While rumors were swirling last week that Lady Gaga had split from her actor boyfriend to go on tour, it seems the truth is the complete opposite. Or it could just be another rumor.
This weekend, a photo of the singer sporting a diamond ring on her left hand went viral and has everyone wondering if Gaga is indeed engaged to her “Vampire Diaries” boyfriend.
The photo is the work of Terry Richardson, who’s been making headlines recently after posting a video of model Kate Upton doing the “Cat Daddy” dance.
In the infamous video released by Richardson a few weeks ago, Upton is seen bouncing around in a tiny bikini. The video was deemed to sexy for YouTube and officials took it down though they later reposted the video.
Richardson posted the photo of Gaga showing off a massive diamond and pointing to it with her cat-like claws Sunday. The photographer claims it’s her engagement ring: “Gaga showing off her new engagement ring!” reads his website.
Gaga has yet to confirm the engagement via Twitter of course. Recently, she revealed she’s done with the media. She told Oprah, during an episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” that she will not be appearing in interviews “for a very long time.”
“The latest thing I do is I don’t read a damn thing,” she said. “No press, no television. If my mom calls and says, ‘Did you hear about?’ I don’t want to know nothing about anything that is going on in relation to music. I shut it all off.”
Interestingly, she also told Oprah of her dreams of getting married and starting a family. “I want kids. I want a soccer team, and I want a husband,” she told Oprah.
The engagement follows rumors that she recently split from boyfriend Taylor Kinney to focus on her new tour.
The two started dating after meeting on the set of Gaga’s music video for “You and I,” and have reportedly been bunking together at Kinney’s beach home in California for months. The two even spent the Christmas holidays together and made plans to move in together permanently, according to reports.
