Lady Gaga and her fiancé Christian Carino have split, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end,” a source tells PEOPLE. “There’s no long dramatic story.”

Speculation began that the couple was taking time apart when eagle-eyed fans noticed that Gaga, 32, was not wearing her engagement ring at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 10. Gaga also did not thank Carino in her acceptance speech after her song “Shallow” won the best pop duo or group performance prize.

Gaga debuted a large tattoo on her spine that pays tribute to her role in the acclaimed musical-drama.

“Happy Valentine’s Day. A tattoo toast to “la vie en rose” by the beautiful @winterstone my spinal cord is now a rose,” Gaga wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the completed tattoo of an intricate outline of a single rose on a long stem with the words, “la vie en rose” written in script beside it.

She also got the musical notes “G” and “A” on sheet lines of sheet music tattooed onto the inside of her arm to spell out her famous moniker.

At Elle‘s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in October 2018, honoree Gaga revealed her engagement to Carino by thanking “my fiancé Christian” during her speech.

PEOPLE exclusively confirmed Gaga and the talent agent, 49, were dating in February 2017 after the couple were spotted getting affectionate at a Kings of Leon concert that year.

Christian is a good, grounding force and understands her career.”
