Lady Gaga and Universal Music are being sued by Bratz Doll maker MGA Entertainment. MGA is seeking more than $10 million in damages because they claim Gaga is in breach of contract for delaying on approving her Lady Gaga doll line. MGA Entertainment’s suit states they were planning on distributing the dolls this summer but Gaga wanted to delay production for her new album release in 2013.

Lady Gaga’s spokeswoman said, “This is a dispute between Universal Music Group’s merchandising company and MGA. There was no legitimate reason for dragging Lady Gaga into that dispute. Lady Gaga will vigorously defend MGA’s ill-conceived lawsuit and is confident that she will prevail.” My money’s on Gaga.
