Mariah Carey has been slammed with a $2.5 million lawsuit over a series of cancelled tours in South America.
Court documents reveal that the 47-year-old songstress cancelled concerts in Chile and Argentina in October 2016, prompting the show’s promoter, FEG Entretenimientos S.A., to seek $500,000 in damages.
However, a much larger claim is now as a result of Carey’s own reporting of the cancellations. She tweeted: “Devastated my shows in Chile, Argentina & Brazil had to be cancelled. My fans deserve better than how some of these promoters treated them.”
The lawsuit argues that Carey’s comment about the promoters were “knowingly false and defamatory,” and FEG seeks $2 million in damages for her tweet alone.
