There's a $100 million lawsuit that was filed against Beyonce by a video game company on Tuesday, for ruining Christmas. From the New York Post:
The superstar was sued in Manhattan Supreme Court by a video game company Gate Five, which teamed up with her for a dance game called "Starpower: Beyoncé." The game was due out this November, the suit says, but went belly-up when the "Single Ladies" singer abruptly asked for more money last December. The suit calls it "a bad faith breach of contract so callous that, on what appeared to be a whim, she destroyed Gate Five's business, and drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas."
Gate Five CEO told The Post's Dareh Gregorian, "It was a very shocking and disappointing turn of events that no one saw coming, and now we're all trying to pick up the pieces." The suit claims that Beyoncé had "already negotiated lavish compensation" for the game, made an "extortionate demand for entirely new compensation" at a "crucial moment in the project's development," causing the main financier to back out.
Beyonce is no stranger to making outrageous demands. So we hear too. Stay tuned. We'll be checking in on this again.
