Lawsuit Filed Against Lady Gaga

Monday, 27 Jun 2011 03:55 PM

A class action suited was filed against pop-sensation Lady Gaga on Saturday.

The Michigan-based law firm filing the suit contests that Lady Gaga has been scamming her fans through sales of her “We Pray for Japan” bracelets.

According to her website, all proceeds from the bracelets were for charity. The suit claims Lady Gaga inflated shipping charges as well as keept a portion of the $5 charged for the bracelet.

Regardless of claims, bracelet sales have raised $3 million to help victims of the earthquake that took place in Japan this past March, according to the Kyodo News.

Lady Gaga told US Weekly that she has been deeply affected by her tour of Japan. "The recent events here really affected me, not just because I have so many fans in Japan, but because it's hard to watch a country struggle," she told Us Weekly on Saturday. "But I can't let myself cry — I have to be strong because [everyone in Japan] has been so strong. No one gave up for a second."

When the charges were filed against Lady Gaga, she was performing at a charity concert hosted by MTV to benefit the Japanese Red Cross.
