The Most Heartbreaking Split of the Year: Taylor Swift & Joe Alwyn


Taylor Swift, a 33 year old American pop and country singer-songwriter, and Joe Alwyn, a 32 year old English actor, speculate they met at the 2016 Met Gala, and have been dating since then. Over the weekend it was confirmed that they ended their 6 year relationship and Swifties are in denial. According to People Magazine, “A source close to the couple told PEOPLE their breakup happened ‘weeks ago’”. Many sources are digging and trying to find out the reason for this heartbreaking split that no one expected. 

Speculation of the split rose when Alwyn was not seen at Swift’s shows. A source close to the two said that the split was due to a “difference in personalities”. Neither Joe or Taylor have commented on the breakup but, Taylor has switched her song “Invisible String” for “The 1” on her tours setlist. This song is about wishing things worked out with an ex.

UsWeekly article stated, “Then the pandemic hit, and they were locked down together and able to  continue growing their relationship in this insulted way. But he didn’t really ‘know’ her yet outside of that bubble.” The source continued adding, “Joe has struggled with Taylors level of fame and the attention from the public. The differences in their personalities have also become harder to ignore after years together. They’ve grown apart.”

Although the two are no longer together, they are still “friendly” as they claim it was a “mutual” breakup. Swift and Alwyn “grew apart”, an inside source stated. Could this mean a new album in the future?
