Shawn Mendes was booked to perform a bat mitzvah on Saturday – but it wasn’t your typical soirée.
According to TMZ, Darius Bikoff, the creator of Vitaminwater and Smartwater, paid Shawn a hefty fee to perform at his daughter Ella’s 13th birthday.
The party was planned and financed by Darius, and it reportedly cost $5 – 7 million.
As well as that, the Bikoffs booked Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Grandmaster Flash to DJ the event, which was held at the Plaza Hotel.
TMZ also reported that around 40 to 50 horse-drawn carriages were hired to carry 275 guests from the temple to the party.
This isn’t the first time Darius has booked a major artist to perform at a party, as he reportedly hired Justin Timberlake to play at his 10th wedding anniversary party back in 2013 – which cost him a reported $1.3 million.
