One source told People there isn’t one specific reason for the ending of Lady Gaga and Christian Carino’s relationship. “It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end. There’s no long dramatic story,” the source told People. “They just weren’t going to work out in the long run.”

This might be the real reason Lady Gaga and Christian Carino broke up

Bradley Cooper might not necessarily be why Carino and Lady Gaga broke up. It’s possible the singer is just addicted to the high of falling in love and experiencing the passion that comes with the early days of a romantic relationship. As we noted earlier, she has been engaged for a short period before. Another possibility is the combination of her hectic work schedule and sudden success.

Lady Gaga said in her 2017 documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two that her other relationships likely dissolved because of crazy work schedules and power dynamics. According to her, the men she was involved with were intimidated by her success. Here’s what she said in the documentary:

My love life has just imploded. 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.
