Lady Gaga will not be required to pay the $500,000 prize to the lady who aided in the theft of her beloved French bulldogs in 2021.

The “Rain On Me” singer announced the large prize in February of that year, when her purebred puppies, Koji and Gustav, were kidnapped at gunpoint from her dog walker.

The case was dismissed before it even went to trial.

Allowing McBride to pursue the allegations “would allow her to benefit from her admitted wrongdoing,” the court ruled.

McBride was charged with receiving stolen property and being an accessory to the crime after bringing the dogs to the LAPD Olympic Community Station on February 26, 2021.

McBride eventually pled no contest to receiving stolen items and was sentenced to two years probation.

She has been given 20 days to resubmit the case.

Fischer was walking three of Gaga’s dogs in Los Angeles on Feb. 24, 2021, when he was approached by multiple individuals who stole two of the Grammy winner’s canines, as previously reported.

That day, Jackson and others drove around many areas looking for French bulldogs.

Ryan Fischer was shot in the chest during the incident and was taken to the hospital. Fortunately, he survived his injuries.

He lost part of a lung in what he called a “very close call with death.”

Cops identified the main suspect as James Howard Jackson, who pled no contest to a count of attempted murder. In the end, he was sentenced to 21 years in prison.

Jackson was one of five people involved in the violent theft and its aftermath – three males and two accomplices.

Authorities claim the criminals did not specifically target Lady Gaga since they were unaware the canines belonged to the singer.
