London: Pop star Lady Gaga`s choreographer has denied reports that the singer was hospitalized six times for extreme dieting, which saw her lose as much as 20 pounds between fittings for costumes.
The "Poker Face" singer`s former tour manager David Ciemny, made sensational claims in a book. 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 kg) between the first and final fittings for a show outfit.
However her dance coach Laurieann Gibson has lashed out at Ciemny`s claims, calling it foolishness, reports contactmusic.com.
"I just want to say it`s all foolishness. Why would anyone say that?" Gibson said.
"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," Gibson added.
