Garth Brooks Vs Hospital
January 28, 2012 by staff
Garth Brooks Vs Hospital, Anyone who’s ever heard a country song knows not to mess with a man’s mama—or a man’s money. Which makes it that much worse (ample warning and all) that an Oklahoma hospital allegedly misused the $500,000 Garth Brooks donated in honor of his late mother back in 2005.
Naturally, the 49-year-old country superstar appeared in court today for proceedings surrounding his inevitable lawsuit filed against the facility for a round of he-said, they-said.
The institution at the receiving end of Brooks’ lawsuit is the Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital in Yukon, Okla. The musician claims the donation to his hometown hospital was intended to commemorate his mother, Colleen Brooks, who passed away in 1999. According to Brooks, he was told that either a building or wing built with his donation would be named in his mom’s honor.
Unfortunately, that didn’t end up being the case and now Brooks is asking for his money back.
As for the hospital, its officials maintain the money as an “unconditional” gift, and a spokesperson confirmed that the donation remained unused and unspent in an IRS-approved account. They claim that naming agreements were not only never agreed to naming rights of any part of the facility in exchange for the donation, but that the money itself “was sent anonymously.”
