Lady Gaga sued for $500K reward money by the woman who helped steal her dogs

The woman involved in the dog napping of Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs is now suing the singer.

In an odd turn of events, Jennifer McBride, the woman charged with the theft, is now suing Lady Gaga for not living up to her promise of rewarding whoever found her dogs $500,000, which was posted on her Instagram account back in 2021.

Police arrested five people in April 2021 — including McBride, who “found” the dogs and turned them over to police two days after the robbery.

Though police initially believed McBride was not involved in the crime, it was later revealed she had a relationship with the father of one of the suspects involved.

According to the Los Angeles Times, McBride was sentenced to two years probation in December 2022 after pleading no contest to one count of receiving stolen property.

That same month, James Howard Johnson, the man who shot Fischer, was sentenced to 21 years in prison, per the Los Angeles Times.

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.

According to the lawsuit, McBride claims she “has suffered compensatory damages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life” because she didn’t receive the reward.

The lawsuit also claims that Gaga “defrauded” McBride “by making a promise without intent to perform.”
