Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney 'taking a break'

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney 'taking a break'

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney are "taking a break".

The 'Pokerface' hitmaker - who got engaged to the 'Chicago Fire' star in February 2015 - urged her fans to keep rooting for them as they cope with the "long-distance and complicated schedules" that keep them apart.

Captioning a picture of the pair of them on Instagram, she wrote: "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."

It was previously revealed the couple struggled to deal with the distance as Taylor, 35, was always tied to Chicago.

A source shared: "Their work kept them apart a lot. 'Chicago Fire' keeps him in Chicago and her work is almost always elsewhere."

But the distance was not something new to them as Gaga, 30, recently opened up about how tough it is to be apart.

She said: "We don't have any rules about calling each other at certain times ... We'll go days at a time without talking and then we'll talk every day. He's on his journey and I'm on mine and we're gypsies. And then when we're together, we're really in love and that's it."

Before announcing their break, the pair had been busy planning their wedding.

Gaga said recently: "I think if I wouldn't let my mom do this with all of us and my family - I think if I would've denied the women of my life the planning of the wedding - they would probably kill me. I have all the help in the world in a way!"
