If there's one celebrity couple we always hoped would get back together and go the distance, it was Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney. They were so adorably in love, and when they broke up, we had questions about why that were never answered. Until now, that is. In her Netflix documentary, Gaga 5'2", which just debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival, Gaga finally reveals what went wrong with her seemingly perfect romance with Kinney.

At the beginning of the film, which gives fans a never-before-seen look into the behind-the-scenes parts of Gaga's life, she reveals in front of the cameras that she and Kinney are having some struggles.

"Me and Taylor are fighting, so that sucks," she says. "My threshold for bullshit with men is just — I don’t have one anymore. In relationships, you have to move together."

Later on, as she's appearing in Bradley Cooper's film A Star Is Born, the breakup happens and she tearfully talks about the effect her career has had on her relationships. "My love life has just imploded," she says. "I sold 10 million [records] and lost Matt. I sold 30 million and lost Luke. I did a movie and lose Taylor. It's like a turnover. This is the third time I’ve had my heart broken like this."
