After canceling a 2008 concert at Croke Park in Ireland, MCD Productions has filed a lawsuit against Prince for 2.2 million euros, plus interest.
Apparently, the compensation amount mentioned (above) was decided in Ireland's High Court, but the singer never paid up.
Here's what was written about it in court documents:
"MCD seeks this Court's recognition of judgment of the High Court of Ireland entered against the Defendant Prince Rogers Nelson on March 26, 2010 in the amount of €2.2 million [euros].
“The judgment resulted from an action commenced by MCD following Prince's cancellation of a concert that was scheduled to take place on June 16, 2008 in Ireland."
"…there is now due, owing and unpaid on the Judgment the sum of €2,200,000.00, together with interest at the legal rate of 8% pursuant to applicable Irish law from and after March 26, 2010."
Sounds like you may have no option but to pay up, Prince!
Let this be a warning to artists out there who may be reading this: NEVER CANCEL A CONCERT IN IRELAND!
Do U think Prince should pay up? Or should he fight this?
