The cancellation of Lady Gaga show in Moscow last summer cost Russian Media Company UTV $1.8 million.
The company, which owns the Muz-TV music channel, filed a case with a Miami court against the American New Wave Entertainment Company to return the insurance deposit and compensation for the losses.
UTV claims it hired New Wave Entertainment to book the popular American singer to perform at the Muz-TV awards ceremony in June 2012.
“The company paid the necessary reservation deposit but the Americans could not guarantee the concert on the date needed for the channel," Muz-TV said in a statement.
UTV claims New Wave Entertainment failed to secure Lady Gaga’s performance in Moscow, despite receiving the $1.5 million advance payment and $300,000 agency fee.
