Perez Hilton, the openly gay owner of one of the most successful online gossip sites, perezhilton.com has become a trending topic in the UK after Lady Gaga accused him of stalking her.
• The Just Dance Singer’s latest single Applause has been released early due to a “leak”
• Perez Hilton was reportedly in Lady Gaga’s apartment building looking at property.
• Some of Lady Gaga’s outburst on Twitter has now been deleted.
All is not right in celeb land after Lady Gaga took to Twitter to accuse celebrity blogger Perez Hilton of stalking her, after a fan claimed that Hilton was at the singer’s apartment building in New York.
The singer promptly tweeted:
“STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!”
The meat-wearing Mother of Monsters, then tweeted:
“DO I NEED TO BE SHOT IT IN THE HEAD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT HIM AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT HARASSES ME HAS GONE TOO FAR? IM A HUMAN BEING.”
The tweet has since been deleted.
The celebrity feud appears to have started after Gaga claimed that Hilton had taunted her by sending her a picture showing Madonna pointing a gun at her head, whilst Gaga was confined to the wheelchair. Gaga had recently suffered a hip injury earlier in the year.
Hilton responded to Gaga’s accusation by posted ‘A Statement On Lady GaGa’s Lies’ on his blog.
Read Hilton’s Statement below:
“My heart hurts that my former very good friend Lady GaGa, a person I used to call my ‘wifey’ and traveled [sic] 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 is utterly false, defamatory and now appear to be putting me 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.’ As the suggestion that I pose a danger to GaGa is preposterous, if fans want to send a message of support to her, they should buy her music.”
Some Gaga fans have taken to Twitter to issue death threats.
One user @CsvargasPAUSE Tweeted:
Your son is a devil.. like you!!! C’mon you both dead now! @Perezhilton
Lady Gaga’s new single Applause entered the UK’s Official Singles Chart at No. 5.
In February, Perez Hilton became a father.
