Singer Taylor Swift and actor Joe Alwyn have broken up after six years of dating.
An insider close to the couple confirmed the news to entertainment outlet People magazine, saying the split was amicable and “it was not dramatic”.
The development comes as Swift is travelling the country for her sold-out ‘Eras’ tour, at which the “Boy Erased” actor hasn’t been spotted.
At the time when the duo was dating, Alwyn co-wrote two songs on Taylor Swift’s album Folklore (released in 2020), which won the British actor-songwriter Grammy award for album of the year. He also co-wrote three songs on Swift’s album Evermore (released in 2020).
Taylor Swift’s song “Lavender Haze” from her album Midnights (released in October 2022) was inspired by her relationship and romance with Alwyn after she learned the meaning of the phrase from an episode of Mad Men. The Love Story singer goes on to confirm this on an Instagram video she posted in early October before Midnights album’s release.
