Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have reportedly broken up after six years together; they first began dating at the end of 2016.
Entertainment Tonight first reported on Saturday and People magazine confirmed that Taylor and Joe ended their six-year romance “a few weeks ago.” The insider told ET (quote) “It was not a dramatic breakup. The relationship had just run its course. It’s why Joe hasn’t been spotted at any shows.”
According to Swifties, there were subtle signs hinting of the breakup during her recent Era concert tour dates. For one, It was never a good look that Joe failed to attend any one of the ERAS Tour shows. Then last weekend, Taylor swapped songs in the setlist and altered her stage props to communicate that Joe was on the outs.
