Garth Brooks is suing an Oklahoma hospital for failing to name a building after his mother. The CMA Award winner is demanding that the Integris Canadian Valley Regional hospital in Yukon return his $500,000 donation because they reneged on their deal.
According to the lawsuit he filed in Oklahoma and obtained by TMZ, Garth claims the money was supposed to go towards a new hospital building that would be named after his late mother Colleen, who perished in 1999 from cancer.
But the hospital never built the structure despite a $27 million renovation and expansion project last year.
The "More Than a Memory" hitmaker now wants his money back because the hospital allegedly breached the donation contract.
The medical center insists it was just a misunderstanding, saying it hopes the dispute will reach a "swift and amicable end."
Brief and to the Point:
"Vanity leads people to utter oblivion...Garth Brooks is likely to go even deeper into the oblivion he's already in...Furthermore, Brooks must be as Broke as Hell"
