Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney have split up after five years together, and almost a year and a half engaged.

Friends of the couple have confirmed that the pair went their separate ways earlier this month, but it’s not yet known who decided to end their relationship.

The split kind of makes sense, seeing as the couple hadn’t been spotted together recently, and neither have shared photos of each other on their social media for over a month.

Taylor proposed to Lady Gaga on Valentine’s Day 2015 with that infamous heart shaped ring, but they’d never announced a wedding date.

He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!

Just before the proposal last year, Lady Gaga told Howard Stern:  “I really can’t imagine being with anyone other than who I’m with right now. He is the right guy. I have that feeling. I just know it.”

Sources close to the pair claim that their conflicting work schedules are to blame for the split.

A source told People: “Their work kept them apart a lot. ‘Chicago Fire’ keeps him in Chicago and her work is almost always elsewhere.”

Lady Gaga had previously revealed how the couple kept their long-distance romance alive.

“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.”

Lady Gaga is currently on holiday in Cabo with friends, sans engagement ring.

Well we guess distance didn’t make the heart grow fonder in this case…
