Besties No More: Lady Gaga Accuses Perez Hilton of Stalking Her
Cue the piano music: Perez Hilton has lost another high-profile pal.
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
Lady Gaga launching a scathing Twitter tirade against Gossip Guy Perez Hilton, a former friend the superstar singer now accuses of sending her menacing text messages and even trying to purchase an apartment in the New York City building where she lives.
After catching Perez allegedly scoping out pads in Gaga’s hood, a fan tweeted: “PEREZ HILTON IS AT GAGA’S APARTMENT OH MY GOD.” All those capital letters must’ve grabbed the diva’s attention, prompting her to ask the Twitter user for photographic evidence before sending security to the scene.
Once confirmed, Mother Monster lit into Perez, 35 (with caps lock in full effect, of course).
“STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!! DO I NEED TO BE SHOT IT IN THE HEAD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT HIM AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT HARASS ME HAS GONE TOO FAR? I’M A HUMAN BEING. I just want to make music + make people smile. I’m sorry to all the fans who are trying to enjoy what’s supposed to be a happy time. Gone too far.”
Gaga also accuses Hilton of taunting her a wheelchair-bound picture of herself following a sidelining hip surgery earlier in the year.
“Still have the text Perez sent me of me in a wheelchair w the words KARMA written across + Madonna pointing a gun at me. Day of my accident”
Perez — real name Mario Armando Lavandeira — hit back at the “Telephone” hitmaker with a 352-word blog post entitled “A Statement On LadyGaGa’s Lies (sic).” For his part, Perez — who has warred with everyone from the Black Eyed Peas to Amanda Bynes and Alexa Joel — denies being anything but a friend to Gaga.
Let Perez tell it, he isn’t stalking Gaga and wasn’t even aware she lived in the same building he once considered moving into. In fact, Hilton says, he’s the one who put the kibosh on their five year friendship; although he refuses to discuss just what caused the bust-up.
“…I learned only after the fact that Lady Gaga lives in one of the buildings we looked at and she was across the country in Los Angeles when I viewed that building. After a day of innocent house-hunting, I am devastated and my heart hurts that my former very good friend, a person I used to call my ‘wifey’ and traveled the world with, is making very public and very untrue allegations about me on Twitter.”
“While it is still too painful for me to go into detail about why I chose to no longer make her a part of my life, I will say that I am a critic and not a ‘stalker.’ Any allegation that I am stalking her, based on a day of house-hunting with my baby boy and my mother, is utterly false, defamatory and now appears to be putting me and my family in danger. (sic)”
“YOU ARE A LIAR. I KEPT EVERY PSYCHOTIC TEXT YOU SENT TO MY PHONE.”
Well, this should get interesting.
