She ends partnership after learning the retail giant donated to a political candidate who was against gay marriage.

A bad romance: Lady Gaga and Target.

She has nixed a deal to sell a special edition of her upcoming album at the retail giant.
The Advocate reported Tuesday that the singer wasn't comfortable when she learned that Target donated corporate funds to MN Forward, a political action committee that supported antigay candidate Tom Emmer in his failed 2010 run for Minnesota governor.
Gaga previously Billboard that her relationship with Target was tied to their "reform ... and to redeem the mistakes they've made supporting those [antigay] groups."
A representative for the singer confirmed Wednesday that the two sides "came to a mutual decision to end their overall exclusive partnership a few weeks ago."
