Taylor Kinney’s personal life has become a topic of interest for Chicago Fire fans. This is due to the fact that the actor will be taking a leave of absence from the show to deal with a personal matter. It hasn’t been revealed exactly what the matter is, but given the wall of silence from both Kinney’s representatives and the shows, it’s likely to stay that way.

Some have speculated that it may have to do with Kinney’s love life. So, in the interest of keeping fans up to date on everything that’s know about the actor, we decided to answer some questions about his past and current relationships.

Here’s what you need to know.

Who is Taylor Kinney’s girlfriend 2023?

The most high-profile relationship Kinney has been in is with Lady Gaga. He met the singer and Oscar-nominated actress on the set of her music video “You and I” in 2011, and stayed together until July 2016. The couple even got engaged at one point, but it was eventually called off.

For those wondering about Kinney’s marital status, this engagement was the closest he’s gotten to tying the knot. He’s not currently married and never has been. He’s also kept the romances that have followed Gaga under wraps, preferring not to subject them to the same media scrutiny.

Kinney is, however, in a relationship. He’s dating model Ashley Cruger, which was confirmed when the two attended Operation Smile’s 10th Annual Celebrity Ski and Smile Challenge in 2022. They walked the red carpet together and even packed on some PDA for good measure.

Cruger also made a cameo in the Chicago Fire season 11 premiere. She can be seen in the back of Molly’s Pub, where she is raising a glass of wine. Cruger confirmed that it was her in tweets after the episode aired, and even took screenshots to clarify for confused fans.

Cruger has not made any official comments regarding Kinney’s departure from Chicago Fire.
