Lady Gaga Forced To Use Wheelchair After Cancelling World Tour Over Hip Injury

The 'You & I' singer has been using a wheelchair to get around as she tries to heal a tear on her hip.

 Lady Gaga has revealed she has been forced to use a wheelchair in the wake of the hip injury that led her to cancel the remaining dates on her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour last week.

The 'Marry The Night' singer cancelled the final 21 dates on her world tour last week after revealing she had been suffering from chronic pain due to a tear on her right hip, and later confirmed she will need surgery to repair the injury.

Lady Gaga has now shared a picture of the wheelchair she is using at the moment, which she has christened Emma, while she prepares to have surgery to get back to full health.

"This is Emma," Gaga simply tweeted, in one of the few tweets posted on her account since news of the tour cancellation emerged.

The 'You & I' singer originally postponed four tour dates in an effort to give her time to recover, but was later forced to scrap the entire 'Born This Way Ball' jaunt after doctors advised her to have surgery and allow time to recover.

Earlier this week a close friend of the singer said she believes Gaga's boyfriend Taylor Kinney is "the one" for her, and predicted the two will stay together.

Lady Gaga is currently working on her third studio album 'ARTPOP' which is expected out in Autumn this year.
