Beyonce says she donated the money to Haiti relief. Her reps, in a statement sent to HuffPost, say, ‘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.’

Nelly Furtado was another entertainer that performed for the Gaddafi family and has since return the money she was paid.
