Pop icon Lady Gag was spotted donning a striking diamond ring on her left ring finger in April 2024, sparking rumors of an engagement with her boyfriend, Michael Polansky. Paparazzi spotted Gaga visiting a friend in West Hollywood but it was the massive diamond ring that caught everyone’s eye.

Since they went Instagram official at the Super Bowl in 2020, Lady Gaga and Michael, have been one of the most watchable duos. They even quarantined together during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, which, according to sources, only strengthened their bond.

Over the years, they’ve kept a relatively low profile while supporting each other’s charitable efforts—Polansky for a Cancer Institute and Gaga with her mental health advocacy through the Born This Way Foundation.

An insider revealed that there’s no rush for engagement as the couple ‘almost act like a married couple already.’ The chemistry between them is palpable, with Gaga often seen giggling and affectionate around him.

However, the newfound sparkle on Gaga’s finger isn’t the only topic making headlines. With the buzz around her possible engagement to her beau, a new question arises—Is there any familial connection between Michael and Roman Polanski, a controversial filmmaker? Is Michael Roman’s son?

Is Michael Polansky Related to Roman Polanski?

Despite the similarity in their last names, Michael and Roman are not related. Their background shows no familial ties or connections beyond the coincidence of their names. That being said, both of them do come from Polish ethnicity, so that’s one similarity. But that’s where it ends.

Both of their lives are rooted in entirely different careers and personal histories. While Polansky is involved in technology, Roman is a controversial filmmaker.

The rumor first began when a lot of fans started questioning if Michael was Roman’s son because of their age gap and Michael’s high profile status, something which generally comes when you come from an extremely famous family. But like we said, this correlation is unfounded.

About Michael:

He is a prominent figure in the world of technology and philanthropy. He holds the position of executive director at the Parker Foundation, which he co-founded in 2015 with Sean Parker, a notable figure associated with Napster and Facebook.

The foundation plays a significant role in supporting life sciences, global public health, civic engagements, and the arts. Polansky also serves on the board of the San Francisco-based Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, which funds research into cancer treatments.

Educationally, Polansky is an alumnus of Harvard University, where he studied applied mathematics and computer science, graduating in 2006.

His personal life gained media attention when he began dating the singer Lady Gaga around New Year’s 2020. Their relationship was confirmed following several public appearances, which increased Polansky’s visibility in the public eye.

About Roman:

Born Raymond Roman Thierry, he is an eminent director, producer, screenwriter, and actor with a career that has been both celebrated and controversial. Born in Paris in 1933 and raised in Kraków, Poland, Polanski survived the Holocaust and later entered the film industry. His notable works include films such as Rosemary’s Baby and Chinatown.

For his contribution, Polanski won numerous awards, including an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, and the Palme d’Or.

However, Polanski’s career has been overshadowed by his legal troubles stemming from a 1977 case where he was charged with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. He fled the United States in 1978 on the eve of his sentencing and has since lived in Europe, remaining a fugitive from the U.S. justice system.
