Taylor Swift being sued for keeping $2.5 million profit for concert that was cancelled

By Gina DiFalco,

Taylor Swift is being sued for reportedly keeping earnings she was paid even after a concert was cancelled.

The “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer, 23, was paid $2.5 million for headlining the Capital Hoedown in Ottawa, Canada in August 2012, but when it was cancelled, she kept the money. She was reportedly paid the entire amount upfront.

TMZ reports that concert promoters failing to do their job caused the whole country music concert to get cancelled, and the ticket company had to refund $1.8 million in tickets.

The lawsuit, filed in New York’s federal court, states that the ticket company is suing Swift to reimburse the ticketholders. If she does, she will still get $700,000 worth of profit for a concert she never did, Fox News reports.

Her rep told TMZ she hasn’t even heard about the lawsuit and she never had any deal with the ticket company.
