The contract Lady Gaga is being sued over is invalid. That’s the word from Gaga’s camp, according to the “New York Daily News.” The star’s former producer and boyfriend, Rob Fusari, has filed a lawsuit against the singer claiming he’s owed 30-million-dollars for coming up with her moniker and some of her hit songs. But now Gaga is counter suing, saying that he broke the law by tricking her into signing an invalid and illegal contract. The paperwork is allegedly invalid because Fusari was not a licensed talent agent at the time it was created. Lawyers for Gaga want the suit against their client thrown out. But they’re also seeking damages because they say Fusari was trying to take advantage of the singer who was an “inexperienced performing artist” at the time. The supposedly unlawful recording contract he had Gaga sign before she was famous gave him rights to her future earnings.
Fusari’s lawyer says this new claim against his client is “ludicrous.” Attorney Robert Meloni says, quote, “Rob [Fusari] was no more of an ‘agent’ for her than she is a Roman Catholic nun.”
