Gaga’s Lawyer Calls Ex-Boy Toy’s Claims “Unlawful”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Lawsuits, News

Lady Gaga is fighting back against ex-boyfriend music producer Rob Fusari’s lawsuit that claims that he basically made her and should receive a $30.5 million settlement for monies she cut him out of. Pop the hood for more on Gaga’s legal lam.

Lady Gaga is firing back at a music producer who claims he launched her career and is suing her for $30.5 million.

Her lawyer said in a court filing made public Friday the agreement at the heart of the suit was “unlawful.”

Song writer and music producer Rob Fusari filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Manhattan against the Grammy Award-winning performer. He said his protege and former girlfriend, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, ditched him as her career soared.

Lady Gaga lawyer Charles Ortner wrote in his response that the arrangement was “structured in such a way as to mask its true purpose — to provide to the defendants unlawful compensation for their services as unlicensed employment agents.”

Ortner wrote that Fusari and his company violated statutes that prohibited them from “acting as employment agents without a license and charging Lady Gaga an unlawful fee for their purported services.”

Fusari’s lawyer, Robert S. Meloni, called the claim “ludicrous” in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

“Fusari is a PARTNER in the Team Love LLC with Gag and her father (through their company Mermaid),” Meloni wrote. “Rob was no more of an ’agent’ for her than she is a Roman Catholic nun.”

Being a partner is one thing, this guy is running around claiming Gaga owes him for her image. Last time we checked he’s not the one walking around wearing no pants! She earned that money the hard way!

    If anyone should be suing GaGa for image it should be an alternative NYC model named Raquel Reed. Google her people. She’s huge on myspace and all over the web. I remember seeing her online a few yrs ago way before GaGa hit the scene. And u look at GaGa’s pics u can see how she evolve. Just compare to that chicks, GaGa’s style isn’t original at all. I’m sure the people styling her have myspace pages and gained inspiration from somewhere. So this dude needs to sit down.
