Mike and Tricia’s Hollywood Dirt Report for Tuesday November 15
SPLITSVILLE – LADY GAGA AND HER CHOREOGRAPHER: LADY GAGA has parted ways with a woman who was instrumental in creating…well…Lady Gaga: choreographer Laurieann Gibson.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, things started going south a few months ago after Gibson launched her own reality TV career and began spilling inside secrets from the Gaga camp. In a May interview with L.A. Times, Gibson suggested that as the pop star’s creative director, she was the one responsible for Gaga’s look, a style Gibson claims she modeled after Madonna, saying, “Listen, [Madonna] should be bitter because I [made Lady Gaga in her image] on purpose and you can quote me. I did it on purpose because for all those kids who believe that you can’t, I wanted to let them feel that you can.”
The not-always reliable MediaTakeOut gossip site, meanwhile, claims things escalated after a recent argument over the phone after Gaga said she thinking of getting a new choreographer. The source said, “A lot of things were said, and it was very heated.” Richard Jackson, who was Gibson’s assistant, is now choreographing all of Lady G’s performances.

KARDASHIAN KNEWS – KIM BEING SUED: A hair removal company is accusing KIM KARDASHIAN of being a liar. Kim is currently the spokesperson for TRIA home laser hair removal system, but Radiant, a rival company that sells ‘no!no! hair’, claims Kim doesn’t actually use the product. In legal papers, Radiant argues that Kim says she uses TRIA all over her body, but even TRIA says it’s not safe for certain areas. They also argue that Kim has publically stated on many occasions that she’s been getting professional hair removal treatments for decades. Radiant is trying to get TRIA and Kim to stop making their false claims. They are also seeking unspecified damages.
Meanwhile … Kim took to her blog yesterday to thank her fans for all their support, and blow them a kiss, as she deals with her divorce. She promised she’d “start sharing my updates with you all again.” Oh, goodie!
