Lady Gaga apologizes for her early assumptions as to Zombie Boy’s death

Rick Genest, better known as Zombie Boy, was a famous heavily tattooed model. Unfortunately, he passed away at aged just 32 on August 1. He was found dead in his flat in the Plateau-Mont-Royal neighborhood in Montreal, Canada. You probably remember his tattooed body from Lady Gaga’s Born This Way music video. They were not only co-workers but also friends. After his death, she clearly jumped to early conclusions and speculated that Rick’s death was a suicide. She wrote it in the tweet, that is now deleted, and confessed that the death was "beyond devastating".

Later, she regretted those early assumptions and apologized for her comments in a new tweet. "Out of respect for Rick’s family, Rick & his legacy I apologise if I spoke too soon as there was no witnesses or evidence to support any conclusion for the cause of his death. I in no way meant to draw an unjust conclusion. My deepest condolences to his entire family and friends." Then she added "The art we made was sacred to me and I was emotional, he was an incredible artist and his art and heart will live on. Rest In Peace you beautiful soul."
