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.
