Lady Gaga split from her fiancé Taylor Kinney in July 2016, and the two have always remained vague about what exactly caused the break up.
But now, in the new documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two (which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival on Friday and will debut on Netflix on September 22), the Joanne singer reveals a little bit about the deterioration of the relationship. In the very first scene, Lady Gaga talks about the Chicago Fire actor and how things are not going well. “Me and Taylor are fighting, so that sucks,” she says, according to People. “My threshold for bulls— with men is just — I don’t have one anymore. In relationships, you have to move together.” She then revealed that she’s written a new song called “Million Reasons” — which we now know is about struggling with a relationship and whether to end things.
Later in the documentary, Gaga reveals that she has ended her engagement with Taylor and breaks down when she talks about how her demanding career might have contributed. “My love life has just imploded,” she says. “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.” (Gaga and Taylor called it quits shortly after she landed a leading role in Bradley Cooper‘s A Star Is Born.)
Despite the clearly painful situation, Gaga and her ex have stayed friends throughout. In the documentary, she receives flowers from him on the day of her big halftime performance at the Super Bowl. She jokes, “Nothing like flowers from your ex-fiancé on the day of the Super Bowl.” Incidentally, he was also spotted in the stands at the big game cheering on Gaga. He’s also been seen at some of her recent shows, and Gaga has said on multiple occasions that they still love and respect each other. And, some good news for those who haven’t been keeping up with the ins and outs of her love life, Mother Monster has a new beau, her talent agent, Christian Carino.
