Lady GaGa Sued for Not Paying 'Teeth' Writing Fee


Lady GaGa


Singer Teddy Riley wanted his 25 percent commission in producing and writing the 2009 song paid, but he never received a dime.

While a new album is on the roll, Lady GaGa forgot to close a chapter in her 2009 album, "The Fame Monster". The "Do What U Want" singer is being sued by R 'n' B singer Teddy Riley who helped her in producing her track "Teeth".

Riley, a Grammy Award winning American singer-songwriter and one-part of R 'n' B group Blackstreet, said GaGa has not given the paycheck for his contribution to the song. According to TMZ, GaGa promised him 25 percent commission on the writing fee but has so far given Riley nothing.

Riley has launched a lawsuit against GaGa, suing for half a million dollars plus punitives. GaGa has not given a response to the lawsuit.

Meanwhile, work on her third studio album, "ARTPOP", continues as it draws closer to the November 11 release date. The singer announced recently that "Dope" will serve as the third U.S. single as well as the last release from the album before the whole package hits the stores.

" 'Dope' will be available 12:01am local time Nov 4th," GaGa tweeted the announcement. "Final song available for purchase before ARTPOP release Nov 11." She had released "Applause" and "Do What U Want" as the official singles as well as "Venus" and "Aura" as promo singles.
