Washington, August 31 (ANI): Amy Winehouse may face legal charges for pulling out of a concert in Paris hours before she was due to headline it.

The organisers of the show are planning to sue the troubled star as she failed to perform at the show due to poor health.

According to her spokesman, the 24-year-old did not travel to the Rock En Seine festival due to an illness, which resulted in her needing to rest.

Amy Winehouse was regrettably unable to perform at the Rock En Seine show in Paris due to illness. She was taken ill at her house and wasn”t able to travel to France for the concert, Telegraph quoted her rep, as saying.

The circumstances of the Rehab hitmakers cancellation angered organisers so much that they stated on the festivals website that they are planning to sue her.

Rock En Seine organisers said that there was “no explanation of the exact reasons for her absence”.

“Amy Winehouse should have arrived on the site early Friday evening. We were told by her agent at 8:00 pm that she wasn”t coming,” the statement read.

“We are very sorry about this situation and share the disappointment of the festival-goers, the statement added.

She has performed at the Glastonbury and V festivals this summer and is due to take to the stage at Bestival next weekend. Her spokesman confirmed that she would still be honouring this commitment. (ANI)
