Mary J. Blige sued over canceled concert? The money problems and legal issues continue to pile up for the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul. Mary J. Blige’s financial woes came to light after the singer’s non-profit organization came under fire over bank loans that the singer took out for the charity. Getting slapped with lawsuits and allegedly defaulting on a bank loan appears to be just a portion of Mary’s money troubles though. It was reported awhile back that she owed $900,000 in back taxes. And now the money Mary supposedly owes has reached the millions. Mary J. Blige’s husband and manager Kendu Isaacs has gotten an angry earful over Mary’s money issues as many of her fans cite him as the one responsible for how things have turned out financially for Mary and Kendu expressed how he felt about the backlash he was getting too. Now the singer is being sued for allegedly canceling a concert that she was scheduled to do last December in Dallas, TX. And Mick Jagger is said to be the person behind the supposed show cancellation.
Here’s the report from TMZ:
A promotional company called Vision Entertainment Worldwide has sued Mary J. and her production company, claiming the singer agreed to perform in Dallas on December 9th, 2012 … but canceled just a few days beforehand.
VEW claims it paid Mary a $145,000 deposit to appear … and she never paid back the money, despite pulling the plug on the show.
VEW claims Blige blew them off because she got a better opportunity to perform at the Barclays Center with Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones on December 8th … and she took it.
The website also claims that Vision Entertainment Worldwide is suing the singer for breach of contract and more and the promotional company is demanding no less than $145,000 in damages.
