Jennifer McBride, the woman who returned Lady Gaga’s dogs Koji and Gustav, has sued the 13-time Grammy winner, for not paying the $500,000 reward she initially offered. The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
In a filing on Friday, McBride’s lawyer said that by saying “no questions asked” with the reward offer and then not paying, Gaga broke the contract, made a false promise, and lied about something.

According to the lawsuit, McBride thinks Gaga’s “no questions asked” offer was made “to defraud and induce public members, such as Plaintiff, to rely on it and act on a said promise by finding and delivering Lady Gaga’s bulldogs to Defendants.”
People asked Gaga’s lawyer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, for a comment, but she didn’t answer immediately. McBride was one of five people caught for the crime in April 2021. At the time, she was dating Harold White, the father of Jaylin White, who was also in on the offense. Jaylin was with James Jackson and Lafayette Whaley when they robbed and shot the man.
A previous news release from the LAPD said that the couple was “determined to be an accessory after the fact” and was being held on suspicion of being an accessory to attempted murder.
Jackson shot dog walker Ryan Fischer and then pleaded no contest to attempted murder with great bodily harm. In December, he was given a 21-year prison sentence. Because he claimed guilty, the prosecutors dropped some of the less serious charges against him. These included conspiracy to commit robbery, second-degree robbery, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and a convicted felon hiding a gun in a car.

Fischer’s lung collapsed after the shooting, and he stayed with Gaga while he healed. At Jackson’s sentencing, he said that since the shooting, he’s gotten into debt, lost his job and friends, and has been aimlessly traveling the country. “You shot me and left me to die, and that changed both of our lives forever,” Fischer said, adding,
“I do forgive you. With the attack, you completely altered my life. I know I can’t completely move on from the night you shot me until I said those words to you.”
McBride says that because she didn’t get the reward, she “has suffered compensatory damages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life.” In the lawsuit, McBride also says that Gaga “cheated” her by making a promise she didn’t plan to keep.
