'It would inflict significant personal and professional harm': Lady Gaga demands 'sensitive' court documents sealed in ongoing legal battle over royalties
Lady Gaga has reportedly filed legal documents to ensure certain 'sensitive' information about her never sees the light of day.
The 27-year-old singer is said to have rushed to court following the development of a a legal feud between her rumoured ex-boyfriend and former producer, Rob Fusari, and her former collaborator, Wendy Starland, according to TMZ.
Starland sued Fusari in 2010 for breaching his promise to pay money she claimed she was owed for discovering Gaga.

As the case continues, it seems information being brought to light is concerning enough for Gaga to step in and attempt to prevent it from being publicised.
The Poker Face singer is allegedly asking the court to seal up certain information which is 'sensitive, private, and personal'.
Gaga, real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, is reportedly afraid that if the information went public, it would 'inflict significant personal and professional harm upon' her.
The Judas singer also allegedly stated that she and Fusari are legally bound to keep the information private as part of a previous non-disparagement agreement between them.

A judge has yet to rule on whether the information will be sealed.
Fusari and Starland have been thrashing it out in court since 2010 when Starland sued Fusari for breach of contract.
Starland claimed that Fusari asked her to go out and find him a 'unique female singer, under the age of 25, who could be the female equivalent of the lead singer of the band The Strokes.'
She said Fusari promised that 'if she could find and introduce him to such a singer, they would work together to develop the singer and share equally in any revenues earned as a result,' Forbes reported back in 2010.
The agreement was reportedly oral and never put in writing, but Starland claims she saw out her end of the deal when she introduced Gaga to Fusari after spotting her at The Cutting Room in NYC.
But Starland allegedly says she was later cut out of the deal when a major record label signed Gaga after she had made the introduction.
The singer was first signed by Island Def Jam, with her first solo release slated for May 2007, although she was dropped by the label 'inexplicable' three months later, according to MTV News.
Gaga signed with Interscope that same month after the deal fell through and Fasari was allegedly pushed out of the picture. The singer released her first album, The Fame, in 2008.
The case continues.
