But the one thing that turned Gaga into a global conversation topic in 2019 wasn’t her Oscar performance with Bradley Cooper or her hilarious tattoo typo. Instead it was the sad news that she had split from her fiancé Christian Carino.
There had been speculation that the engagement had been called off after the singer was spotted at the Grammys without her sparkler. The break up was then confirmed by Lady Gaga’s reps back in March, who told PEOPLE: ‘It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end. There’s no long dramatic story.’
And while there was speculation from Christian Carino’s jealousy to Lady Gaga’s closeness with Jeremy Renner, Gaga remained tight-lipped about the subject, only breaking her silence on the split this week.
According to Us Weekly, the break up was mentioned briefly by the singer before she performed ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’, as the 33-year-old announced, ‘Last time I sang this song, I had a ring on my finger, so it’ll be different this time’.
‘[She] couldn’t risk jeopardizing her career in that way, over a man, and that’s not something she would stand for,’ an insider reportedly explained of the split.
