Break-ups are never easy, and Lady Gaga’s most recent instagram post reminds us that it’s no different, and it certainly doesn’t get any easier, if you’re famous.

Showbiz news has been awash this week with the reports that after five years in an ‘on-off’ relationship, Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney, her hot ‘Chicago Fire’ star fiancé, had called off their engagement. The sad news came just over a year after they first announced their engagement and revealed he’d proposed on Valentine’s Day.

A source close to the couple confirmed that their busy work schedules on opposite sides of the country (and sometimes the world) eventually caused the couple to split. “Their work kept them apart a lot. Chicago Fire keeps Taylor in Chicago and [Lady Gaga’s] work is almost always elsewhere” the source revealed.

However, Lady Gaga was keen to let the world know that all was not as simple as it seemed, and although their work schedules are keeping them apart from now, there’s no love lost between the couple.

In fact, quite the opposite, as according to the star’s instagram post, Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney still, “really love” each other, and plan to try and work on their relationship. “Please root us on” the singer asked.

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.

Here’s hoping these two can work it out!
