The Italian fashion designer hit back at the 'Living For Love' hitmaker after she claimed the ''heavy'' cape he designed was partially responsible for her falling off the stage at the BRIT Awards last Wednesday (25.02.15), but he insists it was her own fault.
Asked about the accident, the 80-year-old couturier told PEOPLE.com: ''Madonna, as we know, is very difficult. This cape had a hook and she wanted a tie, and she wasn't able to open it with her hands. That's all there is to it.''
The 56-year-old singer got ''a little whiplash'' when she was pulled down a small flight of stairs by a dancer who was attempting to remove the huge cape during her performance at the ceremony in London, and claimed her ensemble was to blame.
She late said: ''Everybody was worried that my cape was going to slide off because it's quite heavy, so they tied it really tight around my neck. So here I am marching in like a queen, and I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled my silky string, and it would not come undone. And my two lovely Japanese dancers basically strangled me off the stage. I had a choice: I could either be strangled or fall with the cape, and I fell.''
Despite the fall - during which the audience heard a loud thud as she toppled down the stairs and dropped her microphone - the 'Hung Up' hitmaker managed to continue with her performance.
She added: ''It was a nightmare, I like to be amazing, I rehearse and rehearse so when I do a show it is effortless and I create magic. I did the opposite, I actually created a horror show for everyone.''
