Taylor Swift might want to consider using Uber to get around in the future.
The “Shake it Off” singer’s personal services company, Firefly Entertainment, has been slapped with a lawsuit by a security firm that claims it was stiffed on the bill for two SUVs to cart Swift and her entourage around New York.
In the suit, filed in New York Supreme Court on Monday, APG Security claims that it contracted with Firefly, which “provides event, management and personal services to the entertainer Taylor Swift and her family,” to “provide chauffeur and related services” to Swift and her entourage in the New York City area.
Things started to go south pretty quickly, according to the lawsuit. Firefly claims that, less than a month after entering the contract, a Firefly representative sent APG a list of issues to “remedy as soon as possible,” including “the provisions APG was supposed to have in the vehicle when transporting Ms. Swift” and “under what circumstances they could speak to her.”
Later, the lawsuit claims, Firefly asked APG to secure two more vehicles for Swift’s use. APG entered three-year leases for the use of two Chevy Suburbans at rates of $984.44 and $1,107.97 per month, the complaint says, with Firefly agreeing to reimburse the company for the leases.
In late July, Firefly claims, Firefly told APG that it was terminating their contract, and has so far refused to assume the leases or buy the vehicles, even though the contract noted that Firefly was responsible for any vehicle-related losses that APG suffered “due to the termination of this contract,” the lawsuit says.
Alleging breach of contract and unjust enrichment, APG is seeking unspecified damages.
Firefly has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
