Taylor Kinney’s former girlfriend, Brittany Sackett, reveals that she found out he was cheating on her with singer Lady Gaga when he accidentally butt-dialed her.
Sackett received a call early one morning from Kinney and could hear muffled voices and kissing sounds.
The aspiring model first met Kinney in June 2010 when they lived as next-door neighbors.
She said, “He is an attractive guy and he is down to earth, we both had a good spirit of adventure, we both liked to be spontaneous, it was a fun relationship”.
Brittany said she was dating someone else at the time (Taylor was too) but she “soon felt herself becoming attracted to the handsome actor”.
She explained, “We always thought each other was attractive, I was in a relationship at the time, he was too. Then we both broke up and were both single. We started to hang out with out friends and then he asked me out on a date. Our first date was a motorcycle ride out to Julian. He had a GSXR six cylinder. I liked him a lot, we were both coming out of a relationship so we were in no rush. I was 24.”
Sackett said, “He would give sweet gifts that were really meaningful and thoughtful, like engraved necklaces with inside jokes on them, it was sweet. I spent time with his family, he took me up to Philadelphia for Christmas to spend time with them, his family are really loving.”
Sackett said the actor, who now stars as Kelly Severide on Chicago Fire, was a romantic boyfriend and loved treating her.
She said, “Taylor would write love poems and leave them in my room. We’d both say we loved each other all the time and we used to talk about marriage, you know joking around, but I don’t think either of us was considering it right then.
Brittany said Taylor lived in a “beach shack” and didn’t even have a bed. He had very few possessions but was fanatical about cleanliness.
Kinney was trying to break in to acting when he and Sackett dated, but he yet hadn’t landed any major roles.
He had previously worked as a construction worker in Maui, Hawaii.
Brittany revealed she discovered Taylor was cheating on her after he butt-dialed her.
Sackett, 30, knew the 33-year-old actor had appeared in Lady Gaga’s music video You and I and he told her they were friends.
Brittany said of the incident, “Taylor pocket dialed me at 2:30 in the morning. I could tell it was intimate conversation, I could hear kissing, muffled sounds and I recognized Lady Gaga’s voice. You couldn’t tell whether they were having sex but I knew something was going on, it wasn’t right. You have your instincts as a woman. In that moment I was super sad, I was pissed. I never saw it coming.”
She added, “My boyfriend was making out with Lady Gaga – it sucked. I felt betrayed, who wouldn’t?”
Brittany said Taylor had checked his phone the following day and realized he must have accidentally called her.
He called her up and neither one mentioned the incident, but things were awkward.
She stated, “I wanted to see how it played out, but later I saw one of his friends and he said to me, ‘You know what’s going on with Taylor and Lady Gaga right?’ Sadly I did. Eventually I met with Taylor and he said he was really sorry but I didn’t want to hear any of his excuses.
I told him how I felt, I told him he should have been honest so I didn’t have to find out through his friend. We talked about how we were weren’t a match for each other and we agreed to go our separate ways.”
Sackett said Kinney admitted that he’d cheated on her later and apologized in a text message.
She said, “It was really unexpected, everything was going well and I wish he had come to me first and said he had this connection with her. It wasn’t fair to me, his lack of honesty. It’s weak-willed when you don’t have the guts to come clean like a normal, honest human being, I think I would have respected that. I’d like to think he’d do it differently now, I’m sure he’s changed and he’s learned from it. I forgive him.”
The real estate agent said that the last time she saw Kinney was when she bumped him when he was with Gaga in coffee shop in San Diego.
She said, “They looked like they’d been partying for a while. Gaga had full make-up, her hair was a total mess and she was smoking a cigarette. I talked briefly with Taylor, but Gaga didn’t talk to me at all – it was super-awkward and uncomfortable.”
Brittany said she bears no animosity towards Kinney and his now-fiancee, Lady Gaga.
She said, “I’m not one of those girls who gets psycho and is going to slash your tires, but I was bummed, he was lying and being dishonest. Obviously we both cared for each other and it sucked. Of course I was disappointed, but I’m happy he’s found someone he connects with, I forgive him.”
Sackett adds that Lady Gaga did her “a favor”.
She explained, “Taylor showed himself up for the type of guy he is, he chose the path he’s gonna take, that’s maybe why it didn’t bug me as much. They both did what they did, but the way I look at it is that it allowed me to end the relationship. For me it was a case of, ‘on to the next’.
She adds, “Everyone makes mistakes and Lady Gaga did me a favor. I’ve since met an amazing man who makes me really happy.”
There is the saying, “How you get ’em is how you’re going to lose ’em.” That seems to fit here!
