Crash Diets Got Lady Gaga in Hospital

With every new music video Lady Gaga releases we can't help but notice she's getting thinner and thinner. And it turns out her extreme diet has landed her in the hospital six times in the last year alone! Who knew?

Gaga managed to keep her frequent hospital visits under the radar, but her former tour manager, David Ciemny, is now spilling the beans about her alleged extreme diet.

According to David she would binge on junk food such as cakes and sweets, then not eat for weeks to fit into her costumes - once losing 20lbs between fittings for one of her outfits.

Describing her condition, David says in Maureen Callahan‘s new book ‘Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga’: “When I say she was sick, I mean physically and mentally."

Talent scout Wendy Starland added: "The pressure on her to lose weight was very high."

David’s wife Angela also claims she used to accompany Gaga on tour alongside her husband, and she would often cuddle up to her in bed before performances.

She said: “I would say, 'Gaga, I have a husband to go home to. I'll be in the room next door.' She'd call and text me, 'I miss you, Ange, can you come back?' So I would. We literally would do our make-up together every morning and get ready for bed together at night."

Normally we would be hesitant to believe something coming out of a tell-all book, but Gaga was forced to cancel four shows back in January after suffering from an irregular heartbeat and exhaustion.

She also broke down in New Zealand in March and has recently tested “borderline positive” for Lupus, a tissue disease, which killed her aunt.

We really hope this extreme dieting is a thing of the past. She's worked so hard to get to where she is, it would be a shame to throw it all away.
