Mmm whatcha pay?
Jason Derulo reportedly bailed on a performance at Keele Univeristy in England last year — but not before making off with the $ 26,000 the student union paid him.
Students at Keele shared a video on Twitter this week wishing Derulo luck at an upcoming performance, but also requesting he pay back the 20,000 pounds.
“Hi Jason, good luck tonight (at Sounds Like Friday Night) on the stage. When you get a chance. Can you pay us the twenty grand you owe us?” students ask in the short clip.

Tom Snape, a member of Keele’s student union, told BuzzFeed Newsthat Derulo did show up on Jan. 30, 2016, but didn’t end up performing the show — and it is unclear why.
“We want Jason Derulo to acknowledge (what happened). In an ideal world, we would get that money back,” Snape told BuzzFeed.
The student union’s contract was not specifically with the “Whatcha Say” singer, it was through a series of agents.
Snape and the rest of the union were provided with legal advice stating it would be difficult to get the money back.
They decided to make the plea public after the hashtag #SLFN for the “Sound’s Like Friday Night” performance by Derulo gained traction.
Countless students at the University — and others on social media — joined in on questioning Derulo about the cash.
The concert was slated to be at Keele University in England.
“So glad I didn’t get a ticket,” one user wrote.
There was also a poster shared from the school’s campus that showed Derulo with a giant international no symbol over the singer’s face and the line: “Unlike some people I wouldn’t let our union down.”
Reps for Derulo did not immediately respond to a Daily News request for comment.
