Beyonce Sued for $100 Million by Video Game Company
Beyonce is being sued for $100 million dollars after she allegedly bailed out on creating a video game.
The lawsuit, filed yesterday by video game maker Gate Five LLC, claims that Beyonce and her company Beyonce, Inc. made a lucrative agreement last summer for a “motion-sensing dance video” game called “Starpower: Beyonce,” then abandoned the deal completely after the company refused to adhere to her demands.
The suit also claims that the superstar’s decision to not follow through with the agreement drove investors away and destroyed Gate Five’s business. The software company says they lost nearly $7 million dollars in investment money, and more than $100 million dollars in potential profits from the game’s release. And not only that, but 70 people lost their jobs (the week before Christmas) as a result of the failed business venture.
Reps for the singer have yet to respond to this report.
