UPDATE: Lady Gaga took to Instagram to address the status of her relationship with Taylor Kinney.
With a black and white photo of the couple walking together, the singer writes: “Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. 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. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”
Many fans’ hearts broke earlier today upon the news of Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney’s engagement being called off it seems like the famous pair aren’t absolutely, completely, for sure, done.
“She’s working on an album, he’s working on his show, they aren’t in the same state, it was just hard,” the insider said.
“They both love each other very much and they want it to work. It’s just been tough with the long distance.”
T was speculation on the status of the couple’s relationship after Gaga was spotted without her ring on.
Neither Gaga nor Kinney has commented on the matter, and it’s unclear who initiated taking the time off.
The former pair began dating in 2011 after meeting on the set of Gaga’s “Yoü and I” music video, and it didn’t take long before the public witnessed their magical connection.
“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,” Gaga told Fashion magazine in 2013.
