The suit, which is seeking a total of $106.7 million in damages, alleges that Beyonce’s actions constituted “a bad faith breach of contract so callous that, on what appeared to be a whim, she destroyed Gate Five’s business and drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas.”
Gate Five also claimed “In early December everything was still a go. And then the week of Christmas, she said that’s it, I don’t want to hear from you guys, go away, resulting in 70 people losing their jobs,” said Gate Five founder Greg Easley in an interview. “We’d much rather make a game than litigate. But we want to recover damages that Gate Five suffered.”
