Rob Fusari, the record producer that discovered Lady GaGa, withdrew $2.3 million and entered rehab during the time he was meant to pay Wendy Starland $7.3 million for co-discovering the pop star.

As we previously reported, the songwriter sued her former peer after she claimed that she had been cheated out of money she was owed for assisting in the discovery of the Just Dance singer.
Back in November, a judge sided with the Los Angeles native and ordered the controversial producer to pay the funds owed.
However, on Tuesday, Wendy's lawyers claimed that a bankruptcy review showed that the Grammy winner had been making cash withdrawals since February when the $7.3 million judgement was officially entered.
Apparently, between October and March, the former star-maker went from $4.3 million to less than $436,000 in his bank account.
Starland discovered the Bad Romance performer back in 2006 when she was simply, Stefani Germanotta, performing at The Cutting Room in New York City. She then brought the megastar-in-the-making to Fusari.
The talent scout's lawyers stated:
"I do not know what Fusari has done with the millions of dollars in U.S. currency, or whether any court in the United States will have the ability to recover this currency from Fusari."
Fusari's representatives have yet to comment on these claims. We wonder if Wendy will ever get her money?!
We guess we'll just have to wait and see!
