Lady-GagaLady Gaga and fiancé Taylor Kinney had split, the Grammy-winning artist clarified late Tuesday, July 19, that she and the actor haven’t ended things for good.

After news broke on her split with Taylor, she took to Instagram to clear the air on their relationship.

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,” Gaga, 30, captioned a black-and-white photo of her and the Chicago Fire star walking with their arms around each other. “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,” she continued. “We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”

Gaga and Kinney’s busy schedules, which caused them to spend time apart, played a huge factor in their decision to call off their engagement. A close pal to the singer told Us Weekly, “She started really writing and working on her album and he went back to work in Chicago. They kept going weeks without seeing each other.”

Another source added, “It’s really sad and [Gaga’s] really torn up. They thought they’d be together forever. Distance was a big part of it.”

The pair met on the set of her music video “You and I” and eventually got engaged on Valentine’s Day last year.

The source added that the two are “super bummed out” about taking a break from their relationship, but noted, “they absolutely could get back together.”

“It’s really sad and [Gaga’s] really torn up,” one insider told Usearlier. “They thought they’d be together forever. Distance was a big part of it.”
