Lady Gaga Banned From Yankee Clubhouse After Boozy Antics

The New York Post reported on Sunday that Yankees co-chairman Hal Steinbrenner was upset with the singer’s boozy antics – including swigging whiskey and repeatedly fondling her boobs – and permanently banned from the team’s clubhouse, during a visit to the house that Ruth built Friday night.

The songstress and two girlfriends sauntered their way into the Bombers’ clubhouse – without team approval – and hung out for 30 minutes after the team lost to the Mets.

She met six players – including Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano – and while the “Poker Face” singer kept slurring her words trying to say how much she loved the Yankees and how thrilled she was to be inside the exclusive area, sources said.

Gaga, drinking Jameson Irish Whiskey, was wearing a Yankees jersey half-unbuttoned, exposing her black bra, fishnet stockings and a bikini bottom.

However, the star thought that all these weren’t enough to catch the players’ eyes, so she kept groping her chest over her jersey.

Hal Steinbrenner, who is co-chairman with brother Hank, club president Randy Levine, general manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi all had no idea she was going to show up, sources said.

In fact, when a NY Post reporter told Cashman about Gaga’s presence, Cashman said, “What? I didn’t know that,” and stormed off.

The bizarre incident was the 24-year-old raunchy songstress’ second recent run-in at a baseball game.

Lady Gaga's appearances at recent Yankees and Mets games - including this one-fingered salute at Citi Field - have inspired a promotion for David Wright by the Amazin's.

About two weeks ago, June 10, Lady Gaga, who grew up a lifelong Yankees fan, attended a game at the Mets’ Citi Field and made an obscene gesture while being photographed.

She showed up in the fifth-inning and threw a tantrum when she was seated in the front-row.

After cursing out nearby photographers, she forced the team to move her to Jerry Seinfeld’s luxury box. Then she flipped off the Flushing crowd with both fingers after swilling beers (see the photo.)

However, the team issued a statement later on Sunday saying the “Bad Romance” singer had not been banished from the team’s locker room.

“She’s not banned,” Brian Cashman, the team’s general manager, said on Sunday. “Celebrities aren’t banned. If Michael Jordan showed up here he would have access (to the clubhouse), but not after a loss.”

“That was the wrong time and the wrong place,” Mr Cashman said. “It’s been taken care of.” Mr Cashman said it was “not her fault”. [via NY Post and NY Daily News]
