Lady Gaga Sued for $10 Million Over Toy Company Doll Deal
Lady Gaga has been slapped with a $10 million suit by toy manufacturer MGA Entertainment that claims the pop star sabotaged a deal to make a doll in her image.
In a lawsuit filed in New York City, MGA claims Gaga's camp requested the removal of a voice chip from their Mother Monster doll, which then stalled the release of the doll. The toy company — creator of the popular Bratz doll line — alleges the singer "engaged in intentional and deliberate delays" in attempt to push back the launch to 2013, to coincide with Gaga's new album and perfume, according to the Huffington Post.
What does the singer's camp have to say about the suit?
A representative for superstar labeled the lawsuit "ill-conceived" and said there was "no legitimate reason" to drag Gaga into a dispute primarily between MGA and Bravado International, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, according to the Wall Street Journal.
MGA alleges that Bravado tried to back out of the part of the doll deal that allowed the product to contain samples of Gaga's chart-topping songs. Bravado spoke out on the suit, stating its "meritless."
