Taylor Kinney and Lady Gaga have been happily together for almost four years, but the newly-engaged couple’s long relationship may have had a questionable start, according to an ex-lover.

Brittany Sackett, who dated Kinney for over a year, claims that the actor had cheated on her with Gaga back in 2011 when they were still together.

According to Sackett, she found out about Kinney’s alleged infidelity when the 33-year-old accidentally butt-dialed her one night while he was supposedly out with the Mother Monster. At the time, Kinney had just starred in the singer’s music video for “You and I” and was still trying to make it big as an actor.

“Taylor pocket dialed me at 2:30 in the morning,” she recalls to the Daily Mail. “I could tell it was intimate conversation, I could hear kissing, muffled sounds and I recognized Lady Gaga’s voice. You couldn’t tell whether they were having sex but I knew something was going on, it wasn’t right.”

Sackett, now a real estate agent in San Diego, says Kinney phoned her the next day after realizing what happened, but neither of them spoke directly about the accidental call.

“I wanted to see how it played out, but later I saw one of his friends and he said to me, ‘You know what’s going on with Taylor and Lady Gaga right?’ Sackett says. “Sadly I did. Eventually I met with Taylor and he said he was really sorry but I didn’t want to hear any of his excuses. I told him how I felt, I told him he should have been honest so I didn’t have to find out through his friend. We talked about how we were weren’t a match for each other and we agreed to go our separate ways.”

She adds that Kinney had later sent her an apology text saying he was “truly sorry” and that she’s “an amazing woman.”

Despite breaking things off, Sackett, who initially met Kinney in June 2010 as his neighbor, says she doesn’t blame Gaga for what happened.

“Obviously we both cared for each other and it sucked,” she says. “Of course I was disappointed, but I’m happy he’s found someone he connects with, I forgive him.”

“I’m not one of those girls who gets psycho and is going to slash your tires, but I was bummed, he was lying and being dishonest,” she continues, adding that Gaga had done her a “favor” in revealing her ex’s true side. “Taylor showed himself up for the type of guy he is, he chose the path he’s gonna take, that’s maybe why it didn’t bug me as much. They both did what they did, but the way I look at it is that it allowed me to end the relationship.”

Gaga, 28, and Kinney have been dating since 2011. The couple got engaged earlier this year when Kinney proposed with a heart-shaped Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring.
