Earlier today, we told you Lady Gaga had been forced to cancel several dates on her Born This Way Ball tour due to injury -- and now it looks like things are even worse than anyone suspected.

A statement on her website reads:

Live Nation Global Touring has confirmed that the remainder of the Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball performances have been cancelled.

After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip. 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.

Refunds for the cancelled performances will be available at point of purchase starting Feb 14, 2013.

No word from Gaga herself yet, but as distraught and apologetic as she was about having to cancel just a few concerts, it's a safe bet she's beside herself now that the entire tour has been scrapped. She may have her detractors, but no one can dispute she works her ass off and loves her fans.

We'll keep you updated as more news comes in.
