Lady Gaga is no longer wheelchair-bound. The ‘Edge of Glory‘ singer has been rolling around in two custom-made designer wheelchairs since her hip surgery last month, but was spotted walking “with ease” for the first time on Tuesday (09.04.13) on a romantic date with her boyfriend Taylor Kinney. The 27-year-old star Lady Gaga appeared to have made a full recovery as she headed to Chicago restaurant Sunday with ‘The Vampire Diaries’ hunk.
The couple sat down to a meal, with an insider telling the New York Post newspaper they looked “sweet together”. Gaga decided to make the most of her recuperation period following her operation for a labral tear on her right hip by buying some high end wheels. She asked luxury brand Mordekai to make her a 24-carat gold plated “chariot”, which she affectionately nicknamed Emma.
The stylish wheelchair also features a black leather seat – which is inspired by vintage motorcycle jackets – and a removable leather canopy. She then upgraded to a Louis Vuitton model, which boasts a seat covered with the French fashion brand’s iconic print and was spotted whizzing around Chicago in her new contraption. The singer was forced to cancel the remaining US dates of her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour after sustaining the hip injury. – Femalefirst
