Lady Gaga Settles Japan Lawsuit With Donation
The Poker Face hitmaker was hit with a $5 million (£3.1 million) lawsuit last year (Jun11) over allegations she profited from the sale of charity wristbands she designed to raise money after the 2011 tragedy.
The class action suit, filed by a Michigan law firm, accused the singer of overcharging fans and making money through shipping costs for the $5 (£3) 'We Pray For Japan' bracelets.
However, documents filed at a U.S. District Court on Monday (25Jun12) show both sides have reached a mutual conclusion, with Gaga agreeing to give $107,500 (£67,000) to a charity benefiting those affected by the tragedy.
Under terms of the settlement, Gaga and her co-defendants also deny the suit has any merit, reports The Detroit News.
Court records show Gaga raised at least $1.5 million (£938,000) with her wristband fundraiser.
