Lady Gaga Accused Of Scamming… Her Own Charity?

Lady Gaga is known for her empowering songs like “Born This Way” and her humanitarian work, so it comes as a surprise that she’s being accused of scamming her own charity… right? After all, so many rumors have been spread about Gaga that turned out to NOT BE TRUE. According to RadarOnline, Gaga is rumored to be “facing a courtroom showdown after being accused of ripping off her own Japanese earthquake charity.”

The accusation comes after a message was left on the number 1-800-LAW-FIRM, which claims that the “Born This Way” singer scammed money from the sale of her “We Pray For Japan” wristbands, whose funds were supposed to go to the victims of the disasters.

“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 for Southfield, Michigan-based 1-800-LAW-FIRM.

Lady Gaga charged $5 for the bands, another $3.99 for shipping and handling, and 60 cents for taxes. But 1-800-LAW-FIRM claims she inflated the costs and pocketed the rest of the money, refusing to reveal just how much of the $5 was REALLY spent on its original intentions.

Other defendants named in the suit include the fulfillment house, Bravado International Group Merchandising Services, Universal Music Group, House of Gaga Publishing and Live Nation Merchandising, reports E! Online.

The suit seeks unspecified compensation as well as punitive damages.

Reps for Lady Gaga have not commented.
