Lady Gaga is officially single, but a new report from Us Weekly teases the possibility that a romance between her and Avengers actor Jeremy Renner may be forming. An insider told the outlet that Gaga has been “hanging out” with Renner, although the source “doesn’t believe it’s romantic at this point.” Still, the source asserts that Gaga has “been spending a lot of time” with Renner and his six-year-old daughter Ava.
The dating rumor comes one month after Gaga’s rep confirmed she called off her engagement to her boyfriend of two years, Christian Carino. A source told People at the time that the split wasn’t dramatic. “It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end. There’s no long dramatic story,” the source said.
Gaga went on to win her very first Oscar. Her romantic relationships ending during her best career moments has been a theme for her, Gaga admitted in her documentary Five Foot Two back in 2017.
She recounted the past incidents and how during the career highs, “my love life has just imploded,” Gaga said. “I sold 10 million [records] and lost Matt. I sold 30 million and lost Luke. I did a movie and lose Taylor. It’s like a turnover. This is the third time I’ve had my heart broken like this,” she said, referring at the time to Taylor Kinney’s and her romance ending.
Gaga also, by the way, definitively debunked gossip that she and her co-star Bradley Cooper were involved after their chemistry-filled Oscars duet. “First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet,” Gaga told Jimmy Kimmel when asked about the dating gossip. “And what it has done to pop culture is just like, abysmal. And yeah, people saw love, and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see. I mean, this is a love song, ‘Shallow.’ The movie, A Star Is Born, it’s a love story. We worked so hard. We worked all week on that performance.” She finished by saying that “I’m an artist. I guess we did a good job. Fooled ya!”
