Washington: Lady Gaga and her management team are being sued for 10 million dollars by a toy manufacturer, which claims that she deliberately delayed the release of a doll of herself.
MGA Entertainment has alleged that the singer requested that a voice chip be removed from a doll made in her likeness.
It claims that the doll was due for release on Christmas this year, but now they will not be able to meet the deadline.
The company says that the singer wants to put the release of the doll on hold until her new album and perfume come out in 2013.
According to the New York Daily News newspaper, MGA said that those around her had ``engaged in intentional and deliberate delays`` to the doll - which Gaga reportedly wanted to have a removable head which revealed a bloody stump and a ``supermodel`` like face with a ``sharp jaw-line`` and ``cat-eyes``. Contactmusic reported.
However, the ‘Poker face’ hitmaker’s spokesperson Amanda Silverman has claimed that she will ``prevail`` over the court case.
“Lady Gaga will vigorously defend MGA`s ill-conceived lawsuit and is confident that she will prevail,’’ she said.
