Lady Gaga Sued for Allegedly Stealing Money from Japan Earthquake Charity
Lady Gaga is being accused of “stealing” a portion of the proceeds from sales of the “We Pray For Japan” wristbands she co-signed.
1-800-LAW-FIRM — a Michigan based law firm — have filed a class action lawsuit citing that Gaga pocketed a fraction of the profits, which paying consumers assumed were going directly to Japan.
Attorney Ari Kresch told Radar Online: “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.”
Gaga sold the wristbands for $5 for the wristbands, then charged another $3.99 for shipping and handling and an additional $0.60 for taxes. But the law firm claims she inflated the costs and pocketed the extra cash, refusing to reveal how much of the $5 actually goes to the Japanese victims.
The law firm’s automated phone message says that they have “uncovered evidence” that not all of the proceeds were donated to relief efforts and Gaga’s initial statements regarding the charity bracelets were “false.” The message also urges people who have purchased one more bracelets to join the lawsuit.
No …. Say it ain’t so Mother Monster?!?
