Beyonce Sued For $100 Million By Video Game Makers

The game developers claim the pop superstar bailed on a proposed dance video game.
In an exclusive story, New York Magazine’s Vulture.com is reporting that video game production company Gate Five has filed a lawsuit against Beyonce for breach of contract. The developers are seeking an award in excess of $100 million dollars. Gate Five say they entered into a deal to create a “motion-sensing dance video game” with the pop singer entitled Staypower: Beyonce.
Vulture quotes Gate Five’s summons as accusing Beyonce 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.” The company refers to Beyonce as Ms. Carter throughout the document, referring to the singer’s marriage to Hip Hop titan Jay-Z, whose birth name is Sean Carter.
The suit also describes Beyonce as “too erratic to do business with.” Requests for comment by Vulture to Beyonce’s management have not been met. To read the full story, including further allegations from the summons, head over to Vulture.com.
