Singer Carey sues show promoter
Mariah Carey
Carey sold 110m records worldwide during the 1990s
Singer Mariah Carey has sued a concert promoter for $1m (522,000) following the cancellation of a Hong Kong show.

The 36-year-old chart-topper is seeking reimbursements for expenses related to last month's live date and alleges that fees she was due went unpaid.

Her lawyers claim she was forced to cancel the concert after One Group Investments "breached its contractual obligations", AFP news agency reports.

One Group said it was owed money and believed it "would prevail" in court.

Ms Carey's management, Handprint Entertainment, and One Group have each claimed the other was responsible for mishandling the cancelled event.

The singer was on her first tour since the release of her Grammy-winning album The Emancipation of Mimi.
