Taylor Swift Being Sued by Capital Hoedown

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift was set to headline the Canadian Hoedown in Ottawa last August but when officials canceled the show Taylor kept her advance payment of $2.5 million dollars, and according to TMZ, she is now being sued.

Organizers of the Capitol Hoedown announced in July 2012 that zoning problems and rising costs had forced the cancellation of the event.

So what does all of this have to do with Taylor Swift?

According to a new lawsuit filed in federal court in New York, Taylor was given her payment up front and the ticket company, which had to refund $1.8 million in tickets, believe she is responsible for paying the money since she never actually did anything.   According to TMZ even if Taylor were to pay, she would still walk with $700k in profit.

Taylor’s rep told TMZ the singer NEVER made a deal with the ticket company — and has not yet seen the lawsuit … which means she’s not exactly rushing to fork over a $1.8 million check.

Sounds to me like someone forgot to put an ever important clause into Miss Swift’s contract when they made the deal.

    Taylor’s a nice girl and kind one, I doubt she’d lie about this. It’s obvious that money isn’t important to her. Money to her is probably just like money to us: Food, clothes and probably bills too. This was shocking to read but if it’s true then I hope she does the right thing. XD
