Lady GaGa's former creative director Laurieann Gibson has no hard feelings about dissolving her partnership with the pop superstar, insisting she is "extremely proud" of the singer.
Gibson helped the Paparazzi hitmaker develop her signature style and directed concerts and music videos as Gaga's longtime collaborator. Their professional relationship recently unravelled amid reports of differing opinions, but the choreographer insists she will never speak ill of her former partner.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Gibson says, "I am fulfilled with the work I have done with choreographing all of the iconic moves, creative directing the artist, appearances, shows, directing the tour, music videos, and the HBO Monster Ball, which was a culmination of my work as its creator and director.
"Recently, Lady Gaga was motivated to take the helm of the creative direction of her career and, as such, I decided to step away. I am extremely proud of her, and, in stepping away, I wish her all the best."
Gaga has not yet made a public comment about her split from Gibson.
