Lady Gaga facing lawsuit over 'Teeth' song

Los Angeles, Nov 2 : Music producer Teddy Riley is planning to sue pop star Lady Gaga over her 2009 song "Teeth", claiming he hasn't received any payment for his involvement in creating the song.


Riley, who was a member of 1990s hip-hop group Blackstreet, has filed a lawsuit against the 27-year-old pop star, claiming he hasn't received any of the payments he is owed after the song was included in her smash hit "The Fame Monster" EP (extended play)

The 46-year-old says he was promised 25 per cent of the writing fees for the song but hasn't been paid at all, and he is now seeking USD 500,000 as well as punitive damages, reports tmz.com.

Gaga's "Fame Monster" EP, which was released after her debut album "The Fame" , is credited with establishing her as one of the most popular music artists today. It also features hit songs such as "Telephone", "Bad romance" and "Alejandro".
