Taylor Swift reportedly sued over scrapped hoedown festival


Singer Taylor Swift is reportedly facing legal action after allegedly keeping a $2.5 million advance for a Canadian concert which never took place.

According to TMZ, a lawsuit was filed in federal court in New York which claims that Swift was given the money upfront after she was booked to headline the Capital Hoedown show in Ottawa, Ontario, last August. Organizers ended up cancelling the country music festival, and Swift is accused of failing to return her payment.
