Ticket company sues Taylor Swift for $1.8 million over canceled concert
If you like to badmouth Taylor Swift for being a 23-year-old woman who likes to date a bunch of different guys, here’s something you’ll really love: TMZ says she’s being sued for keeping $2.5 million for a concert at which she never performed. The concert wasn’t being run by an ex-boyfriend, was it?
The site says Swift was paid the sum for an August 2012 country music chow in Ottawa called the Capital Hoedown (Ottawa is the capital of Canada, for everyone who failed basic geography). The show was canceled, but while the company that sold the tickets had to cough up $1.8 million to pay back organizers, Swift kept her entire share, even though she was already entitled to $700,000 just for saying she’d go.
Taylor’s camp told the site the singer hadn’t made a deal with the company suing her, and hadn’t even seen a lawsuit yet. Maybe they just hadn’t opened their mail yet; Monday was President’s Day, after all.
