Robin Thicke reportedly threatened to pull out of his New Year's Eve show.

The Blurred Lines hitmaker checked into the SLS Hotel South Beach on Monday for a Gatsby-themed New Year's Eve performance at the Miami, Florida hotspot.

But according to the New York Post's PageSix, Robin nearly cancelled at the last minute because he was "dissatisfied" with his accommodations and "demanded to be moved".

"He threatened to pull out if he didn't get a bigger room," a source said. "His travel agent was calling all over Miami to get him a bigger room at a different hotel."

Robin ended up staying at the SLS after all. A spokesperson for the hotel confirmed any disagreement had been worked out and dismissed the notion the star was making diva demands.

"Robin has been a great guest," the representative said.

Robin had a busy few weeks preparing for his New Year's festivities.

He appeared to be in two places at once, having pre-taped his performance at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2014 on ABC network.

He also took a moment to thank fans for his incredible success.

"Thanks to everyone for helping me start the new year with a no. 1 song on @Billboard with #ForTheRestOfMyLife," he tweeted early Wednesday.
