Lady Gaga is reportedly being sued by R&B singer/producer Teddy Riley.

Riley co-produced 'Teeth', a track from Gaga's 2009 EP 'The Fame Monster', and is now claiming he was promised 25% of the songwriting royalties, TMZ reports.

Riley, a member of US R&B group Blackstreet ('No Diggity') as a well a songwriter-producer, is said to be seeking $500,000 in owed royalties plus punitive damages from Lady Gaga.

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has recently released a preview of 'Mary Jane Holland', a song from her forthcoming album 'ARTPOP' which appears to be a celebration of marijuana.
