Love may not be dead after all.

Lady Gaga set the record straight about her reported split from fiancé Taylor Kinney. The singer took to Instagram on Tuesday night (July 19, 2016) to explain why she called off her engagement to the Chicago Fire star, insisting that the couple, who have been together for five years, are still very much in love.

“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. 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,” she wrote, alongside a black-and-white photo of the two with their arms around each other.

Gaga’s spokeswoman also confirmed to Page Six, “They are on a break.” Now that we know that long distance played a role in their breakup, a source also told the website, “They are still in constant communication. Yes, they are on a break, but they hope they can work things out. They still have a really deep love and respect for each other.”

Here’s to hoping they’ll reconcile — and we can all breath a sigh of relief.
