Lady Gaga isn’t going to be intimidated by the threat of legal action.
Songwriter Steve Ronsen has threatened to file a lawsuit against the singer, who wrote the Academy Award-winning A Star Is Born track with Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson.
Ronsen has alleged that a chord progression from his 2012 song “Almost” was stolen for the melody of “Shallow.”
Gaga’s lawyer, Orin Snyder, slammed the allegation and released a statement, obtained by Entertainment Tonight and Page Six, on behalf of the 33-year-old singer. “Mr. Ronsen and his lawyer are trying to make easy money off the back of a successful artist,” Synder said.
“It is shameful and wrong,” he added. “I applaud Lady Gaga for having the courage and integrity to stand up on behalf of successful artists who find themselves on the receiving end of such [claims]. Should Mr. Shirian proceed with this case, Lady Gaga will fight it vigorously and will prevail.”
