Beyoncé New Years Rumors Continue: One More Link To Gaddafi Family

Yesterday, we asked: Did Beyoncé perform on New Year’s Eve for the family of Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi? Rumors had been slowly percolating that Beyoncé’s fabulous private New Year’s Eve performance at the exclusive Nikki Beach club on St. Barth was hosted by family members of Libyan dictator Col. Muammar Ghaddafi. Various of his sons are said to have held a similar New Year’s Eve bash at Nikki Beach for the past few years; last year, his son Moatessem-Billah Khadafy reportedly hired Mariah Carey to perform for $1 million.

Beyonce is rumored to have made $2 million to perform 5 songs, as we reported yesterday – and today comes one more report – sourced from someone at the party – that she did indeed make that sum – from Gaddafi:

That “private” event, MediaTakeOut.com confirmed from a party guest (who is also a celebrity), was held by the Khadafy family – the ruling family of Libya. As you may recall Khadafy and his family are accused of funding terrorists throughout the globe. And they accepted responsibility for the bombing of an airline flight – killing hundreds of people.

We still have not heard back from Beyonce’s publicist despite a further follow-up email, but it is looking more and more like our initial report – and conclusion – is being borne out.
