Taylor Swift has been hit with a huge lawsuit for allegedly keeping a multi-million dollar paycheck…despite the fact she never performed the gig!

According to TMZ, Swift has been sued over the $2.5 million paycheck she received to perform at the Capital Hoedown concert in Ottawa in August of 2012.

However, the concert never went down and $1.8 million was refunded to the customers. Swift, on the other hand, kept the $2.5 million she had been given up front.

According to the Ottawa Citizen, FIRE USA Inc. — the Florida-based company that handled ticket sales for the show — filed the suit against Swift and her management in New York last month.

In the suit, FIRE USA claims “Swift and/or through her agent Messina refused to perform and/or reschedule a new appearance,” which “amounted to a breach” of the October 2011 contract.

Organizational problems are what ultimately led to the cancellation of the concert in July. Still, Swift had already been paid a non-refundable deposit of $250,000 in late October 2011 followed by $2.2 million that December.

Customers who purchased their tickets through Evo Merchant Servies — a New York credit payment processing company — demanded a refund upon learning the concert had been cancelled…which brought the payment company to file a claim against FIRE USA for $1.8 million in losses.

According to TMZ, the lawsuit asks for Swift to use her payment to refund the $1.8 million, but Swift’s reps allege she had never made a deal with the ticket company.
