It may not be what you would call a bad romance, but things aren't as quite as good between Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney as they once were.

We apologize, this video has expired.

Following reports of a split, the singer explained that she and her former fiancé are currently "taking a break."

On Tuesday night, Gaga shared a photo of the two of them walking off with their arms around each other.

"Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates," she explained in the caption that accompanied the pic on Instagram. "Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break."

The break comes almost a year and a half after they announced their engagement and Gaga revealed the heart-shaped diamond the "Chicago Fire" star gave her.

But despite the break, they aren't exactly giving up on the relationship just yet. Gaga added a message of hope and asked her followers to root for them.
