Taylor Swift (Photo: Kevin Winter)The latest news from the world of Taylor Swift? Unfortunately, it’s not a hot new boyfriend or gorgeously attired magazine cover. The superstar is currently making headlines for what seems to be a nasty lawsuit over a canceled live date last year.
The long and the short of it: Swift was invited to headline Ottawa’s Capital Hoedown music festival last August, and was paid a reported $2.5 million for the booking. Due to various problems, the organizers of the event were forced to cancel the event, and ticketholders were issued refunds.
Now, the ticket company is going after Swift in a recently filed lawsuit, saying that she walked away free and clear with the money—without ever having to lift a finger—while they were stuck refunding $1.8 million in ticket sales.
Swift’s camp told TMZ that she never contracted with the ticket company and has not seen the lawsuit yet. Still, this entire story sounds ugly.
The question remains—is Swift really liable in this position? Los Angeles entertainment attorney Michael Ackerman (who is not involved in the case) explains that, from what he can discern of the suit, it may not be that simple.Read More »from Taylor Swift Sued Over Canceled Canadian Hoedown: Is She Really At Fault?
