Mariah sued $3 million for lying about canceled shows

In the past couple of months, Mariah Carey has made headlines over a series of botched concerts and live shows. It seems her latest stint of botched concerts may cost her $3 million.

Concert promoter Fenix booked Carey to play two shows in Argentina and Chile, but she pulled out of both gigs at the last minute, TMZ reports. They are seeking at least $500,000 in damages for each of the missed shows.

Interestingly enough, Carey was the first person to take legal action against Fenix, alleging that the company did not pay her for the shows and that it ultimately damaged her brand. But according to the new court docs obtained by TMZ, Fenix already paid the singer nearly 75 percent of the $703,100 bill.

But the biggest claim arises from a tweet Carey posted in response to the news the shows were canceled. Carey wrote, “Devastated my shows in Chile, Argentina & Brazil had to be canceled. My fans deserve better than some of these promoters treated them.”

In their lawsuit, the promoters say Carey’s statement was “knowingly false and defamatory.” In the countersuit, Fenix states the real reason Mariah was a no-show was due to her low ticket sales at her three shows in Brazil.

For the defamation claim, they are seeking at least $2,000,000 in damages.
