Mary J. Blige
is being sued for allegedly bailing on a concert in Dallas last December -- and according to the lawsuit, it's kinda Mick Jagger's fault.

A promotional company called Vision Entertainment Worldwide has sued Mary J. and her production company, claiming the singer agreed to perform in Dallas on December 9th, 2012 ... but canceled just a few days beforehand.

VEW claims it paid Mary a $145,000 deposit to appear ... and she never paid back the money, despite pulling the plug on the show.

VEW claims Blige blew them off because she got a better opportunity to perform at the Barclays Center with Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones on December 8th ... and she took it.



VEW is now suing for breach of contract and more -- demanding at least $145,000 in damages.

Blige's publicist Karynne Tencer tells TMZ, "Mary J did not breach any contract for a Dallas concert last December. Any claim to the contrary is false."

News Flash! Biggest news since Weinergate. The NSA, FBI & CIA think Liberace may be gay. They're not sure yet, they're still listening to his phone calls.

Its her own fault for wanting to be in jaggers shadow. She should have headlined her own show. Lame.

Luv Mary and her music, i'm sure she isn't worried about anything (as she relaxes with her Pilgrim Soap Company products) gotta love the rich and famous.

I don't buy her excuse. The Stones concert was on the 8th and the missed concert was on the 9th. Since I'm sure the concert equipment used was the Stones she could have had her people setting up in Dallas, then just catch a flight and perform the next day.

If you can read between lines...her very smart lawyers included a clause that she could cancel if a better offer came along. Of course she is going to try and keep her fee by forcing them to sue her for it.
