Lady Gaga and Christian Carino's story has come to an end. After garnering critical acclaim for her first major film role in A Star Is Born, the "Applause" singer announced her engagement to Christian Carino back in October. Today, however, a rep for the singer confirmed to People that the couple has called off their engagement and split.
Back in 2018, rumours swirled for months that Gaga and Carino — a talent agent at CAA — were planning on getting hitched. However, the former American Horror Story star only confirmed their status during her speech at Monday's Elle Women in Hollywood event.
"Thank you to all the loved ones in my life," Gaga said at the event. "Everyone at table five. My fiancé, Christian. All the loved ones in my life who take care of me every day."
Since Gaga and Carino keep their relationship fairly low-key, you might not know much about the agent, whom Gaga was first spotted out with early in 2017. Here’s how it all went down, with a timeline of the couple's relationship — from beginning to end.
When one door closes, another opens. In July of 2016, it was announced that Gaga and her Chicago Fire beau, Taylor Kinney, had called it quits, despite getting engaged in 2015.
The talent agent — who represents his lady as well as Kiernan Shipka, Margot Robbie, Johnny Depp, and a slew of other A-listers — was spotted hanging out with Gaga at a Kings of Leon concert in January of 2017. Just work pals, or something more?
One month after Gaga and Carino are spotted at a concert, the pair is seen canoodling before the "Edge of Glory" singer's epic Super Bowl performance. The two are also seen hanging out together at a Grammys party.

"When I went backstage, Christian was by the stairs making sure I was okay," said the singer, per Page Six. "The best part about being in love with someone is having them there to catch you if you fall,” Gaga said.
The following month, Carino shares a photo of him and Gaga looking particularly lovey-dovey on a beach.
