Avril Lavigne is reportedly suing the live concert streaming company 2VLive for $375,000. 

The "Complicated" singer is suing the company for that sum after she signed a contract with them to play a concert in New York City for $500,000 on September 25, 2013. She was also slated to do promotional appearances. According to the TMZ report, Lavigne was to get paid out in three installments, but so far she has only received the first for $125,000. The final two installments were to be split-up into $300,000 and $75,000. She filed the 23-page lawsuit in Los Angeles. 

According to the lawsuit, she also signed a deal with an affiliate of 2VLive that creates video greeting cards. She was supposed to net 15% from that deal. The lawsuit claims she has yet to see any money from that deal as well.
