Beyoncé sued by fans


Two women are suing Beyoncé for negligence after being trampled during her Mrs. Carter Show concert in Chicago last year.

Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson, the self-proclaimed “long-time fans of Beyoncé”, state that they arrived several hours early in order to secure better spots at The United Center. In their lawsuit the women claim that as more fans started to arrive, the crowd grew “more anxious about how, when and where the gates would be released and where ticket holders and fans were supposed to enter The United Center – none of which was explained.”

Castellanos and Davidson continue to allege that employees at The United Center opened the gates “without instruction or any reasonable system to permit an orderly entrance,” and the “rushing mob” left both of them trampled, knocked unconscious and with broken bones. They were taken to hospital to treat their multiple injuries.

They are seeking undisclosed amount in damages from Beyoncé, The United Center and Live Nation.

    Sounds to me like the venue is responsible, but of course Bey has the deep pockets and the women want attention. Unless it can be proved Bey encouraged the crowd to rush the stage, she’s unlikely to be found at fault for their injuries.

    It is not Beyonce’s fault for this happening but lets be real. Even if by some miracle these girls won their case against her it wouldn’t be any skin off her back at all she has so much money she wouldn’t even notice it was gone. Doesn’t make it right, but it also doesn’t make me feel bad for her. And yes she really does look old in that pic…and kind of like a man.

    Hmmm, honestly speaking I don’t see any Beyonce’s fault for what has happened with those women. I clearly understand that they got injured on the concert, but whose fault was it, if it was their own initiative to sneak around and to arrive much earlier to the concert in order to take the privileged places near the stage. It is an obvious thing that the closer you stand to the stage the more are your chances of getting injured, so if you accept this kind of risk, it means you are ready to all of the following consequences, unfortunately that was the price that they were supposed to pay. Yes it happens, so if they really want to sue someone, I guess they should sue a few thousands of people that have caused all of those problems they are experiencing now.

    Ha ha ha, I guess those two brats got exactly what they deserved. Who the hell they think that they are? The cleverest ones? They came to the concert much earlier in order to get the best possible seats, was it fair towards the other fans that paid same money and were same anxiously waiting for the concert? Of course not! Did anyone else besides those two “fans” get injured? No, not anyone else! So I guess came really exists, and sometimes people just get exactly what they deserve, so I am very happy that those ladies have got their punishment, next time they will double think whether they really are smarter than anyone else or not before doing the mistake, and if they will not, well what can I say, it will be their bad.

    Everything that happens happens for a reason. Yes I totally agree with the previous comments. Those ladies were not fair towards other people who were same fans as they of Beyonce, but this is human nature to be selfish and to do things that in the first place make you happy with what you are and what you represent in this society as well as in this life. That is why from one side I think that they were wrong, and from the other side even if they were wrong there is a point in the things that they are stating, if something like that has happened than the concert really was not very well planned, and I feel sorry for the people who were organizing it, as I feel that the injuries that those two women have suffered is on their conscience.
