Some of the craziest news we’ve ever heard is coming out of Space City Comic Con, which took place this past weekend in Houston, TX, and one of the reports states that the police were called on Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) and some of his Sons of Anarchy cast mates after they demanded their payment from the event’s promoter. It’s no wonder Charlie left the event early.
According to blogger Ava Jade, who attended the event in person,
Upon arriving at their hotel, the cast was told that the credit card provided by the promoter would not be accepted, it would be cash only for their rooms. When they arrived at the convention, Charlie had it out with the promoter to get to the bottom of it. He took his check to the bank to cash it, because he knew something was up. There he found out that the check that was given to him was written from an account that had been CLOSED. This happened to the entire cast. Many of the actors went to the promoters office to demand payment, where the promoter ended up calling the cops because he was “being held hostage”.
That is some seriously crazy shit. Taking that into consideration, we don’t blame Charlie for ducking out on the event early.
