Poor Lady Gaga has announced via Twitter that she is in grieving for her beloved godfather.
Lady Gaga and the Germanotta family are in mourning for the 'Bad Romance' singer's beloved godfather.
Gaga posted a tweet which paid tribute to the man who played a very special part in her life, along with an adorable picture of the two together:
“My godfather died yesterday, sweet man I love him. That’s me, just a lil baby in his arms. Buono note.”

The snap definitely shows just how much Lady Gaga meant to her godfather, even before she shot to fame as Mother Monster - just look at the proud grin on his face.
It's a well known fact that godparents have a much larger role in traditional Italian families, often sharing a bond with their little godchild far greater than that of blood relatives - after all, they were chosen to be honoured with the relationship.
Our thoughts are with Lady Gaga at this difficult time.
