How did we manage to miss this huge moment before the 2019 Oscars? According to Us Weekly, Lady Gaga and Christian Carino ran into each other before the 2019 Academy Awards. For those who aren’t aware of the news, Gaga and Carino recently called off their engagement and subsequently broke up, as the singer’s rep confirmed to People on Tuesday. Given this, the fact that the two reportedly bumped into one another at a pre-Oscars party is definitely something we need to unpack. Here’s what reportedly happened.
A source informed Us Weekly that Gaga and Carino spoke at CAA’s pre-Oscars bash on Friday, three days after their split made headlines. Per the Us source, “Christian Carino walked into the party […][and] said hi to Gaga at one point. But it was brief and then he went to another room.”
The insider also dished that Gaga and her Star Is Born costar Bradley Cooper reportedly spent most of the evening together — they were seen “in a corner together all night.” Per Cooper and Gaga, the source said, “They looked so close, they almost seem like a couple.”
That said, the costars are not a couple, as Cooper has been with Irina Shayk since 2015. The couple also has a daughter, Lea, together. Oh, and speaking of Shayk, she also attended the 2019 Oscars with Cooper. The two seem very happy together, so it’s best to stop the speculation and wishes involving a Gaga-Cooper romance.
As for Gaga, who took home her first Oscar for best original song at Sunday night’s award show for “Shallow” from A Star Is Born, her split with Carino reportedly came with zero drama. At the time of People’s split report, a source told the publication, “It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end. There’s no long dramatic story.” Neither Gaga nor Carino have directly commented on the breakup reports, which first originated at the 2019 Grammys when Gaga showed up minus her engagement ring.
Based on Us Weekly’s report, it seems like the former couple remains on civil terms. Plus, Gaga seemed to be truly enjoying herself at the Oscars, especially when she won. Her night was certainly a memorable one, and hopefully, she was able to celebrate without a care in the world.
