A songwriter and music producer has filed a more than $30 million lawsuit against Lady Gaga.Rob Fusari claims he helped launch her super-successful career, co-writing some of her songs, helping her get a record deal and even coming up with her famous stage name.

Lady Gaga won two Grammys in January: best dance recording, for "Poker Face," and best electronic/dance album, for "The Fame."

Her real name is Stefani Germanotta. Her spokesman, Dave Tomberlin, declined to comment Friday on the suit.
