- Lady Gaga was seen kissing audio engineer Daniel Horton in L.A. on Sunday.
- The pair appeared to be on a brunch date in Studio City.
- The PDA comes six months after the singer pated ways with former fiancé, talent agent Christian Carino.
Don’t freak out, but Lady Gaga may have a new man in her life. Six months after her breakup with talent agent (and now ex-fiancé) Christian Carino made news, the superstar was spotted locking lips with audio engineer Daniel Horton in L.A., according to very unsubtle photos published by People.
According to the outlet, the duo was spotted on a brunch date in Studio City’s Granville restaurant on Sunday. In one shot, Gaga is seen leaning over Horton and giving him a kiss as he sits at their table. The “Bad Romance” singer was dressed in her classic, casually edgy style in a black tank top, ultra-high cut-off shorts, leather booties, and a rosary for a necklace.
“They were kissing as they spoke really close up,” a source at the restaurant told People. “Ironically, she had a table in the front near the sidewalk, so she was clearly okay with being seen. She seemed very happy when interacting with the guy she was with.”
Gaga and Horton have not yet publicly addressed their rumored romance (or conspicuous make out session). People points out that Horton has worked as a monitor engineer for Gaga since November 2018, according to his LinkedIn.
His Instagram account is private, but his bio says he’s an audio mixer for acts like Gaga, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Justin Timberlake, and Bruno Mars. People reports that Horton married actress Autumn Guzzardi in 2013, but it’s unclear if or when they parted ways, as their last photo together on her Instagram was posted in 2016.
Gaga’s breakup with Carino, whom she dated for two years, was reported in February, days before her appearance at the 2019 Academy Awards and steamy “Shallow” performance with her A Star Is Born co-star and director, Bradley Cooper. The superstar had just publicly confirmed her engagement to Carino months before in October 2018, calling him her fiancé during an acceptance speech.
And if you’re still hung up on those Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga dating rumors, the singer shut those down months ago. She said of their seemingly romantic Oscars duet, “Yes, people saw love. And guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see!” She even joked, “I’m an artist, and I guess we did a good job, and fooled ya!”
