Come Monday, Sept. 19, we will know the fate of Charlie Harper.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has been hit with a class-action lawsuit over wristbands sold via her website that are supposed to raise funds for Japanese earthquake relief, according to E! Online.

Ari Kresch, a lawyer for 1-800-LAW-FIRM, which filed the lawsuit, says Gaga deceived people when she claimed "all proceeds" from the $5 bracelets that read "WE PRAY FOR JAPAN" would go directly to Japan relief efforts. "There's a $3.99 shipping charge including packaging that weighed less than an ounce, so paying a $3.99 service charge for making a $5 donation is excessive since most of that costs about 50 cents," Kresch said.
