Bosses at Lady GaGa's insurance company have filed court documents in New York distancing themselves from the singer's legal battle with a former producer to ensure they aren't liable for damages if she loses the case. Rob Fusari, GaGa's former mentor and ex-boyfriend, is suing the star for $35 million, claiming he helped his former lover come up with her stage name and played a key part in landing her a record deal with Interscope.
Fusari maintains he held a 20 per cent share in his company with GaGa, Team Love Child LLC, and argues she failed to adequately compensate him for his shares in the firm once she gained worldwide recognition. The "Poker Face" hitmaker has hit back with a counter suit, accusing Fusari of taking advantage of her naivety as a wannabe pop star.
Now executives at her insurers Navigators Speciality Insurance Company have waded into the lawsuit. Lawyers representing the firm filed a motion in court on Thursday, July 8 asking the presiding judge to issue a declaratory judgment because GaGa's policy does not cover breach of contract claims, reports TMZ.
The legal papers state GaGa's policy only pays for "an act or omission including personal injury in the performance of professional services". The case continues.
