It's game over for Beyoncé and the video game company that's suing the "Bootylicious" beauty.
The sexy superstar is portrayed by Gate Five LLC as a Grinch who "destroyed" its business and "drove 70 people into unemployment" one week before Christmas.
In a suit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, the company says Mrs. Jay-Z abruptly bailed out on a joint venture to commercialize the video game Starpower: Beyoncé. Gate Five lost its $6.7 million investment, the suit says, as well as more than $100 million in profits the company would have earned if the deal survived.
"Her actions were so unscrupulous that her then-manager [who is also her dad] renounced them, while a senior executive of the company...condemned her conduct as 'morally reprehensible' in an email he sent to one of her talent agents," the suit says. Beyoncé and her rep could not be reached." SOURCE
