The “A Star Is Born” actress and her fiancé, Christian Carino, have called off their engagement, ending their relationship after nearly two years together.
The couple seems to have simply broken up, a source confirmed to People magazine USA , noting that “it just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end.” “There’s no long dramatic story,” the source added.
Speculation that the couple broke up began when fans noticed that Gaga, 32, was not wearing her engagement ring at the Grammy Awards on February 10. Gaga also did not thank Carino in her acceptance speech after her song “Shallow” won the best pop duo or group performance prize. Notably, Carino wasn’t her date at the Grammys, even though he had accompanied her to other events this awards season, including the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Golden Globes, as she made the rounds accepting trophies for A Star Is Born. On Valentine’s Day, instead of sharing photos with her fiancé, Gaga debuted a large tattoo on her spine that pays tribute to her role in the acclaimed musical-drama.
The Oscar nominee was previously engaged to Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney, whom she romanced for five years, before they called it quits in July 2016. Carino, meanwhile, was married to newscaster Brooke Baldwin, with whom he shares daughter Bella, from 1997 to 2015.
