Lady Gaga threatens to sue over 'Baby Gaga' human breast milk ice cream

Lady Gaga has threatened to sue the makers of an ice cream made from human breast milk if they don't stop selling the product under the name "Baby Gaga."

News of the flavor's sale in a London sweets shop by a waitress dressed like Lady Gaga raised eyebrows worldwide and led to its confiscation after the Westminister City Council deemed it unfit for human consumption.

That hasn't stopped the meat-wearing entertainer from accusing Covent Garden's Icecreamists of riding her "coattails" to promote a "deliberately provocative" product that many consider "nausea-inducing," according to legal documents filed on her behalf.

In using her name and her image, Gaga - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - accuses the shop of misleading the public into believing she endorses the concoction of breast milk, vanilla pods and lemon zest.

"The references you are making to Lady Gaga are thus clearly deliberate and intended to take advantage of her reputation and good will," the document states.

Furthermore, "associating the Lady Gaga mark with a food product which may be unsafe for human consumption (owing to the risk of it carrying such viruses as hepatitis) is also highly detrimental" to her brand, according to the document.

Gaga demands that Icecreamists change the name of the ice cream to something that is not "aurally, visually or conceptually similar" to Lady Gaga and to remove all references to Baby Gaga from their website and marketing materials or face an injunction and further legal proceedings.

The owner of Icecreamists, Matt O'Connor, said he intends to fight the allegations, which he calls "preposterous and outrageous."

He also said he plans to continue selling the breast milk ice cream under the name Baby Gaga if he gets the ice cream back from the council.

"We think this is very unnecessary, the whole thing will be over by next week, but we are prepared to fight this in court," he said.

    Lady Gaga is a barely talented unartistic media wh0re. She uses phony gimmicks to make a splash and rolls out some pre-fabricated studio song every once awhile to stay relevant. Selling records and being an artist are two completely different things. She's a grimey slimeball of an indivdual who will no doubt be rememebered more for her shallow and scripted "fashion" antics than the cheap dime store music her record label relases with her name slapped all over it. People might think I hold this opinion because of her affiliation with the LGBT community when in actuality, I couldn't care less. I have this opinion because she is nothing more than a marketing strategy to sell more records for a company. She is as fake as the day is long. AND yes, I'm being gentle with her.

      honestly, shes smart. it doesn't matter what anyone has against her (even me) the fact is she is amazing at marketing herself, her clothesline, and her music. and as far as the "she isn't talented blah blah her music is studio created", well I hate to break your bubble but ALL music is studio mastered or it would sound like crap. she's successful at her job, can you say that you could do the same thing that she does?!?!?! because it takes more work then most people on this idiot ridden forum could even imagine.

    Are people in the UK crazy??? You don't do stupid stuff like that, and use a person's image and characterization to pull off an insane marketing campaign. Whoever this director or owner is of ICECREAMISTS, he's insane!!! Kick him out of your company before you lose everything!

    This is ridiculous. The next time I play that connectix game with her song on it I'm going to moon the camera! Maybe she should sell her own breast milk for 1 million bucks. I bet someone would buy it. 😉

    Lady Gaga does her own thing and I dont blame her for one minute. The maker of this product used her picture and name with out her permission. Dont take her lightly she is a very intelligent woman and not afraid to say what's on her mind.
