Russian TV Company Sues Over Ill-Fated Lady Gaga Concert

Lady Gaga
The Russkies are pissed … claiming a doomed Lady Gaga concert screwed them out of $1.5 million — and now, they”re taking it to court.

TV Service ZAO — a media company that owns the Russian music network MUZ-TV — filed the legal docs in Miami, claiming it paid the $1.5 mil to book Gaga for the upcoming MUZ-TV awards in June … but the deal fell through … and they still haven”t gotten their money back.

According to the lawsuit, ZAO attempted to book Gaga through a Miami-based management firm called NWE — which claimed it had the necessary Gaga connections to lock down the pop star for the summer appearance.

But ZAO claims NWE was just blowing smoke — and ultimately failed to secure the singer.

ZAO claims it has repeatedly asked for its money back, but NWE has refused — and worse … siphoned off $300,000 from the 7-figure sum as a broker fee.

ZAO is suing for ALL its money back, plus damages. Calls to NWE have not been returned.
