Lady Gaga Sued Over Bracelets

When the earthquake destroyed Japan on March 11, Lady Gaga was among one of the first few celebrities to help. She began selling “We Pray for Japan” wristbands for $5 each claiming all proceeds would go towards helping the victims. Well, some of the proceeds.

A new lawsuit filed Friday claims Lady Gaga kept part of the $5 and inflated shipping charges so she could pocket more. Not only that but she counted the money she took in the donation figures, artificially inflating donation numbers to make even more money.

Gaga’s deceptive advertising and personal profits from the bracelets violated federal racketeering laws and a slew of consumer protection laws, too, the suit claimed.
“When we tried to communicate with the defendants in this lawsuit, all we got was, ‘well, some of the money is being retained, but we don’t really know how much,'” said the 1-800-LAW-FIRM lawyer who sued, Alyson Oliver. [NBC]

Funny considering Lady Gaga says money means nothing to her and that everything she does is for her art. She probably took 50% of sales and raised shipping by 100%. Let’s be realistic. She’s rich and rich people love staying that way. Money means nothing to her about as much as country fried steak means nothing to Jessica Simpson.
