In addition to impersonating Adele's manager on email, Jackson, who worked in cooperation with his wife, Angel Lii, also pretended to be soccer superstar Lionel Messi's manager to "add a layer of verisimilitude" to his requests for sneakers, according to police.

The new charges, including the sneaker scheme, emerged on Tuesday, however, when police charged the couple with what the Herald described as "a dozen new felonies".

South Florida conman, Justin Jackson is facing criminal charges for impersonated the manager of singer Adele to try to get tickets to a Miami hip-hop concert as well as free sneakers from top National Basketball Association stars.

Court documents state that Jackson also posed as Adele's manager to ask stars including Chris Brown and Katy Perry if they would make a birthday video for a "dear friend", but the effort failed, the Guardian reports. The duo was arrested in May during a sting operation in which they attempted to get free tickets to Miami's Rolling Loud festival.

Jackson served time for a similar crime after claiming to be associated with Madonna in order to acquire $2.4 million in jewelry in 2007, according to the Herald. In 2014, he was sued for allegedly posing as Oprah Winfrey's nephew and a Barack Obama aide, among others, to get freebies.
