Judge Forwards $100 Million Lawsuit Against Beyoncé

On Tuesday, December 6, Justice Charles Ramos of Manhattan’s Supreme Court advanced a $100 million civil case pending against Beyoncé. Jay’s wife was slated to feature in a video-game called “Starpower: Beyonce,” but backed out of the deal. The game’s maker, Gate Five LLC, claims the move caused an investment company to cancel funding for the game. 

Justice Ramos denied the queen of pop’s plea to dismiss the suit, which according to the plaintiff, stemmed from 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].”

Ramos ruled that the pregnant singer “double crossed” Gate Five, who claims that she made an “extortionate demand” for a bigger paycheck shortly before dropping out of the contract signed in June 2010. Bey’s legal team maintains innocence and purports the plaintiff had not provided funding by mid-November 2010 as promised. Hopefully the singer’s legal stress won’t affect her child.
