After her rep confirmed news of the couple's split in February, a friend shared to WHO at the time: “It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end.”
“There’s no long dramatic story.”
Speculation began that the couple were taking time apart when eagle-eyed fans noticed that Gaga, 32, was not wearing her engagement ring at the Grammy Awards on February 10.
Gaga also did not thank Carino in her acceptance speech after her song 'Shallow' won the best pop duo or group performance prize.
Talk that the pair are back in touch, even if only as friends, is surprising for some, as when the couple split there were reports that Christian became clingy after the breakup.
With a source telling Us Weekly in April that Gaga was “hounded by Christian” after their breakup and she legit “told him not to contact her.”
Since the pair broke up, Gaga briefly dated Dan Horton, while Christian was reportedly dating publicist Robin Baum—who represents his close friend Johnny Depp—as of August.
Last week, ahead of the new year, Lady Gaga spoke out to reveal her plans for the next 10 years.
Speaking to YouTube star NikkieTutorials on her channel, the A Star Is Born actress revealed what's on the card for her in the (very-soon-to-arrive) next decade – and babies have made the list!
"More music, not retiring any time soon... all kinds of different music," she replied when asked what she thinks will happen in the next 10 years in Gaga land.
"I wanna do more movies, I wanna have babies and I want to continue to build the behemoth that is Haus Laboratories into the makeup company of my dreams."
"I'm living my inspirations right now, in this moment. When I get inspired, I do things right away," she shared.
"There will be tons of crazy things that I do over the next decade. I just don't know exactly what they are, which is why they'll be extra crazy."
Right now, she's busy nurturing her current baby – her Haus Laboratories makeup range, which the Oscar-winner created with her own makeup artist (and friend!), Sarah Tanno.
Speaking to Nikkie about the decision to launch a beauty range, Gaga explained:
"I've discovered myself through makeup, that's what made me feel beautiful, that's what made me invent Lady Gaga; because I looked in the mirror and I was like, 'I don't like what I see and I don't feel good on the inside, so I'm just gonna start painting now, and I'm gonna make something that I like.'"
