Lady Gaga’s choreographer has slammed reports the star’s meteoric rise to fame prompted a dangerous eating disorder.
Earlier this year the Poker Face singer’s former tour manager, David Ciemny, made sensational claims in a new book alleging the singer was hospitalised six times in 2009 due to her drastic dieting.

He told the book’s author Maureen Callahan that Gaga’s crash dieting went to such extremes she lost a staggering 20 pounds (9.1 kilograms) between the first and final fittings for a show outfit.

But the pop sensation’s dance coach Laurieann Gibson has lashed out at Ciemny’s claims, telling, “I just want to say it’s all foolishness. Why would anyone say that?

“Clearly you have nothing to do with these dynamics, creatively or really with the people that are working so hard. She doesn’t have an eating disorder, and whoever is saying that is an a**hole. Quote me! We are fighting for our dreams. There’s no hocus pocus there. The guy saying it has absolutely nothing to do with Lady Gaga.”
