Lady gaga has been sued over sales of her charity wristbands for Japan's earthquake relief efforts in a class action that claims that not all the proceeds went to victims as she had promised earlier. It seems that she hasn’t helped victims what she had promised. ‘Born this way’ singer was in Japan performing concert while the calls were done for her.

Lady gaga has been sued for $5million for the sued on white and red "We Pray for Japan" wristbands.

"While we commend Lady gaga for her philanthropic efforts, we want to ensure that claims that 'all proceeds will be donated to Japan's earthquake' are in fact true," said Alyson Oliver, an attorney for 1800LAWFIRM.

"Our intention via this lawsuit is to uncover any improprieties committed by Lady gaga and appropriate the full donations assumed to the victims in Japan."

Lady gaga is reported to have donated $3million for the victims from the sales of the wristband and other sources.The lawsuit claims that consumer protection laws were broken by what it calls as done by  Lady gaga deceptive advertising and profits from the sale of the bracelets.
