A new flame? Lady Gaga sparked dating rumors with audio engineer Dan Horton during a brunch date.
The A Star Is Born actress, 33, packed on the PDA with Horton, 37, while dining at Granville restaurant in Studio City, California, on Sunday, July 28. The rumored couple kissed several times during their hourlong date before heading over to Lemonade to pick up some drinks.
The potential relationship would be Gaga’s first since February, when she called off her nearly two-year engagement to talent agent Christian Carino. The couple started dating in early 2017, secretly got engaged that summer and were together throughout most of the 2019 awards season.
“Chris didn’t treat Gaga very well toward the end of their relationship,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively after the pair’s breakup. A second insider revealed that “Gaga was the one who broke things off.”
The nine-time Grammy winner was previously engaged to Taylor Kinney, whom she met on the set of her “Yoü and I” music video in July 2011. She and the Chicago Fire actor, 38, got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2015 and split in July 2016, when Gaga wrote on Instagram that she “always believed we are soulmates.”
For now, though, it seems Gaga has struck up a romance with Horton. Here are five things to know about him!
