Lady Gaga sent fans into a frenzy when she was spotted locking lips and holding hands with an unidentified man on New Year’s Eve at the end of 2019.
Her date has since been revealed as Michael Polansky, investor and CEO of the Parker Group, and their romance has continued into 2020.
From relaxing in the sun in Miami to self-isolating in the same house during the pandemic, Gaga and Polansky have continued to build their relationship together.
In Lady Gaga‘s electro-pop song “Stupid Love,” from her newly released album “Chromatica,” she sings, “All I ever wanted was love.” Five months into her relationship with investor and entrepreneur Michael Polansky, it looks like the musician got what she asked for.
The duo was first seen together showing PDA on New Year’s Eve in 2019. When the video appeared on Twitter, Gaga’s fans scrambled to identify Polansky, the CEO of the Parker Group, and learn more information about the star’s new beau. The couple, who reportedly met through Facebook co-founder Sean Parker, have been together since.
After taking a trip to Miami and spending time in self-isolation together during the pandemic, Gaga referred to Polansky as the “love of my life.”
