Beyonce may face million-dollar lawsuit over pulloutJune 19th, 2009 - 5:50 pm ICT by ANI
New York, June 19 (ANI): R&B singer Beyonce Knowles is facing a million-dollar lawsuit after she suddenly pulled out of a performance at Manhattan club.
The 27-year-old singer had to perform at M2 nightclub as part of the launch of her “I Am . . . Sasha Fierce” North American tour.
The nightclub owner Joey Morrissey had agreed to pay the singer 200,000 dollars for the gig.
Morrissey said that Beyonce’s representatives had even signed a contract that prompted him to spend 100,000 dollars to prepare for the show.
“They said they were too busy with the launching of the tour and that they wouldn’t have time to do the kickoff party,” the New York Post quoted Morrissey as saying.
To make up for the cancellation, Morrissey says Beyoncé offered to stop by the club “to hang out for an hour” on Sunday.
He said, “I mean, we sold tables for thousands of dollars for the show, and spent 100,000 dollars renting a soundboard and other equipment, as per their stipulations. What good does her showing up for an hour do me? They’ve been totally unwilling to agree to another show.”
Morrissey said that he’s now preparing to file suit against Beyonce, claiming his place has suffered a “loss of reputation” in addition to the sunk cash. (ANI)
