“Chris didn’t treat Gaga very well toward the end of their [two-year] relationship,” a source says exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly, noting that the pop star, 33, “really leaned on” pal Jeremy Renner “in the weeks after it ended.”

A second source reveals that “Gaga was the one who broke things off” with the talent agent, 49. “He was jealous,” the insider says. “He was trying to find her all the time and texted her a lot. Her friends didn’t like him either.”
