Lady Gaga & Christian Carino were ‘not going to work out in the long run’

76th Annual Golden Globe Awards - 2019 Backstage

I know people are more interested in the messiness of Miranda Lambert and Khloe Kardashian, but I really do think it’s weird that Lady Gaga broke off her engagement to Christian Carino in the middle of the awards season. I mean, the confirmation came less than a week before the Oscars, but the rumors of a breakup began circulating right after the Grammys. It does feel sudden, and like there’s possibly more to the story. Some of you mentioned hearing a rumor that he cheated and Gaga dumped him. That’s one possibility, I guess. Another possibility is that she was just totally over it and only realized it recently?

Lady Gaga and Christian Carino quickly became serious after they became an item in early 2017, but friends were skeptical about the longevity of their romance from the start.

“Their friends knew they weren’t going to work out in the long run,” says a source close to the CAA agent. “It always seemed Christian was more into the relationship than Gaga was.”

After Gaga, 32, attended the Grammys solo and without her engagement ring on Feb. 10, rumors flew that the engaged couple had called it quits. The entertainer’s rep confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE on Tuesday they had split.

He was more into her? I believe that. That’s the way it looked in photos too. But that’s not a good enough reason to dump someone in the middle of the awards season! Maybe I’m being too speculative – when you’re a gossip hammer, everything looks like a gossip nail. Maybe it was a completely mature split and Gaga didn’t want to pretend for even one second longer. I wonder who she’ll bring as her date to the Oscars? My guess is her mom and dad.

    “gossip hammer” /snicker but very descriptive.

  2. Rice says:

    Maybe he was too greasy for her and she wanted an upgrade. Mama Monster is rolling in different circles now and she needs someone who matches her new status.

    I never thought they were a love for the ages.

  4. Winnie Cooper's Mom says:

    I feel a little sad for Gaga. She has so much success but seems lonely. I remember reading a quote from Nicole Kidman back in the pre-Keith days when she won an Oscar and she went back to her room and realized she was really alone. I feel that for Gaga and want her to find happiness with the right person for her.

    He could never compare to Bradley.

  6. T says:

    My guess is Bradley and Gaga go to the Oscars together – not in a romantic way, but as costars and friends.

  7. Yes Doubtful says:

    She was his obsession and he was her rebound.

  8. Some chick says:

    The feeling I get is that she really just doesn’t appreciate being told what to do. As her manager, he felt that was his right/job.

    But actual relationships are more complex than that. Seems like he perhaps forgot it wasn’t the “Christian Carino Show.”

    Also: workplace romances rarely work out.

    She’s talented and smart. Hopefully she’ll find a suitable partner before long.
