Lady Gaga recently returned her engagement ring to former fiance, Taylor Kinney, despite ending their engagement in July last year.

According to InTouch Weekly, Gaga was holding on to the giant rock in hopes of a reconciliation but had no choice than to return the heart-shaped Lorraine Schwartz sparkler as she moves on with her new lover named Christian Carino (pictured above).

“Lady Gaga gave Taylor back her heart-shaped engagement ring shortly after the holidays,” a source told the publication.

The source divulged that even though Gaga and Taylor ‘had been spending time together late last year, he just wouldn’t commit to getting engaged again’. “She was incredibly sad to give the ring back, but it was the closure she needed.” the source concluded.
