LONDON, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- Recording artist Lady Gaga is threatening to sue a London-based ice cream company for naming a new product "Royal Baby Gaga" in honor of the British royal family's newest addition.

Reports say the "Born This Way" singer is claiming trademark infringement against The Licktators for naming their latest vanilla-flavored breast milk ice cream after her. The ice cream is fashioned from donated human breast milk reportedly screened along hospital standards.

A spokesperson from The Licktators says the company will oppose the claims Gaga -- real name Stefani Germanotta -- placed against them.

In a statement, the artisan ice cream makers say that they will not deter from marketing their product, which hit shelves in May. According to Licktators, the Royal Baby Gaga product "neither names nor features Lady Gaga, or infringes the mark 'Lady Gaga.'"

"We are sending complimentary tubs of our ice cream to Lady Gaga for chilling out to as a gesture of peace and goodwill," the company said.

Gaga sued The Licktators once before, in 2011 for another breast milk snack then called "Baby Gaga."
