Lady Gaga has confirmed her new relationship – after a social media post made it Instagram official.
Following weeks of speculation, the US singer posted the image of her cuddling entrepreneur and investor Michael Polansky on Monday evening.
The couple were photographed leaving the Super Bowl together on Sunday, having first been pictured looking close in December.
In her post, Oscar-winner Gaga, 33, said they had “so much fun” in Miami for the Super Bowl – which she performed at herself in 2017.
“Love to all my little monsters and fans, you’re the best!” she added.
In her Instagram photo, Gaga – whose real name is Stefani Germanotta – is seated on Polansky’s lap, with the sea in the background.
According to his LinkedIn page, Polansky is a Harvard University graduate and chief executive of the San Francisco-based Parker Group, a role he has held for more than 10 years.
Gaga split from her fiance Christian Carino last year.
The break-up came after her duet with her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper at the Oscars, which sparked much speculation that they were in a relationship.
Cooper also split up from Irina Shayk, his girlfriend of four years, last year.
The Oscars duet of their hit song Shallow saw Gaga staring into Cooper’s eyes across a piano before he joined her at her seat.

Both Gaga and Cooper denied being romantically involved, with Gaga saying in an interview with Elle magazine in November that the Oscars performance had been meticulously planned and that the pair “wanted people to believe that we were in love”.
“In truth, when we talked about it, we went, ‘well, I guess we did a good job!'” Gaga told the magazine.
