Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer, has revealed that the superstar singer never stopped supporting him after the violent encounter where he was shot and her dogs were kidnapped.
In a new interview with Gayle King for CBS News, Fischer has said that Gaga has been extremely supportive since he was attacked, and helped him in numerous ways.
“She’s been a friend for me,” he told King. “After I was attacked, my family was flown out, and I had trauma therapists flown to me.”
He continued, saying, “I stayed at her house for months while friends comforted me and security was around me.”
Back in February, Fischer was walking Gaga’s dogs Koji, Gustav, and Asia when he was shot four times and the dogs were stolen. He eventually recovered, but not before a hospital stay and some long-term trauma.
Since he got out of the hospital, Fischer has been updating followers on social media with how his healing journey is going, and recently set up a fundraiser to raise money for a new van and a cross-country trip to meet with healers, trauma programs, spiritual leaders, and retreats.
When Fischer initially put up the fundraiser, many fans were left wondering why the singer and actress couldn’t help him. Now, Fischer has told King off-camera that he set up the fundraiser because he did not want to keep relying on Gaga for help. “LG’s very supportive of my journey right now,” he said.
