Lady Gaga’s Ex Looks Back on Their Bad Romance: “I Would Have Left Me, Too”
Lady Gaga’s ex-boyfriend Lüc Carl was not exactly a shining specimen of a man when he and the pop superstar dated from 2005 to 2008.
In his new memoir, The Drunk Diet: How I Lost 40 Pounds... Wasted (via Life & Style), Luc doesn’t mince words about his split with Gaga, writing, “The breakup with my girlfriend was my rock bottom. [...] I was f***ing miserable, and it wasn’t her fault. It was my fault for being a drunk a**hole. I would have left me, too."
To rub salt in his wounds, Gaga made it big soon after they parted ways. “I was happy for her, of course, but I didn’t really need my ex shoved down my throat,” Lüc writes.
Mother Monster has been dating Taylor since they met on the set of her video for “Yoü and I.” It’s kind of ironic, since the song could read as a love letter to Lüc. Exhibit A: the umlaut in the title that matches the one in Lüc’s name. Exhibit B: lyrics like “Baby, I’d rather die without you and I.” It’s just a theory, but the evidence is there.
