Gaddafi fees do­nated: Bey­once

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

Bey­once says she do­nated money she re­ceived for per­form­ing for the Gaddafi clan to Haiti re­lief ef­forts more than a year ago.

The su­per­star made the rev­e­la­tion in a state­ment on Wed­nes­day. Her an­nounce­ment comes days af­ter singer Nelly Fu­tardo tweeted that she re­ceived $ US1 mil­lion from the Gaddafi clan to per­form in Italy in 2007. Fu­tardo says she’s do­nat­ing that money to char­ity.

Bey­once’s pub­li­cist says she per­formed at a pri­vate party on the is­land of St Barts on New Year’s Eve in 2009.

Once it was re­vealed that the per­for­mance was linked to the Gaddafi fam­ily, she gave the money and com­mis­sions to earth­quake re­lief in Haiti.
