Lady Gaga broke up with ex-fiancé Christian Carino because he texted her too much, says source

Toward the back end of last year, there was a celebrity breakup that helped to fuel a ton of relationship drama in the early weeks of 2019. Around that time, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were making waves with A Star Is Born, and their onscreen chemistry caused people to think: are these two kind of a thing?

Not helped by this rather steamy Oscars performance: 

Before, Lady Gaga had gotten engaged to Christian Carino, and nobody had anything to go off, but the breakdown of their relationship fuelled rumours that Cooper and Gaga were hooking up, and Lady Gaga even had to come out to say that nothing was happening.

But what was the reason that Lady Gaga broke up with Carino? At the time, Lady Gaga said that the story of the uncoupling was "not a long dramatic story", according to E! News. But it's recently emerged that Lady Gaga broke it off with Carino for another, more pertinent reason - her fiancé had become jealous.

"Chris didn't treat Gaga very well toward the end of their [two-year] relationship," a source explained to Us Weekly, while another source confirmed that it was Lady Gaga's choice to end the relationship: "He was jealous... He was trying to find her all the time and texted her a lot. Her friends didn’t like him either."

In the aftermath of her breakup, the same source admitted that Lady Gaga had been spending a lot of time with the Hurt Locker and Avengers star Jeremy Renner.

"They’ve become super close and hang out all the time," a source said of the couple, but as of yet, they're just friends: E! News explained that the situation is far from romantic.

"She has been friends with Jeremy Renner for a while. They often hang out when they are both in town. She's been spending time with him recently, but it's not romantic."

Lady Gaga celebrated her 33rd birthday earlier this week on March 28, and although she won't have a man on her shoulder, E! News also explained that she'll be surrounded by her closest friends. Booking a trip to Cabo with 11 of her closest friends, an insider said she'll just hang out, doing nothing at all.

"Cabo is Gaga's happy place and she was excited to get away for a few days...Everyone has been laying out at the pool, sipping drinks, and having food while laughing and chatting together. Gaga is excited to relax."

"It's been a super casual vacation so far," explained another source, "but Gaga has expressed that she is ready to celebrate getting older... Gaga has a private dinner planned for her birthday and is really happy to be spending her 33rd birthday with all of the people that have been by her side for many years."
