Who is Taylor Kinney’s wife? A closer look at Taylor’s dating life

Taylor Kinney has graced our screens as Lieutenant Kelly Severide in Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago P.D. On screen, Kinney’s character has flawless chemistry with Miranda Rae Mayo’s character Stella. 

“I showed up, not really knowing him and only knowing him from the show, and just tried things in the scene,” Stella said. “But he is very present in our scene work, and so it was like a tango and I let him lead.”

Despite insistent links by fans, Taylor and Kinney’s relationship doesn’t extend beyond the Chicago set. Taylor is not married but seems to be dating. 

Taylor is rumored to be dating a girl named Ashley following a long stint single

Taylor Kinney ignited relationship rumors with a girl named Ashley after posting a couple of photos of her on Instagram. Both images showed Ashley getting a manicure, but the second photo featured edits we’ve struggled to decipher. 

“Why would you tell me that,” Kinney captioned the second photo

The rumors come after a long stint in which Taylor was linked to several women but didn’t confirm relationships with them. 

Kinney was linked to radiologist Alanna DiGiovanni after the pair attended a Formula One race and a Taylor Swift concert. Alanna reportedly visited Taylor on the Chicago Fire set. It’s unclear whether the couple dated. 

In mid-2019, Taylor was spotted kissing an unidentified woman in Columbia, Pennsylvania. In the early days of the pandemic, Taylor posted a video of himself and a different woman dancing to a Jon Pardi hit. 

Kinney hasn’t confirmed the rumors surrounding his love life; however, he has talked about the qualities he looks for in a lover. He told Entertainment Tonight:

“I don’t think I have a type. I think it’s more of an energy. I think of compatibility as the intangibles of something, and someone that you meet and connect with, and someone you can laugh with, and maybe share a [similar] sense of humor, then things go from there.”

Kinney was engaged to Lady Gaga for over a year

Kinney and Lady Gaga met on the set of her music video for You and I. The pair exchanged contact information and kept in touch after the shoot. 

The couple had a public relationship involving multiple social media posts and event appearances. Gaga seemed quite smitten with Kinney: she told Howard Stern: “He is the right guy. I have that feeling. I just know it. I really can’t imagine being with anyone other than who I’m with right now.”

On Valentine’s Day 2015, Lady Gaga accepted Taylor’s marriage proposal. However, the couple ended the engagement in July 2016. Lady Gaga released a statement appearing to blame the pair’s complicated schedules for the break:

“Just like all couples we have ups and downs and we are 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.”

Gaga later told Howard Stern that the pair were focused on different things. The couple remained close despite the end of their romance, she said. “I’m actually very close to Taylor,” she said. “He’s been my lover and my friend for a really long time.”

The singer praised Taylor for supporting her through her creative transformations. A source speaking to Us Weekly confirmed that Taylor and Gaga remained close friends:

“Gaga and Taylor Kinney are still very close, but they are only friends. Gaga and Taylor talk or text every single day and meet up when they’re in the same city, but nothing romantic is happening between them.”
