Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney have split after five years together. Gossip Cop confirms that the former couple has called off their engagement.
The singer and actor reportedly broke up earlier this month, but the news wasn’t revealed until Tuesday. As Gossip Cop reported, Gaga and Kinney got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2015. She then posted a picture of her diamond ring and wrote, “He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!” Kinney also posted a photo, with the caption reading,“She said YES on Valentine’s Day.”
In 2013, Gaga explained her relationship to Ellen DeGeneres about then boyfriend Kinney. She said, “He’s a hidden weirdo,” adding, “He is extremely strange, actually. And we complement each other’s weirdness.” Before the couple got engaged, Lady Gaga had said in an interview, “It has been hard for me to find it, but I have found love. When you meet someone that’s not intimidated by the amazing people that are around you [or] by the love that you receive — that’s love.”
Memorably, when Lady Gaga won a Golden Globe award this year for Best Supporting Actress for her role on “American Horror Story: Hotel,” she thanked everyone in the cast and crew, but noticeably didn’t mention Kinney, who watched on from their table. Of course, the omission of his name was nothing more than a mistake.
However, there have been recent signs as of trouble as the two haven’t been seen together much in the past couple of weeks. Last week in Malibu, Gaga was spotted without her engagement ring on the same day as Kinney’s 35th birthday. The singer has also been active on Instagram, but Kinney has been noticeably absent from many of her recent photos.
