Mariah Carey sued for cancelled gigs

Mariah Carey has been accused of bailing on two South American gigs in 2016 and defaming promoters.
The singer is being sued for axing tour dates in Argentina and Chile – and blaming bosses at FEG Entretenimientos S.A. for the cancellations.
In documents obtained by The Blast, the promoters claim Carey gave them hardly any notice and no reason for scrapping the concerts, and then falsely accused them of being the cause of the drama in a tweet to fans.
She wrote: “Devastated my shows in Chile, Argentina & Brazil had to be canceled. My fans deserve better than some of these promoters treated them.”
FEG Entretenimientos bosses claim Carey’s statement was “knowingly false and defamatory”, and caused “irreparable damage” to their reputation.
They are seeking at least $500,000 (GBP361,000) in damages for each of the missed shows and $2 million (GBP1.45 million) for defamation.
Carey previously sued the promoters claiming she was forced to cancel the shows because they didn’t pay her full fee.
