The 'Crazy In Love' singer will apparently receive no fee for the performance with Pepsi helping pay some of the costs.
Beyonce will not receive any money for performing at the halftime show of the NFL Super Bowl this Sunday (3rd February) and instead be forced to pay "hundreds of thousands' of dollars" to do so.
The 'Love On Top' singer will take to the stage in New Orleans at the weekend for one of the biggest sporting events in the world.
According to the Daily Mail, the NFL will only pay $600,000 for the production costs, meaning the singer will have to pay any additional fees herself.
"We pay the production costs for the halftime show, there is no fee for the artists," revealed NFL spokesman Greg Aiello.
President of the consultancy Sportscorp Ltd. Marc Ganis told the publication that the halftime show would be partly funded by Pepsi – who Beyonce signed a $50 million deal with earlier this year.
The 'Countdown' star has been rumoured to be joined by her Destiny's Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland on stage during the set for a medley of the group's biggest hits in recent weeks.
However, this weekend Michelle quashed such reports insisting it was simply a "rumour" but admitted she'd love to perform as a trio in the near future.
