Lady Gaga Sued for Charity Scam


Lady Gaga has been accused of pocketing proceeds from the sales of “We Pray for Japan” wristbands and the bizarre singer is now facing legal action.

Gaga said on her website that all proceeds from the sale of the “We Pray For Japan” wristbands were going to the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

But a Michigan law firm says that’s not true. “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 with 1-800-LAW-FIRM, which is based in Southfield, Michigan.

That cause being Japan’s disastrous earthquake and tsunami on March 11 that caused an estimated $200-billion worth of damage.

“Everyone should come and visit this beautiful place. This is one of my most favorite places on earth,” Lady Gaga has said in the past.

But soon in a Michigan federal courtroom, the poker face showdown over a $5-million lawsuit could kick off.

“But when you use your celebrity and your power as a musician to take money from people under false pretenses, that’s just wrong,” said 1-800-LAW-FIRM attorney Alyson Oliver.

Lady Gaga charges $5 for a “We Pray for Japan” wristband, another $3.99 for shipping and handling and $0.60 for tax. The lawsuit alleges that Gaga got greedy by inflating the shipping cost and pocketing the extra and refusing to disclose how much of the $5 actually goes to the Japanese victims.

Since Lady Gaga has sold these wristbands across the country, it is alleged that she has now violated consumer protection laws in every single state.

The suit also claims Gaga never disclosed how much of the $5 bracelets was actually going to Japan relief.
