UPDATED 20/07/16: While we're all still trying to process the fact that Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney have split, Gaga's shared a photo of her and Tay on her insta and our hearts are actually breaking RN.
The post reads:
"Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates." Us too bbz.
"Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared."
She goes on to ask fans to, "Please root us on. We're just like everybody else and we really love each other."
Gaga's rep has also gone and released a statement to People which gives us at least a few more answers.
The statement says that the couple are currently 'on a break' with sources confirming that their hectic work lives are getting in the way of their relationship, with no sign of their careers slowing down in the near future. Another reason work is just the goddamn worst.
The source goes on to say, “She’s working on an album, he’s working on his show, they aren’t in the same state, it was just hard,” the source said. “They both love each other very much and they want it to work. It’s just been tough with the long distance.”
ORIGINAL STORY 19/07/16: Lady Gaga and her babin’ actor fiancé Taylor Kinney have called it quits, TMZ reports.
An insider confirmed the couple are no more after TMZ published photos of Gaga on holiday in Mexico with no sign of her engagement ring. The other telling sign was the fact Gaga was on vacation without her fiance on his birthday – not exactly the behavior of a couple in love.
Gaga and the Chicago Fire star had been together for five years after meeting on the set of the music video for her song "You And I", with Taylor popping the question on Valentine’s Day last year.
With Gaga working on her next album right now, the chances of her releasing a break-up song or two just increased significantly. RIP, Gaga and Taylor’s love.
