Beyonce delivered an official statement this week about donating her Gadhafi acceptance fee of $2 million. The singer earned the lumpsome after performing for the Gaddafi family at a New Year’s day gig. Pop songstress Nelly Furtado tweeted that she donated hers to charity. Here’s Beyonce’s official statement.
“All monies paid to Beyoncé for her performance at a private party at Nikki Beach St. Barts on New Year’s Eve 2009, including the commissions paid to her booking agency, were donated to the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, over a year ago. Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the [Gadhafi] family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause.”
