Lady Gaga Suing Insurance Company Over Lost Tour Income After Terror Threats
Thu, 07 Mar 2013 16:22:33
Lady Gaga is suing her insurance company over a canceled tour date that was forced to be tabled due to terrorist threats. She claims a clause in her policy means she is owed payment.
Live Nation LGTours, Mermaid Touring and Atom Factory, which are Gaga's tour promoters, her tour company and her management firm, are suing Lloyds of London, since the insurer did not enact payment on a "terrorism policy." When a show is axed due to "the sole and direct result of Terrorism and/or Sabotage or Threat," as Gaga's show planned for Indonesia back in June of 2012 was, she is entitled to payment. So she is seeking it.
Gaga is asking for $75,000 to cover the loss, plus punitive damages.
In case you don't recall, Gaga's show was canceled after a militant religious group threatened to cause trouble when she arrived on land and if she held her concert. She chose to cancel because the safety of her team, her fans and her tour was compromised, along with her own personal safety. We don't blame her for bowing it. Since she had a clause in her insurance regarding these types of incidences, she is entitled to be compensated for those lost wages. We don't blame her for seeking them.
