Taylor Swift Sued for Millions
Wonder If Taylor Swift Will Write a Song About the Pains of Litigation
Pop princess Taylor Swift has been sued for $2.5 million for having pocketed that amount as a fee for a concert she never gave.
The lawsuit, filed in New York's federal court by a ticketing company called Fire USA Inc., says that the "Red" songstress (whose tour for her chart-topping album kicks off next week) breeched an agreement she had to reschedule an August 11th concert in Ottawa that had been canceled.
The complaint says that, "Taylor Swift, individually and/or through her agent [The] Messina [Group], refused to perform and or reschedule a new appearance, as agreed under the Oct. 18, 2011 agreement."
Yeah, see, that's the thing. It may very well be Swift who's being sued but at this point in her career it's highly doubtful, if not completely impossible, that she has the slightest idea of how much she earns per show, where that money goes and when it's supposed to be returned. That's probably why calls to her management and PR peeps have gone unreturned -- they're most likely not even going to dignify this suit with a response and just handle it behind closed doors.
Stay tuned ....
