Lady Gaga is on the road for her Born This Way Ball Tour and it’s clear that her first love is (and always will be) her little monsters. Since she is on tour for at least a year, it’s reportedly taken its toll on her relationship.

Word is that the Mother Monster and her actor boyfriend Taylor Kinney have reportedly split. Guess the cat she got remind him of her while they were apart wasn’t enough to save the romance.

UsWeekly reports that Gaga and Kinney, the former star of ‘Vampire Diaries,’ are “on a break.” Didn’t Ross and Rachel on ‘Friends’ have one of those? Nevertheless, the source said, “She will be touring nonstop until next year and has found she can’t have relationship at the same time.” Long distance is always hard, but we thought that someone as determined as Gaga could make it work.

Gaga is also allegedly recording the ‘Born This Way’ follow-up while on the road and doing 110 shows. That makes her a busy girl, with little time or energy for play. The insider revealed, “There’s just no room for anything else. Her work is all-consuming.”

A friend dissed Kinney, even though Gaga was, well, gaga about him in her Oprah Winfrey interview. She didn’t name names, but said she was happy and we believed her.

The insider said, “Taylor was all about himself, a typical actor, and didn’t completely get Gaga.” He was also not as attentive to her as she’d like.

We don’t know about you, but Gaga isn’t easy to “get” and she probably likes it that way. Still, she dug that she was with a super hot dude. “She loved that she got this guy who everyone thought was hot! But it was never going to last,” the source stated.

Maybe absence will make the heart grow fonder?
