Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney are no longer engaged as they have decided to end their five-year relationship and that there was no cheating involved that led to the break-up.
The two began dating back in 2011 when they met on the set of the music video for the singer’s hit song “You and I.” The break-up reports came months after rumors started swirling that the two were no longer together. An insider said that the two have not confirmed or denied the reports yet as 35-year-old Kinney and 30-year-old Lady Gaga want to keep thins private.
Lady Gaga was spotted last week mot wearing her ring. During that time, she was photographed out and about during Kinney’s birthday. She also was photographed sans the engagement ring when she performed at an orphanage in Mexico this week. It remains unclear who initiated the break-up and what the cause is.
Reports have surfaced, however, saying that it was not due to infidelity but the fact that the passion was no longer there. An insider shared, “Nobody cheated. Their relationship was pretty strong and it worked out pretty well and then they got engaged. Things pretty much ended there, they were OK with the distance their relationship provided from time to time.”
According to other reports, the two have broken up early July. However, before the reports about the split broke, the two have not been seen together for a while.
In an interview with Fashion magazine back in 2013, Lady Gaga shared about being in a relationship with Kinney. She shared, “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. Men weren't always happy for me. It was very challenging to watch a woman be so successful.”
Lady Gaga also said in a 2014 interview with SiriusXM that she cannot imagine being with another man than with Kinney noting that he is the right guy for her. Kinney proposed to Lady Gaga on Valentine’s Day 2015.
It seems that not being together for a long time contributed to the split. Lady Gaga has been spending summer and fall filming for “American Horror Story: Hotel” while Kinney has also been busy with “Chicago P.D.” and “Chicago Med.” Although they have talked about wedding plans, they did say that they do not have a date yet for their marriage.
The two are yet to comment.
