Beyonce, game firm settle lawsuit

Beyonce has settled a lawsuit that said she didn't play fair in a deal for a video game structured around her.

Court records show the case was closed after the Grammy Award-winning singer and Gate Five LLC agreed to drop it.

A lawyer for Gate Five says the terms are confidential.

Gate Five had said Beyonce made a lucrative deal for a game called Starpower: Beyonce, then demanded a new agreement and abandoned the project. The company says it lost its nearly seven million dollar investment and 70 people lost their jobs.

Beyonce's lawyers had said she was within her rights to get out of the deal because Gate Five didn't have needed financing.
