Rise to Stardom
While Dan Horton is a known face in the American music industry, he suddenly surfaced on the media in late July 2019 after 'People' magazine posted photographs of Lady Gaga locking lips with the monitor engineer as the two enjoyed a brunch date at Granville restaurant in Studio City, California. Citing multiple eye witnesses, the media outlet reported that the two "appeared to be more than friends and were seen smooching multiple times while dining". According to the report, they had a table in the front near the sidewalk and were "clearly okay with being seen".
This came at a time when the internet was ripe with speculations about the personal life of Lady Gaga, after she called off her engagement to Christian Carino in February 2019 and was developing a close relationship with her 'A Star Is Born' co-star Bradley Cooper. While she was maintaining a low profile for some time, this particular incident put the rumors of her dating Cooper to rest, and at the same time sparked renewed interest among her fans about her new man, Horton.
The media went into a frenzy trying to unearth their past history to confirm if they were indeed dating. Soon after, she posted an image from the dinner on her Instagram, tagging Horton with the caption "The @dhortonaudio special", accompanied with love emojis. Interestingly, this has not been the first time Horton has been romantically involved with a celebrity. He was previously married to actress Autumn Guzzardi.
