The hackers had previously stated their intentions to hack the singer's website and struck on June 27. However, the information was not made public till this week, reports the Mirror. The report also states that the hackers labeled Lady Gaga as homophobic. Their statement comes after Gaga dismissed as 'ridiculous' claims that she used the gay community to sell records. Lady Gaga called in the police after thousands of her fans' personal details were stolen from her website.
Mirror quoted a source saying, She's upset and hopes police get to the bottom of how this was allowed to happen.
Mirror report added that record label Universal said that the hackers had taken a content database dump from www.ladygaga.co.uk and a section of email, first name and last name records were accessed. There were no passwords or financial information taken.
We take this very seriously and have put in place additional measures to protect personally identifiable information. All those affected have been advised, they said.
