The pop star finally offered an explanation for what ended her five-year relationship with Kinney — and she seems to think her blossoming career within the entertainment industry was a major factor.
“My love life has just imploded,” Gaga says in a new documentary “Gaga: Five Foot Two,” according to People. “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.” Gaga and Kinney called it quits last year, around the same time she was cast in her first feature film “A Star is Born,” which also stars Bradley Cooper.
The singer had previously not gone into much detail about what caused her separation from Kinney, an actor best known for his leading role in the NBC drama series “Chicago Fire.”
Gaga, 31, announced last July that she and Kinney, 36, had put their romance on hold, but seemed to leave the door open for them to get back together.
“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,” she captioned an Instagram photo of her and Kinney with their arms on each other’s shoulders. “We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared,” she continued. “Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”
Gaga seemed to be referring to Matthew Michael Williams and Luc Carl — both of whom she was romantically linked to in the past — when she addressed her failed romances in the documentary.
In the new project, Gaga also addresses chronic pain that she suffers from without going into specifics. She clarified in a tweet on Tuesday that she pain she experiences is from Fibromyalgia, which is amusculoskeletal condition that can cause pain throughout the body. A person’s mood and level of energy can also be altered due to the illness.
