Beyonce Donates Gaddafi Money to Haiti

Beyonce is such a class act. Everyone is making a big deal out of her receiving $1 million dollars for performing for Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi, but she donated that money to charity over a year ago.

B put on a special performance for members of the dictator’s family on New Year’s Eve 2009, but instead of keeping the cash for herself she gave it all away to Haiti.

Her publicist said: "All monies paid to Beyonce 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 for Haiti over a year ago.

"Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause."

The money was donated to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund, established in the wake of last year's devastating earthquake, and a spokesperson for the fund confirmed that it received the $1 million check in the weeks after the January 2010 earthquake.

B and a few other performers, including Nelly Furtado, Usher and Mariah Carey got heat for accepting money from the family, but the good news is Nelly and B already handed the mullah over to different charities.

Usher and Mariah Carey--we're waiting on you!
