In response to LADY GAGA's ex-boyfriend's lawsuit that says she's cheated him out of millions of dollars since their breakup (NET NEWS 3/19), LADY GAGA has fired back at ROB FUSARI, saying he tried to take advantage of "an inexperienced performing artist".
According to court filings by LADY GAGA, FUSARI put together a deal that "was structured in such a way as to mask its true purpose" -- leeching a client's future earnings. Her lawyers called it an "unlawful" deal, "predatory and financially abusive".
FUSARI is asking for a 20% share of songwriting royalties and merchandising sales.
LADY GAGA's reps now seek damages against the producer and songwriter.
