AceShowbiz - Was Christian Carino cheating on Lady GaGa? Before a representative for the 32-year-old singer/actress confirmed that she and her fiance have ended their engagement, the CAA agent was caught getting cozy with another woman last week.
According to Radar Online which first reported Carino's alleged date with the mystery woman, the outing took place in West Hollywood on February 8, two days before the "Poker Face" songstress ditched her engagement ring and attended the 2018 Grammy Awards solo. The 50-year-old talent agent was reportedly caught holding hands with the stunning brunette.
"Christian was sitting in the Sunset Tower restaurant on Friday night with a pretty brunette," an eyewitness told the site of the supposed date. "They were holding hands and it looked like a romantic date."
GaGa's rep confirmed the couple's breakup four months after she called Carino her "fiance" during a speech at Elle magazine's 25th annual Women in Hollywood Celebration in October 2018. They started dating in February 2017.
Their friends were reportedly not surprised by the couple's split. A source close to Carino tells PEOPLE, "Their friends knew they weren't going to work out in the long run. It always seemed Christian was more into the relationship than GaGa was."
Another insider says, "It just didn't work out. Relationships sometimes end. There's no long dramatic story," adding that the two split "a bit ago."
GaGa herself previously admitted that her personal life suffered from a major loss every time she experienced a success in her career. "It's a sad day when I'm doing the Super Bowl and I'm so excited to do it, but I can't help but realize that when I sold 10 million records, I lost Matt [Williams]. I sold 30 million, I lose Luc [Carl]. I get the movie ['A Star Is Born'], I lose Taylor [Kinney]," the Oscar-nominated actress opened up in her 2017's Netflix documentary "Gaga: Five Foot Two". She added, "It's like a turnover."
GaGa was in a long on-and-off relationship with actor Taylor Kinney from 2011. They got engaged in February 2015, but called it quits in 2016.
