After five years of dating, Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney have reportedly called it quits.

According to TMZ, which broke the story moments ago, Gaga and Kinney quietly parted ways earlier this month.

No word yet on who initiated the breakup.

Nor is there any word on specifically why the parting of ways occurred, as the superstar has seldom divulged much about the romance.

The news, while coming out of nowhere to some casual observers, doesn't come as a surprise to the most obsessive Gaga-watchers.

Many of her Little Monsters noted on social media that the couple has seldom been seen in one another's company in recent weeks.

Gaga and Kinney got engaged back in February of 2015, but rumors of trouble in paradise began soon after.

Just last week, Gaga was spotted not wearing her engagement ring while out and about in Malibu.

Interestingly, the sighting took place on Kinney's 35th birthday, which the former couple seems to have spent miles away from each other.

Never a good sign for a once-smitten twosome.

As recently as last month, there were reports that Kinney and Gaga had pushed their wedding back so that they could focus on starting a family.

Yes, you read that correctly.

The bizarre nature of the rumor led to instant speculation that it was planted by someone on Gaga's team for unknown reasons.

We still don't know for sure if that's the case.

However, it seems more likely than before, if nothing else, in the wake of news that the couple has called the nuptials off entirely.

The pop star plucked Kinney from relative obscurity when they began dating, and his time in the tabloid spotlight is likely over.

Sure he's still one of the stars of NBC's Chicago Fire, but that's small potatoes compared to being the man in the Mother Monster's life.

Still one of the most eccentric and beloved figures in modern music, Gaga kept her relationship relatively private, enhancing the mystery.

At this point, neither party has publicly confirmed the split, but sources close to both sides say it's definitely a done deal.

Stay tuned, because if the past is any indication, we're sure Gaga won't keep her Little Monsters in the dark for long.
