Well, it’s official:Lady Gaga and Christian Carino are no longer engaged.
Gaga’s rep confirmed the split to E! News.
On Thursday, one source told E! News that the couple had split and he was “desperately trying to get back together” with the singer. However, two other sources told us that they were still together.
The A Star Is Born actress and Carino sparked split rumors last week at the Grammys. He didn’t attend the awards ceremony, where she took home three Grammys, including Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her song “Shallow” with Bradley Cooper. Not only was Carino not there, but so was Gaga’s massive pink sapphire $400,000 engagement ring.
Another source gave a bit of background as to why she went without the pink sparkler on her ring finger. “She just wasn’t wearing her ring due to performing,” the insider said. “They have put all their wedding plans on hold until after Gaga’s busy season, but still plan to get married this year.”
The Joanne artist didn’t mention him during her thank you speech and instead used it as a platform to speak out about mental health.
Another source told E! News that their relationship “just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end.”
They added, “It’s not a long dramatic story.”
Just weeks before confirming their split, Gaga and Carino showed lots of PDA and love at various awards shows, including the Golden Globes and SAG Awards
The 32-year-old singer was living her best life and having the time of her life at the SAG Awards on Jan. 27, where they kissed in photos and he conversed with some of her A Star Is Born co-stars, including Sam Elliott.
Gaga has a large presence on Carino’s Instagram page, too. In fact, she’s the majority of his pictures. On Feb. 5, he took a picture of her throwing a coin into a fountain and wrote, “‘beneath the makeup and behind the smile i am just a girl who wishes for the world.’ marilyn monroe”
He also uploaded a photo of her at her Enigma show in Las Vegas and captioned it “sunshine.”
Gaga confirmed her engagement to Carino in October, just under one year after they first sparked engagement speculation. She thanked her “fiancé Christian” during her speech at Elle‘s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration.
The singer was also engaged to Taylor Kinney before splitting up in July 2016.
