Lady Gaga cancels Chicago shows do to `injury`

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

There are a lot of disappointed "little monsters" Tuesday after Lady Gaga canceled her two shows at the United Center this week.

Gaga says she has a condition called "synovitus" -- a severe inflammation of the joints—that she's been dealing with for a month. She says that after a concert Wednesday night, she could barely walk.

In a statement released Tuesday, Gaga said, "I am completely devastated and heartsick. I've been hiding this injury and pain from my staff for a month, praying it would heal, but after last night's performance I could not walk. To the fans in Chicago, Detroit and Hamilton, I hope you can forgive me as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself right now. I would do anything for you. I will hopefully heal as soon as possible and be at 500% again, which is what you deserve."

Lady Gaga was supposed to perform in Chicago Wednesday and Thursday. There is no information yet on when the shows may be rescheduled.
