Rick Genest AKA ‘Zombie Boy’ was in Lady Gaga’s 2011 Born This Way music video
He fell from a balcony at his home in Montreal, Canada, last Wednesday.
Gaga tweeted: “Out of respect for Rick’s family, Rick & his legacy I apologise if I spoke too soon as there were no witnesses or evidence to support any conclusion for the cause of his death. I in no way meant to draw an unjust conclusion. My deepest condolences to his entire family and friends.”
Gaga, who met heavily tattooed Rick when he starred in the 2011 video for her hit song Born This Way, went on to share a photo of art they made together.
The model’s family says there were too many inconsistencies for his death to be ruled a suicide and slammed the “disappointing” conclusions people had drawn.

The balcony from which he fell on the third floor was very dangerous.
Rick’s manager, Karim Leduc, explained: “The balcony from which he fell on the third floor was very dangerous.
“Just three weeks ago, I visited that balcony with him… It’s an emergency/ fire escape balcony – and he was leaning his back towards it and he fell from his backside on to the floor.”
Last week, Gaga wrote: “The suicide of friend Rick Genest, Zombie Boy is beyond devastating.
“We have to work harder to change the culture, bring mental health to the forefront and erase the stigma that we can’t talk about it.”
David Hasselhoff admitted he worried about the age gap
David Hasselhoff was petrified about marrying longterm Welsh girlfriend Hayley Roberts because of their 27-year age gap.
The Baywatch star, 66, who recently married the 38-year-old former sales assistant, tells OK! magazine: “For the longest time I didn’t think it was right to marry Hayley as I was so much older and I didn’t want to take away the fun and the youth and the excitement of growing old together and having children.
“We’ve been together for seven years and we’ve had such a great time…”
The pair married in Puglia, Italy and the actor’s daughters Taylor Ann, 28, and Hayley, 25, passed his wife-to-be’s wedding band to him during the ceremony.
The couple first met when David was a judge on Britain’s Got Talent.
Hayley approached him for an autograph, he asked her for her phone number in return.
JT defended Pink, calling her hard-working
Justin Timberlake has defended pop star Pink for taking a beach day after she pulled out of her concert in Australia.
Pink, who said she was resting up after a nasty illness that had forced her to cancel the Sydney gig, angered fans after pictures showed her enjoying a day off with daughter, Willow, seven.
Justin, 37, wrote on social media: “As an artist who has had the fortune of sharing the stage twice on tour with Pink, I’m here to tell you that you won’t find a harder-working person.”
He then lashed out at critics: “Go make up some fodder about somebody who’s half-a**in’ it… Wishing you full health and speedy recovery, Pink!”
Earlier Pink, 38, addressed the backlash by asking where were the snaps of her doctor’s visits and the ones with her, “seven-year-old asking me why these creepy men [paparazzi] are surrounding us and taking pictures of her every move”.
Tony Hadley arriving for the TV Choice Awards 2016
Tony Hadley has blasted former Spandau Ballet bandmates as he releases new solo album, Talking To The Moon.
Discussing why he refused to reunite with the group recently, Tony, 58, said: “They can sugar-coat it as much as they like, but they know exactly why I left the band. I was forced into a no-win situation.
“I thought we’d go off and do solo work and I’d release my album, then we’d get back together again. That was the way I planned it; they didn’t see it like that.”
Former frontman Tony and the band – whose members include brothers Gary and Martin Kemp, Steve Norman and John Keeble – have been at war since he quit, reportedly over money, after 40 years in July 2017.
The True hitmakers have since recruited lead singer Ross William Wild, 30, whom they introduced at an intimate gig at London’s Subterania in June.
