Second larney wheelchair for Lady Gaga

2013-04-01 17:05

Los Angeles - Lady Gaga has purchased a new custom-made Louis Vuitton wheelchair.

The 27-year-old Edge of Glory singer - who was previously seen in a 24-carat gold plated ''chariot'' as she recovers from hip surgery - was spotted celebrating her birthday in Chicago in the new designer creation, which features a seat covered with the French fashion brand's iconic brown and tan initials print.

The Judas singer has been left reliant on a wheelchair after having an operation to repair a tear on her right hip last month, and she is recuperating with the help some very extravagant movement aids.

The star was previously photographed in a lavish gold wheelchair, which she commissioned from luxury brand Mordekai.

Ken Borochov - who is the creative genius behind Mordekai - designed the chair and although he has worked with Gaga before he was shocked to receive such an unusual request. 

In an official statement, Ken previously said: ''I certainly wasn't expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the 'Chariot', a chair fit only for a queen.''

The luxurious wheelchair is completely gold plated, including the rims, and also features a black leather seat - which is inspired by vintage motorcycle jackets - and a removable leather canopy. 

The chair can also recline should the pop superstar want to relax.

The singer was forced to cancel the remaining US dates of her Born This Way Ball tour after sustaining the hip injury.

    Sickening. People the world over, especially children, have no access to crutches let alone physio- or remedial-therapy and so are destined to be crippled all their lives. One person spends gazillions on TWO chairs. Utterly loathsome.

    Every story - all year long about Gaga seems to be an April Fools day joke...

    She has donated millions of dollars to MANY charity organisations. When was the last time YOU did something good for an under priveliged person? Whether your think she's talented or not, she's a marketing genius.

    Seems a tad over the top if you ask me! But what does one expect from Lady Gagga! I am going for the same surgery in two weeks time and there has been no mention of being in a wheelchair.

    She has donated millions of dollars to many charities! She visited a children's shelter here in South Africa working with UNICEF. She is the most kind and giving person I have ever known. She doesn't just dance and sing like many other FAKE pop stars, she changes lives. I attended her concert here in SA and I was not hypnotized into "Devil Worship"...okay? She deserves to be spoiled during this difficult time. Please do not be ignorant! I seriously doubt that someone who promotes peace and self-love is a "Satanist". Anyone hurling their 10th rate religious platitudes needs to be a REAL Christian and leave the judging to "God".

    like most of you, i was at first sickened by this story, for the same reason you were. but it was brought to my attention that Gaga is well known for her charitable work, and I certainly hope that when she is done with these bizarre wheelchairs, she auctions them off and donates the proceeds. otherwise, this is just a selfish publicity stunt, for which she is also well known.
