Let’s Play a Love Game! Inside Lady Gaga’s Dating History — Taylor Kinney, Christian Carino and More

*Cue “Bad Romance.”* Since entering the spotlight in 2008, Lady Gaga has been in a handful of public relationships. Most notably, the New York City native, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, was engaged twice.

Gaga dated actor Taylor Kinney from 2011 to 2016. The pair was together for four years before getting engaged in February 2016. However, five months later they called it quits. “Me and Taylor are fighting, so that sucks,” the Grammy Award-winner revealed her 2017 documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two. “My threshold for bulls–t with men is just … I don’t have one anymore. In relationships, you have to move together.”

By January 2017, Gaga sparked dating rumors with talent agent Christian Carino. In October 2018, the “Paparazzi” artist confirmed the couple’s engagement. Come February 2019, they split.

“She was devastated at first,” a source told Us Weekly at the time, before revealing that Christian’s personality “infringed on her creative process.” According to the insider, Gaga “couldn’t risk jeopardizing her career in that way — over a man — and that’s not something she would stand for.”

The House of Gucci actress has addressed the unfortunate pattern in all of her romantic relationships as it relates to her career. “It’s a sad day when I’m doing the Super Bowl and I’m so excited to do it, but I can’t help but realize that when I sold 10 million records, I lost Matt [Williams],” she explained in Gaga: Five Foot Two. “I sold 30 million, I lose Luc [Carl]. I get the movie [A Star Is Born], I lose Taylor. It’s like a turnover.”

Thankfully, the Hollywood icon has met her match in boyfriend Michael Polansky. “Gaga is telling everyone that he’s a keeper,” a source dished to Life & Style in February 2020. “She doesn’t want to jinx anything, but she thinks she’s found her Mr. Right.”

Since then, the lovebirds are going strong! Gaga even shared a sweet photo of the couple attending the United States Presidential Inauguration in January 2021.
