Lady Gaga has released a statement following her breakup from longtime love and fiance Taylor Kinney.
"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,” the singer confirmed on Instagram, with a black and white photo of the couple with their arms wrapped around each other’s shoulder.
"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."
