Lady Gaga is going to have to exhibit her “poker face” as she just had a class action lawsuit filed against her in US District Court in Michigan. Gaga is being accused of scamming victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. Apparently, she created Lady Gaga Earthquake Relief Wristbands from which “all proceeds” were to go to charity. “I designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet. Buy it/Donate here and ALL proceeds will go to Tsunami Relief Efforts. Go Monsters. Little Monsters, show your support for Japan with this We Pray for Japan wristband!” wrote Gaga.
However, there were excessive shipping charges and a majority of the charitable donations went towards shipping. The lawsuit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
We all know that Gaga always has the best of intentions and a huge heart, so this comes as quite a shock.
