LA-based Vision Entertainment Worldwide is suing Mary J Blige in a bid to get back a deposit it says it paid the singer for a show in late 2012 that she cancelled at the last minute. Vision’s lawsuit says that Blige had been booked to perform in Dallas, Texas in December 2012, but pulled out with just days to spare, alleging that the cancellation was caused when a last minute opportunity came up for the singer to perform at one of the Rolling Stones’ big shows in New York on the day before the scheduled Dallas show. CMU Daily reports that Vision says it paid Blige a $145,000 deposit which is yet to be returned. The lawsuit seeks repayment of the advance and damages.
