Lady Gaga’s Lawsuit Over “We Pray for Japan” Bracelets

Lady Gaga is facing accusations of being a greedy little monster, supposedly for keeping a portion of the proceeds from her “We Pray for Japan” charity bracelets, all of which were promised to survivors.

The “Born This Way” singer is being sued for inflating shipping charges, overtaxing a charity item, and including the money her team received from the bracelet sales as part of their donation fee to artificially inflate the figures.

The lawsuit comes from the Michigan-based law firm 1-800-LAW-FIRM, who even posted a video explaining the lawsuit on their website. “Our intention via this lawsuit is to uncover any improprieties committed by Lady Gaga and appropriate the full donations assumed to the victims in Japan,” the company said. Gaga reportedly donated around $3 million to Japan through the sale of the bracelets and other projects.

This news comes a surprise for many, since shortly after the destruction of Japan Gaga was extremely vocal about helping the country. And just a week ago she was urging fans to visit Japan in order to promote tourism. “I can’t say enough to people all over the world that the majority of Japan right now, Japan in general, is very safe,” Gaga told the Associated Press.
