Lady Gaga and former producer withdraw competing lawsuits

lady-gaga-3Image Credit: Barry Brecheisen/WireImageThe Bad Romance played out between Lady Gaga and her former producer/alleged paramour Rob Fusari in the New York state court system for the past several months is, at last, rah-rah-ah-ah-ah resolved.

Yahoo reports that both sides have withdrawn their claims: Fusari’s, demanding $30.5 million for transforming a then-unknown Stefani Germanotti into the superstar she became by co-writing her songs (including “Paparazzi”), helping her get a record deal, and giving her her famous moniker, and Gaga’s alleging that Fusari violated employment statutes in New York and New Jersey by entrapping an inexperienced young woman with shady contract clauses and deliberately exploitative addendums.

It’s unclear whether the pair made some kind of monetary agreement outside of the courts; calls for comment have not yet been returned.

    I was just wondering about this lawsuit. Well, I’m glad it’s over and I hope Rob got what he wanted/deserved.

  • RayT

    It looks like someone found a sequined, bedazzled, severed horse head in his bed and decided to withdraw the lawsuit.
