Lady GaGa Accused of Copying Former Collaborator

A mother of late singer named Lina Morgana who wrote songs with Lady GaGa before she shot to stardom claims the outlandish singer stole her daughter's eccentric style.

The mother of a promising young singer who committed suicide has accused of stealing her daughter's eccentric performing style after the pair collaborated in 2007. Lina Morgana co-wrote several songs with the "Poker Face" hitmaker before she became Lady GaGa and shot to fame in late 2008.

The pair was introduced by GaGa's former mentor and ex-boyfriend Rob Fusari, who wanted the star - real name Stefani Germanotta - to come up with tracks Morgana could use on her debut solo album. The youngster took her own life at the age of 19 in October 2008 by jumping from a 10-storey building, and now her mother Yana is calling on GaGa to recognize that Morgana helped create the image which has propelled her to superstardom.

Yana tells the New York Post, "I'm doing this because I want to keep her spirit alive. Lady GaGa is holding Lina's soul and I want her soul to be free. Every other word she says is from Lina. She talks about having a dark and tragic life, but she had everything she wanted in the world. She went to (the same) high school as , her parents were rich. But Lina did have a tough life, and she often talked about her tragic life."

To back up her claims, Yana Morgana has released snaps of her late daughter wearing a latex bikini while sat at a piano, in reference to Lady GaGa's outlandish stagewear. She adds, "Lina had that style, GaGa had a different style. She changed dramatically overnight."

The New York Post claims the mother is seeking permission to release around a dozen songs Morgana recorded with GaGa, including a track named "Wunderland", which is currently available online.
