A songwriter and music producer who claims he helped launch pop star Lady Gaga has been raking in the cash following a $30.5 million lawsuit he filed against the Grammy Award-winning pop star, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
Gaga’s ex-boyfriend and producer, Rob Fusari, claimed Gaga cut him out after her career soared, and new court documents show the Grammy Award-winning singer has been paying Fusari an unspecified amount for years, as recently as June 15, 2013. According to the docs, Fusari has been collecting payments from Gaga’s artist and merchandise royalties, as well as the “Poker Face” singer’s label Interscope and Sony, who paid him as recently as June 2013.
The judge noted that Fusari was ordered to hand over the documents pertaining to all money he has earned from Gaga, but he had not as of Tuesday.
“Although the Court ordered Defendants to produce documents sufficient to determine these amounts, and to produce a witness prepared to testify as to these amounts, Defendants have failed do so,” the court docs state.
The court noted that he will continue to be paid as long as her songs are generating revenue. The precise amount of money the defendant will receive depends “on many unknowable future events,” the legal docs noted.
