Unless you live under a rock, a rainbow rock for those of you in gay Fort Lauderdale, than you’ve probably heard about Lady Gaga’s “We Pray For Japan” bracelets. Â The rubber bracelets which are sold on her website promise that 100% of the proceeds will go to earthquake relief.
Well, a Michigan-based law firm called 1-800-LAWFIRM alleged that Lady Gaga made some serious money on the sale of the bracelets.
The bracelets were selling for $5, but buyers had to pay $3.99 for shipping and handling and $.90 in tax. Â What the lawsuit is speculating is that Gaga exaggerated these costs and is pocketing the cash.
Alyson Oliver, an attorney for 1-800-LAW-FIRM, says that “while we commend Lady Gaga for her philanthropic efforts, we want to ensure that claims that ‘all proceeds will be donated to Japan’s earthquake’ are in fact true.”
First of all, am I the only one that doesn’t trust a law firm called 1-800-LAW-FIRM? This just sounds like another bobo company trying to get their 15 minutes of publicity from a well known celebrity who probably has more common sense than to falsely inflate the cost of shipping. Â Let’s be real, she doesn’t need the extra money from the charity bracelets. Â She probably generate more money while brushing her teeth.
This will get filed under really stupid lawsuits.
