Beyonce faces £60m diva grinch lawsuitBeyonce has been branded a 'diva grinch' who caused 70 people to lose their jobs the week before Christmas, after allegedly pulling out of a video game contract.
Game company Gate Five are suing the singer for breach of contract claiming that she reneged on making dance game 'Starpower: Beyonce' after demanding more money.
Papers filed in court by Gate Five, who are claiming she lost the company $100 million in profits, accuse her of a 'breach of contract so callous that... she destroyed Gate Five's business, and drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas'.
The company also alleges that she 'made an extortionate demand for entirely new compensation terms she suddenly decided she wanted'.
The documents go on to say: "Her actions were so unscrupulous that her then manager... [her father, Matthew Knowles] renounced them, while a senior executive of the company that had agreed to finance the project condemned her conduct as 'morally reprehensible'."
Gate Five are seeking $7 million in compensation plus $100 million in lost potential profits.
Beyonce has yet to comment on the claims.
