Lady Gaga and Ex Drop Lawsuits

Lady Gaga and her ex-boyfriend and producer Rob Fusari have dropped their lawsuits against each other. Fusari wanted $30.5 million, saying the singer hadn’t honored a contract entitling him to 20 percent of her song royalties and had gotten just $611,000 so far. He also said he scored her a record contract and co-wrote hit songs “Paparazzi” and “Beautiful, Dirty, Rich.” Gaga’s lawyers said Fusari, who has a producer credit on her debut album The Fame, was merely an agent and asked the court to void a 2006 agreement, calling it unfair. It’s unclear whether Fusari got a monetary settlement from Gaga, who issued a statement saying the dispute was ended amicably and the pair will not comment further on the matter.
