Washington, D.C., July 20 (ANI): Pop star Lady Gaga has opened up about her relationship with fiance Taylor Kinney and said they are just "taking a break."

Addressing her relationship status with Kinney, Gaga, 30, posted a black and white picture of them walking together on Instagram and wrote, "Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break," reports E! Online.

She added, "We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We're just like everybody else and we really love each other. "

The 'Poker Face' hit-maker's representative was quoted, as saying, "They are taking a break."

"She's working on an album, he's working on his show, they aren't in the same state, it was just hard. They both love each other very much and they want it to work. It's just been tough with the long distance," the insider added.
