Lady Gaga & Taylor Kinney Split

Raise your hand if you’re surprised that Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney never made it down the aisle. No one? Didn’t think so. While the couple were “together” for several years and got engaged a while ago (I literally don’t care enough to look up exact dates for either), they never actually seemed to be in the same place, save for a few strategic magazine snaps (and some pretty tacky ones, too).

Anyhoo, there won’t be any surprise to anyone that they’re no longer together and have decided to split. Question: if you’re rarely if ever physically together, were you actually in a relationship anyway? Apparently this lack of proximity and the classic “busy schedules” are the culprit for their decision to go their separate ways.

“Their work kept them apart a lot,” an industry source tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Chicago Fire keeps him in Chicago and her work is almost always elsewhere.”

I wonder what “industry source” (i.e. intern) came up with that hot mess of a vague quote? I also love that they felt the need to point out that the quote was given to them EXCLUSIVELY. God forbid another site make up a non-quote themselves!

In any case, I don’t mean to shade Gaga and Taylor – their relationship just fell prey to what every other Hollywood relationship does: ego. By that I mean, they both need to work to hang onto their fame, which leaves very little time for each other. Fair enough – do you, celebrities.
