Revered pop star Mariah Carey is being countersued by promoters after two cancelled South American concerts.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, last January, Carey sued FEG Entretenimientos, claiming that she was not paid in full before the agreed upon date for two shows in Argentina and Chile in 2016.
Now the promoter has hit back, claiming that Carey didn’t have the right to “unilaterally cancel” the two performances. According to the complaint, the singer was required to give promoters 48 hours to fix any failure of its obligations before she could terminate the agreement.
"Carey’s unilateral cancellation of the Argentina and Chile Performances — a mere three days prior to the Argentina Performance and less than a week before the Chile Performance — constituted material breaches of her obligations under each of the Tour Agreements,” attorney Robert Allen wrote in a statement.
The complaint also claims defamation after Carey posted to her Twitter that the shows were cancelled due to promoter negligence.
The news comes just over a month since Carey rescheduled her Australian tour from February to October, causing her to cancel her Perth date.
