Beyonce Does A Controversial New Year’s Gig With Qadaffi’s Son In Attendance

Depending on where you read it, Beyonce either performed at a private New Year’s Eve party in St. Barts thrown by Hannibal Qadaffi, son of Lybian dictator Muammar al-Qadaffi, or Qadaffi was simply in attendance at the gig.

Either way, this might be the most leg we’ve ever seen of Bey—and, yes, there’s video!

In fact, UNITED4LIIFE, who posted a few clips on YouTube, commented (in lower case), “it was just a coincidence that khadaffes son was there, no one knew he would be there. the press are making up stuff again.”

The five-song set went down at the Nikki Beach club on December 31, and Beyonce is said to have been paid upwards of $2 million. Jay-Z, Bon Jovi, Lindsay Lohan, Usher, Russell Simmons and Microsoft founder Paul Allen were also reported to be among the 300 people in attendance.

Meanwhile, Qadaffi is alleged to have broken his wife’s nose during a fight in London the week prior. You can start to see how this might not look too good for “Independent Women” singer Beyonce.

At any rate, here are two video clips from the New Year’s Eve show. Warning: semi-decent video, godawful sound!
