Representatives of Lady Gaga on Tuesday denied claims of a scam over sales of the singer’s wristbands for Japan’s earthquake relief efforts.
They described a lawsuit targeting the pop star and other companies involved in the sale and marketing of the $5 white and red "We Pray for Japan" rubber bracelets as misguided and without merit.
"This misguided lawsuit is without merit and unfortunately takes attention away from the kind deeds of the fans around the world who are supporting the people of Japan," Gaga’s representatives said in a statement.
