Beyonce is being sued by a video game company that claims it lost a $7 million investment when she backed out of the creation of her own dance game, Starpower: Beyonce, in November 2010. According to British tabloid Daily Mail, the company, Gate Five, isn’t just looking to get that $7 million back.
They’re suing for $100 million because they claim that she made them lose that amount in profits. Oh, and they also said that she caused 70 people to lose their jobs the week before Christmas. Cripes.
Beyonce’s legal team said she backed out because they failed to finance the project in time for her to get involved. She apparently tried to reject the lawsuit, but Manhattan’s Supreme Court wasn’t having it. [NME]
