ZAO, the parent company of Russian network MUZ-TV, has been asking their money back when the deal fell through but the management company refused to do so.
An ill-fated Lady GaGa performance has pissed the Russians. In a performance deal gone wrong, a management firm is sued by TV service ZAO for screwing them out of $1.5 million.
ZAO, which filed the legal documents in Miami, claimed they paid the "Born This Way" singer to perform at their network MUZ-TV awards in June. The deal fell through but the money is not yet returned and $300,000 was siphoned as a broker fee.
Miami-based management firm is involved in the lawsuit because ZAO booked GaGa through it after the company claimed they had the "necessary GaGa connections to lock down the pop star". ZAO now thought that NWE was just talking promise and failed to fulfill the order.
ZAO demands its money back in its full sum plus damages.
