Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney Are Just ''Taking a Break''

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney are on a break after five years together.

A representative for the singer told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the couple is "taking a break." No more details were provided.

The 30-year-old pop star released a statement on Instagram following reports of a split.'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. 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.'  

Gaga and Kinney, a star on the NBC series "Chicago Fire," were engaged last year over a Valentine’s Day dinner last year at a New York restaurant owned by her family. They met in 2011 on the set of Gaga's "You & I" video. “

Gaga is currently in Cabo and is no longer sporting her heart-shaped Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring.
