No shade intended! Lady Gaga’s ex Taylor Kinney apparently didn’t mean to “like” a super salty comment about her that was posted to one of his Instagram photos. Hmm, a likely story. Should we give him the benefit of the doubt?
On Monday, February 25, Taylor, 37, took to Instagram to share a photo with a friend. “Stoked to be out with my guy @bbickell and his wife @abickell for the weekend. 29. Good times in Chicago @bickellfoundation cheers @chicagocutsteakhouse,” he captioned the shot. But when someone wrote, “Stoked you got away from Gaga #Hollyweird,” in the comments, Taylor “liked” the response, which is really not cool considering their history. However, on Wednesday, February 27, Taylor explained in the comments of the same post, “Sorry for the ‘like.’ It was an accident. I’m only proud and happy for Stef.” Much better!
The singer, 32, and the Chicago Fire actor started dating in 2011, but in July 2016, Lady Gaga shared an emotional Instagram update explaining that they split up. “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’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.” Sadly, the two of them never really came back from that break.
Eventually, Lady Gaga started seeing Christian Carino instead. Speculation that the couple had started dating began months before they confirmed the news in February 2017, but on February 19, 2019, the news broke that they, too, had called it quits. Poor Gaga!
But don’t worry too much about the “Born This Way singer,” because in spite of the breakups and seemingly salty comments from exes, she’s doing pretty well for herself these days. Heck, she just took home her first-ever Oscar for Best Original Song for “Shallow,” featured in the critically-acclaimed A Star Is Born — the movie that also got her nominated for a Best Actress honor. Who cares about exes who may or may not be acting shady on Instagram when you’ve got to work on finding a place to show off all your shiny new awards?
