A lawsuit alleges that the music star kept some of the proceeds from her "We Pray For Japan" bracelets.

NEW YORK - A law firm in Michigan has sued Lady Gaga, alleging the music star kept some of the proceeds from the "We Pray For Japan" bracelets that she has been selling to her fans to raise money for the earthquake recovery effort in Japan, according to Business Insider.

Lady Gaga's Web site says that all of the proceeds from the bracelets go to charity. But the lawsuit charges that she inflated shipping charges for the bracelets and also kept some of the $5 dollars that she charged for them.
How the law firm plans to prove its claims wasn't immediately clear.

Lady Gaga, who  headlined a disaster relief benefit concert in Tokyo this weekend, has donated $3 million to help the victims of the March 11 earthquake in Japan.
