Will she ever love again? Lady Gaga thought she’d found the real deal with fiancé Christian Carino, but the two officially ended their engagement after two years together and are going their separate ways. The split was confirmed to JustJared and is breaking the hearts of her fans who had been speculating for a while that all was not well. Right before Valentine’s Day, the singer’s little monsters couldn’t help but notice that both her fiancé and her engagement ring were missing when she took the stage to accept her award at the Grammys.
“So, Gaga and Christian broke up, right? There’s no other explanation,” wrote one fan after noticing that the singer seemed to be flying solo at the show. “OMFG I’m gonna have a breakdown if Gaga broke off another engagement,” commented another. “She deserves a man who will stick by her for decade after decade.” It seems like that man won’t be Christian, 50, who also wasn’t honored with a mention by Gaga, 32, in her acceptance speech. The star thanked plenty of people, including her family and her A Star Is Born co-star/director, Bradley Cooper — but her now-former fiancé wasn’t one of them.
As for how long the couple has been separated, it’s hard to say. Rumors swirled that the couple had started dating and gotten engaged for months before they confirmed the news in February 2017 and October 2018 respectively. In fact, In Touch reported in November 2017 that the CAA agent had asked the songstress to marry him, but Lady Gaga only confirmed the news in October 2018 when she called Christian her fiancé while speaking at Elle‘s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration. It’s possible that, while they are confirming their split now, that they’ve been separated for a while.
In January 2019, reports circulated that Lady Gaga “seemed off” at a Golden Globes afterparty. At the time, her mood was attributed to the fact that ASIB hadn’t snagged a win — but in hindsight it seems possible that it could also have been related to drama with her man who attended the awards at her side. On Valentine’s Day, the “Bad Romance” star made no mention of Christian, instead showing off new tattoos. We don’t know yet exactly what went wrong between the two, but it seems that the agent simply didn’t give her a good reason to stay.
