Beyonce facing $100 million lawsuit over dance game
Singer being sued for allegedly abandoning video game project
Daily Mail reports that games company Gate Five claims the singer "abruptly abandoned" their project for a dance-related game called Starpower: Beyonce causing them to lose a $7 million investment in the project as a result.
A judge at Manhatton's Supreme Court has rejected Beyonce's request to reject the lawsuit, after legal papers were filed against her in April this year.
Gate Five claim Beyonce was in breach of contract by backing out of the project in November 2010, and insists her actions "destroyed Gate Five's business." They are claiming her exit meant they missed out on potential profits of $100 million.
[She] drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas.
In response her lawyers say the singer only dropped the project after they failed to finance the video game in time for her involvement to continue.
