It turns out Lady Gaga’s love life is just as controversial as her outrageous stage costumes.
The blockbuster biography Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga – set to release next week – details a romantic relationship Gaga had with her former producer Rob Fusari and RadarOnline.com has all the exclusive details.
According to the book authored by Maureen Callahan, Fusari pressured Gaga into having a relationship with him even though he was living with his fiancé at the time.
Friends of Gaga are quoted in the book saying Fusari took advantage of her and she eventually fell in love with him.
The couple has since broken up and Fusari has slapped Gaga with a $30.5 million lawsuit, claiming he gave her the name Lady Gaga and owns a 20 percent share of her career.
Fusari was the co-executive producer on Gaga’s debut album The Fame and co-wrote four songs including the smash hit Paparazzi.
Also exposed in the book is the revelation that Gaga’s father Joe Germanotta is half-owner in her business.
Industry executives and lawyers interviewed in the biography say it is almost unheard of for an artist to share half their business with anyone and that Gaga often gets into arguments with her father over her frivolous spending.
When contacted by RadarOnline.com, Gaga’s rep and father were unavailable for comment.
