There are still tickets available for tomorrow night's performance at The Manchester Arena at £35.  After this Derulo was due to host at The Milton Club as part of their weekly Marquee event. 

However, due to “A lack of hosting”, things quickly changed. This message appeared temporarily on the Facebook event page:

"We regret to announce, that we will no longer be hosting the official Jason Derulo afterparty at The Milton Club.

We have been closely reviewing other after parties booked in the UK throughout the tour, where there have been some negative responses due to a lack of hosting, therefore after much consideration we have decided it best to cancel this event and ensure we do what’s best for our guests/members & venue.

All guests who have purchased a ticket, please contact us directly for a refund. We will still be open and hosting a free entry, concert after party with drinks deals and DJ Stylus playing the best in RnB, Hip hop & house.

If you have any questions, please give us a call on 0161 850 2353."

What I interpret from this is that Derulo just isn't paying attention to his fans at his after parties across the UK. Not long after this message appeared, competitor club LIV uploaded this picture.

LIV appear to have poached him off the Milton Club. Did the Milton Club willingly give him up as they claim? Or did Derulo walk and go to LIV? It isn't clear, and The Manchester Evening News article  isn't to clear either.

The Milton Club's advert: 

I put an event on Meetup for this: as it stands only one other person and me are down as going: around 6 other people have reversed their RSVP. Do I go to Milton anyway? Marquee is always a good night. The managers have promised a refund and are throwing a free-entry party. Do I try on the door at LIV instead? Do I cancel the Meetup event? I have 24hrs to decide...
