Lady Gaga sued by woman charged in dog theft
Jennifer McBride, who was arrested in connection with the theft of Lady Gaga’s dogs, filed a lawsuit against the “Applause” singer over the $500,000 that was promised to anyone who returned the dogs.
Jennifer McBride, one of five people arrested in connection with the 2021 armed dognapping of French bulldogs Koji and Gustav, filed a lawsuit against the "Bad Romance" singer Feb. 24, demanding $500,000, the sum of the reward money that the star had promised anyone who safely returned her dogs, per court documents obtained by publications.
According to the documents, McBride contacted Gaga after the incident and delivered the dogs to the Los Angeles Police Department Olympic Community Police Station. McBride alleges the singer breached the contract by "refusing" to pay her, the lawsuit states.
Per the documents, McBride believes that Gaga's promise to pay the reward money of $500,000.00 "no questions asked" was made "with the intent to defraud and induce members of the public," including herself, "to rely upon it and to act upon said promise by locating and delivering" the bulldogs.
