According to the deal, money would be paid upfront before Justin perform at the event, and the GOP donors would also cover production expenses. According to the contract, the show was bankrolled by GOP donors.
This would have been a single biggest payday for Justin Bieber, but his manager, Scooter Braun, and Lebron James talk him out of it, though he seriously considered the offer as he is a Canadian and not involved in US politics.
Scooter Braun is a big supporter of Hillary Clinton, and once had a fundraiser event for the Democratic party nominee in his L.A home, and he believes that the offer is political, regardless of its representation. He also told Justin he would quit being his manager if he takes up the gig offer.
Sources revealed that Justin would perform if he could the banner "Black Lives Matter", but the idea was immediately rejected by the donors, instead said that he could display a banner that says "All Lives Matter", and he could also o ahead and say any thing on stage, even if it insults Donald Trump.
