Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn End Six-Year Relationship on Amicable Terms
After six years of dating, Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have reportedly split, according to a source close to the couple. The breakup news comes as Swift continues her sold-out Eras tour without the actor. Sources say that the uncoupling was amicable and not dramatic. However, the relationship had run its course, with Alwyn not spotted at any of Swift’s recent shows, which was reportedly a sign that trouble was on the horizon.
Swift and Alwyn have always kept their relationship private, with the famously private couple deflecting engagement rumors and sharing little about their life. Yet, despite their low-key approach, the couple had a strong bond and collaborated on several musical collaborations, including songs on Swift’s Grammy-winning albums “Folklore” and “Evermore.”
During her Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions film, Swift opened up about their collaboration, revealing that the couple’s love of sad songs brought them together. In addition, many of Swift’s love songs from her 2017 album “Reputation” were also believed to be inspired by Alwyn and their relationship.
Throughout their relationship, Alwyn maintained his commitment to privacy, avoiding speaking about their courtship to the press. In an interview with Total Film, he said, “I just don’t feel it’s something I want to offer up to be picked apart by people who don’t know about it, and it’s just not theirs to have.”
Swift and Alwyn were last seen together in public in New York City last fall, and their last public vacation was in the Bahamas last summer. Despite their recent appearances, the couple had been dating since 2016 and had weathered the ups and downs of their respective careers. With no red-carpet appearances or public displays of affection, the end of their relationship may shock fans who saw them as a strong and steady couple.
Neither Alwyn nor Swift has commented publicly on the split.
