A US judge has given a video game company permission to sue Beyonce for $100 million (£62.2 million), according to reports.

The New York Post reports that Manhattan judge Charles Ramos has given software developer Gate Five the go-ahead to proceed with their lawsuit against the '4' superstar, after she allegedly pulled out of a deal to create a motion sensing computer game.

Gate Five took legal action last year when they claimed the singer had backed out of a $20 million (£12. 4 million) agreement to feature in Starpower: Beyonce. Beyonce's lawyers argued that she was entitled to walk away as the company hadn't finalised its financial agreements, but Gate Five insisted that she had chosen to abandon the project on December 6 2010, even though she knew they were set to sign a funding deal three days later.

Beyonce could now face a date in court after Ramos ruled that the lawsuit should go ahead, as she should have given the company notice of her decision before she withdrew. The lawyer for Gate Five, who claim they were forced to fire 70 employees after the bungled deal, said he was "pleased" with the decision, while representatives for Beyonce declined to comment.

In February this year, it was reported that Beyonce was working on two new albums . The singer and her husband Jay-Z welcomed their first child Blue Ivy Carter into the world in January of this year. The following month (February 8), it was reported that the couple applied to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on January 26 to own her name.

It’s the bleakest and most traumatic example of resistance against what is - that mental non-acceptance of the moment - yet it’s inevitable and inescapable that, from birth, we move towards it. This human life is short, even at its longest… but although there are medical and scientific advances in preventing and curing disease, disablement and all other ai...
