A (Mother) Monster + a werewolf = LOVE?

Even though Lady Gaga's 'You & I' is reportedly about her ex, that "cool Nebraska guy" Luc Carl, rumor is that the Mother Monster has a new BF and it's her 'You & I' co-star Taylor Kinney of 'Vampire Diaries' fame. Gaga and Kinney met in July on the set of the video and they have been getting close and cozy ever since!

RadarOnline reports that things started out slow but it has morphed into a full blown passion fest !"It was just casual at first, but things are getting pretty hot and heavy,” a source close to the Siciliano said.

The couple were reportedly spotted at the beachside bar known as The Sneak Joint in Mission Viejo, California on Sunday Sept. 4, where they tossed back a few shots of Johnny Walker.

"I couldn’t tell it was her at first," a Sneak Joint patron/eyewitness said. "It just looked like some hot couple making out, but then I realized it was Lady Gaga! Everyone went nuts! She was so sweet too -- she even signed some autographs." Even with a boyfriend, Gaga still nurtures the little monsters.

The pair followed that appearance up on Sept. 5, when they were holding hands on Mission Blvd, which is Mission Viejo’s main drag. "Her hair was a little messy. It definitely seemed like a 'morning after' situation,” the source said. “They are obviously totally into each other!”

Kinney, 30, is an avid surfer. Remember those photos of Gaga learning to surf? Maybe her new man is rubbing off on her? Kinney, who starred as Mason Lockwood on 'Vamire Diaries,' is also a native East Coaster, like Gaga, 25. He is from Pennsylvania but now resides in Mission Viejo, a beach town in Orange County.

We love this opposites attract pairing. With her outrageous look and his clean cut vibe, they are from two different worlds and maybe that makes all the difference.
