Judge OK’s $100M lawsuit against Beyonce; Slams her lawyers for diva behavior

A Manhattan judge is tired of Beyonce thinking she is above the law. The judge is allowing a video game company to proceed with a $100 million dollar lawsuit against the struggling singer, according to Page Six.

In court documents, the Gat Five company contends they were forced to lay off 70 employees when Beyonce walked away from a $20 million video game deal in 2010.

According to Page Six, Gate Five said it was scheduled to sign a deal with its financier on Dec. 6, 2010 — and they claim Beyoncé knew that the financing was set when she sashayed away from the agreement without warning on Dec. 3.

Beyonce’s lawyers countered that they were within their rights to walk away from the deal for a game called “Starpower: Beyoncé” because Gate Five didn’t have its financing in place.

But Judge Charles Ramos isn’t buying Beyonce’s argument. “You continue to negotiate right up until the time you pull the plug. That is not going to work with me,” Ramos told Beyoncé’s lawyers.

Finally, a judge who cannot be bought of with Beyonce and Jay Z’s money!

      So the deaf mashed potato eater(she can really hear) gets to work today and she is slamming shyt, putting her personal belonging in a box, not answering her phone and at her desk crying. I pulled her into the restroom to tell her that I’m not getting in the middle of their BS but all that is unnecessary. If you mad at them bytches tell them! I mean as long as the higher ups have talked to you and you still have a job don’t give them the satisfaction of seeing you cry.
      I mean she doesn’t do her work but shyt I aint about to let them fuggers get the best of me. I just hope she don’t eat no potatoes today!

      The stylist greased her scalp with it and put a little on her hair. She used it as a heat protectant and the results were great! She is still rocking it straight and this is from the last weekend in April. I will be washing and twisting it this weekend though.

      1. she never signed a contract

      2. she was still negoitating and THEY didn’t have financing

      3. she decided to walk away before binding herself to a contract with said company

      ……………………………..what is she responsible for? How is she liable?

      ________________________________________________________

      Actually, financing was in place on 3 Dec, she met with them on numerous occassions (over a few months) as well as the design team and verbally agreed to the video game concept adding her ideas, voice, likeness, concepts thus creating a verbal contract. She knew they hired 70+ people to create this game for her. She walked away after the game was created, because she was being a diva, and felt like she can. She best get that check book ready and make this go away quietly.

      When did verbal contract hold up in court? Judge Judy? People’s Court? Judge Mathais?

      These are serious questions!! From what I understand it has to be in writng for it to be binding. The contract will point out who is liable for what and what recourse will be taken if one or both parties don’t complete thier obligation.

      IMO it’s the company’s fault for “jumping the gun” and hiring staff before she signed the contract. Morally she may be guilty but legally she isn’t.

      @hershey

      I’m glad somebody said it! People ever heard of a verbal agreement? And where in the article did it say beyonce or her team never signed anything? It just said she walked away because the other company didnt have it’s financing in place…Which is untrue of course. Just because the company was set to “formally” sign the papers 3 days later, didn’t mean they had no financing. Of course they had financing and they were showed something along these lines in order for them to even bring about a collaborative deal with her. Beyonce got offered more money from another company and decided to bail out on this deal. I don’t blame the judge, how dare you come into my courtroom with the sorry excuse regarding financing, when they knew the company indeed had financing, and simply didn’t want to disclose to the court the real reason for backing out of the deal. The Court is not stupid, and knew there’s no way they would have gotten that far into that deal, had Beyonce or her company, not felt financing was stable. And indeed financing was stable, because no doubt in court beyonce’s attorneys could not show any evidence of the deal falling through due to financing…(evidence of this would be showing the finance company backing out, maybe causing the company to then scramble and find an alternate investor) the deal fail through because beyonce absent of integrity, but full of greed, walked away from the deal. And unless her attorney’s have better evidence of failing finances on behalf of Gate Five, beyonce will indeed lose this case, and she will no doubt settle out of court.

      @therapist911

      No, you are wrong…A verbal contract can and indeed is binding in business agreements if you can prove certain aspects. For instance, beyonce and/or her company had to agree to this deal. That can be an oral agreement. Now you’d have to prove she agreed. She no doubt collaborated with Gat Five on the product to be sold, ok’d the product, was allowed to make changes and have personal input on the product, understood what it took in order to create this product (staff), and pretty much was very much a part of the product’s existence all the way through. I’m sure the company made her aware of what it would take to produce the product, and didn’t say no, stop, we don’t have an agreement. I’m pretty sure the company told her the cost, she didn’t say no, stop, we don’t have an agreement. Failure to do that indicated her consent. And trust and believe I’m sure she had to sign off on things along the way, had creative input, discussed pricing and costs, etc. Presenting these things in a court of law shows INTENT and that she approved of the deal. The court will consider all of those factors. And she never said I wasn’t happy with the product, we couldn’t agree on “etc.”, she simply said i walked away because the company didn’t have the money. It’s the flimsiest of excuses and it didn’t fly. That’s insulting a court’s intelligence to suggest she got that far into that deal, and didn’t think they had the financing. Absurd! I’m sure prototypes were made, money was put into this project already. All of which beyonce and her team was aware of. She definitely has a responsibility to at the least, limit Gat Five’s costs by offering them something.

    187. 187

      Did some research…

      Verbal contracts are, in many cases, legally enforceable and binding on the parties who make the agreement. However, proving the terms of a verbal contract can be difficult, and usually result in a “he said, she said” disagreement. Additionally, in certain cases, verbal agreements are prohibited from enforcement by law, even if you can prove the terms of the contract.
