Lady Gaga recently split up from her boyfriend Taylor Kinney, but her pal Terry Richardson has claimed today the singer is engaged.
The celebrity photographer posted a link to his blog on Twitter, writing: “Gaga showing off her new engagement ring!”
It links to a picture of Lady Gaga brandishing a huge rock on her engagement finger.
Of course, it could be just an elaborate hoax, given that Lady Gaga, 26, split from Vampire Diaries actor Taylor Kinney earlier this month.
TMZ is running the story and carrying the picture of Lady Gaga wearing the ring, claiming there are conflicting reports about her relationship status.
It was reported earlier this month how Lady Gaga called time on her relationship with Taylor Kinney because she wants to concentrate on her career.
Apparently Lady Gaga decided it was pointless to string him along as she embarks on her mammoth Born This Way Ball tour, so decided to it was time for the couple to “take a break”.
A source close to Lady Gaga told Us Weekly: “She will be touring nonstop until next year and has found she can’t have relationship at the same time.”
It seems Lady Gaga decided she would be juggling too many interests by recording her next album, maintaining her relationship and embarking on a 110-show tour, and that something had to give.
The insider added: “There’s just no room for anything else. Her work is all-consuming.”
