Beyoncé is being sued for $100 million by a videogame maker. A judge ruled that the lawsuit could be filed because Beyoncé allegedly backed out of a deal after making an “extortionate demand” for more money. The judge explained that Beyoncé double crossed the firm when she abandoned its project to make a dance videogame.
The lawsuit accuses Beyoncé of 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 2010.” The suit also claims she bailed at the last minute on the project for a videogame called “Starpower: Beyoncé” after making “extortionate” demands for more money. Beyoncé’s lawyer’s claim she had every right to walk because the game-makers hadn’t gotten money for the project by a deadline.
