Music superstar Taylor Swift may be in some real life trouble after promoters for a country music festival are reportedly suing the "22" singer. Promoters for Capital Hoedown are suing Swift after the concert, which was due to take place in Ottawa, Canada in August of 2012, was cancelled. Promoters say Swift should pony up some of the $2.5 million paycheck she received for the gig, despite never performing. Since the concert was cancelled, refunds had to be given back to customers, totaling $1.8 million.

According to the Ottawa Citizen, FIRE USA Inc. filed the lawsuit against Swift and her management in New York last month. TMZ is reporting that the lawsuit is asking for Swift to pay the $1.8 million needed to refund customers. However, Swift's management is saying the country music superstar never made a deal with the ticket company.
What do you think? Should Swift pay the $1.8 million in refunds to customers since she never had to perform?
This isn't the first lawsuit aimed at the 23-year-old star. Back in 2010, The Hollywood Reporter, brought to light a lawsuit from the singer's former manager Dan Dymtrow. The ex-manager was claiming that Swift owed him millions for "discovering" her.
The lawsuit comes on the heels of news that Swift paid cash for a Rhode Island home according to TMZ. The cost of the house? $17 million! It's almost unheard of now-a-days for someone to pay for a home upfront in cash and that's talking about homes in a much lower price range. Swift must have a pretty big pocketbook to be able to just dump $17 million on the table like that. According to Forbes, Swift is worth over $57 million. I wonder if she has $1.8 million she can give to customers who didn't get to see her sing?
