Garth Brooks Sues Hospital for $500,000

Garth Brooks' Christmas spirit may be flagging thanks to an Oklahoma hospital that allegedly promised to name a wing after the country star's mother and then never came through.

Four years ago, Brooks gave Integris Canadian Valley Regional hospital in Yukon, Okla., $500,000 to finance a building that would be named after his late mother, Colleen, who died of cancer in 1999. But according to legal papers filed by the country singer, the hospital ultimately failed to include his mother's building in their $27 million expansion project.

A hospital spokesperson told that this is all one big misunderstanding, and that they hope for a "swift and amicable end."

Meanwhile, a source close to Brooks says the singer is devastated by the hospital's unfulfilled promise: "This deals with his mother, the home town and the people he grew up with, and is deeply personal."
