Los Angeles - Lady Gaga is desperately trying
to block private information about her from being leaked to the public
via a lawsuit.
The 27-year-old singer filed legal documents this
week, asking a judge to seal certain information and records pertaining
to a lawsuit between two of the people who discovered her.
The Born This Way hitmaker's
former best friend and collaborator Wendy Starland sued Lady Gaga's
former producer Rob Fusari in 2010, claiming he screwed her out of money
she feels she is owed for helping to discover the outspoken blonde star
in New York.
Wendy claims she landed Lady Gaga a production deal
with Rob that resulted in her signing a deal with a major label record,
as well as publishing deals for her lyrics.
Lady Gaga claims that
the lawsuit contains information that is ''sensitive, private, and
personal'' and believes if it went public, it would ''inflict
significant personal and professional harm upon'' her, according to
gossip website TMZ.com.
The Judas singer also stated that
she and Rob are legally bound to keep the information private as part of
a previous non-disparagement agreement between them.
A judge has yet to rule on whether the information will be sealed.
