Lady Gaga and New Beau Michael Polansky Are Going Strong: Inside Their Love on Lockdown
Lady Gaga and new boyfriend Michael Polansky have been "hanging out at her house" and "ordering delivery food," a source tells PEOPLE in this week's issue
Lady Gaga and new boyfriend Michael Polansky are — quite literally — closer than ever.
Amid the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, pandemic, the “Stupid Love” singer, 34, has been spending quality time with the tech investor, 36, at her house in Malibu, California, where “she’s very serious about staying home,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.
According to the source, the couple has “been hanging out at her house” and “ordering delivery food” while self-isolating.
Last month, Gaga (née Stefani Germanotta) posted on Instagram that she and Polansky were “going strong playing video games and cards and taking care of ourselves.” The pair were first linked at a New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas; Gaga confirmed the relationship in February when she shared a photo of herself cuddled up with Polansky on a yacht.
A source close to the pair previously told PEOPLE that the A Star Is Born actress met Polansky through mutual friends. “They weren’t shy about showing off PDA,” the insider said about the couple going public with their relationship. “They seemed very happy together.”
During a radio interview with The Kyle & Jackie O Show in March, Gaga — who ended her engagement to agent Christian Carino early last year — admitted that she “did not like being single” but that it made her stronger and more open to her eventual relationship with Polansky.
“I think that opening your heart in that way is very difficult, and it’s scary,” she said, adding that her new music has “made me open for a place where I could fall in love.”
