Celeb GOSSIP » Lady Gaga Responds to Bracelet Lawsuit

In hopes of doing a good deed, Lady Gaga began selling $5.00 wristbands for Japan relief on her website, but a lawyer located in the mid-west recently filed a lawsuit against the singer's efforts.

Alyson Oliver, an attorney based in Michigan, reportedly believes that not all the money for the wristbands is going to a relief fund for the devastated country after looking into the costs as well as the shipping charges.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Friday in federal court in Detroit, seeks class-action status and possible refunds for people who bought wristbands.

A spokesman for Lady Gaga said, "This misguided lawsuit is without merit and unfortunately takes attention away from the kind deeds of the fans around the world who are supporting the people of Japan.

"The entire $5 donation made with the purchase of each bracelet is going to support the disaster relief. No profit is being made on shipping costs. Sales tax charges were made in accordance with local legal requirements.”

"Lady Gaga has personally pledged her own funds to this cause and continues to support the victims of the disaster.
