Lady GaGa's NYC Legal Woes Resolved!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersLady GaGa


Looks like music producer/songwriter Rob Fusari was no match for the Lady!

Fusari had filed a $30.5 million lawsuit against GaGa in March, who in turn countersued, but both parties dropped their lawsuits, according to court papers filed this week.

No word yet on what kind of an understanding they've come to, but clearly they figured something out, and we would expect nothing less from GaGa!

Fusari had accused Lady GaGa of stealing a stage name he came up with, not giving him his due for helping her get a record deal, and also taking full credit for songs that he co-wrote.

In response, GaGa's lawyers have claimed that he was just an agent and that he had her sign an unfair agreement with him in 2006, when she was still inexperienced.

We're just happy to see this situation resolved!

Do U think Fusari is legit, or totally full of crap?

    Ouchie, GagGag! Huge legal settlements can really cut into the coke fund! Unfortunately this means we will probably see your sorry ass plastered all over the place as you struggle to make up for it. "Look! Here I am wearing a stuffed penguin on my head at the NYSE!" "Look! Here I am in a body bag with arm and leg holes walking down Broadway!"

    Time to go away, dearie.

    No match for Lady Caca? LOL!! Mario your such a dumb ASS!! We all know Lady gagas people pay you.. By no match do you mean.. how much Money did lady gaga settle for? haha she isnt original.. all this stuff is starting to come back and hit her in the face.. love it!

    Madonna should sue too. The horse-faced copycat has copied every Madonna music video, every Madonna style re-invention, every Madonna interview.

    I'm sure that, to some degree, Fusari's accusations are based in truth. But of course, everyone will side with Gaga, even if she really did rip this guy off. I'm not sure if his accusations are worth $30 million though…

  7. 7

    I wouldn't put it past her. She's copied off of Madonna, Christina Aguilera, and tons of others as well. She's WEIRD, not "original"

    i think they were both in the wrong

  9. 9

    Are you fucking kidding me????? Rob Fusari is COMPLETELY legit..it was settled because she paid him what he was owed. Rob Fusari fucking NAMED her, he basically created her, then she ditched him and cheated him out of deserved royalties

    Give them hell Lady give them hell…

    Doesn't sound like Fusari just walked away - at least not without a healthy out of court settlement. Gaga may be stubborn but she is not stupid. This sort of litigation is costly in terms of dollars and damage to a carefully contrived public image. She already has one former manager blabbing about her toxic dieting and hospitalisations. Wonder if Fusari has had to sign an agreement not
    to comment on their time together as part of the settlement.

    Perez, you are so far up this phony's ass it's sick. She used him and her late associate, Lina. It's sad. I was over her on day 2.

    Only Gaga would know if Fusari is legit on this.

    'I can't pay my producer but I'm fucking famous!' with apologies to Semi Precious Weapons.

    When it comes to gaga, this faux-artist who was created by a group of people, she's the one full of BS.

    Of course Fusari is legit.

    Just take a look at gaga before having a group of people behind her, a lot of money invested in her productions, a nice expensive wardrobe. she was a graceless girl called Stefani germanotta (of course, I won't mind spelling correctly this bitch's name).

    Manufactured bitch. Enjoy your third album, it will be your last BIG one.

    Re: jesyrene
    Weren't you the one not long ago calling Madonna in every post the Queen of Flops? My bad…I really shouldn't be feeding the trolls around here.

    Gaga is right. he only sued because Lady Gaga got rich and famous and he wanted some money out of her. Team Gaga!

  20. 20

    Funny how for a page saturated with Gaga, you don't mention anything about the poor 19 year old friend she had that threw herself off a skyscraper…………. and then that Gaga stole her act.

    Seriously people, google Lina Morgana.

  21. 21

    Go Gaga!

    no one gets anywhere all ALONE!

    cred out to all the people she met along the way!

    He's legit. He went to William Paterson and graduated in 08 when I was a freshman there and heard a lot about him and her. They were dating, and he's even on William Patersons main website and she's cut out of his alumni picture.

    LEGIT! Cuz that twat steals from everyone! She is the most unoriginal thing on the planet. She Sucks!

    You haters never fail to put a smile on my face. Might as well get use to it, GaGa is here to stay. I love how she gets to you, I can almost taste the gurd rising up your throats. Does it taste good losers? Ha, Ha, 15 minutes of fame? The 3rd album will be the last big one? Glad you admit you’ve got another big one coming down the pike and I’m not referring to the next time you duck under a table.

    Some grieving mother, looking for someone to blame for her daughters suicide, lashes out at the MOST successful Pop Star in years and you jump right on her band wagon. The bigger your FAME the bigger the cockroaches crawl from the woodwork.

    What could GaGa have possibly stolen from Linda? A look? Ha Ha. There are countless steps from “a look” to millions of album sales, 175 Monster Balls, sellouts across the world, record-breaking achievements in nearly every category. POP culture is full of ideas and looks. Even if she did steal “a look”, lets see ANYONE of you losers take a look and turn it into MEGA STARDOM. You would need talent for that, something you haters know nothing about!

    Re: barconnection – so because he gave her a nickname he deservees 30 million? nope.

    Re: JerseyBoy – How touchingly naive. Firstly, critics of Gaga are not necessarily haters but often persons calling her out on her lack of originality and her preparedness to borrow, appropriate and steal other artist's musical (Ace of Spades) and fashion (Grace Jones, Madonna, David Bowie) ideas and pass them off as her own - see the article recently written by Camille Paglia for a more academic critique of Gaga's MO. I wonder if you can see the irony in an 'artist' who so self-conciously proclaims her individual/outsider/freak/misfit status actually copying other people to come up with a wholly synthetic, manufactured and derivative persona. Secondly, I don't think the mother of the girl who suicided was blaming Gaga for her suicide, but rather seeking recognition of the influence her daughter has had on Gaga's songwriting, stagecraft and musical persona. Why not? Are you familiar with the notion of giving credit where credit is due? Her former manager, Rob Fusari pretty much sought the same recognition and remuneration from the ungrateful Megastar (out of court settlement???). Lastly, your overconfidence in Gaga's ability to be around for a long time is a little hard to fathom - her recently released music - slow piano ballads - like You and I - are unlikely to replicate the commercial success of Just Dance and Poker Face if released on her new album. Where is the new electro dance pop?
    Paws Up…

    Re: danilovesgaga – It's more than a nickname - it's her intellectual property and now worth $$$$$$$.

    "Now as she sets her controls at the heart of the sun, she is as powerful as the young Annie Lennox, who ripped off her blonde wig in the *Love is a Stranger* video to show the cropped red hair beneath. The pop world is hers for the asking. To call her another singer is like calling the Beatles another rock band. True at face value, but dare to look deeper."

  34. 34

    It doesnt matter how much you people call her a "Dyke" or "Coke whore" She obviously couldnt give 2 shits about what any of you have to say. Shes the millionare and shes the award winner. Be angry about something else. Shes made it this far and has broken records for a reason. Everyone is inspired by something.

  35. 35

  36. 36

    Call her out all you want. Shes not listening.

    Lady Gaga is like the sun. Everyone else lives in her shadow. Fusari is a parasite who made a bad business decision. Fusari underestimated Gaga and she seriously overestimated him! Gaga was just a kid learning her way. What is Fusari's excuse? Why are you so speechless, Fusari? Lady Gaga taught me that beauty is in the heart of the beholdee. Fusari doesn't fare well under that law of beauty.
