Taylor Swift sued for taking money for canceled Canada concert
According to a lawsuit filed in federal court Tuesday, the pop star was slated to headline last August’s Capital Hoedown music festival in Ottawa, Canada but when it was canceled Swift and her management still kept the $2.5 million she was paid to perform.
To add insult to injury, the lawsuit says, the star did not reschedule a new appearance, resulting in the star to breach her contract.
The suit was filed by Florida-based ticketing company FIRE USA Inc. and was brought on after the company was hit with their own lawsuit by a third-party credit card payment processing company that was liable for refund requests by disappointed ticket holders.
The legal domino-effect now is targeting Swift and her management company, both which did not immediately comment on the lawsuit.
