Taylor Swift sued over scrapped Hoedown festival

Taylor Swift is facing legal action after allegedly failing to return a $2.5 million advance for a Canadian concert which never took place.

According to a new lawsuit filed in federal court in New York, the Love Story hitmaker was handed the money upfront after she was booked to headline the Capital Hoedown show in Ottawa last August (12).


Organisers ended up scrapping the country music festival and Swift is accused of keeping her payment.


A spokesperson maintains Swift did not make a deal with ticket company bosses and tells TMZ.com the star has not yet seen their complaint.
