Mariah Carey has another legal issue on deck.
Mariah Carey may have had herself a redemption of sorts this past New Year's Eve, when she took to the stage for another grand (and trouble-free) performance in New York City. However, that positive momentum may have been snuffed out by this latest news, which is putting Mimi on the receiving end of a lawsuit that is trying to hit her up for millions of dollars.
According to The Daily Mail, Carey is being sued for $3 million by the promotion company Fenix over a pair of cancelled 2016 concerts in South America. Carey had originally sued the promoters over the same shows, which were supposed to go down in Argentina and Chile during her Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour, but the singer ultimately withdrew from those previously scheduled appearances. Carey claims that Fenix didn't pay her fees that she thought she was due, which supposedly hurt her brand as a performer. However, in new legal docs, the promoter has stated that over $700,000 was paid to the songstress, which represented nearly 75 percent of what she owed in total.
Earlier on in this saga, E! News reported that Carey is seeking to be paid in full for the cancelled shows, since she claims that the unfulfilled dates had to do with how the promoters gave her the runaround and not her inability or unwillingness to perform. We surely haven't heard the last of this legal drama between Carey and Fenix.
