Lady Gaga has slammed former pal Perez Hilton , revealing some of the blogger’s past bad behavior and telling her fans to “ignore” him.

On Friday, Gaga struck back.
“ Still have the text Perez sent me of me in a wheelchair w the words KARMA written across + Madonna pointing a gun at me. Day of my accident ,” wrote the pop star, referring to the hip injury that kept her sidelined for much of the year.
