The 26-year-old singer has canceled all of the remaining dates on her North America tour, including some major markets, such as Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Miami and Chicago, Chicago Tribune reported.
Gaga had no choice but to cancel the tour after complaining about weeks of chronic pain, and not being able to walk last Thursday, following her performances in Montreal.
The doctor initially identified her injury as synovitis, severe inflammation of joints, but later discovered a labral tear in her left hip, an injury to her left soft elastic tissue, affecting the outside rim of her hip socket.
Concert promoter Live Nation confirms the tour cancellation, and the singer will be in a strict downtime to recover, Hello! reported.
"After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip," Live Nation said. "She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour, so she can heal."
Lady Gaga, born Stefani Germanotta, took to Twitter to explain to her fans why she had to cancel.
"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 soon as possible and be at 500% again, which is what you deserve."
She continued, "It will hopefully heal as soon as possible, I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I'm sorry."
