Lady Gaga is dealing with a personal tragedy after two of her dogs were stolen and someone close to her was attacked. As the Daily Mail reports, Gaga's dogwalker was out with the singer's pets on Wednesday night when he was suddenly shot and the dogs were taken.
Gaga's dogwalker is hospitalized but "recovering well"
Gaga's dogwalker has been named as Ryan Fischer, and he was reportedly outside his Los Angeles home when he was attacked by two unidentified men on Wednesday. The Daily Mail shares that Fischer was shot four times in the chest while he was out walking Gaga's three French Bulldogs— Koji, Gustav, and Miss Asia.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the Los Angeles Police Department said the shooting took place on Sierra Bonita Avenue at 9:40 PM. The shooter is said to have been in a white sedan, which he fled in after using a semi-automatic handgun. Miss Asia escaped, but Koji and Gustav were captured. And while Fischer is currently hospitalized, the Daily Mail shares he's said to be "'recovering well.'"
Gaga asking for a $500K reward "no questions asked"
Gaga wasn't in Los Angeles when the tragic incident occurred, as Fischer had been caring for the dogs while she is out of the country. The singer— whose real name is Stefani Germanotta— is currently in Rome filming the new movie Gucci, which is directed by Ridley Scott and set to be released later this year.
A source has told Entertainment Tonight that Gaga is offering a reward of half a million dollars in exchange for the safe return of Koji and Gustav, which comes with "no questions asked." As the Daily Mail shares, at this time it is not known if the incident "'was a robbery,'" or if the assailants were specifically looking to kidnap Gaga's French Bulldogs.
There is also an email address, KojiandGustav@gmail.com, that has been set up so that anyone who does have the dogs can get in contact. Here's hoping that Fischer's recovery will continue to go well, and that Koji and Gustav will soon make a safe return to Gaga!
