Lady Gaga's feud with celeb gossip blogger Perez Hilton is real and resurfacing anew this week, with heated words exchanged between the former friends.
During an interview with Howard Stern Tuesday, the 27-year-old singer didn't hold back while explaining why their once-close relationship unraveled.
"What happened was we were doing an interview ... and in the middle of the interview he started asking me really terrible questions," Gaga said of Perez.
"He was being very negative about Born This Way and we had had a lot to drink. He was supposed to be my friend and I felt betrayed, so I started crying."
"My friend had to come in and pull the camera out. They wouldn't turn the cameras off. He apologized, but I felt like it was like, 'But I'm Perez Hilton so I'm allowed to treat you this way.'"
"I looked at him and said, 'Just because you are who you are, does not mean our friendship doesn't mean anything when the cameras turn on. So, now I see who you really are.'"
"I was done after that. He's just mad that I don't want to hang out anymore. I don't want to be around fake people. I really believed, when I first met him, that he wanted to change."
"I really believed that he wanted to bully people less on his site and that he wanted to move into a more positive space. I was really there for him and I really supported him."
Gaga reiterated her previous claim that Perez Hilton is a stalker tried to move into the NYC apartment next to her, and that she feared for her safety as a result.
"I freaked out so much about it because I have no rights," she revealed to Stern. "My sister [Natali] was sleeping there and it made me scared and upset."
"And then he lied and told everybody that he wasn't stalking me, but that next day - after I asked him to leave me alone - he put an offer in on two apartments in the building!"
"Why do you need to live in my apartment? There's only one reason: to try to hurt me, or harass me, or blow yourself up. If you hate me, hate me from over there."
"Continue to fire away on your blog and your Twitter."
On cue, Hilton was quick to fire back on the social media platform, writing "@LadyGaga So you called ME fake on the @HowardStern this morning. Ha!"
"Thanks for the laugh! Have you looked in the mirror lately???"
"@LadyGaga And I was the one who pulled away from u after I realized what a real-life vampire you are! It's been your M.O. your whole career!"
"@LadyGaGa Keep talking about me, though. I love the press!"
