Looks like Beyoncé’s pockets might be about to take a hit. New York Daily News reports that Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles Ramos just approved a lawsuit that levels charges of breach of contract against the pop star.

We first reported on this case back in April, when video game developer Gate Five served a summons alleging that Beyoncé had broken her word regarding a motion-sensing dance video game called Starpower: Beyoncé. The company, who says their backer pulled out of the deal because Beyoncé was “too erratic to do business with,” says the star “double crossed” them. According to Gate Five, after negotiating a deal, she came back with an “extortionate” demand for more money, and then backed out completely after the financing fell through. Beyoncé’s lawyers tried unsuccessfully to block the suit; now the company has the go-ahead to sue for $100 million.
