In February 2020, Lady Gaga shared that she had found love with new man Michael Polansky.

According to LinkedIn, Polansky is the CEO of San Francisco-based Parker Group which is the organisation run by the entrepreneur Sean Parker, who founded music service Napster and was formerly president of Facebook. If you have a good memory, you might remember Parker was portrayed in the film The Social Network by Justin Timberlake.

Polansky is a Harvard alum, having studied Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the prestigious university in the early 2000s.

The relationship between Polansky and Gaga is relatively new. In October, the singer said she was a 'single lady' when at a hen do for her make-up artist.

Since then, the Grammy and Oscar winning singer has been sharing snippets of her relationship with fans.

Here's everything we know about their relationship, starting with the most recent update:

Gaga made the quotes when talking about the gratitude she feels after two men attacked her dog walker, Ryan Fischer in West Hollywood, before taking Koji and Gustav while she was in Rome shooting House of Gucci earlier this year.

They have since been returned and the people in connection with the attack were arrested.

February 27, 2020: Michael Polansky's Ex Writes Viral Piece On Finding Out Your Former Partner Is Dating Lady Gaga

We can all relate to having a little pry into our ex's new partner, right?

Whether it's a guilty Instagram peek or a looking them up on Facebook, it's pretty much universally accepted to find out more about the person your ex has moved on, with regardless of the circumstances around your break up or if you have moved on yourself or not. A combination of curiosity, intrigue and other factors just takes us to their Instagram profile, whether we like it or not.

However, imagine if you didn't need to actively try to find out what the deal was with your ex's new flame because they were a world famous global icon. Imagine if your ex became Lady Gaga's boyfriend?

Well, that's what happened to the New York Times staff editor Lindsay Crouse, who has revealed the absurdity of the situation she found herself in recently when news that Lady Gaga had a new boyfriend travelled far and wide and she very much recognised the 'mystery man' in the photos.

Revealing that she dated the man in question for seven years - Crouse doesn't identify him but he is reported to be investor Michael Polansky - she explains how her phone went crazy with texts and calls from old friends asking if she'd seen the reports when her ex was first linked to the 'Born This Way' singer after the Super Bowl earlier this month.

'I scrolled through Instagram and saw a post from Lady Gaga: She was sitting in her new boyfriend's lap,' Crouse writes for the New York Times. 'Friends from college liked it - along with nearly three million others.'

Crouse goes on to explain that it is human nature which leads people to compare themselves against an ex's new significant other but, 'in this case, that's all upended. How do you compare yourself with Lady Gaga?'

Refreshingly, Crouse has learned a valuable and positive lesson from her ex moving on with a hugely admired, formidable and successful woman.

'Lady Gaga is amazing,' the editor notes. 'Comparing yourself with her is incredibly motivational and I recommend you try it, regardless of how you relate to who's dating her.'

Crouse explains how this new found motivation led her to indulge in buying a brand new dress, slightly above her budget, because 'why should I accept less than Lady Gaga?' This motivation also led her purchase a large coffee rather than her usual medium, and forward a praiseful email to her boss.

A lesson that even if our ex isn't dating an Oscar-winning star, we can all learn from Crouse's wise words.
