Grammy award winning singer Beyoncé Knowles has settled a $100 million lawsuit with video game company Gate Five for allegedly backing out of a deal to create her own motion-capture dance game.

NDTV reports, lawyers for both parties signed an agreement dismissing “all claims or counterclaims” without legal fees and filed the papers in Manhattan Supreme Court on June 14, 2013.

Peter Gallagher, the gaming company’s lawyer told the New York Post’s Page Six: “We’ve settled amicably. I can’t discuss the terms of the settlement, but it was resolved.”

The 31-year old singer reportedly dropped out of the deal last winter because she claimed that Gate Five had not secured the funding they had promised. According to the company, Beyonce had ditched the deal and claimed it lost its nearly $7 million investment, also causing 70 people to lose their jobs.

The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Darn! We were looking forward to playing “Starpower: Beyoncé” ;)

Beyonce who is the concert director and co-founder of  the Chime For Change, is super excited to come together with other strong women for such a great cause.

“I am really happy that so many amazing artists and presenters have come together to support Chime For Change. Our goal is to have a great time together while we unite and strengthen the voices of girls and women around the world,” she said.

Other celebrity guest include Freida Pinto, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former British Prime Minister Gordon and wife Sarah Brown, and Hollywood star Jessica Chastain.

Madonna, who won’t be performing at the concert but is one of the presenters at the event said, “Sixty percent of the children in the world not in school are girls! Two-thirds of the world’s illiterate are women! I do not accept this. We need to change this and we will change this.”

The Chime For Change initiative is led by Marianne Pearl, the wife of former Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was held captive in Pakistan and beheaded by Al Qaeda in 2002.
