Many criticized Girl G on the time for not shelling out the cash for his therapeutic journey and medical payments when she is virtually price tens of millions. However he claimed that was by no means the case:
“She’s helped me a lot. She’s been a good friend for me. And after I used to be attacked, my household was flown out and had trauma therapists flown to me, and I stayed at her home for months whereas buddies comforted me and safety was round me.”

And so, I do know that doesn’t make sense to lots of people, however she completely will get it.”
Nevertheless, co-host Nate Burleson nonetheless remained skeptical following the interview:
“I’ve met Gaga on a few events. She’s an exquisite girl. So this query isn’t an assault at Gaga. But when she’s price $300+ million, why would he want help from a GoFundMe? Why isn’t she funding his religious journey? Why isn’t he on an annual wage as a result of he sacrificed his life for these canine?”
To which King then clarified:
“That is the factor, Nate, she’s paid for all of his medical payments, he lived in her home, she has trauma therapists. He doesn’t need it. That’s the underside line. He doesn’t need it. He desires to go on this journey. He desires to do it himself. … The very last thing [Fischer] desires is for folks to really feel Gaga’s let him down as a result of she’s nonetheless supporting him in any method he wants. That is what he desires to do.”
