Singer Beyonce Knowles is being sued for $100 million after she allegedly ruined Christmas for employees of Gate Five, after demanding more moolah to appear in a dance game.
Bah Humbug! Bootylicious singer Beyonce Knowles has been called a “diva grinch” after video game company Gate Five accuses her of ruining Christmas for their employees.
The video game company claims that the singer demanded more money to appear in a dance game called “Starpower: Beyonce”.
Beyonce’s decision to ask more money caused the project’s financial investor to back out of the deal.
The lawsuit states that, “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 dance game was in development for release for Christmas 2011, but the project was scrapped after an “extortionate demand for entirely new compensation” came from Beyonce during a “crucial moment in the project’s development”.
Gate Five CEO Dareh Gregorian revealed, “It was a very shocking and disappointing turn of events that no one saw coming, and now we’re all trying to pick up the pieces.”
