McEaddy, who also pretended to be in charge of Lady Gaga, Rihanna and several other celebrities, pleaded guilty to 21 counts of grand larceny and fraud, among other charges, according to Manhattan district attorney’s office.

The scam involved McEaddy and 48-year-old Sylvester Vincent Carroll, of New Jersey, promising event producers a performance by a major recording artist, pocketing large deposits and not delivering a show after being paid.
