Mariah Carey Sues Promoter for Axed HK Tour
Adjust font size:

The production company for Mariah Carey has filed a US$1 million lawsuit against a concert promoter for unpaid fees and reimbursements for expenses relating to a cancelled Hong Kong show.

The suit alleges that the US pop diva was "greatly looking forward" to performing in Hong Kong, but was forced to cancel the show when promoter ONE Group Investments Private Limited "breached its contractual obligations."

ONE Group's chief executive Adrian Hobbs hit back, saying, "We received no reply to get our money back and we would love for the matter to go to court and the facts (to) come out and clearly she had savings by not coming."

Carey's concert was cancelled two days before it was due October 28 after her management company, Handprint Entertainment, and ONE Group pulled the plug, with each blaming the other for mishandling the event.

Production crews had already begun building the stage when the announcement came.
