Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney ‘Taking A Break’ After Five Years
UPDATE (July 20): Lady Gaga spoke out about her relationship with Taylor on her Instagram.
"Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break," she explains. "Please root us on. We're just like everybody else and we really love each other."
See her full statement below.
An "industry source" told People that the split came about because their careers kept them apart: "Chicago Fire keeps him in Chicago and her work is almost always elsewhere," the source told the outlet.
TMZ first broke the story earlier today, claiming that the couple broke up earlier this month: "No word on who pulled the plug. Gaga and Kinney have been noticeably absent from each other's lives lately...at events and on social media. Gaga was seen without her engagement ring last week in Malibu -- the same day Taylor celebrated his 35th birthday. She's in Cabo right now...without a ring."
The couple got engaged on Valentine's Day last year.
“He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!” she wrote on Instagram at the time.
“I just knew. It wasn’t a lightbulb going off," Kinney told the Chicago Tribune regarding the proposal. “It was in Manhattan. It was snowing, it was beautiful.”
The two were spotted together for the first time back in 2011.
JustJared has reached out for a comment from their reps, but no word back yet.
