LADY Gaga has used the F word for the first time in regards to her music agent partner Christian Carino, calling him her fiance at a Women in Hollywood event in Los Angeles.
LADY Gaga has confirmed what many had thought to be true; the star is engaged to boyfriend Christian Carino.
The musician, currently riding high from rave reviews for her performance opposite Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born, spilt the secret at Elle’s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration, where she thanked “my fiance Christian” during her speech, according to People magazine.
According to the New York Post, fans had speculated that she and top music agent Carino, who has represented Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Miley Cyrus and Christina Aguilera, were engaged when she started wearing a pink diamond ring in late 2017.
As the New York Post previously reported, Gaga’s ring made Carino dive deep into his pockets given its rarity.
“A natural pink diamond of this saturation and size would be very rare, easily costing over $US1 million ($A1.4 million),” Brilliant Earth‘s VP of strategy and merchandising Kathryn Money (who did not work on Gaga’s ring) reportedly told the New York Post.
“If made with a premium-quality pink sapphire, this ring would cost upwards of $US100,000 ($A140,000), depending on the characteristics of the specific gemstone.”
Gaga and Carino have been together since February 2017 following she called off her engagement to actor Taylor Kinney in 2016.
Meanwhile, Carino was previously linked to The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan.
Gaga briefly opened up to People magazine in 2017, during a tour date in New York about Carino.
“When I went backstage, Christian was by the stairs making sure I was okay,” Gaga said. “The best part about being in love with someone is having them there to catch you if you fall.”
The pair were first seen together publicly during Gaga’s stunning halftime show at the Superbowl in 2017.
During her speech at the Women in Hollywood Celebration, Gaga, reflected on her role in A Star Is Born, saying, “Never within my wildest dreams would I think my life would become what it has.”
She also discussed why she wore an oversized Marc Jacobs suit to the event.
“I felt like me. I felt the truth of who I am up in my gut,” she said. “As a sexual assault survivor by someone in the entertainment industry, as a woman who is still not brave enough to say his name, as a woman who lives with chronic pain, as a woman who from a very young age who was conditioned to do what men told me to do, I decided today I wanted to take the power back. Today I wear the suit.”
