Lady GaGa could be facing a $35 million lawsuit after a former music producer has accused her of ditching him as her career took off.
Rob Fursari claims to have co-written some of GaGa’s biggest hits, thought of her infamous stage name and helped Lady G to get a record deal.
As a result, Fursari has filed the big bucks lawsuit against the Brit Award winning artist stating that his protégé had denied him a 20% share of song royalties and merchandise revenue.
Fursari claims he realised the Telephone singer had real star potential back in 2006 and spent months ‘radically reshaping her approach to music’.
The lawsuit also claims that as GaGa and Fursari wrote hits such as Paparazzi, he transformed Germanotta into her alter-ego.
He also claims that he enjoyed a romance with the Bad Romance star but the relationship later soured after GaGa refused to pay him for his services.
Fursari has admitted to receiving cheques up to the value of $611,000 but claims he is still owed a huge outstanding amount.
