Lady Gaga has a new boyfriend, and it’s not Bradley Cooper (thank God)

Lady Gaga looked glamorous as she flaunted her typical campy attire while at her Haus Laboratories party!

This week, Lady Gaga wanted us to know that she’s got a new man and his name is NOT Bradley Cooper. There were some theories and conspiracies on top of conspiracies that B-Coop and Gaga were happening undercover, or that one of them (or both?) wanted us to believe that something could be happening, that A Star Is Born was REAL. The Gaga-Cooper shippers amuse me and I just feel like… please, it was a movie, and not even a good movie at that. Anyway, Gaga is dating someone new: an audio engineer named Dan Horton. It seems like they’ve been low-key dating for a few months. People Mag had the exclusive photos:

And People followed up with a story in the new issue about how Gaga is happier these days and no, she’s not banging Bradley Cooper for the love of God.

Ever since she was spotted kissing her monitor engineer Dan Horton during a brunch date in Los Angeles on Sunday, Lady Gaga has had fans buzzing about her possible new romance. The outing marked the first time the pop star has stepped out with a new man since calling off her engagement to talent agent Christian Carino in February. In the months since, Gaga has deflected rumors about a romance with her A Star Is Born costar Bradley Cooper. She proved that the pair have chemistry with both on-and-offscreen after their intimate performance of “Shallow” at the 2019 Academy Awards.

“All the attention for the movie and her split from Christian was a bit much,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday. “She escaped to Mexico with friends twice just to get out of L.A. She seemed tired and a bit gloomy.”

When Cooper also split from his longtime girlfriend, model Irina Shayk, in June, the romance rumors between the actor and “Bad Romance” singer intensified. “She wanted to focus on work, but [didn’t] want to deal with any attention that was related to Bradley Cooper,” the source says. “You could tell that she was so sick of the romance rumors.”

Currently on break from her Las Vegas residency, Enigma, Gaga has been keeping busy with her new Amazon-exclusive cosmetics line, Haus Laboratories. “She seems very involved and excited,” says the source. “Although she has been very busy, lately she seems happier.”

I’ve always felt like Gaga had a bad picker and I’ve never really thought she “fit” with any of her previous boyfriends. Every relationship she’s been in felt like she was “trying on” a new personality, a new way of being a girlfriend, from the Sid & Nancy thing with Luc Carl, the “Hollywood” romance with Taylor Kinney, the “managed/controlled” engagement to Christian Garino. But dating her audio engineer just seems so low-key and normal. Did Tori Amos end up marrying her sound engineer? Let me look that up…yep. Tori Amos did THAT. So it’s a thing. Anyway, I hope Gaga is happy! I’m being serious, I’m glad that she’s not with some celebrity or some controlling a–hole (or both).

    Disappointed. Thought it was Brad Pitt, for good old summer gossip’s sake.
    Although, glad it isn’t, no need for two narcissistic people in a relationship, and one of them with a drinking problem to boot.

      Both Gaga and Pitt have had their issues with booze. She’s sung about it, and when she was dating that Nebraskan, she was well known around Omaha establishments for being super-sweet, but putting away a TON of booze.

    I liked ASIB a lot. I sobbed the end. Thought her and Bradley were wonderful.

    Glad she has a new guy. She didn’t look that happy with Carino but I thought her and Taylor Kinney were super cute together but her career eclipsed his so much I think it caused issues, plus they lived in different states.

    I love Gaga so really hope she finds her true love. My Co worker knows her family loosely and says they are all lovely people and that Gaga is SO generous to charities and her staff and is just generally a great person.

      I agree with your post, especially this:
      “her and Taylor Kinney were super cute together but her career eclipsed his so much I think it caused issues,”

      It seemed like they fell out right around when she was cast in ASIB.

    I was surprised at how much I like “ASIB”…the chemistry between ALL the actors was magnificent…and everyone could act and sing their TAILS off….

      I really liked it, but this was the first version I had seen and I didn’t know how it would end. So when the movie started to go there and I realized what was happening I didn’t finish it.

    It was never going to be Bradley Cooper. Good luck to her!

    I liked A Star is Born, thought they had great chemistry, and think Bradley and Gaga were friendly. I do think it’s interesting that when he and Irina broke up, People, and it was clearly from his team, ran this weird article that was like “he and Gaga have a connection and are good friends” while this article, clearly from Gaga’s team, is all “she has a new man, she’s sick of the Bcoop rumors” and didn’t even bother to say anything like “she’s friends with Bradley.” Lainey wasn’t the only one who basically theorized that he was using Gaga to deflect from some other rumors around his break up (cough cough the gay rumors..he allegedly hates the gay rumors and a womanizer rep would do away with them). My huge assumption is Gaga’s team was pissed about it, because other woman rumors aren’t good and apparently even her IG was getting swarmed by Russian trolls about his break up with Irina, and I wonder if she’s not even friendly with him anymore because of it.

    Anyway, I read the article. Dude is age appropriate, owns his own sound company and has worked with big names like Bruno Mars, and doesn’t seem to have any baggage except an ex wife who posted something slightly snarky. She usually has a terrible picker, but he seems way better than the last guy she was with who was old enough to be her father and gave off weird, controlling vibes.

    I didn’t like A Star is Born. I could not understand the hype. It felt like such a rushed film. One minute they met, the next they were married. I didn’t see any chemistry between them. I didn’t even buy they were in love. The end made me cry but how could it not?

    This guy is not cute. If the rumors had been true about BC and LG it would have been epic. Do it for the drama!

  7. Renee says:

    I loved ASIB. I loved their chemistry together!

  8. LolaB says:

    I love that you remembered that about Tori Amos.

  9. RabbitHole says:

    I am blown away that anyone who saw that movie could say that they had ANY chemistry. And Cooper always looks like a serial killer to me. But hey, it seems I’m in the minority with these opinions. *Shrugs*
