Prior to tonight’s event, Gaga was spotted out on a date night with boyfriend Christian Carino, according to People, doing a little celebrating early. Carino, 48, works as a CAA (Creative Artists Agency) talent agent and some of his client list includes celebrities Justin Bieber, Simon Cowell, Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Lopez. In fact, Entertainment Tonight reported that Carino is actually Gaga’s talent agent as well. And, he was photographed at her side when she took on last year’s Super Bowl halftime set.
Previously, Carino was dating The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan, according to E! News. Lady Gaga previously dated and was engaged to longtime fiance, actor Taylor Kinney and her relationship with Carino is the first reported romantic relationship for Gaga since her split from Kinney. Carino and Gaga have reportedly been dating for over a year.
Recently, Gaga inked herself a deal for a Las Vegas residence, so that’s definitely something to celebrate, according to MGM. In announcing the news, MGM released this official statement, “Six-time GRAMMY Award-winner, Golden Globe Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee superstar entertainer Lady Gaga will bring her one-of-a-kind talent and creativity to the stage at Park Theater at Park MGM in Las Vegas beginning in December 2018.

With a show designed specifically for this intimate venue, Lady Gaga will launch a two-year, multi-date love affair with Las Vegas.”
Variety reports that Gaga’s Vegas deal is worth up to $100 million and includes at least 74 performance dates. And, Gaga’s man reportedly helped negotiate the terms of the contract, with the help of attorney Kenny Meiselas of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks with Sonya Guardo.
