Lady Gaga sued for $5 Million because of scamming her own charity
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 23, 2009) HOLLYWOODTV - Lady Gaga is being sued because the famous singer is being accused of ripping off her own Japanese earthquake charity. According to a message on 1-800-LAW-FIRM, a class action lawsuit has been filed against the Poker Face star claiming that she scammed money from the sale of her 'We Pray For Japan' wristbands which should have gone to the victims of the disaster. "I'm suing Lady Gaga simply to hold her accountable for giving the money that she was raising for charity to the cause that she was trying to raise it for," said Ari Kresch, an attorney for 1-800-LAW-FIRM, which is based in Southfield, Michigan. Gaga charged $5 for the wristbands, another $3.99 for shipping and handling and $0.60 for taxes. But the law firm claims she inflated the costs and pocketed the extra cash and also refused to reveal how much of the $5 actually goes to the Japanese victims. No word has been released from Gaga's camp as of yet.
