Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney Are 'Taking a Break'

The couple of five years announced their engagement in 2015.

The couple has been together for five years, and Kinney proposed last year on Valentine's Day with a massive heart-shaped diamond.

"Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break," she wrote. "We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We're just like everybody else and we really love each other."

"At the end of the day he's my best friend and having your lover be your best friend is, I mean, it's the best thing ever," she said.
