Late last night, Lady Gaga's dog walker was shot and her beloved bulldogs were kidnapped by thieves.

According to TMZ, Gaga's dog walker had taken the bulldogs out for a walk in Hollywood just before 10 p.m. local time when he was approached by an assailant or multiple assailants. Details are unclear, but we do know that the dog walker was shot and the gunman left with two of the three dogs. 

Initially, TMZ reported that only two dogs had been out for the walk with one taken, but law enforcement confirmed that there were three dogs in total. Gaga's dogs that were kidnapped are named Koji and Gustav, while a third ran away from the scene and was later recovered.

Lady Gaga has offered a $500,000 USD reward for the return of her dogs, "no questions asked." According to TMZ, whoever has the dogs can write to to retrieve the reward.

The dog walker is currently in hospital and expected to make a full recovery. 

Because French bulldogs are an expensive, in-demand breed, it's unclear whether the kidnapper knew they belonged to Lady Gaga or if they just stole them because they were expensive.

As of press time, no arrests have been made.
