Eagle Mountain Casino alleged Friday that the 63-year-old comedian walked out of his show 30 minutes before it was scheduled to end and blamed his security team who could’ve “easily escorted any hecklers out.”The casino said that Lopez “let down his fans and sold out audience” by leaving early.

Lopez’s rep responded to the casino’s claims in a statement to The Post. “It’s the venue or casino’s job to provide a good experience for both the artist and the fans, but the casino failed in this regard,” a spokesperson for Lopez said. “The audience was overserved and unruly, and the casino staff was unable to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for the artist and guests.

George’s personal security team worked with the venue security staff to maintain order, ensure safety, and eject disruptive individuals.”“Unfortunately, the casino security team was not adequate to accomplish this task,” the rep continued. “George is not obligated to perform in an unsafe environment.

He feels badly that those who came to see the show were unable to do so as a result.”The Post has reached out to Eagle Mountain Casino for comment.The casino, which is located in Porterville, California, and holds 2,000 people, put out a since-deleted statement about Lopez’s show on Facebook Friday, and said that it was unnecessary for the “Blue Beetle” actor to leave early.“He could have provided us an opportunity to allow our security and team to escort any hecklers out since his own private security did not,” the venue said. “George decided to not continue with the show and leave.”A pre-show meeting had also been reportedly held to form a plan in case hecklers did manage to interrupt the show.Fans on social media claimed the person who interrupted the show.
