Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and Madonna are reportedly among the major artists reportedly standing alongside Stevie Wonder in his boycott of Florida.  The news comes from the American Urban Radio Network's April Ryan, citing "a source close to Wonder" who said he would not perform in the Sunshine State due to its controversial "Stand Your Ground" law. 

The source supposedly leaked a list of musicians who will allegedly vow not to  perform in Florida after last week's controversial acquittal of the man who killed teenager Trayvon Martin last year.  Others supposedly included on the leaked list include: Jay-Z, Usher, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Will.i.am, R. Kelly and the Rolling Stones.  

Timberlake and Jay-Z have been paying tribute to Trayvon Martin during their "Legends of the Summer" tour, and the two have a date scheduled at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami next month.  Timberlake's solo tour is also scheduled to stop in Orlando later this year.  Rihanna, who took to Twitter to express outrage over the verdict, does not have any more stops in Florida on her "Diamonds" tour.
