Beyoncé sued for $100 million

A video game maker is suing Beyoncé for a whopping $100 million, after she reportedly backed out of a “motion-sensing dance video” called “Starpower: Beyoncé,” that would allow players to dance along to some of her most popular songs.

In the summons, obtained by New York Magazine, Software developer Gate Five is suing the singer 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 lawsuit, which refers to Beyoncé as “Ms. Carter,” claims that she “had already negotiated lavish compensation terms” with Gate Five to develop the game, but suddenly she “made an extortionate demand for entirely new compensation terms. 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.”

Beyoncé’s camp hasn’t released a comment on the matter yet.
