Bey might be a “Rock Hero” but this gaming company still wants their gold coins
Beyonce has been having one hell of a year. A new baby, hailed as the most beautiful woman on the planet, countless awards and now another milestone to add to the list. A big azz lawsuit. A US judge has given a video game company permission to sue Beyonce for $100 million, according to reports:
The New York Post reports that Manhattan judge Charles Ramos has given software developer Gate Five the go-ahead to proceed with their lawsuit against the ‘4’ superstar, after she allegedly pulled out of a deal to create a motion sensing computer game.
Gate Five took legal action last year when they claimed the singer had backed out of a $20 million agreement to feature in Starpower: Beyonce. Beyonce’s lawyers argued that she was entitled to walk away as the company hadn’t finalized its financial agreements, but Gate Five insisted that she had chosen to abandon the project on December 6 2010, even though she knew they were set to sign a funding deal three days later.
Beyonce could now face a date in court after Ramos ruled that the lawsuit should go ahead, as she should have given the company notice of her decision before she withdrew. The lawyer for Gate Five, who claim they were forced to fire 70 employees after the bungled deal, said he was “pleased” with the decision, while representatives for Beyonce declined to comment.
Poor Bey! While we’re sure all the stans would have loved to pretend to be her in the video game; in reality 70 people lost their jobs because she was too busy to be bothered. Do you think the company deserves compensation?
