Look what just flash across my screen, had to come post it real fast because alot of us are Bey fans:

Sasha Fierce better trade in her cut-out latex bodysuits and mile high stilettos for a killer business suit.

Beyoncé Knowles clothing line House of Deréon is being sued by Hong Kong manufacturer Vier International Ltd. for breach of contract, reports WWD.

According to the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the apparel maker claims it lost more than $500,000 because clothing company Donna Loren LLC and shipping outfit HJM International were “conspirators who induced the shipment of goods to the United States with the intent to convert them or pay less than the agreed upon contract price,” says the source.

The alleged low-balling scheme reaches far and wide. Vier also names Beyond Productions LLC and House of Deréon — both companies owned by Knowles and partners — for taking part through purchase orders and requesting manufacturer specifications.

Along with looking for its $500k back, Vier is not playing around: The company included claims under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), the same law used in most Mafia prosecutions!

Grammy winner or not, looks like Beyoncé might need to put her “Ego” aside and bring her legal A-game.

Meanwhile, success still smells sweet for the 28-year old singer. Beyoncé recently threw a launch party for her new fragrance

now the big question is what will this do to her image?  lets hope nothing however remember the mess they had going with the originally members of Destiny’s Child??

Word on the street is they where beat out of money especially ex member Letoya Luckett (one of the sexiest females alive) whom co- wrote alot of their earlier hits…so is this bad timing or just a case of what goes around comes around?
