Why, Beyonce, Whyyyyy??
Beyonce is being accused of causing 70 people to lose their jobs the week before Christmas!
So there was supposed to be this video game coming out that starred Beyonce called Starpower: Beyonce, and the makers of the game claim they had a deal in place in 2010 to create it.
And then Beyonce supposedly wanted more money:
According to the docs, things went awry during a "crucial moment in the project's development" when Beyonce made "an extortionate demand" for more money — even though the two sides already had a deal in place.
Gate Five claims her move "drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas" … and notes that one of the project's backers described her conduct as "morally reprehensible."
That does sound a little not cool, B!
Now the company wants the $6.7 million they put into the development, and more than $100 million they projected to make in profits if the game had been completed.
That's a pretty hefty lawsuit, and if they win, Beyonce sure will regret wanting more money! Wow!
Though, we'd like to hear her side of the story first!
B, let us know!
