Mexican singer Luis Miguel turned himself in to U.S. authorities and was released on bond on Tuesday (May 2) after an arrest warrant was issued for him in April in a case where he is suspected of failing to pay more than $1 million dollars to his former manager.
The Grammy Award-winning singer, whose full name is Luis Miguel Gallego Basteri, appeared at federal court in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
The arrest warrant had been issued for failure to appear at court hearings in the case, the U.S. Marshals Service in Los Angeles said.
There was no lawyer listed for Miguel in federal court filings.
The singer was ordered by a U.S. judge in New York to pay the money to the former manager, William Brockhaus, and the case was later transferred to federal court in California.
Forty-seven-year-old Miguel is an icon in Latin America and is often referred to as El Sol de Mexico (The Sun of Mexico). He has sold over 100 million records worldwide and performed in a wide range of musical styles, including pop, ballads, boleros and mariachi.
