TAYLOR Swift and her longtime partner have split, and fans believe there were plenty of signs he was unfaithful.
Taylor, 33, and Joe Alwyn, 32, started dating in 2016, but they’ve kept their nearly seven-year relationship strictly private.
The pair have kept themselves so private that Joe refused to speak to British Vogue about Taylor in 2018.
The combination of their extreme privacy and the sudden split has left Swifties wondering what could have happened.
According to Entertainment Tonight – the first news site to report the shocking news, citing an unnamed source – the couple split “a few weeks ago,” which was then confirmed by People.
“It wasn’t dramatic,” ET was told. “The relationship had just started. That is the reason [Joe] was not seen at any show.”
The Sun, meanwhile, was told that Taylor flew to London earlier this month and is said to have spent a quiet Easter with Joe, who has been busy filming his latest film – assuming she had a break in her touring schedule.
Since the abrupt split, fans have started scouring the internet for any signs heralding the split — and many of the theories have suggested that Joe cheated on Taylor.
A dummy article was posted on social media accounts on April 11, which helped fuel rumors surrounding the affair.
The blind article explained: “The A+-listed singer herself hit back by throwing the foreign-born actor under the bus over his lack of a career.
“Will she go really deep and talk about the cheating or save it for new music?”
The dummy item was transferred from a T-Swift fan account on Twitter, who wrote: “Joe cheated on Taylor after a crazy day and night blind item. Could that be true?!”
This new information prompted other fans to read up on Taylor’s performances on her Eras tour, particularly her surprise songs.
After the split, her surprise song at her concert in Houston, Texas was her hit You’re Not Sorry.
The song is about Taylor refusing an apology from a previous partner after they are proven to be liars.
Some fans blamed Joe for song selection, writing on twitter, “You’re Not Sorry as a surprise song, what did you do Joe Alwyn?”
TURN YOUR BACK TO JOE
After the news spread among Taylor’s friends and fan base, Joe began to lose a lot of support.
Fans started turning against him based on their own theories when a Twitter user allegedly: “Not only did Joe Alwyn cheat, but Taylor only found out this week.
More fans have been digging into Joe, curating a list of all the celebrities who have unfollowed him since his split from Taylor.
As of today, the roster includes her brother Austin Swift along with close friends Ryan Reynolds, the HAIM sisters, Lena Dunham, Lily Aldridge, Martha Hunt, Gigi Hadid, Claire Winter and Ashley Avignone.
FUEL FROM TAYLOR
Taylor herself has added plenty of fuel to the breakup rumors while using her stadium tour as an international stage to share her grief.
Knowing that her fans are picking apart every word she says and every move she makes while she’s on the hunt for Easter eggs, Taylor hasn’t hidden her feelings about the situation.
A video from the show last night in Houston, where she also performed You’re Not Sorry along with the breakup ballad Wonderland, has gone viral because of Taylor’s atypical attitude.
During her song “Look What You Made Me Do,” Taylor is joined onstage by the other versions of herself representing her past alums.
In 2019, the singer released the album Lover about her relationship with Joe.
The romantic album is very upbeat and clearly shows Taylor’s love for her now-ex-boyfriend and how much she enjoyed their relationship.
However, during last night’s show, Taylor approached the lover version of herself – played by a backup dancer – and called the lover version a loser.
In the Video taken by fansthe singer can be seen charging at Lover Taylor while forming an “L” with her index finger and thumb and raising it to her forehead.
Emma Laird, 24, is a Scottish actress who just got sucked into Taylor and Joe’s drama, but not without reason.
The actress drew a lot of criticism for posting a picture of Joe, who is also her The Brutalist co-star, on Instagram.
She posted the photo on Tuesday amid a large Instagram carousel full of photos she took in March.
The photo she posted of Joe was of him on a big green scooter and she captioned the set with a heart.
Though her comments section on the post has since been deleted, at one point it was filled with a lot of hate mail from Swifties.
On her previous Instagram posts, Emma’s comments sections are bombarded by fellow Swifties apologizing to the actress on behalf of their more dramatic peers.
Speaking exclusively to the US Sun, a source said: “Emma has been there for Joe since news broke of his split from Taylor.
“Joe struggles with fame and enjoyed hanging out with Emma in Hungary where he wasn’t recognised.”
