Today Gate Five, a video game company, filed a lawsuit against the songstress allegeding she backed out of a deal last year to create a game called, “Starpower: Beyoncé.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Bey made “an extortionate demand” for more money even though Beyoncé and Gate Five already had a deal in place.
“Gate Five seeks to hold Ms. Carter, the iconic pop star known as Beyoncé, along with her company, Beyoncé, Inc. accountable 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 summons goes on to say Gate Five lost the $6.7 million it had invested in the video game project, as well as $100 million more in profits it would have made off of the game.
The lawsuit alleges Beyoncé’s actions were “so unscrupulous that her then manager (who is also her father) renounced them.” She and her former manager, her father Mathew Knowles, parted ways last month.
At press time, Beyoncé’s camp has yet to comment on Gate Five’s lawsuit and she has 30 days to file a rebuttal to Gate Five’s claims with the court.
