It's finally confirmed! The rumors that have been circulating since July regarding Lady Gaga and supposed boyfriend The Vampire Diaries star Taylor Kinney are true; The couple went public with their relationship evident in paparazzi photos circulating the web.

Gaga, 25, and Kinney, 30, were spotted in rural California over the weekend where The Sun reported they were stayed at a friend's beach house nearby.

The happy couple was photographed by The Sun strolling with their arms around each other, while Gaga wore a more conservative outfit than usual: a long leather jacket, shorts and lace-up stiletto boots.

Gaga was linked to Kinney back in July when they filmed her steamy video for You & I locking lips for the camera. Reports emerged shortly after saying the duo were moving their on-screen love evident in the music video to real life.

The couple was spotted again over Labor Day weekend holding hands in Mission Viejo, Calif. but Gaga has not, and still hasn't, publically addressed the topic of boyfriends.

You know, I don't talk about my love life, but I'm very happy, she was quoted as saying back in October.

Other rumors circulated that the couple was spotted in rural Pennsylvania looking for a home, after local CBS News affiliate WHP-TV claimed Kinney and Gaga were house hunting in Lilitz, nearby Lancaster in his hometown.

However, E! News confirmed it was just a rumor from the realtor of the 6,000-square-foot mansion Gaga was presumably looking to purchase.

It was a Sunday and I decided to go check on all my properties, Anne M. Lusk told E!. I usually dress really conservative, but on that day I was wearing my retro coat and my long blond hair was straight and down.

I don't even look like her, Lusk said, referring to Gaga who was spotted at a nearby café in Kinney's hometown, where the couple was reportedly visiting for the holiday weekend.

According to E!, Lusk has received over 150 inquiries about the $1.69 home in Lancaster County since Gaga was rumored to be interested.
