Beyonce and Tina Knowles’ companies are being sued by a Hong Kong Manufacturer, Vier International, LTD. Vier claims that House of Dereon and other affiliated companies are in breach of contract and also accusing them of RICO. In case you’re not familiar with RICO, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, it is normally affiliated with the mafia and their business tactics.

According to the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the apparel maker claims it lost more than $500,000 because clothing company Donna Loren LLC and shipping outfit HJM International were “conspirators who induced the shipment of goods to the United States with the intent to convert them or pay less than the agreed upon contract price,” says the source.

The alleged low-balling scheme reaches far and wide. Vier also names Beyond Productions LLC and House of Deréon — both companies owned by Knowles and partners — for taking part through purchase orders and requesting manufacturer specifications.

Along with looking for its $500k back, Vier is not playing around: The company included claims under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), the same law used in most Mafia prosecutions!

This is definitely nothing to take lightly. Bey Bey better find her own modern day Johnny Cochran… Be careful who you have running your businesses because they can get you into some sh*zzz.
