When it comes to legal news for Lady Gaga, she is usually on the offense. These days, let’s just say she is now on the defense. Read up on the latest lawsuit against her:

“Lady Gaga is learning the meaning of the saying, “A good deed never goes unpunished.” The singer has been sued by legal network 1-800-LAW-FIRM for allegedly profiting from her “We Pray for Japan” charity wristbands.

Shortly after a deadly earthquake and tsunami struck Japan in March, Gaga began selling a $5 wristband on her Web site, saying that “all proceeds go directly to Japan relief efforts.”

The $5 million class action suit alleges that Gaga and her co-defendants, including Universal Music Group and its merchandising company, Bravado, retained a portion of the wristband proceeds and inflated shipping charges. The Michigan-based law firm claims to have uncovered evidence of racketeering through sources including “a review of publicly available documents and interviews with confidential witnesses,” according to the complaint. . .”

Washington Post has the full story.

Lady Gaga vehemently denies wrong doing here.
