Lady Gaga\'s 24-carat gold wheelchair
Lady Gaga is using a 24-carat gold plated 'chariot' as she recovers from hip surgery.
The 'Judas' singer has been left reliant on a wheelchair after having an operation to repair a labral tear on her right hip last month, and she is recuperating with the help of the extravagant movement aid, which she commissioned from luxury brand Mordekai.
Ken Borochov - who is the creative genius behind Mordekai -designed the chair and although he has worked with Gaga before he was shocked to receive such an unusual request.
In an official statement, Ken said: 'I certainly wasn't expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the 'Chariot', a chair fit only for a queen.'
The luxurious wheelchair is completely gold plated, including the rims, and also features a black leather seat - which is inspired by vintage motorcycle jackets - and a removable leather canopy.
The chair can also recline should the 26-year-old pop superstar want to relax.
As well as commissioning the custom made piece of equipment, the eccentric star - who was forced to cancel the remainder of her 'Born This Way Ball' tour after sustaining the hip injury - has also installed a massive fish tank in her home and imported 27 exotic koi carp fish from Japan to entertain her as she recovers.
A source said: 'Gaga said she'd had a dream about the fish so she had her team source some koi and set up a massive tank. The whole exercise cost over Â£40,000, which is a lot to most people but small change to her.'
