What Did Beyonce Do With That Gaddafi Money?

March 2, 2011 / Posted by:

Beyonce didn’t donate it to that photo bomb beauty in the back for saving this shot. Instead Basement Baby’s sister donated the $1 million she was paid to perform for Gaddafi’s son. Back in 2009, Beyonce stuffed 1 million crisp dollar bills up into her lacefront after she sang at a New Year’s Party hosted by Gaddafi’s son in St. Barts. Beyonce’s rep issued a statement once everybody started to throw her a “that blood money wig sure looks purdy” side-eye for performing for that crazy bitch’s family.

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 Qaddafi family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause.

If your name is Whitney and you need to see the receipts, the Clinton Foundation has confirmed that they received Beyonce’s $1 million donation.

Nelly Furtado also performed for the Gaddafi family in 2007 and Tweeted yesterday that she’s going to donate the $1 million she made for that 45-minute show to charity.

HuffPo says that both Mimi and Usher were also paid $1 million to perform for the Gaddafi family. Usher hasn’t said shit, but Mimi’s response was this:

A face that says: “Um. Ahs already spent it.”
