How Many Times Has Lady Gaga Been Engaged?

Lady Gaga is one of the world’s biggest stars, a musician, singer, and actor who also plays multiple instruments. She first rose to fame in the early 2000s and quickly made a name for herself due to the outrageous costumes that she would wear to red carpet events.

These days, Lady Gaga’s style is a bit more understated, although she has never lost her unique flair for drama. Fans of the star love her way with lyrics, and the way that she lends her time to charitable causes — and many of them remain dedicated to learning everything that they can about her personal life and love interests over the years.

While Lady Gaga has been engaged several times, she has never actually made it down the aisle. Her first engagement was to Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney. The two met when Lady Gaga was a newly minted star, and he was cast in the music video for her song “You and I.” They started dating in 2011 and got engaged in 2015 — but ultimately, Lady Gaga and the actor split in 2016. 

Lady Gaga later admitted that it was her career that contributed to their breakup, and although she insisted that the two remained good friends, she was honest about the pain that the split caused her: “I did a movie and lost Taylor. This is the third time I’ve had my heart broken like this.” Still, she was able to move on quickly, and by the following year, she was already in a steady relationship with another man. 

Lady Gaga’s second engagement was short-lived

In 2017, Lady Gaga started dating Hollywood agent Christian Carino. The two got engaged that same year, with the agent presenting Lady Gaga with a stunning pink sapphire and diamond ring. However, the astronomical success that Lady Gaga was experiencing in her career apparently didn’t translate to her personal life.

In 2019, the singer and Carino decided to not only end their engagement but to split up for good. It was widely rumored that Lady Gaga’s friendship with her A Star is Born co-star Bradley Cooper had something to do with her breakup, but the two have remained consistent in their story that they are just good friends. 

Following her split from Carino, Lady Gaga had a brief fling with Dan Horton, an audio engineer who had worked for Lady Gaga on several projects. It was short-lived, however, and in October 2019, the singer posted on Instagram that she was most definitely “a single lady.” 

Who is Lady Gaga dating these days?

As it turned out, Lady Gaga wouldn’t be a single girl for long. In December 2019, only two months after proclaiming her single status on social media, she was seen with a man who was later identified as Michael Polansky, a Harvard University graduate and the head of the Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy. A learned man who enjoys staying out of the spotlight, Polansky has proven to be an ideal match for Lady Gaga. He’s been seen at her side at several high-profile events and the singer has even shared cute snapshots of the two of them to social media.

These days, Lady Gaga and Michael Polansky are still going strong — although no engagement news has yet been shared. It could be that after two failed engagements, Lady Gaga is trying to take things a bit slower this time around. Still, after nearly two years together, fans could be looking forward to an exciting year ahead, with a possible engagement between the iconic singer and her low-key boyfriend.
