Taylor Swift is being sued to the tune of $1.8 million.
The “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer was scheduled to perform at the Capital Hoedown in Ottawa, but the show was canceled after the producers were unable to get the concert organized. A lawsuit by the company that sold tickets to the show claims that Swift was paid $2.5 million upfront for the August 2012 performance that never took place.
The ticket company claims they had to refund $1.8 million in ticket sales, and they want Swift to pay for their loss. Even if Swift does pay the ticket company, she’ll still pocket a $700,000 profit.
Swift’s representative told TMZ the singer never made a deal with the ticket company, and that she has yet to see the lawsuit.
The 23-year-old, who recently broke up with One Direction singer Harry Styles, told Elle magazine that, even though she writes her songs based on her failed relationships, she “never chases boys” and that she’s never yelled at any of her ex-boyfriends.
“I’m sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say I’m chasing somebody who doesn’t like me as much as I like him – people love that angle on me. They’re like ‘Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.’ I never chase boys. They don’t like it,” Swift said.
She added, “I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever. I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower. If something is done, it’s done.”
Do you think Taylor Swift should have to pay the $1.8 million for the canceled concert, even though the cancellation wasn’t her fault?
