Hold the “Telephone.” Lady Gaga has been slapped with a lawsuit.
Rob Fusari, her alleged former lover and producer, is suing Lady Gaga’s company, Team Love Child and Mermaid Music, for more than $30 million, reports the New York Daily News.
Fusari claims he discovered Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta and even gave her the name Lady Gaga.
The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan, states that in 2006:
“When Fusari addressed a cell phone text to Germanotta under the moniker ‘Radio Gaga’ (a song he used to play for her) his cell phone’s spell check converted ‘Radio’ to ‘Lady’. Germanotta loved it and ‘Lady Gaga’ was born.”
