Mariah Carey is suing the promoters of her cancelled South American shows.

The 'Without You' hitmaker was due to perform in Chile and Argentina last year, but has accused bosses at FEG Entretenimientos for failing to pay her in full and for breaching their contract, according to documents filed by her lawyers in Los Angeles on Tuesday (10.01.17).

The 46-year-old singer claims she was forced to axe the shows due to late payments and that she deserves to be paid the total fee.

However, FEG have reportedly accused Mariah of harming their reputation by not performing.

According to the Toronto Sun, her legal representative wrote: "In the music industry everyone knows the familiar story of the deceitful promoter that promises to pay and fails to deliver.

Mariah Carey hits back at New Year’s Eve lip-sync debacle: 'They Foiled Me'

  Mariah Carey hits back at New Year’s Eve lip-sync debacle: 'They Foiled Me' Mariah Carey has made headlines yet again after her New Year’s Eve performance was ruined by a series of technical difficulties. With the performance having gone viral, Mariah Carey only issued an audio statement yesterday (8 January) via Twitter, blaming the event producers. “It’s a shame that we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalise on circumstances beyond our control. It’s not practical for a singer to sing live and be able to hear themselves properly in the middle of Times Square with all the noise, the freezing cold, the smoke from the smoke machine, thousands of people celebrating, especially when their ear monitors were not working at all. Listen, guys: they foiled me. Thus, it turned into an opportunity to humiliate me and all those who were excited to ring in the New Year with me.” Responding to Mariah’s claims that the producers of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve sabotaged Carey’s performance, Twitter users reacted both supportively and angrily to her claims. @MariahCarey stop being shady, stop being rude, stop lipsynching, stop the diva attitude, be humble just like the old mariah. — Etchoserang Kabute (@mushroomako) January 8, 2017 @MariahCarey your fans love you always. Anyone with a brain knew it was a technical difficulty + not your fault.

Mariah Carey is suing back at South American concert promoters after she canceled shows in Argentina and Chile last year because they didn't pay her in full. According to a lawsuit filed on Tuesday, January 10 in L.A. County Superior Court, Mirage Entertainment as Carey 's management sued FEG Entretenimientos for breach of contract, claiming their late payments gave Carey the right to cancel and be paid in full.

"This lawsuit filed in part not only to confirm the multiple breaches of the contracts by FEG ... but to warn the artistic community not to trust any promises from FEG."

The legal documents state that FEG had agreed to pay a fee to the pop superstar and it was expected that they would pay in installments.

They also claim that Mariah's management pulled the shows because no payments had been made near to the time of the shows in October.

And it also stated that the 'We Belong Together' singer lost other business opportunities because she had committed herself to the performances.

Mariah hasn't had much luck of late, with her 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest' getting plagued with technical difficulties and on Monday (09.01.17) her Hollywood Walk of Fame star was vandalised.

The buxom blonde had her star graffitied on with an ink marker when someone wrote a question mark at the end of her name.

The Los Angeles Police Department are now said to be searching for the culprit who drew on the star, which has now been fixed for a reported $1,500.

It is thought it may have been done in response to Mariah's disastrous New Year's Eve performance at Times Square.

Nick Cannon: 'Mariah Carey got flustered during New Year's Eve disaster' .
Mariah Carey's ex-husband Nick Cannon could see the singer was getting "flustered" during her disastrous performance on New Year's Eve. The Hero singer was the headline act for the Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest show in New York's Times Square, but her set quickly went downhill when her in-ear monitors failed and left the star awkwardly dance onstage as a backing track played behind her. Mariah has since blamed the production team, and during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing on Monday (16Jan17), Nick addressed the situation. "Anyone who knows about performing (knows that) things like that can go wrong on live television," he said. "I do live television all the time; I screw up on America's Got Talent all the time, so when there are people in your ear saying things and stuff, I think she got a little flustered." Nick went on to praise the mother of his two children for using her diva status to her advantage as she attempted to bounce back from the flub. "But being the diva she is, she said, I'm just going to walk around and pose for seven minutes. And like Ryan Seacrest says, she can do no wrong. So she worked through it," Nick smiled. Following the performance, Mariah took to her Twitter page to release an audio snippet explaining her side of the story for the first time.
