(Newser) – Perez Hilton has always been a Lady Gaga fan, and the feeling appeared to be mutual—so what happened to turn the gossip blogger and the singer against each other? It's not clear how their recent Twitter feud started, but over the past few days Hilton has been tweeting about how badly Gaga's latest single is doing on the charts, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Then Gaga tweeted about a cruel text message Hilton allegedly sent her on the day she had an accident and ended up in a wheelchair, and yesterday she took things a step further and accused Hilton of stalking her. (That tweet has since been deleted.)

Hilton responded in a statement (accompanied by a picture of him and Gaga together in happier times), explaining that he had been apartment hunting in New York City and, unbeknownst to him, the realtor showed him a place in Gaga's building. "After a day of innocent house-hunting, I am devastated and my heart hurts that my former very good friend, a person I used to call my 'wifey' and traveled the world with, is making very public and very untrue allegations about me on Twitter," he wrote. He has since been re-tweeting threats against him made by Gaga fans, and wrote today that he's scared for his safety and his son. He's also been hinting that addiction has something to do with the whole thing, tweeting, "Drugs don't just ruin lives.They run friendships and careers too. Stay away!!!!"
