Lady Gaga has defended Kristen Stewart as her personal life is in the spotlight.
Following the Twilight actress' public apology to boyfriend Robert Pattinson over a "momentary indiscretion", the singer tweeted: "Geez this kirstew rob stuff is brutal."
She added: "Makes me sad the way press acts. Hope they're ok."
Kristen has been at the centre of a furore ever since being pictured in an embrace with the director of her latest film Snow White And The Huntsman who is married with children.
Film maker Rupert Sanders, 41, also issued a statement saying he was "utterly distraught about the pain" he'd caused his family.
Robert has yet to comment although he has reportedly left the LA home he shares with Kristen.
