Mariah Carey can breathe a little easier with the $3 million lawsuit filed against her and her company officially over.
On December 12, a New York judge ordered the remaining claims against Carey’s entertainment company to be thrown out in the case involving the South American concert promoter, FEG Entretenimientos S.A.
The order states the promoter’s lawyer dropped them and they failed to hire a new team by a court deadline. As a result, their counter-case against Carey was dismissed and the singer agreed to toss her original case over money she claims to be owed.
The lawsuit stemmed from legal action MiMi originally took when she claimed she did not receive proper payment for the scheduled appearances, which then forced her to cancel.

The promoters countersued and accused Mariah of defaming them in a tweet that read, “Devastated my shows in Chile, Argentina & Brazil had to be canceled. My fans deserve better than some of these promoters treated them.”
FEG wanted $3 million — $2 million for the defamation claim and another $1 million for bailing on the concerts.

Back in August, the judge dismissed the defamation claim against the singer and noted that her tweet was an “opinion.”
Mariah Carey was personally cleared of the $2 million claim but her entertainment company was still on the hook for the remaining $1 million for the botched performances until the recent dismissal.
