Beyoncé Knowles has settled a $100 million lawsuit against a video game company for allegedly backing out of a deal for a motion-capture dance game called “Starpower: Beyoncé.”
In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court today, lawyers for the singer and for gaming outfit Gate Five signed an agreement dismissing “all claims or counterclaims” without attorneys’ fees.
“We’ve settled amicably,” said Peter Gallagher, Gate Five’s lawyer. “I can’t discuss the terms of the settlement, but it was resolved.”
Beyonce Knowles backed out of the deal a few months ago, citing funding as the reason. While, the gamers claim Mrs. Carter backed out on a whim. It was a nasty lawsuit Gate Five sued Beyonce for $100 million and accused her of destroying their business and forcing 70 people to lose their jobs right before Christmas of last year. They really made Beyonce look like the ‘Grinch who Stole Christmas’ or the mean-spirited Scrooge. But it’s a good look that this case has settled.
Well, looks like we won’t be dancing in Mrs Carter’s shoes for this holiday. What do you think of a Beyoncé video game?
