NEW YORK: An all-out twitter war seems to have broken out between Lady Gaga and her former friend and blogger Perez Hilton.
It happened like this: Perez was seen near Lady Gaga’s apartment in New York on Sunday even though the lady was not in New York at that time. Some Lady Gaga fans spotted him and tweeted that Perez Hilton was seen around her apartment.
Lady Gaga panicked and called Perez a stalker. She asked her fans to take any pictures of him if they spot Perez near her apartment. She said she had called security and warned him not to stalk her.
“STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!” Lady Gaga said.
Perez Hilton responded with a statement on what he called `Lady Gaga’s Lies.’
He said he was house-hunting as he wants his family to move back to New York from LA.
Perez wrote, “I have long had plans to return to New York City more permanently. New York was my home for 6 years in the mid 90s, before I moved to Los Angeles. I also lived here for 3 months last year while doing an off Broadway show. I’m a new father and I am primarily focused on my family and where we will be most happy. I love New York and that is where me and my growing family want to call home right now.
“Sunday, my realtor showed us a list of possible apartments to rent. 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. I will continue to be a critic – in a way that is not mean or involves name-calling, and I will continue to have an opinion and talk about music and songs, like GaGa’s `Applause’.
“I hope her fans stop sending me death threats, as the suggestion that I pose a danger to Lady GaGa is preposterous. If her fans want to send a message of support to Lady GaGa, they should buy her music.
“Notwithstanding my feelings about our personal relationship, I do wish Lady GaGa happiness and continued success and I assure you my family house hunting has nothing to do with her.’’
Just this Friday Lady Gaga had fired a salvo at Perez, telling him that she still had that text message from him mocking her when she underwent a hip surgery earlier this year and was confined to a wheelchair for weeks.
“Still have the text Perez sent me of me in a wheelchair w (with) the words KARMA written across + Madonna pointing a gun at me. Day of my accident,” Lady Gaga said in her post.
Her salvo came after Perez tweeted trashing Lady Gaga’s new single Applause, saying, “It is so unrelatable. This song is about her. It’s a few steps backwards, I’m really disappointed.”He asked, “Does Lady Gaga’s Applause sound too much like Madonna’s Girl Gone Wild to you?”
