Lady Gaga is reportedly terrified her family will disown her if she dates a woman.
The ‘Telephone’ singer – who last month claimed being gay is not a choice – is said to be struggling with her sexuality but is worried what her Catholic parents will think of her lifestyle choice.
A source said: “Gaga is unsure whether she wants to be with a man or a woman. She’s scared that if she falls for a woman, her family will reject her, because ultimately, they want her to settle down with a man. For all Gaga’s success, her love life is a mess – and at the heart of the matter is the fact I think she’s scared of allowing herself to fall in love with another woman.”
Although the ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker – real name Stefani Germanotta – has spoken openly about previously being with other women, her family think it’s all just part of her act.
The source continued to LOOK magazine: “The big issue is that, despite her wild persona, Stef comes from an ultra-traditional Italian Catholic family. Stef told me her grandma is heartbroken that she hasn’t settled down and got married yet. I think if she admitted she could love a woman and it’s not just part of her act, they’d all be surprised. If Stef’s family rejected her for falling for a woman, she’d be utterly heartbroken. She adores them, especially her younger sister Natalie.”
Last month, the 24-year-old star said she believes homosexual men and women are “born” that way.
She said: “There are transsexual women and transgender women and suddenly it becomes poisonous and something else because there are some people in this world that believe being gay is a choice. It’s not a choice, we’re born this way.”
