Taylor Swift no longer has the most devastating celeb breakup of the year.
They were together for five years before their reported breakup, and just last Valentine’s Day, Kinney proposed with a gorgeous heart-shaped engagement ring. They were supposedly hard at work planning their wedding when the breakup occurred. There’s still no news about which party instigated the split, and neither of their reps have returned requests for comment so far.
Just last week, Gaga was spotted in Malibu not wearing her engagement ring, and Kinney wasn’t with her even though it was his birthday — the two have been living noticeably separate lives for some time now, appearing alone at events and not showing up on each other’s social media like they used to. Some outlets are reporting that they actually broke up earlier this month, but kept their split under wraps for as long as possible.
TMZ reports that sources close to the couple have confirmed the breakup.
Kinney and Gaga met in 2011 on the set of her “Yoü And I” music video, and started dating soon after. In the video, Kinney played Gaga’s groom. They shared their first kiss on screen.
Gaga shared their engagement news early last year with a close-up photo of her ring and a description of the symbols Kinney had engraved into the band.
“My favorite part of my engagement ring, Taylor and Lorraine [Schwartz] designed ‘T [hearts] S’ in white diamonds on the band. He always called me by my birth name, [Stefani], Since our very first date,” she wrote. “I’m such a happy bride-to-be! I can’t stop smiling!”
