Meanwhile, Perez Hilton denied he was “stalking” Lady Gaga after a series of nasty tweets were exchanged between the former friends.

It appears to have started last week when Hilton posted that he thought Katy Perry’s new song “Roar” was better than “Applause,” which sparked angry and threatening tweets from Gaga’s “little monsters.”

Then, a Little Monster fan said that they spotted Hilton at Gaga’s NYC apartment building. The “Born This Way” singer tweeted, "STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!" The tweet was later removed.

In response, the gossip blogger posted a statement on PerezHilton.com, “I love New York and that is where me and my growing family want to call home right now. Sunday, my realtor showed us a list of possible apartments to rent. I learned only after the fact that Lady GaGa lives in one of the buildings we looked at, and she was across the country in Los Angeles when I viewed that building. Any allegation that I am stalking her, based on a day of house hunting with my baby boy and my mother, is utterly false, defamatory and now appears to be putting me and my family in danger.”

Perez also told The Hollywood Reporter, “My heart hurts that my former very good friend Lady GaGa, a person I used to call my 'wifey' and traveled the world with, is making very public and very untrue allegations about me on Twitter. While it is still too painful for me to go into detail about why I chose to no longer make her a part of my life, I will say that I am a critic and not a stalker.”
