LONDON - US singer Beyonce has said she donated the money she earned at a private party in 2009 to earthquake relief efforts in Haiti after learning the promoter had links to the family of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

The 29-year-old is the latest singer to distance herself from the Gaddafi clan, following international condemnation of his attempts to quell a rebellion in Libya and reports about stars who have performed for his entourage in recent years.

Earlier this week Canadian singer Nelly Furtado said she would give away $1 million she received to perform in Italy for the Libyan leader's family.
