Singer Nelly Furtado has acknowledged receiving $1 million to perform for people with apparent ties to Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi in Italy four years ago.
Furtado said via Twitter on Monday that she was paid by the Kadafi clan for a 45-minute performance in 2007 in Italy, but now plans to donate the amount.
“In 2007, I received 1million$ from the Qaddafi clan to perform a 45 min. Show for guests at a hotel in Italy. I am going to donate the $” she wrote on Twitter.
Other entertainers, including singer Beyonce and Usher, have also been associated with events tied to Kadafi.
