Variety.com are reporting that Israeli public broadcaster KAN – the producer of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest – filed a lawsuit in a Tel Aviv court on Thursday against Live Nation and Live Nation Israel over the agreements of Madonna‘s appearance at the show final. A spokeswoman for KAN confirmed that the suit was filed, but declined to comment further.
The suit, first reported by local newspaper Yediot Aharonot, alleges that Madonna’s representatives violated the terms of their agreement and reneged on financial promises.

KAN alleges that Live Nation agreed to cover those costs but never paid up.
