Taylor Swift Sued After Canadian Capital Hoedown Concert Cancelled (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It looks like Taylor Swift is in trouble. The 23-year-old singer is being sued over a cancelled Canadian concert, TMZ reported.

Swift reportedly got paid $2.5 million to headline Ottawa's Capital Hoedown in August 2012, but the event was later scrapped. Front Gate Tickets, the company suing Swift, lost $1.8 million in ticket refunds, according to the Ottawa Citizen.

Reasons for the cancellation included failure to pay the city rent on time for Walter Baker Park, zoning problems and performers dropping out, according to CBC.

Swift's representatives claim she had no deal with the ticket company suing her and said they haven't seen the lawsuit.

Although, if Swift did pay the $1.8 million lost, she would still have earned $700,000.
