Lady Gaga Using Gold Wheelchair After Surgery

Lady Gaga is recovering from her recent hip surgery in style, as she was snapped riding around in a 24-karat-gold-plated wheelchair.

According to the Daily Beast, the Mother Monster's team got in contact with jewelry designer Ken Borochov of the label Mordekai to design the ride.

"It was a huge undertaking," Borochov says. "It was made all over the United States, my assistant had to run around everywhere."

"1.5 ounces of gold were plated onto the chair," Borochov adds. "I wanted [the wheelchair] to look like a throne."

Borochov previously designed a crown for Gaga last year, as well as the golden claw she wore for an appearance at Harrods. Last month, Gaga had to cancel the remaining dates on her Born This Way Ball tour in order to get surgery for a labral tear in her hip.
