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.”
