Lady Gaga has reportedly threatened the makers of a royal baby-themed breast-milk ice cream that takes inspiration from her stage name with legal action.
British ice-cream company The Licktators launched their Baby Gaga brand of ice cream earlier this year to mark the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s second child.
Now, according to reports, representatives of the pop star have sent a cease-and-desist letter to the dairy manufacturers, alleging that the product’s name infringe on the singer’s trademark.
The company’s Nadine O’Connor told The Mirror that they had been warned to withdraw the item and all mentions of the product within 14 days.
O’Connor said: “We will not be bullied into removing content from social media relating to our product and subsequent media coverage.”
“However, we will send complimentary tubs of our ice cream to Lady Gaga for chilling out to, as a gesture of peace and goodwill.”

The Licktators recently launched a Blur-inspired ice cream in conjunction with the band’s new album ‘The Magic Whip’.
The product is described as “a dairy vanilla custard ice cream rippled with raspberry sauce”. It was recently sold at Co-Operative stores and at the group’s live shows.
