Lady Gaga's first producer and former boyfriend owes the Hollywood songwriter who discovered her $7.3 million
Lady Gaga's first producer and former boyfriend owes the Hollywood songwriter who discovered her $7.3 million after he promised to split profits with her, a federal judge has ruled, upholding a jury's verdict.
U.S. District court Judge Jose Linares ruled Wednesday against producer Rob Fusari's argument to reduce the amount the jury awarded last year to Wendy Starland.
"My understanding was that Wendy and him had initially agreed upon 50/50 perhaps before Wendy ever found me, and after I was signed to Rob and made music, Rob began to change his mind," said Lady Gaga, whose hits have included "Poker Face" and "Bad Romance."
Fusari, a Grammy Award-winning producer whose credits include work forBeyonce, Whitney Houston and Will Smith, previously sued Lady Gaga for $35 million in court in New York, but that lawsuit was dropped.
