'Bad Romance' singer reportedly 'on her own' in wrangle with former producer and boyfriend Rob Fusari
Lady Gaga‘s insurers have reportedly refused to pay out over a breach of contract lawsuit between the singer and her ex-boyfriend and producer Rob Fusari.
The singer – real name Stefani Germanotta – is being sued for $30 million (£19.9 million) by Fusari, but Navigators Speciality Insurance Company is thought to be going to the courts to avoid having to pay out on her $3 million policy.
According to court documents apparently seen by TMZ, the insurance firm claims that Germanotta‘s policy only covers “an act or omission including personal injury in the performance of professional services”.
Breach of contract is not thought to be covered by the policy, meaning Navigators Speciality Insurance Company apparently wants a New York judge to issue a declaratory judgement, which would leave Germanotta to fight the case without the firm’s assistance.
Earlier this year, Lady GaGa said she was planning to launch a countersuit against Fusari.
She claimed she was taken advantage of by the producer and signed a deal with him that was “predatory and financially abusive”.
Fusari believes he is entitled to a large share of Germanotta‘s earnings after “radically reshaping” her approach to music before she scored hits with ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Poker Face’.
