Lady GaGa

bites back at her former music manager Robert Fusari who filed a lawsuit on Thursday, March 18 claiming he is entitled to 20 percent of her income. The controversial singer counter-sued Fusari a day later, stating that the 2006 contract they signed was "void and unenforceable".

Fusari said in his lawsuit against GaGa's production company Mermaid Music LLC that he discovered a "young Italian girl" and mentored her before she got famous. He even claimed to have dated her and helped her in shaping her sound and style. Furthermore Fusari admitted to have co-written "Boys Boys Boys" and "Paparazzi". He is now seeking $30 million compensation.

GaGa, under her real name Stefani Joanne Germanotta filed a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court deeming the contract by Fusari was structured in such a way to hide its true purpose which is "to provide the defendants unlawful compensation for their services as unlicensed employment agents." Her legal team noted that the New York and New Jersey state laws were created "to protect employees from predatory and financially abusive practices."
