Lady Gaga apologized at the weekend for the call of the sudden death of model Rick Nested a suicide.

In a tweet, the singer said that she “spoke too fast” and not to “signs of an unjust conclusion,” when she spoke her sympathy on Friday for Nested, which is known as ‘Zombie Boy’ and shot to fame when he starred in Gaga’s “Born This Way” music video in 2011. Gaga wrote earlier in a now-deleted tweet that “the suicide of a friend, Rick, Nested, Zombie Boy is terrible.”

“Out of respect for Rick’s family, Rick & his legacy I apologize if I spoke too fast, because there was no witnesses or evidence to support a conclusion for the cause of his death. I in no way meant to draw an unfair conclusion, My deepest condolences to his family and friends,” tweeted Gaga.

LADY GAGA MOURNS ZOMBIE BOY AFTER MODEL DIES AT 32: ‘I AM DEVASTATED’

The canadian-born model was found dead in his apartment in Montreal’s Plateau-Mont-Royal, near the Wednesday. Although the Canadian government found Nested ‘s death as an apparent suicide, the 32-year-old’s family said they think it was an accident, People reported.

“For us, the family and close entourage, we feel that there are too many contradictions surrounding his death ruled as a suicide, and for the people to jump to conclusions that quickly was disappointing,” Nest’s manager, Karim Leduc, told People on Friday. “The balcony from which he fell on the third floor was a very dangerous balcony…It is a balcony which is very small rails/guards — emergency/fire escape balcony and he leaned with his back to it as sitting on the edge of the rail, and he fell with his back on the ground.”

Together with Gaga’s music video, Nested also modeled for several magazines including Vanity Fair and GQ, and took small film roles.
