Horse heartbreak for Lady Gaga follows award win

Lady Gaga had an emotional night on Sunday – first giving a tearful speech at a film award ceremony, but then rushing to be with her beloved horse after discovering it was dying.

The night started with the star sharing the best actress prize with Glenn Close at the Critics’ Choice Awards.

But she wrote on Twitter: “Just after the show I learned that my dear angel of a horse, Arabella, is dying.

“I am rushing to her now to say goodbye.”

The singer and actress added: “She is and was a beautiful horse. Our souls and spirits were one.

“When she was in pain, so was I. I will never forget the moments we shared. Long hikes together, galloping through the canyons. Feeding her cookies.

“She will forever be a part of me. I am very sad. But I wish for your pain to end, and the gates of heaven to open for you. I love you. Girl, where do you think you’re goin?”

Earlier, she shared some warm moments with Close – one of her rivals for the Oscars – at the Critics’ Choice ceremony in Los Angeles.

The best actress award was shared between Gaga for her role in A Star Is Born and Close for The Wife.

Gaga broke down in tears on stage, and also revealed that Close is “good friends” with her mum. She also won best song for Shallow.

Britain’s Olivia Colman – the other main contender for best actress at the Oscars – won a separate prize for best actress in a comedy for period comedy-drama The Favourite.
