Keeping It In The Family: Lady Gaga Gives Half Of Earnings To Her Dad

By  | 

Lady Gaga London, EnglandLady Gaga always makes a point to stress what a good Catholic Italian girl she is at heart and, despite her enormous fortune and career, a peek into her finances reveals that her claims may be true. Mother Monster apparently has a 50/50 arrangement with her father Joe Germanotta when it comes to her earnings.

According to the New York Post, 25-year-old Stefani Germanotta gives her papa half of everything under their LLCs, Team Love Child and Mermaid Music. Gaga has always cited her father has her number one supporter when it came to achieving stardom, and now he is using his daughter’s profits to manage other performers. After the money started coming in, the pop singer also wrote a check to purchase her father’s favorite restaurant on the Upper West Side, which he promptly renamed Joanne’s in honor of his late sister.

And the performer won’t be carving her turkey this week with the Haus Of Gaga either as Gaga doesn’t even have her own place in her hometown of NYC. The former NYU student is heading back to her childhood home come Thursday to celebrate the holidays with her father, mother Cynthia, and her little sister Natali.

Gaga may be philanthropic and a savvy business women, but remembering one’s roots and family seem also to be a priority for this driven young woman.
