Dueling lawsuits filed by Lady Gaga and ex-lover Rob Fusari have been dismissed

Producer and ex-boyfriend Rob Fusari had sued Lady Gaga for more than $30 million claiming he was dumped after helping craft the pop superstar’s image and unable to profit from it when their romance ended.

In his March lawsuit he stated that he was a key figure in transforming the ambitious young woman named Stefani Germanotta into the pop phenomenon she is today, even helping coin her moniker, Lady Gaga.

Gaga countersued days later alleging the early agreement she had with Fusari was illegal and that she did not owe him one cent.

Both suits were dismissed by the New York State Supreme Court in late August and the decision was made public this week.

A spokeswoman for Lady Gaga said in a statement on Friday the singer and Fusari “have agreed to end their dispute amicably and wish each other well.”

“Rob Fusari is a Grammy award winning producer and co-writer of ‘Paparazzi’ and a number of other songs on Lady Gaga’s debut album ‘The Fame’,” the statement said.

An attorney for Fusari did not immediately return calls for comment. It was not clear whether any money had exchanged hands.

“Fusari thought Germanotta’s songs were brilliant but lacked commercial appeal. He pushed her to explore different musical genres,” his lawsuit said.

The question on everyone’s minds is not if but how much the “wish each other well” cost?

Lady Gaga allegedly “ripped off” Lina Morgana’s image

The “Bad Romance” singer has been accused of stealing the “soul” of Lina Morgana, whom she collaborated with, back in 2007.

Even though Morgana killed herself in 2008, her mother claims that Gaga has simply “ripped off” her daughter’s image.

She told 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”.

Morgana’s mother is insistent that Gaga isn’t the original artist she would have her fans believe, she said: “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”.

Yana Morgana is seeking the rights to release the dozen or so songs her daughter, Lina, recorded with Gaga – then Stefani Germanotta – before Lina committed suicide at age 19.

And she wants the “Paparazzi” princess to acknowledge it was Lina Morgana’s dark, edgy style that helped create Lady Gaga.

“I’m not looking to file a lawsuit,” Yana said. “I just want them to acknowledge Lina as an artist and release her music.”
