It’s always sad when we see a former pair of famous besties turn into overnight frenemies. The latest pair to have a seemingly out-of-the-blue falling out are Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton. The pop star — who Perez used to refer to as his “wifey” — is now accusing the gossip blogger of stalking her.
The public beef allegedly started last week when Hilton tweeted that Katy Perry’s new single “Roar” was better than Lady Gaga’s “Applause.” That’s when the Twitter war started. On August 16th, Lady Gaga tweeted about a threatening text message Hilton sent her when she was in a wheelchair after her surgery. In another tweet she told her little monsters “not to be affected by someone like this.” Then on Sunday, in a tweet that has since been deleted, GaGa tweeted: “STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!”
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 … 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.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Hilton expressed sadness over the falling out with Gaga:
“My heart hurts that my former very good friend Lady GaGa, a person I used to call my ‘wifey’ and travelled 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.”
Of course, we still don’t know what’s too painful to go into detail about. The public beef is out in the open, but the private scoop is yet to be revealed.Although Hilton made a reference on Twitter to drugs ruining friendships. Sigh. Another pair of famous friends bites the dust.
