Beyonce Video Game Lawsuit: Star Sued for $100 Million
Beyonce may be busy hiring interior decorators for her lavish baby nursery and hitting up designer boutiques for future Jayonce's maybe-December, maybe-February arrival, but Bey has more than just babies on the brain. She has been slapped with a $100 million lawsuit from video game company Gate Five for abruptly pulling out of a project with the group.
Beyonce was first hit with the lawsuit back in April with Gate Five executives alleging the pop star put 70 staff members out of work and cost the company to lose its $7 million investment in the project, along with a projected $100 million in potential profits after pulling out of the video game plans without warning.
On Tuesday (Dec. 6) Queen B's legal team applied to have the case thrown out at the Manhattan Supreme Court in New York, but judge Charles Ramos rejected the singer's request and ruled Gate Five can move forward with the lawsuit.
But breathe easy Queen B. Relatively speaking, $100 mil is just a drop in the ocean. Your combined net worth with hubby Jay-Z is estimated to be a cool $750 million!
