Software developer Gate Five has filed a $100 million breach of contract lawsuit against hip-hop star Beyonce Knowles.
According to court documents, Beyonce pulled out of a deal to create a motion-sensing dance video game. Gate Five is seeking more than $100 million for “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.” The game would be titled “Starpower: Beyonce”
The lawsuit says Beyonce “made an extortionate demand for entirely new compensation tems she wanted. When her maneuver backfired and drove away the financier (who found Ms. Carter too erratic to do business with), she pulled out of the project in breach of the agreement.”
The lawsuit also claims that the singer’s actions were “so unscrupulous that her manager renounced them.”
