Beyonce, videogame company settle lawsuit
Beyoncé has settled a New York City lawsuit that said she didn’t play fair in a deal for a videogame structured around her.
Court records show the case was closed Friday after the Grammy Award-winning singer and Gate Five LLC agreed to drop it.
A lawyer for Gate Five says the terms are confidential. A lawyer for Beyoncé hasn’t returned a call seeking comment.
Gate Five had said Beyoncé made a lucrative deal for a game called Starpower: Beyoncé, then demanded a new agreement and abandoned the project. The company says it lost its nearly $7 million investment and 70 people lost their jobs.
Beyoncé’s lawyers had said she was within her rights to get out of the deal because Gate Five didn’t have needed financing.
