Hope She Wasn’t Born This Way: Lady Gaga Sued Over Japan Donations
This is a breaking story, and the details are still unfolding and not entirely clear. But two lawyers for 1-800-LAW-FIRM in Detroit have sued Lady Gaga, alleging that the pop diva has defrauded fans and diverted funds intended for Japan disaster relief through the sale of special rubber wristbands intended to raise money for charity. The heart of the legal action is the lawyers’ questions about how much of the money charged for the sale of each wristband, which includes the $5.00 item cost, 60 cents tax and $3.99 shipping, actually goes to disaster victims in Japan. The lawyers, Ari Kresh and Alyson Oliver, allege that the shipping charges are inflated, and Lady Gaga is pocketing excess funds which should be going to Japanese charities. We’re going to keep an eye on this story, and bring you more details as they become available. Frankly, we’re skeptical of the lawyers’ claims, but we’ll be watching this case with a fair and objective eye.
