Gaddafi fees donated: Beyonce
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.
