Taylor Swift is supposedly being sued after keeping the $2.5 million she was paid to perform at a canceled country concert in Canada.

According to TMZ, Swift was set to be the headliner in August 2012 at the Capital Hoedown, a huge country music concert in Ottawa, Canada.

After the show was canceled, Swift kept the $2.5 million she was paid up front.

According to a New York lawsuit filed against the singer-songwriter, the ticket company for the concert is suing Swift for the $1.8 million it had to refund to fans. If Swift lost the suit, she walk away with $700,000 in profit.

The singer’s rep told TMZ that Swift has not seen the lawsuit. The rep added that Swift never made a deal with the ticket company over refunded money if the concert were to cancel.

According to Perez Hilton, Swift was not the party that canceled the concert. Supposedly, the promoters of the event were not prepared for the hoedown and had to call it quits.
