Beyonce Threatened With Lawsuit Over Canceled Show

Beyonce is being threatened with a million-dollar lawsuit after she canceled a show at a Manhattan club.

Beyonce was supposed to perform at club M2 on Saturday as part of her I Am... Sasha Fierce tour, but pulled out of the performance. She was reportedly going to make $200,000 off the performance.

According to M2 club owner Joey Morrissey, her camp suddenly canceled the gig, which Morrissey had spent $100,000 preparing for.

Morrissey told the NY Post, "They said they were too busy with the launching of the tour and that they wouldn't have time to do the kickoff party."

He continued, "I mean, we sold tables for thousands of dollars for the show, and spent $100,000 renting a soundboard and other equipment, as per their stipulations. What good does her showing up for an hour do me? They've totally unwilling to agree to another show."

So now he's filling a million dollar lawsuit against her, saying he suffered "loss of reputation" in addition to the lost cash.

He said, "If Beyonce cancels and doesn't give us a new date, this hurts our credibility in night life."
