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

A lawyer for Gate Five says the terms are confidential. A lawyer for Beyonce hasn't returned a call seeking comment.

Gate Five had said Beyoncé made a lucrative deal for a game called "Starpower: Beyoncé," then demanded a new agreement and abandoned the project. The company says it lost its nearly $7 million investment and 70 people lost their jobs.

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

If Beyonce Signed a Contract...All systems go ......Sign and Sealed. Then she is Obligated to those TERMS>

NO ONE is obligated to do ANOTHER contract, they already have ONE with everything REQUIRED for Business. If Some people lost their jobs because she wanted some DIVA,, petty crap then shame on her. A deal is a deal! You dont change your mind unless you ARE WILLING TO ABSORB OTHERS MISFORTUNES FOR YOUR.....i repeat..........YOUR Decisions.

She is a self righteous BEETCH!!!  The company could have gotten financing.  She doesn't care about the people that lost their jobs over this.  
There had to have been money to pay these people, so where is the financing issue.  I am sure using the financial angle is just a maneuver to get out of the deal, as most companies obtain financing all the time, especially in the midst of a project.

But lets focus on the real truth.....  She renegotiated that deal so that she could have an easy out.
