"I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and Im sorry."

That's the desperately apologetic message that Lady Gaga sent out to all her Little Monsters after being forced to suddenly cancel four Born This Way Ball Tour dates because she "could not walk" following Monday's show.

"I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now," Gaga tweeted, explaining her condition, "over the past month it has worsened. I've been praying it would heal."

But it's only gotten worse. And now Mother Monster has nixed the rest of her tour.

According to her Twitter, the original diagnosis was "a case of synovitis, (severe inflammation of joints)." But today, doctors confirmed that Gaga's condition is so serious that it'll require surgery and a long hiatus from the stage.

"After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue," a statement from the pop star's camp reads, "it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip caused by strenuous repetitive movements in her performances."

"She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour, so she can heal."

Sorry, Little Monsters.
