Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have called it quits after six years together, according to a source who spoke with Page Six. The news of their breakup comes as a surprise to many fans, who had been following their relationship since they first got together in 2016.
The source claims that the breakup wasn’t dramatic and that the relationship had simply run its course. Swift has been on her “Eras Tour” since March 17, and fans have noticed that Alwyn has been missing from the crowds. A friend of the couple had previously told People that Alwyn was super supportive of Swift’s career and would travel with her when he could.
Throughout their time together, Swift and Alwyn had been the subject of engagement rumors, with Swift even wearing what looked like an engagement ring in her 2020 Netflix documentary, “Miss Americana.” However, the speculation was never confirmed, and some fans even believed that they had secretly tied the knot at some point, which the source denies.
The couple met at the 2016 Met Gala and started dating a few months later, but their relationship did not go public until 2017. They were very private about their romance, despite fans’ speculation about which songs were about Alwyn.
In her 2020 documentary, Swift explained that she and Alwyn had decided together to keep their relationship private. “Even though [my public image in 2016] was really horrible, I was happy,” she said. “But I wasn’t happy in the way I was trained to be happy. It was happiness without anyone else’s input. We were just… happy.”
Swift’s list of exes includes Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Harry Styles, Calvin Harris, and Tom Hiddleston.
Although the breakup may come as a surprise to many fans, the source claims that there is no bad blood between Swift and Alwyn. As they both move forward with their careers and personal lives, it seems that the two will remain on good terms.
