Let’s hope this doesn’t turn into a Bad Romance!
The two met in late July on the set of said video, and have been dating ever since.
“It was just casual at first, but things are getting pretty hot and heavy,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.
And indeed the handsome twosome were getting steamy when they popped into beachside bar, The Sneak Joint in Mission Viejo, California on Sunday September 4 for a few shots of Johnny Walker.
“I couldn’t tell it was her at first,” a Sneak Joint patron tells RadarOnline. “It just looked like some hot couple making out, but then I realized it was Lady Gaga! Everyone went nuts! She was so sweet too -- she even signed some autographs.”
Then, on Monday September 5 Gaga and Taylor were spotted walking hand in hand on Mission Viejo’s main drag, Mission Boulevard.
“Her hair was a little messy. It definitely seemed like a ‘morning after’ situation,” our eyewitness says. “They are obviously totally into each other!”
And on Tuesday September 6 they were spotted yet again — this time on the beach!
So just who is this mysterious hunk that has won the heart of pop’s reigning princess?
30-year-old Kinney is an avid surfer who starred as Mason Lockwood on the hit series The Vampire Diaries. He hails from Pennsylvania and lives in Mission Viejo, a beach community in southern Orange County, famed for its sky scraping waves.
