Lady Gaga’s ex-boyfriend Luc Carl has admitted breaking up with the singer was difficult because her worldwide fame meant she was “shoved down his throat”.
The couple broke up in 2008 after three years together with reports blaming Gaga’s fame for their split.
Though the musician from New York claims he was pleased about her success he has revealed in his new book ‘The Drunk Diet: How I Lost 40 Pounds…Wasted: A Memoir’ that it was hard to escape her.
According to Life & Style the 31 year-old wrote: “I was happy for her, of course, but I didn’t really need my ex shoved down my throat.”
The New York native goes on to admit that his problems caused their break-up and doesn’t blame the ‘Born This Way’ star for leaving him. He said: “The breakup with my girlfriend [Lady Gaga] was my rock bottom.”
“It took me about a week to realize she was right. I was f–king miserable, and it wasn’t her fault. It was my fault for being a drunk a**hole. I would have left me, too.”
Though Gaga has never talked publically about her past relationship with Luc, she has revealed that ex-boyfriends have “betrayed” her, writing the song Judas after them.
She said: “I’ve had a lot of ex-boyfriends betray me, a**holes, we all have them.”
