Lady Gaga not banned from Yankee Stadium after all

Gaga2_300 Gaga_300 Lady Gaga is a lifelong New York Yankees fan. That feeling may not be mutual after the outlandish pop star's antics at Yankee Stadium on Friday night.

After talking her way past security and into the Yankees' clubhouse after the team's loss to the New York Mets, Lady Gaga reportedly drank whiskey while wearing a bikini bottom and a pinstriped jersey that was unbuttoned to reveal her bra. Several Yankees, including Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez, visited with her.

The New York Post reported Sunday that Yankees Co-Chairman Hal Steinbrenner reacted by permanently barring her from the locker room.

But Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman said Sunday: "She's not banned.

"That was the wrong time and the wrong place. It's been taken care of."

Cashman added it was "not her fault."

About two weeks ago, Lady Gaga was photographed making an obscene gesture during a Mets home game at Citi Field.
