There's some bad romance between Lady GaGa and MGA!
GaGaloo and the company agreed on a contract that would allow MGA the rights to produce and sell Bratz dolls in her likeness come the fall, but now GaGa's being accused of selfish foul play!
The entertainment company claims Mother Monster is withholding final approval to delay their release, thus allowing her to tie the dolls in with the release of her 2013 album.

What a huge win for Bratz!
Creator of the doll line, MGA Entertainment, Inc. was awarded $225 million in punitive damages, attorney fees, and costs.
In the lawsuit that we previously told you about, Mattel toy company was found guilty of stealing MGA's ideas through "corporate espionage." Mattel was accused of using trade secrets that didn't belong to them, which resulted in a $85 million win to MGA. The rest of the $137 million will cover fees and costs that MGA incurred while defending themselves against Mattel's original copyright infringement claims.
MGA's chief executive officer Isaac Larian said:
