Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinnley have broken up after being together for five years. That’s some Lord of the rings ish right there.
Distance didn’t make their hearts grow fonder, rather it is being mentioned as one of the things which tore them apart as they both have really busy work schedules.
According to US Weekly, busy schedules and distance caused the couple to spend more time apart than actually together as 30-year-old Gaga lives in Malibu California, and her 35-year-old boyfriend lives in Chicago where he is filming an NBC series, Chicago Fire.
“It’s really sad and [Gaga’s] really torn up. They thought they’d be together forever. Distance was a big part of it,” an insider revealed.
“They weren’t together a lot. They had a good life and a lot in common, but were ultimately too different.”
The insider added, “I know he was always in Chicago and she went there all the time, but really had to be in L.A. or on tour and it was hard for them to make their schedules work. Distance was definitely a big, big issue.”
Gaga and Kinney met in 2011 while she was shooting her music video for “Yoü and I”. He was her love interest in the visuals and several months later, they began dating only to break up in May 2012.
By June of the same year, the pair got back together.
In February 2015, Kinney proposed as Lady Gaga took to her Instagram to share a photo of her heart-shaped diamond rock, “He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!”
They have broken up now. So sad, I was rooting for these two.
