LUPUS RE­LAPSE FEARS FOR GAGA!

Star Is Born sen­sa­tion suf­fers pain & weak­ness

Globe - - BREAKING NEWS -

LADY GAGA’S tri­umph in the block­buster flick A Star Is Born has turned to tragedy as her life-sap­ping lupus has re­turned with a vengeance, say friends who fear the con­di­tion will cat­a­pult her into an early grave.

The 32-year-old singer is al­ready bat­tling pierc­ing pain and other gut­ting symp­toms of the dis­ease — where the im­mune sys­tem at­tacks the body in­stead of pro­tect­ing it — and is too mis­er­able to en­joy her movie suc­cess, say sources.

“There are days when she doesn’t even want to get up in the morn­ing be­cause she’s so tired and list­less,” dishes an in­sider. “She suf­fers from chronic pain where she hurts all over. It’s not just her joints that ache — it’s ev­ery mus­cle, ev­ery fiber of her be­ing that hurts.”

Now, the su­per­star’s friends fear she’ll be too weak to ex­ploit her suc­cess with an­other movie or con­cert tour — and could even die young!

In a 2010 in­ter­view, Gaga re­vealed to CNN host Larry King she tested “border­line pos­i­tive” for lupus, which sav­ages joints and or­gans.

“Lupus is in my fam­ily, and it is ge­netic,” Gaga said at the time — and noted her aunt Joanne died from the dis­ease.

She’s also ad­mit­ted bat­tling men­tal ill­ness and the pain con­di­tion fi­bromyal­gia.

Now, as her ca­reer soars, “she doesn’t know if she has the stamina to do an­other film,” says the source. “Her dreams of a Hol­ly­wood act­ing ca­reer are in dan­ger of fad­ing un­less she can beat this thing.”
