Taylor Swift Sued Over Canadian Hoedown
Taylor Swift is America’s sweetheart, but she’s facing some real trouble (wubble, wubble) in America’s hat. She’s being sued in Canada!
TMZ reports that Swift was paid $2.5 million up front to headline a huge country music festival in Ottawa, Canada. The festival, called the Capital Hoedown, was set to go down in August 2012 — but it never happened … and Swift kept all of her cash.
Since Swift still has her $2.5 mil despite not having to show up or perform, the ticket company for the hoedown is requesting that Swift pay back the $1.8 million in ticket sales that need to be refunded to the buyers. This would essentially still let her get $700,000 profit despite not having to show up or do anything. Not a bad deal, right?
However, Swift’s rep insists she has no deal with the ticket brokers — and that no one in her camp has seen the lawsuit yet. We have a feeling that there will be attorneys with microscopes looking over this contract to seek any, and every possible loophole.
