New couple alert?! Stepping out for dinner in NYC with actor Ray Liotta, Lady Gaga isn’t wasting any time getting over her ex-fiancé Taylor Kinney. What kind of ‘Love Game’ is she playing? Check out the details on their cozy dinner date below.
This news came as quite a shock to us as well. We know what you’re thinking, how do Lady Gaga, 30, and Ray Liotta, 61, even know each other?! The duo met on set of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For in 2014, but we didn’t know they hit if off so well! Could Ray be the singer’s ticket out of a broken heart? Less than a month after Gaga and Taylor Kinney announced the end of their engagement, the Lady stepped out for a swanky dinner at Italian restaurant L’Artusi in Manhattan with a handsome Tramp.
Did they sip spaghetti noodles together under the moonlight? Not exactly, because Gaga’s dad was also there, and that would have made him an awkward third wheel. Still, the “Poker Face” singer and the Goodfellas actor were “super chummy” with each other as they snuck away on multiple smoke breaks, according to Page Six, and walked around the West Village together past 10pm!
Was Gaga’s dad trying to play matchmaker and set her up with Ray? It would make sense since Ray is closer in age to her dad than to his daughter’s. But is Gaga truly ready to close the chapter on her 5-year romance with Taylor? The last time Gaga spoke about him was via Instagram, where she called him her “soul mate” and claimed the two were just taking some time apart. “Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break,” she wrote in a post. She even asked fans to “root” them on as a couple!
So what the heck is going on with Ray?! There were no reports of Gaga and Ray kissing the night of their date, but it does send a weird message to Taylor that she’s hanging out with other guys. Both Gaga and Ray’s reps have denied that they’re dating, and persisted that he’s a friend the singer’s dad, Joe Germanotta. Father monster owns his own Italian restaurant in NYC, which could bridge the connection. Phew, this is all starting to make a little more sense now.
