Beyonce Sings At Gadaffi (also Kahadafi) Party on NYE Despite Previous Terrorist Ties!

When a friend of mine reported on her Facebook page that she just went to a great party where Beyonce' sang and it was hosted by the Khadfafi family I said to a staff member of Celebrity Wire "this couldn't be the dictator from Libya's family splurging a little oil money can it?". Sure enough it was and I admit I was a little shocked (not much shocks me these days) and more disappointed. If you were a famous public artist like Beyonce would you sing at a well known terrorists sons party for 2 million dollars? Even more would it help your decision if the son had his own unique criminal record that also had a reported serious history of domestic violence? Well I guess the answer for Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z is simple: 2 mill is still two mill and let's party. Other reported guests at this wonderful New Years Eve bash were reportedly Lindsay Lohan, Russell Simmons, Usher and perhaps even Billionaire Paul Allen. Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, also known as Colonel Gaddafi; born 1942) has been the de facto leader of Libya since a coup in 1969. "Throughout the 1970s, his regime was implicated in subversion and terrorist activities in both Arab and non-Arab countries. By the mid-1980s, he was widely regarded in the West as the principal financier of international terrorism. Reportedly, Gaddafi was a major financier of the "Black September Movement" which perpetrated the Munich massacre at the 1972 Summer Olympics, and was accused by the United States of being responsible for direct control of the 1986 Berlin discotheque bombing that killed three people and wounded more than 200, of whom a substantial number were U.S. servicemen. He is also said to have paid "Carlos the Jackal" to kidnap and then release a number of Saudi Arabian and Iranian oil ministers. In August of 2003, Libya wrote to the United Nations formally accepting 'responsibility for the actions of its officials' in respect of the Lockerbie bombing and agreed to pay compensation of up to 2.7 billion dollars or up to 10 million to each of the families of the 270 victims." All of that seems like a good reason to now celebrate New Years Eve with the Gaddafi family in 2010. After all it's a new decade and they haven't committed any terrorism that we know of lately and they have a lot of oil money. So let's party with them babe; absolutely let's party!!!. The host of the party was officially reported to be: Muammar Gaddafi's fifth eldest son, Motassim Bilal (Hannibal) Gaddafi, (as reported and noted by Wikipedia) "once worked for General National Maritime Transport Company, a company that specializes in Libyan oil exports. He is most notable for being involved in a series of violent incidents throughout Europe. In 2001, Hannibal attacked three Italian policemen with a fire extinguisher; in September 2004, he was briefly detained in Paris after driving a Porsche at 90 mph in the wrong direction and through red lights down the Champs-Élysées while intoxicated; and in 2005, Hannibal in Paris allegedly beat model and then girlfriend Alin Skaf, who later filed an assault suit against him.[68] He was fined and given a four month suspended prison sentence after this incident. In December 2009 police were called to Claridges Hotel in London after staff heard a scream from Hannibal's room. Aline Skaf, now his wife, was found to have suffered facial injuries including a broken nose, but charges were not pressed after she maintained she had sustained the injuries in a fall[69].
On 15 July 2008, Hannibal and his wife were held for two days and charged with assaulting two of their staff in Geneva, Switzerland and then released on bail on 17 July. The government of Libya subsequently put a boycott on Swiss imports, reduced flights between Libya and Switzerland, stopped issuing visas to Swiss citizens, recalled diplomats from Bern, and forced all Swiss companies such as ABB and Nestlé to close offices. General National Maritime Transport Company, which owns a large refinery in Switzerland, also halted oil shipments to Switzerland.[70] Two Swiss businessmen who were in Libya at the time have, ever since, been denied permission to leave the country, and even held hostage for some time.[71] (see Switzerland-Libya conflict).
At the 35th G8 summit in July 2009, Gaddafi called Switzerland a "world mafia" and called for the country to be split between France, Germany and Italy."
Doesn't sound too bad to me; perhaps Rihanna would have liked that gig? No I don't think so! What I do think is that when there is a lot of money on the table that pretty and famous people can be tantalized by it and then other jetsetters (like my really nice friend) will follow and every once in awhile it will culminate in an embarrassing moment that just doesn't look or feel or smell right. Because the whole thought of this party doesn't seem like it deserves any endorsement at all. If it is any consolation I heard it was a very good party and that whoever was paid to plan it did their job well. But also whoever sadly planned the Lockerbie bombing also did their job. I wonder whether Beyonce and the others involved in this NYE show are going to put on a concert for the families of those victims or the other terror victims of the Libyan regime. Better yet why not donate the money you made on this to Libya's terror victims and their families.

Has Hollywood style glitz and glamour become more important than right and wrong? Has money become the driving force for Celebrities like Beyonce or others? At Celebrity Wire we don't think it is cool to cover or hang out with celebs at any cost or at the sacrifice of right and wrong so we will say no to events like this one! We do think that Beyonce and Jay Z are generally likable good people and incredible talents. We also think highly of Russell Simmons and Usher and even at times; Lindsay Lohan. I would love to count Paul Allen as a friend or investor (as he is in my sisters company). But I cannot think that attending an event like this with people like this no matter what yacht it is on or how much money a person has (in this case "Hannibal Gaddafi") is cool, admirable or acceptable. I hope next time they check the invitation twice and say no. It wasn't worth all the bad publicity or Karma that comes with this kind of party. However we do wish everyone Peace, Love and Happiness and No Terrorism (including the Gadaffi's) in this year and every other.

Jason Davis "Gummi Bear" Enters Rehab

We want to wish our good friend and cast member of one of our shows Jason Davis a speedy recovery and healthy life and clean living! As reported Jason Davis entered rehab on Wednesday for a reported drug problem. He was assisted by his brother Alex and by Tom Arnold in an intervention. Jason's mother Nancy Davis released this statement to "My son Alexander and Tom Arnold went to help my son Jason, who is an addict, to help save his life." We certainly hope that Jason will get full support from his family in this effort to feel better. Jason has suffered from painful illnesses in the past few years that unfortunately lead to this problem. Jason Davis is a funny and kind and bright young man with a good future without drugs and we hope that will be how his 2010 turns out. Tom Arnold deserves kudos for his caring and friendship in this situation.

Our prayers and best wishes are with you Jase!
