Lady Gaga Sued For $5 Million In Racketeering & Corruption Case
You know those bracelets Lady Gaga has been selling to benefit Japan‘s disaster victims? Well, some lawyers in a Detroit suburb are suing the popstar for $5 million, alleging that the whole thing is a scam.
This entire lawsuit sounds pretty ridiculous. First of all, the lawyers that are suing Gaga work for a legal network called 1-800-LAW-FIRM. Shady-sounding, right? They claim Gaga is guilty of racketeering and corruption, and that she’s pocketing some of the proceeds from the sale of her “We Pray for Japan” bracelets. Their issue is that Gaga charges $5 for the wristbands, plus a $3.99 shipping fee (though Gaga’s website actually says it’s $5.99); they believe that money is not in fact going to charity. As such, they say she’s “violated consumer protection laws in every single state.”
But these 1-800-LAW-FIRM people don’t have any actual evidence, and a case like this is exceptionally hard to prove. Of course, that didn’t stop the ridiculous legal analyst over at Detroit’s local Fox affiliate from jumping on the story a mere two-and-a-half- hours after the suit was filed. We can’t imagine Gaga is too worried about this, and she’s also no stranger to legal woes. Last year an ex-boyfriend sued her for $30 million, claiming he was the one who coined the moniker “Lady Gaga”, and earlier this year Gaga sued the makers of “Baby Gaga” breast milk ice cream.
