According to Page Six, a New York club owner is upset with Beyonce after shelling out $300,000 to the pop singer for a contracted performance.
M2 owner Joey Morrissey agreed to pay the singer $200,000 for the gig, he says.
But on Wednesday, Beyoncé’s people suddenly pulled the plug on the performance, despite having signed a contract that had prompted Morrissey to spend $100,000 preparing for the show, according to the clubowner. “They said they were too busy with the launching of the tour and that they wouldn’t have time to do the kickoff party,” Morrissey tells Page Six.
To make up for the cancellation, Morrissey says Beyoncé offered to stop by the club “to hang out for an hour” on Sunday. He adds, “I mean, we sold tables for thousands of dollars for the show, and spent $100,000 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.”
As a result, Morrissey says he’s now preparing to file suit against Beyoncé
Maybe Papa Knowles set that one up.
