After six years together, Taylor Swift and actor Joe Alwyn have called it quits.
a close friend of Taylor’s confirmed the information to CNN “Recently, Taylor and Joe called it quits. They simply drifted apart, but they still want to be friends.”
CNN has contacted Swift and Alwyn’s representatives for comment. The information was first reported by Entertainment Tonight.
Swift and Alwyn were first mentioned as a couple in 2016. Swift is currently on her “Eras Tour.”
Taylor Swift, a Grammy winner, and Alwyn were able to keep their romance largely a secret, but in typical Taylor Swift fashion, the singer dropped a few hints about Alwyn through her music along the way.
Swift revealed on her Instagram in January that “Lavender Haze,” a track from her 2022 album, had been released.
Swift confirmed the true identity on the Disney+ documentary “folklore: the long pond studio sessions” that same year, where she said Alwyn “plays piano beautifully and he’s always just playing and making things up and kind of creating things.”
“Folklore” ended up winning a Grammy for album of the year in 2021, marking Alwyn’s first Grammy win.
There was also speculation in 2019 the then-couple were engaged when Swifties picked up on some bridal-leaning lyrics in “Lover,” the title track off the album she released that year.
“If I had a pound for every time I think I’ve been told I’ve been engaged, then I’d have a lot of pound coins,” Alwyn told WSJ Magazine in 2022, coyly adding “I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.”
