Lady Gaga is reportedly single again after splitting from her boyfriend Taylor Kinney.
The superstar singer has been throwing herself into the launch of her new album ARTPOP – and it seems her hectic work schedule has been causing problems in her personal life.
While she was able to spend quailty time with Taylor at the start of 2013 while she recovered from hip surgery, now she is back on the music scene their two-year romance is suffering.
“Gaga’s hoping to meet up with Taylor when their schedules allow to talk things through,” a source has told the Sun. “Taylor told her they need some time apart and it’s looking as if this might lead to a permanent split.
“Taylor has told her she’s married to her career and he can’t deal with dating Gaga the megastar and all her obsessions and alter-egos.”
The insider also said that the 32-year-old actor loves being around the talented musician when she is being low-key, and not in full-on performer mode.
“He loves the cool down-to-earth girl but hardly gets to see her. Gaga never stops working – she writes songs in the shower and dreams up new outfits in her sleep.”
Chicago Fire star Taylor, 32, is said to be particularly frustrated by the fact that the singer is constantly surrounded by assistants and a heavy security team, making it almost impossible for them to spend any alone time together.
Lady Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – hinted she might be having trouble balancing her incredibly successful career with a steady relationship in a series of tweets she posted about her new song, I Wanna Be With You, back in September.
“#iwannabewithu is also about following my dreams but falling in love at the same time,” she wrote. “Wish I could have both, but I can’t on the road.”
Despite the claims, the couple do seem to be trying to make things work. Taylor was reportedly seen at the YouTube Music Awards on Sunday, where Lady Gaga gave an emotional performance of her new song, Dope.
