Ex-BF Sues Lady Gaga

What will Lady Gaga wear to court? An ex-boyfriend of the pop star, songwriter Rob Fusari, is suing her for $30 million, saying that he came up with her stage name and that they made a business deal giving him 20 percent ownership of her companies. The lawsuit is awfully personal: It calls Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, a “scorned woman.” Fusari says that over a seven day period in 2006, he remade Gaga from a piano-playing “guidette” into her present-day image, and he went on to cowrite “Beautiful, Dirty, Rich” and “Paparazzi.” The couple broke up in January 2007.
