Despite reports claiming DirecTV paid Justin Timberlake a whopping $3 million to perform an hour-long set at their Super Bowl party in New Orleans this weekend, a rep for DirecTV tells Business Insider “The figure reported by Page Six is wrong … It is true that the performance benefitted Shriner’s Hospitals, but that is it.”Apparently the amount Timberlake was paid is far less than $3 million, but he did donate the entire amount to Shriners Hospital for Children.
Timberlake’s performance in question was his first official concert in five years and included a 10-piece back up band, as well as surprise on-stage appearances by Jay-Z and Timbaland.
Timberlake ended the evening with his hit “SexyBack” — and by donating his entire paycheck to Shriners Hospital for Children, confirms a DirecTV rep.
