Lady Gaga apologises for declaring Zombie Boy’s death a suicide

Lady Gaga has apologised for previously declaring Zombie Boy’s death a suicide.

The 32-year-old pop star has sent her “deepest condolences” to the family and friends of the heavily tattooed model – whose real name was Rick Genest – and said sorry for speaking “too soon” about her pal’s passing after his loved ones insisted he didn’t deliberately take his own life when he fell from a balcony at his home in Montreal on Wednesday, August 1.

She tweeted: “Out of respect for Rick’s family, Rick & his legacy I apologize if I spoke too soon as there was no witnesses or evidence to support any conclusion for the cause of his death.

“I in no way meant to draw an unjust conclusion My deepest condolences to his entire family and friends.”
