LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — In the wake of a cancelled Hong Kong performance on October 28th, Mariah Carey has filed a lawsuit against a consortium of Asian concert promoters.
The suit alleges that the promoters violated contractual obligations when they scrapped the show. She is seeking $1 million to reimburse her for expenses related to concert preparations. A lawyer for Ms. Carey said "This is an open and shut case for Mariah's company and we are confident that the company will prevail."
The target of the lawsuit, consortium ONE Group Investments Private Ltd assert that they were forced to cancel the date. In a statement on their website, they said "As promoters of the Mariah Carey Hong Kong concert, we have decided to cancel the event effective immediately due to both the poor response of public ticket sales and also due to specific last-minute demands which we find wholly unreasonable and not with the best interests of Hong Kong, us and also the fans." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
