After attending the GRAMMYs without her fiancé or her engagement ring, rumors about Lady Gaga and Christian Carino’s relationship began swirling. Now, a source has officially confirmed that the two are going their separate ways.

After two years together, the pair is splitting up. A source tells PEOPLE that there’s no drama or animosity, but that “It just didn’t work out.” 

In her 2017 documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, Lady Gaga explained how her break-ups often come after huge successes in her career. “It’s like a turnover,” she explained before giving examples of how starring in a movie, selling 30 million albums, and now winning a slew of awards for A Star Is Born came just before her relationships ended. 

Similar to a surprising amount of whirlwind celebrity relationship such as Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s, Carino is left with a tattoo of Gaga’s face on his arm.
