London: Pop star Lady Gaga is mourning the death of her grandfather Joseph Germanotta.
He passed away Friday. He was 88.
The pop superstar jetted back to her native New York last week to visit her grandfather at the Lincoln Park nursing home in New Jersey. Dailystar.co.uk reports, Germanotta passed away two days after Gaga`s visit.
Gaga spoke about her grandfather`s health troubles at a show earlier this year, telling the crowd: "I don`t always talk about my personal life but my grandpa`s sick. I`m really close with my grandpa and he`s really sick and he`s in the US and my dad`s with him. So I was, like, crying all day, really sad. So I thought I would be honest and tell you that`s what`s going on... It`s been one of those tough things that my grandpa`s too old to come to my show."
