The First Pictures of Taylor Swift & Her New Boyfriend Have Arrived
You may’ve noticed that Taylor Swift has been taking a break from the spotlight this year. Apart from her Fifty Shades Darker collaboration with Zayn Malik, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” she’s been completely M.I.A. After the hit her reputation took in 2016, though, it’s hard to blame the 27-year-old “New Romantics” singer for taking a step back.
BUT, now that everyone knows she has a new boyfriend, all her plans to stay under the radar are out the window.
In May, reports began circulating that the blonde beauty was quietly (but seriously) dating rising British actor Joe Alwyn. “Taylor and Joe are the real deal,” reported The Sun, “this is a very serious relationship… [A]fter what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet.”
When the news first broke, word had it that Taylor wore disguises to maintain her anonymity when the pair met up. But it looks like she’s ditched the idea now, ’cause she was recently spotted with her new bae on more than one occasion. The first time was on Thursday, June 1: Photographers caught Taylor and her 26-year-old man boarding a private jet out of the United Kingdom. Then, on Saturday, June 3, the two were spotted on a coffee date in Nashville, Tennessee.
According to E! News, “[Swift and Alwyn] are still in the beginning stages with learning about each other as she is trying to take this relationship slower than the past ones.”
Before Joe — or even Tom or Calvin — Taylor racked up quite the dating timeline:
Clearly, this relationship actually happened since it ended with the breakup voicemail heard 'round the world. At least we got some good tunes out of it, though. ("Forever & Always" AND "Last Kiss.")
