As you've probably heard, 1-800-LAW-FIRM
is looking for an easy and quick payout filed a lawsuit against Lady GaGa, claiming she made a profit off her $5 We Pray For Japan bracelet by charging sales tax and $3.99 shipping.
Never one to take anything lying down, Mother Monster is fighting back!
GaGa's publicist Holly Shakoor released a statement this week to set the record straight:
"This misguided lawsuit is without merit and unfortunately takes attention away from the kind deeds of the fans around the world who are supporting the people of Japan. The entire $5 donation made with the purchase of each bracelet is going to support the disaster relief. No profit is being made on shipping costs. Sales tax charges were made in accordance with local legal requirements. Lady Gaga has personally pledged her own funds to this cause and continues to support the victims of the disaster."
And there you have it.
The very official sounding legal company asked for refunds as well as punitive damages.
