It’s only been six months since the world learned that Lady Gaga broke off her engagement with Christian Carino.
But unlike her A Star Is Born alter-ego, who famously promised she’ll “never love again” in song — Gaga already appears to have moved on.
Insiders tell E! News that the singer is “definitely dating” Dan Horton, a sound engineer with whom she’s worked for several years.
“She’s known him for a while and it turned romantic recently,” an insider tells the site.
“She likes being with one guy and in a relationship and that’s what she was hoping to find.”
The two have known each other since at least 2017, when Horton began working as Gaga’s monitor engineer.
“Dan is a really nice guy and she’s excited to spend time with him in this way. They are already very comfortable because they have worked together for a while.” the source says.
And while Gaga and Horton have made no official announcement, it seems they’re cool with the fact that the cat is out of the bag:
“She’s glad the news is out and that she doesn’t have to hide it. She wants to be able to go out and do things with him,” the insider says.
“So far they’ve been hanging out at home or in the studio. She’s having fun with him and seeing where it goes.”
Prior to his relationship with Gaga, Horton was married to a New York-based stage actress named Autumn Guzzardi.
There have been rumors that Horton and Guzzardi are still married, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
The couple divorced last year — although it seems Autumn might not be entirely thrilled by the fact that Horton has moved on with an A-lister.
The actress posted this photo of herself on Instagram earlier this week:
She captioned the pic, simply, “Poker Face,” an obvious reference to Gaga’s first hit.
The comments featured many heartfelt condolences, with some speculating that Guzzardi is maintaining a poker face to mask her emotions.
It’s a sad situation for Guzzardi, but it seems she may have to continue putting up with reports about Gaga and Horton’s blossoming relationship.
After all, this fling appears to be much more than just a bad romance.
