    Legal reps for Lady Gaga have filed a pre-emptive lawsuit to prevent fake merch from being sold outside of her show at the World's Most Famous Arena – Madison Square Garden in her NYC hometown.

    Gaga plays the venue tonight, May 13, and her team is aiming to stop fakers from profiting from her image and likeness and duping her fans with unofficial memorabilia and merch sold on the cheap.

    The court order, which was filed in Manhattan Federal Court late last week, will allow U.S. Marshals to seize and destroy any bootleg merch.

    Wow! Gaga is NOT messing around. This shit is serious. Only officially licensed merch can be sold.

    Do you own any Lady Gaga memorabilia? If so, what do you have in your stash? We own a Christmas stocking from her Barney's workshop a few years back.
