Lady Gaga took to Instagram to clarify that she and Taylor Kinney are not officially broken up, but “taking a break” from their relationship.
Us Weekly confirmed on Tuesday that Lady Gaga, 30, and Kinney, 35, were calling it quits on their five-year relationship. The couple dated for four years before becoming engaged on Valentine’s Day in 2015. Lady Gaga broke her silence on their relationship status by posting a photo of she and Kinney walking together on Instagram.
“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,” the caption reads.
Lady Gaga and Kinney met on the set of her music video for “You And I.” The couple was last publicly seen together in March at Operation Smile’s 5th Annual Park City Celebrity Ski & Smile Challenge in Park City, Utah.
