Lady Gaga has been described as sick, unhealthy and obsessed in an explosive tell-all which documents her alleged drug abuse and dangerous diet.
In an interview with Star, investigative journalist Ian Halperin makes some startling allegations about the performer, insisting she is a time bomb.
"Those who have worked with her on tour reported to me that Lady Gaga barely ate for weeks at a time to fit into her costume," said Halperin.
"She is sick and obsessed with her weight ... Gaga will stare at herself in the mirror for hours, analyzing, critiquing her body. It's an unhealthy obsession."
While most people believe her outrageous outfits and heavy makeup are just part of her act, Halperin says there is a more sinister reason behind her look.
"Her lupus is far worse than she lets on," he said of the chronic autoimmune disease, which the 25-year-old pop phenomenon has admitted to having.
"Part of the reason she wears wigs and makeup is because her hair is falling out and she's covered in red blotches, both side effects of the disease."But her weight and her health are not her only problems, Halperin claims.
"Her drug use started young. From heroin to cocaine and ecstasy, her friends say she has done every drug conceivable. You name it she has done it."
"She's morphed into this caricature called Lady Gaga, who isn't even real. The girl known as Stefi to her friends and family has all but disappeared."
Halperin has already penned biographies of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Michael Jackson, whose death he eerily predicted.
Still, these biographies are suspect to say the least.
Unsubstantiated rumors fly about Gaga all the time. She's a rumored hermaphrodite, remember? Just because you read it doesn't make it true.
Gaga has been open about her drug use and many other issues she's struggled with, and as celebrities go, is remarkably up front about who she is.
We hope she takes care of herself so that she can continue being the performer she is for years to come, but wouldn't read too much into this.
