Yankees' general manager, Brian Cashman, has shot down rumors mentioning the singer has been banned from the team clubhouse following June 18 inicdent, saying 'She's not banned.'
A representative for the New York Yankees has shot down reports Lady GaGa has been banned from the team clubhouse after allegedly infuriating baseball bosses with her drunken behavior on Friday night, June 18. The "Poker Face" hitmaker, a lifelong Yankees fan, joined star players including Ronson Cano for drinks inside the team's clubhouse after they lost the Subway Series game 4-0 to the New York Mets.
The New York Post claimed an inebriated GaGa, who was scantily dressed in a Yankees shirt worn over black underwear with fishnet stockings, had angered team bosses by talking her way into the private lounge after the game. The tabloid went on to allege the singer stunnned sportsmen by groping her breasts over her jersey before leaving via a private exit.
News of GaGa's raunchy antics quickly reached the Yankees' top executives and co-chairman Hal Steinbrenner was reportedly so angry at the revelation, he'd notified all staff at Yankee Stadium that the eccentric pop star is no longer welcome in the clubhouse. But the Yankees' general manager, Brian Cashman, dismissed the claims, telling ESPN, "She's not banned. Celebrities aren't banned."
Acknowledging the singer's presence at the venue on Friday, Cashman adds, "There is just a time and place. It is not her fault." It's not the first time the singer has hit the headlines at a baseball game, GaGa caused controversy in early June when she attended a match between the Mets and the visiting San Diego Padres, when she demanded a seat change after noticing photographers snapping her every move.
She was moved to comedian Jerry Seinfeld's vacant box but proceeded to take off her leather jacket to reveal her underwear and then began to flip her middle finger at the snappers down below.
