Lady Gaga spends fortune on rent

LADY Gaga is splashing out $25,000 a month to rent a house.

The 'Paparazzi' singer is renting a $5 million mansion in the affluent Bel Air neighbourhood of Los Angeles.

According to reports, the multi-bedroom property comes with one acre of grounds, a huge swimming pool and boasts stunning views across Hollywood and the Pacific Ocean.

But with Gaga - who recently rekindled her relationship with ex-boyfriend Luc Carl - on tour until April 2011, the house will be sitting empty for some time.

However, the rent should not be a problem for the eccentric singer as it was revealed last month a fan paid her $1 million to appear in her latest music video.

A Russian billionaire, known only as Arkady, gave the 24-year-old pop singer the huge sum to star alongside her in the nine-minute promo for 'Alejandro'.

The wealthy admirer can be spotted in the video playing a cop dressed in a black leather hat and coat.
