Lady Gaga has settled a lawsuit that could have cost her millions in payout by offering to make a sizable donation to the natural calamities that hit the shores of Japan last year.
Here’s the back story. After the tsunami/earthquake occurred in Japan in 2011, Gaga started to sell ‘We Pray for Japan’ wristbands to show solidarity, the proceeds of which were meant to go to charity. However, the prosecutors insist that she made and kept profits.
A law firm in Michigan hit the pop star with a suit accusing her of over-pricing the bracelet at $5 in addition to profiting from shipping costs.
Back to the present – court documents filed on Monday revealed that both parties have arrived at a mutually beneficial settlement – Gaga has agreed to donate over $100,000 of the $1.5 million that she raked in to aid victims of the tragedy in return for the suit being dropped on the grounds of having no credibility.
