Lady Gaga Won a Major Court Victory in Her Dognapping Saga

A woman connected with the dognapping had sued the pop icon for $500,000 for returning the dogs.

One woman has found out that crime does not pay after a new court ruling in the case of Lady Gaga’s dognapping.

A Los Angeles judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by a woman who was arrested and charged in connection with the theft of her two French bulldogs which left her dog walker hospitalized with a gunshot wound.

In 2021, Gaga’s dog walker Ryan Fischer was walking her dogs Gustav and Koji in Los Angeles when he was robbed at gunpoint and shot. When the dognapping happened, Gaga offered a $500,000 reward, “no questions asked,” for the safe return of her dogs.

After a short time, her dogs were returned by a woman who claimed that she found them tied to a pole. Jennifer McBride was initially praised for returning the dogs, however, when arrests were made in the case, McBride was one of five arrested and charged with being an accessory to the crime.

Still, she wanted her reward.

In February of this year, McBride sued Gaga, claiming that her reward offer for “no questions asked” meant that even if the person who returned the dog was involved in the crime, they would get the reward.

Her lawsuit alleged that Gaga’s reward offer was made “with the intent to defraud and induce members of the public, such as Plaintiff, to rely upon it and act upon said promise by locating and delivering Lady Gaga’s bulldogs to Defendants.”

Now, a judge has dismissed that argument.

“You can’t benefit from your own criminal act,” the judge said, “I have a problem with your position.”

Hopefully, Gaga will now be able to move on with her life.
