Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello aren’t the only burgeoning couple having public makeout sessions, it seems. People reports that Lady Gaga was seen kissing audio engineer Dan Horton "multiple times" during the two’s Los Angeles brunch outing on Sunday.

People has photos of one of the passionate kisses here. The outlet also noted that multiple sources said that Gaga and Horton "appeared to be more than friends" and kissed more than once during the outing.

One source said the two dined for about an hour and seemed to be very deep in conversation. “They were kissing as they spoke really close up,” that source said. “Ironically, she had a table in the front near the sidewalk, so she was clearly okay with being seen. She seemed very happy when interacting with the guy she was with.”

Horton is 37, People notes, and according to his LinkedIn, he has worked for Gaga as a monitor engineer for the past nine months. He has also been a monitor engineer for Camila Cabello, Bruno Mars, and Luis Miguel.

This is Gaga’s first big public romance since she and her ex-fiancé Christian Carino ended their relationship in February. A source told People at the time that "it just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end. There’s no long dramatic story."

Gaga and Carino were first reported to be dating in February 2017 by People. Their engagement was first reported in November 2017 by Us Weekly, but Gaga didn't confirm it until October 2018. She acknowledged their split in June when performing "Someone to Watch Over Me."

"So, last time I sang this song, I had a ring on my finger," she said. "So tonight will be different."
