Suit against Beyonce, mom dismissed

NEW YORK, April 3 (UPI) -- A New York judge dismissed a suit filed against Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles by a former associate claiming they didn't pay him commission he was owed.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Herman Kahn said he found no evidence of a written contract between Icon Entertainment CEO Greg Walker and the Knowles women so Walker wasn't entitled to commission stemming from the alliance between Beyonce and Wear Me Apparel, E! News said.

The association between Beyonce and the firm eventually led to a $15 million licensing agreement and the creation of her House of Dereon clothing line.

According to Walker's lawsuit, filed in July, Beyonce paid him $25,000 for his helping her set up marketing and endorsement deals, including the Wear Me Apparel contract, which he claimed wasn't proper compensation.

Walker also sued Wear Me Apparel, claiming the company also owed him more than the $85,000 commission he had received.
