Lady Gaga Facing A Lawsuit Over Japan Charity Wristbands?

28 June 2011

Lady Gaga is reportedly facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit over the sale of charity wristbands she created to raise money for the Japanese tsunami and earthquake relief fund.

Gaga designed the bracelet herself and sold them to fans, with the proceeds donated to clean up programs after the tsunami.

But attorneys from a law firm in Michigan have now filed a lawsuit against the singer, alleging she overcharged fans for shipping and pocketed some of the postal costs.

The $5 million law suit names Gaga as a defendant, as well as a number of her affiliated companies, and seeks compensation and statutory damages, including a refund for all of the plaintiffs who bought wristbands.

Alyson Oliver, partner of the 1-800-Law-Firm, says, "While we commend Lady Gaga for her philanthropic efforts, we want to ensure that claims that 'all proceeds will be donated to Japan's earthquake relief efforts' are in fact true. Our intention with this lawsuit is to uncover any improprieties committed by Lady Gaga and appropriate the full donations assumed to the victims in Japan."

Do you think this is true? We doubt Gaga would deliberately overcharge her fans! She has been a very vocal supporter of the Japanese relief fund.
