It's official. Lady Gaga and Christian Carino are not getting married

February 19, 2019

Rumors have been around for a while now and where there's smoke, there's usually fire.

In this case they were right. Lady Gaga's rep confirmed that she and her fiancé, Christian Carino (who is her agent at CAA), are not getting married. He didn't go with her to the Grammys and she wasn't wearing her engagement ring and that's really when tongues started wagging in earnest.

She's only 32 years-old and he's 50; that's a pretty big age difference, although for some people that really works. And how ironic that this is happening right when she's in the middle of being lauded for her work on A Star is Born.

You could argue that this was a successful engagement. Isn't the whole idea of an engagement to give you time to sort out in a real way if this is the person you want to meet at the altar? Better to break up now than divorce later. If you're like me, and you had a false start before making it all the way down the aisle, you know this is actually a good thing.
