Perez Hilton issues statement on new Lady Gaga feud, urges fans to stop 'death threats'

Pop superstar Lady Gaga hit out at gossip writer Perez Hilton recently, telling her fans that just after her accident he sent her a photograph of herself in a wheelchair "with Madonna pointing a gun" at her and accompanied it by emblazoning it with the word 'Karma'.

The feud escalated over the weekend with the 'Applause' hitmaker accusing Hilton of stalking her and trying to buy an apartment in her building, which has since prompted her Little Monsters to bombard him with abuse.

Gaga originally tweeted: "Stay away from me + my family, you are sick trying to rent an apartment in my building to stalk me. Leave me alone!"

Hilton has been sharing some of the aggressive messages sent by her fans, such as "I'm going to kill your son if you don't leave Gaga alone", with his followers on Twitter and has now issued a statement about the messy situation.

He writes: "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."

He concluded the statement by urging the 'Born This Way' icon's fans to stop sending him death threats, adding: "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."
