The 22-year-old was given the big fat cheque just to show her face at the seven-star club Bamboo over the weekend.
After performing at the city's Echo Arena, she headed down to the venue where she spent just an hour before heading back to her tour bus.
The Disturbia hitmaker isn't the first star to have received such a large sum from the owners of the plush new venue.
In March this year rapper 50 Cent helped open the club, receiving a reported USD 80,000 for his appearance.
Fans who attended the opening had expected the star to perform one or two of his songs, instead he merely greeted the crowd with a simple 'Hey' before indulging in the champagne laid out for him and his entourage.
