Lady Gaga and her romantic partner of five years, Taylor Kinney, have called it quits. Gaga broke the news on Instagram late Tuesday night, saying the couple has struggled with their long-distance love and “complicated schedules.”
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.
Sounds like Gaga is leaving herself open to the possibility of reconciling down the line. Kinney proposed to Gaga back on Valentine’s Day 2015. She was first seen without her engagement ring last week in Malibu according to TMZ — the same day Taylor celebrated his 35th birthday.
