Okay, so as a disclaimer, you should know that this story is based on a completely made-up conspiracy theory that’s been making its rounds on Twitter and the blogosphere for the past week and a half.
Now, with that being said, let’s delve into the craziness that is Lady Gaga.
According to Twitter user @PRAYINGMANTIS (also known as “Retired Hoe”), Stefani Germanotta (aka Lady Gaga) murdered Lina Morgana in 2008.
Stefani Germanotta & Lina Morgana
In 2007, producer Rob Fusari brought young Staten Island-native Lina Morgana into his studio to become a star. During that same year, Fusari brought in another local singer, Stefani Germanotta – who is now known as Lady Gaga – to join Morgana.
Morgana was said to have committed suicide on October 4, 2008, by jumping off the roof of a Staten Island hotel. She was only 19 at the time of her death.
This is a pretty bold assertion, but there’s more. Retired Hoe breaks it down in the following tweets.
And, as mentioned by this savvy Twitter user, while Gaga has never spoken about Morgana’s death, Morgana’s mother, Yana Morgana, has spoken out about Gaga copying her look.

In an interview with the New York Post, Yana Morgana says Lady Gaga is “holding Lina’s soul.”
“I’m doing this because I want to keep her spirit alive,” Yana the Post. “Lady Gaga is holding Lina’s soul, and I want her soul to be free.”
Yana said that she wants Gaga to release the recordings they made together and to acknowledge that Gaga’s persona – her dark look and artistic style – were influenced by her daughter, Lina.
According to Lina’s ex-manager, the two recorded 12 songs together that were not released.
“Every other word she says is from Lina,” Yana Morgana told the Post. “She talks about having a dark and tragic life, but she had everything she wanted in the world. She went to [the same] high school as Nicky Hilton, her parents were rich. But Lina did have a tough life, and she often talked about her tragic life.”
Morgana's mother even made a video to expose the similarities. "Lady Gaga is holding Lina's soul, and I want her soul to be free." pic.twitter.com/VRGQtHBsQj— retired hoe (@PRAYlNGMANTlS) May 15, 2017
Lina’s ex-boyfriend also commented on Gaga’s looks, saying that he was dumbfounded the first time he saw Gaga on the big screen.
“It was the same style, the same look, the same music, the same voice, the same jaw line – the way they expressed themselves,” Schwab said. “And I was like, ‘Is that Lina?’ It was so, so shocking. It was like looking at a ghost.”
The Morgana Family
Through various press statements and through Lina’s website, the Morgana family basically accuses Lady Gaga of murdering Lina in cold blood.

“I can tell you one thing right now: we, Lina’s family, do not believe that she had an intention to die,” Lina’s aunt, Tatyana, wrote.
“We, as a family, do not believe that Lina committed suicide. Lina’s mom [Yana] wants only one thing – for Lina’s songs to be released… for Lina’s voice to be spread, for her gift to be shared with the world. Isn’t it fair to ask for the girl’s dream to finally come true?”
Apparently, Gaga’s music video for “Paparazzi” is filled with clues.

Just one year after Lina “jumped off a building,” Gaga is shown being pushed off of a balcony in the “Paparazzi” video.

This story is obviously crazy, but it does have a haunting effect. Even so, you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet. However, scrolling through Twitter with a glass of Rosé and a plate of Hummus from Trader Joe’s sure beats whatever it is you’re supposed to be doing right now.
