After revealing that she had been hiding a show injury on Tuesday, singer Lady Gaga has cancelled the rest of her appearances in her "Born This Way Ball" tour.
Mother Monster tweeted a saddening message to her fans on Tuesday that her injury had left her unable to walk after a recent show.
I hid it from my staff, I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can't— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 12, 2013
Gaga had already postponed four dates on her tour from Feb. 13 to Feb. 17 in Chicago, Detroit and Hamilton. However, her injuries were more serious than believed, leading the cancelation of the remainder of her tour dates, according to a Gaga daily blog site.
"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. She 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."
In spite of her injuries, fans from all over the world have flooded Twitter with 'get well' messages for a speedy recovery.
