I donated Gaddafi money to charity: Beyonce Knowles

New York: R&B superstar Beyonce Knowles has announced that she donated the money earned from a performance at a private party thrown by Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi`s son, to Haiti earthquake relief.

The 2009 New Year`s eve performance had raised eyebrows and Beyonce`s spokesperson said that the singer gave the money away as soon as she learned of the Gaddafi connection, reported New York Post online.

"All monies paid to Beyonce for her performance at a private party at Nikki Beach St. Barts on New Year`s Eve 2009 were donated to the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, over a year ago," said the `Single Ladies` hitmaker`s spokesperson Yvette Noel-Schure.

"Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the (Gaddafi) family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause," she added, saying the donated money included payments to her booking agency.
