Lady Gaga has asked her fans to support her and her fiancé Taylor Kinney, after revealing they are “taking a break” from their romance.
The singer and actress says they were having trouble connecting due to the “long-distance and complicated schedules” that keep them apart.
The Pokerface hitmaker, 30, got engaged to the hot Chicago Fire star, 35, in February 2015.
Captioning a picture of the pair of them on Instagram, she wrote: “Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”
A source previously said of the couple: “Their work kept them apart a lot. Chicago Fire keeps him in Chicago and her work is almost always elsewhere.”
But the distance isn’t something new to them as Gaga recently opened up about how tough it is to be apart.
She said: “We don’t have any rules about calling each other at certain times … We’ll go days at a time without talking and then we’ll talk every day. He’s on his journey and I’m on mine and we’re gypsies. And then when we’re together, we’re really in love and that’s it.”
Before announcing their “break”, the pair had been busy planning their wedding.
