One source said that the couple broke up earlier this year. In January, Carrey and Gonzaga made their red carpet debut at the 2019 Showtime Golden Globes Nominees Celebration, just hours after it was reported that they were dating.

One day later, the couple attended the Golden Globe Awards together on Jan. 6, where Carrey was nominated for his work in the Showtime series Kidding. "I'm very lucky. I feel very lucky," Carrey told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet at the ceremony while gushing over his girlfriend. "She's not only beautiful, she's wickedly talented and amazing and smart."

"She’s incredible, unbelievable, wicked talent and amazing person," the comedian added to Extra, joking, "Not bad for a first date...I just want first base tonight, I’m not looking to take the field."

Gonzaga shared a photo from the weekend on Instagram, writing, "Most partial to this talented nominee. #goldenglobes."
