Lady Gaga has a gold wheelchair
The ‘Judas’ singer has been left reliant on a wheelchair after having an operation to repair a labral tear on her right hip last month, and she is recuperating with the help of the extravagant movement aid, which she commissioned from luxury brand Mordekai.
Ken Borochov – who is the creative genius behind Mordekai – designed the chair and although he has worked with Gaga before he was shocked to receive such an unusual request.
In an official statement, Ken said, “I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the ‘Chariot’, a chair fit only for a queen.”
The luxurious wheelchair is completely gold plated, including the rims, and also features a black leather seat – which is inspired by vintage motorcycle jackets – and a removable leather canopy.
The chair can also recline should the 26-year-old pop superstar want to relax.
As well as commissioning the custom made piece of equipment, the eccentric star – who was forced to cancel the remainder of her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour after sustaining the hip injury – has also installed a massive fish tank in her home and imported 27 exotic koi carp fish from Japan to entertain her as she recovers.
A source said, “Gaga said she’d had a dream about the fish so she had her team source some koi and set up a massive tank. The whole exercise cost over £40,000, which is a lot to most people but small change to her.”
