Beyonce donated Gaddafi-linked money to Haiti

Melbourne: A spokeswoman for Beyonce Knowles has revealed that the singer donated money received for a New Year`s Eve concert, reportedly for Libyan tyrant Muammar Gaddafi``s son, to help Haiti relief over a year ago.

The Grammy-winning singer gave the money away as soon as she learned of the Gaddafi connection to the concert at a private party on the Caribbean island of St. Barts on December 31, 2009.

"All monies paid to Beyonce for her performance at a private party at Nikki Beach St. Barts on New Year``s Eve 2009 ... were donated to the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, over a year ago," the Herald Sun quoted the spokesperson Yvette Noel-Schure as saying.

"Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the [Gaddafi] family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause," she added, saying the donated money included payments to her booking agency.
