It's a somber week for Lady Gaga – and her Little Monsters.
Following Tuesday's Facebook announcement that she was "devastated and sad" because she couldn't walk and had to postpone several Born This Way Ball concerts, the pop star, 26, has officially canceled the remaining dates of her world tour.
"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," the singer's rep told PEOPLE Wednesday in a statement. "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."

He was just lending his hand to a worthy cause.
But country star David Nail left Saturday's City of Hope celebrity softball game, which raises money for the cancer institute, with a broken finger.
"Gonna be one handed for a while!" he Tweeted post-game, following a trip to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center – he thanked the "Vandy ER" in his Tweet – where the singer-guitarist's right hand was treated.

"It's all good," the injured Extra host, 33, told PEOPLE following her 25-point quickstep with partner Derek Hough Monday night.
Adds the pro, with a laugh: "So, basically, smooth sailing."

The Oscars will be a little less glamorous this year.
Halle Berry, who was set to present at the 84th annual Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, has canceled her appearance because of her broken foot, PEOPLE has learned.
Berry injured herself while shooting Cloud Atlas in Spain in September. According to the movie's studio, Warner Bros., the accident occurred while "walking in Majorca on a day off from filming."
But it turns out there was a little more to the story. A source told PEOPLE at the time that Berry was chasing after her 3½-year-old daughter Nahla, who was chasing after a goat across a stretch of rocky countryside.
Berry will be missed – but at least she has the perfect scapegoat!
