Taylor Kinney apologises for throwing shade at Lady Gaga

He said it was a mistake.

While it's been a whopper couple of months for Lady Gaga professionally, it's sure to have been a tough time for the star in her personal life.

The singer took home her first Oscar at Sunday's Academy Awards, less than a week after she and her fiancé Christian Carino announced they were going their separate ways.

Then yesterday, her ex-fiancé Taylor Kinney appeared to shade the star. He was spotted liking a pretty rude comment on an Instagram post this week.

A comment left on a photo of Taylor's this week read "stoked you got away from Gaga #Hollyweird".

Taylor gave the message a cheeky like, pretty much endorsing it for the world to see.

However, according to E! News he has apologised for it, saying: "Sorry for 'like.' It was an accident," he said on Instagram.

"I'm only proud and happy for Stef."

Taylor and Lady Gaga were together for five years, having met on the set of her video for You And I.
