Lady Gaga's Bodyguard Criticized for 'Choking' a Fan

Lady Gaga wears a little pop of pink with her black outfit while arriving at the Balenciaga store on Thursday (March 5) in Paris, France.

The 28-year-old singer is currently in the City of Light during fashion week and was spotted out earlier that day with her bodyguard.

When a fan got too close to the star and wouldn’t move away, the bodyguard pulled the fan aside in a chokehold position and the incident was caught on video. Some people have criticized the bodyguard for being too aggressive. Watch the video below and decide for yourself.

    That’s by-the-book assault caught on video. Gaga, what happened to love for your fanbase? Do you condone your handlers hurting them to keep your manicure safe? Are you going to get in the Top 40 again with jazz standards? Do you truly believe your money and fame has nothing to do with your fiancee wanting to marry you? Hope that pre-nup is ironclad. Write hits again or adjust to the status of a glittery has-been.

    this is so sad, cause i think Gaga is such a nice person… shame on the bodyguard…

  • CS

    That guy was in her face. She clearly looks startled and scared. It’s her bodyguard’s job to protect his client. The guy should have known better- any pop star of that caliber is going to have handlers, and he didn’t need to be in her face. All she wanted to do was get to her car.

  • Cosmic Cow

    The bodyguard manhandling the kid was unnecessary.

  • CS

    He was protecting his client. Anyone with an ounce of sense will know you can’t get that close to a celebrity. What if he’d had a knife or a gun? And the bodyguard didn’t do anything? Then we’d all be asking why the bodyguard didn’t do more to protect her.

  • Cosmic Cow

    He protected his client by using excessive force.

  • CS

    Because he was in her face. I’ve met Gaga on the street before and they are extremely protective of her. Who wants a creep in their face?

  • Sam the Man

    There was nothing excessive about what he did. Excessive is subjective.

  • Sam the Man

    I don’t really see a problem. Body guards do what body guards do.

  • Sam the Man

    “That’s by-the-book assault caught on video.” Who’s book? Yours?

  • Jetstream

    ……the book is figurative for penal codes people break when, hence, they ‘break’ the law……But Sam the Man, what do I know that you don’t, right?

  • Opinionated

    The problem with Gaga is that she still thinks she can walk around like a regular person. She looks scared this time because of the comotion going on. Was the bodyguard too agressive ? yes.

  • Shit

    …Madonna is that you? 0_-

  • Jetstream

    +1 well played my friend, well played….

  • jaberwoky

    That guy is no a fan, just look at him! He’s a creep in Gaga’s face, and you can tell she isn’t liking him. He’s a scary guy! Pete does a professional job on him, and no broken bones or blood. Good job Pete.

  • Lillian

    That is NOT a chokehold. People are so freaking sensitive,please. he was doing his job and that boy was getting were he shouldn’t. He was to close, so he was pulled out the faster and the most efficient way. Well done bodyguard. I hope that boy learns what personal space is in the future.

    GAGA The GREAT !! The fan was wrong and the bodyguard did his job and that is to guard Lady Gaga. The bodyguard can’t win or lose because if the fan hurt Gaga, then people will be screaming, why did he not stop the attacker and now people mainly Madonna fans are screaming he was too rough. As a true Little Monster, I appreciate the bodyguard doing his job. I am so ready for Gaga’s new pop album coming next year. This next album will end Madonna once and for all. Every day, Madonna is getting older and older. Her tour is going to be a disaster because she now dances in slow motion. I predict Madonna will be talking to the audience about 95% of the show. Pop music and old grandma does not mesh very well. Madonna needs to make this her farewell tour like Shania Twain. Madonna will be 57 this year and Shania Twain is 48. Bow out gracefully like Shania. Gaga stay safe. Take all the time you need to make the next album and tour. Please do not release anymore information about the album because the other poptarts and Madonna fans are watching like hawks.

    “Lady Gaga killed by obsessive fan. Where was her lazy bodyguards” comment you on next day.

  • http://notonly.ru/ Маргарита Бабовникова

    There is a lot of mad people, like every 100th has a mental diagnosis. This is huge amount. You shouldn’t be nice when you in potential danger, shouldn’t even try.

  • mafragias

    i am not saying, that he shouldn’t have protected her. I am just saying that this kinda reflects bad on her, that it shouldn’t be…

  • Opinionated

    She makes me laugh!, she looks confused running into the van.Look at her with her hands, she’s like oh my God, oh my God . LOL

  • suzybel

    That’s what bodyguards are supposed to do. He was doing his job. I’d be firing his *ss if he were my bodyguard and didn’t keep the creeps off.

  • GraphicJack

    The reason people hate Little Monsters so much is because they don’t listen to their own Mother’s mantra of anti-bullying. It’s perfectly reasonable and possible for you to gush about your icon without trashing someone else’s. You don’t make yourself or someone else look better by trying to tear down someone else. Ageism isn’t pretty or cute. There is no reason for any artist to “retire” or “age gracefully” if they still feel they have something to contribute or say and there is an audience for them. We all age. Just you wait. Will you want Gaga to retire when she’s in her 50′s if she’s still able to write music you like? There is room for all sorts of artists, young and old. I’m not threatened by anyone and you shouldn’t be either.. It bespeaks deep insecurity. Grow up.
