Lady Gaga has confirmed that she and fiance Taylor Kinney are “taking a break.” The pop star announced the news on her Instagram account late last night (July 19).
“Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates,” Gaga wrote in a caption of a photo of the two arm in arm. “Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break.”
She added that she and Kinney have been working through busy schedules and long distance in hopes that their love will move on past these struggles.
“We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared,” she adds. “Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”
Gaga and Kinney have been together for five years and became engaged on Valentine’s Day of last year.
