Lady Gaga’s ailments are more severe than originally thought and have forced her to cancel the remainder of her U.S. tour.
Yesterday, the pop star announced the postponement of four dates due to “severe joint inflammation.” However, “after additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip caused by strenuous repetitive movements in her performances,” according to a statement posted on her website.
As a result, Gaga “will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour, so she can heal.”
A total of 20 dates have been affected an refunds will be available at point of purchase starting February 14th.
