Lady Gaga’s secret lawsuit
Lady Gaga is trying to keep some things a secret — particularly a settlement with a former producer, which she’s vying to have sealed, according to Radar Online.
Producer and ex-boyfriend Rob Fusari filed a $30.5 million lawsuit against Gaga in 2010, claiming he helped transform Stefani Germanotta into the pop star she is today. The suit was settled out of court, with the details of the settlement sealed at the time, but now Fusari is being sued by another producer, Wendy Starland, who claims she also helped discover Gaga, and the discovery phase of that suit could unseal the documents from the first suit.
“In 2010, Germanotta entered into a confidential settlement agreement with Rob Fusari and Rob Fusari Productions, resolving certain disputes, unrelated to the instant action, that had arisen between them,” Gaga’s lawyer writes in the filing. “These documents include highly sensitive financial information that could inflict significant professional and competitive harm upon Germanotta if disclosed.”
