Lady Gaga calls off her engagement to fiance Christian Carino after two years together
The 'Poker Face' singer and Carino confirmed their engagement when Gaga referred to the talent agent as her “fiancé” at the 25th annual Elle Women in Hollywood event last year
It's over even before you got word of it. Lady Gaga has reportedly called off her engagement to fiance Christian Carino after being two years together. The report was later confirmed by the 'A Star Is Born' actress' representative on Tuesday.
A source later told People, “It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end,” adding that the pair split “a bit ago.” The same insider also explained, “There’s no long dramatic story.”
The couple's fans had started speculating that the relationship was in trouble when Lady Gaga showed up to the Grammys without Carino and her engagement ring.
The pink rock was also missing when she brought costar Bradley Cooper up on stage to perform 'Shallow' during her Enigma residency in Las Vegas in late January, but it did make an appearance once again when the singer attended the Oscar nominees luncheon on February 4.
Another red flag for the couple's relationship was Gaga's V-Day post, where instead of mentioning Carino, the songstress revealed that she’d had a permanent piece of 'A Star Is Born' inked on her body. The 'Born This Way' singer got inked on her spine, paying tribute to her role in the acclaimed musical-drama.
“Happy Valentine’s Day. A tattoo toast to “la vie en rose” by the beautiful @winterstone my spinal cord is now a rose,” Gaga wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the completed tattoo, which features an intricate single rose on a long stem with the words, “la vie en rose” written beside it.
Carino was last seen attending the Golden Globes with Gaga earlier this year, where the singer managed to win the best song award for 'Shallow' from the Oscar-nominated flick. After the show, he posted a black-and-white picture of Gaga laying in bed, eating Fruity Pebbles while holding her trophy, captioning it: “What a rager.”
Though no official date was announced, the 'Poker Face' singer and Carino confirmed their engagement when Gaga referred to the talent agent as her “fiancé” at the 25th annual Elle Women in Hollywood event in October 2018.
“Thank you to all the loved ones in my life,” she gushed at the time. “[Manager] Bobby [Campbell], I love you. Everyone at table five. My fiancé, Christian. All the loved ones in my life who take care of me every day.”
The couple first sparked rumors of their relationship when they were spotted kissing ahead of her Super Bowl LI halftime show performance in Houston.
Gaga was previously engaged to 'Chicago Fire' actor Taylor Kinney, who she broke up with in 2016, while Carino was married to newscaster Brooke Baldwin, with whom he shares daughter Bella.
