Amy Winehouse who pulled out of a French music festival just a couple hours before it was due to start, may be sued by organizers.
Following her sudden withdrawal from a French festival, Amy Winehouse is on the verge of facing a legal action from the organizers. BBC reported that the people behind Rock En Seine are considering to sue the singer regarding her last-minute pullout on Friday, August 29.
The organizers claimed that they were only informed of her absence two hours before the show went off. Winehouse's camp cited health concern as a reason, saying that she has taken ill at her home although paramedics claimed that they have not been summoned to her house in London on that day. Later on, her spokesperson said that she is recovering at home and required no hospital admittance.
Organizers then had to put up the announcement that states "We are very sorry about this situation and share the disappointment of the festival-goers," on their official site. A spokesperson for the festival however, refused to give out further comment on the legal threat.
Winehouse is scheduled to play at Bestival festival on the Isle of Wight on September 6.
