Shookt!!! Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot and her two French bulldogs, Koji and Gustav, were stolen in Hollywood.
The singer is offering half-a-million dollars to anyone who has her two dogs, no questions asked. The singer is currently in Rome to film a movie.
An email address for tips, KojiandGustav@gmail.com, has been set up. Anyone who has the dogs can use this email to retrieve the reward.
The dog walker was shot once Wednesday night and is expected to survive his injuries, according to Los Angeles Police Capt. Jonathan Tippett, commanding officer of the department’s elite Robbery-Homicide Division. The man was walking three of Lady Gaga’s dogs at the time, but one escaped. That dog has been recovered safely.
According to The Associated Press, Tippett told that the dogs belong to pop star, Lady Gaga. It’s not yet clear if the dog walker was targeted because of his celebrity client, the captain said.
The victim, whose name has not been released, was walking the dogs when a white Nissan Altima pulled over and two men tried to steal the animals, police said.
“Two suspects exited the vehicle and demanded the victim turn over the dogs at gunpoint. The victim struggled with the suspects and was shot once by one of the suspects,” a police statement said.
The suspects nabbed two of the three dogs and drove off in the Nissan sedan, the statement said.
Video captured by the doorbell camera of a nearby home shows the white sedan pulling up next to the dog walker and two men in dark clothing getting out.
French bulldogs can cost thousands of dollars. A woman in San Francisco was beaten in January at gunpoint as three men stole her gray French bulldog puppy named Chloe, police said.
Gaga has remained among the biggest pop stars in the world since breaking through with her 2008 album “The Fame,” known as much for her shape-shifting persona on stages and red carpets as for her danceable music and powerful vocal pipes.
She has won 11 Grammy Awards, headlined the Super Bowl’s halftime show, and has now become a bona fide Hollywood star after co-starring in 2018’s “A Star is Born” with Bradley Cooper and winning an Oscar.
