Taylor Lautner & Taylor Swift split!


Oh no! Young love, so heartbreaking. Us Weekly is reporting that Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner are totally over. Apparently, Lautner was all over Swift, and Swift was like “I’m on tour so can you just chill out?” Which is kind of cool, because I thought their dynamic was different – I thought she was the one who was more into him, but I’ll buy this new dynamic, that Swift did the dumping because Lautner cared too much and she couldn’t handle it. Oh, the Twihards will be upset!

So much for the two Taylors finding love.

After three months of dating, country singer Taylor Swift and New Moon star Taylor Lautner have split, UsMagazine.com has learned.

“It wasn’t really developing into anything, and wasn’t going to, so they decided they were better as friends,” a source close to Swift, 20, tells Us. “There was no chemistry, and it felt contrived.”

The pair — who met on the set of the romantic comedy Valentine’s Day — first sparked rumors of a romance when she hugged him at her October 9 concert in Rosemont, Illinois. They have since been spotted on several wholesome dates — like their frozen yogurt date at Menchie’s alongside Swift’s mom earlier this month — and have each coyly alluded to their relationship on separate Saturday Night Live hosting gigs.

However, the relationship officially fizzled when Lautner, 17, flew to Nashville for Swift’s birthday party on Dec. 13, a friend of the singer reveals.

“He liked her more than she liked him,” the source tells Us. “He went everywhere he could to see her, but she didn’t travel much to see him.”

Lucky for Lautner, the split won’t inspire angry songs like those written about ex Joe Jonas — who dumped Swift during a 27-second phone call in 2008.

“They plan to stay friends,” the source says.

In fact, Swift — whose friend says she is a “hopeless romantic” who “wants everything she writes about” in her songs — will likely reunite with the Twilight hunk when they begin promoting Valentine’s Day, out Feb. 12.

Swift’s rep had no comment. Lautner’s rep could not be reached.

See, now Kristen Stewart can start dating Lautner, and then Sparkles will get jealous and then it will be like the books came true, right? Right?!? No, I get it. They’re young and they don’t need to have everything figured out and settled and everything right at this moment. Plus, it might have been the kiss of death to do all of that couple-talk stuff on Saturday Night Live. When the kids start talking about their stuff publicly, that means someone’s going to get upset. Do I have to pick sides on this one? It sounds like the breakup was amicable. Whatever. Team Swifty. I love that girl.

    I’m only 23, but I can’t imagine dating a guy so much younger than me…. Taylor is 20 and he is 17. He’s not even legally an adult. When you are young, age difference indicates a maturity level that still matters. Heck, it still matters for Demi and Ashton, he has her running around like a lovesick teenager and she’s fine with the immaturity. But Taylor seems like a very grownup mature girl, and probably realized her boyfriend was a lot younger and a lot dumber.

  2. fee says:

    They are both also crazy busy with work. They’re young. No need to get so serious with someone so soon. They both have plenty of time for that.

  3. Ann says:

    It was all PR.

  4. Beth says:

    I know she’s young but Swift doesn’t stay in relationships long. They are over in a couple of months.

  5. diva says:

    What is a 20 year old dating a teenager for in the first place? I didn’t realize he was so young. She also strikes me as very immature, all she talked about for months was how the Jonas brother broke up with her via text on all her interviews. Since she appears to have so many short term relationships she would be better off keeping them under wraps, it doesn’t look good for her image. He is technically a high school student and she would be a sophmore in college, not a good look.

  6. SolitaryAngel says:

    Gotta hand it to the boy–he knows class when he sees it! Swifty makes KStew look like a leftover baloney sandwich next to a glass of Pinot Grigiot!

    I never heard of Swifty until a few months ago, and have yet to hear her music, although I plan to rectify that situation ASAP–and the girl has truly grown on me. What a wonderful example of beauty, poise, grace and level-headedness!

    I haven’t been that disappointed since Paris Hilton split from Paris Latsis. What happened to heavenly magic?

  8. BitterBetty says:

    What Ann said.

  9. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named says:

    “I haven’t been that disappointed since Paris Hilton split from Paris Latsis. What happened to heavenly magic?”

    yeah, or when Tiny Tom and Penelope split… the very planets had aligned!

  10. raejillian says:

    i’m on team taylor – see that, that is some witty shit there! so smart!

  11. Jeane says:

    “I’m only 23, but I can’t imagine dating a guy so much younger than me…”

    Well he’s very mature for his age. I can tell because of his abs. It’s totally ok to date a minor if he’s really hot. It says so in the law, I’m pretty sure.
    So what if he just likes older women, that’s his fundamental right as an American. (call me Taylor)

  12. Obvious says:

    It’s really not that much of an age difference. She just turned 20 and he’ll be 18 pretty soon I believe.

    I love them together and apart. I’m glad it didn’t turn out into an all out war, or I might have to pick sides.

  13. Sumodo says:

    What Ann said. It was cute for 10 minutes, 5 for her on SNL, and 5 for him on SNL. I think Swifty finally realized the douche JUST STOOD THERE while Kanye dissed her on national TV. Could it have been Lautner’s opening monologue on SNL that did it? Or, maybe he Christmas shopped for her at Charlotte Russe instead of Chanel?

  14. nikki says:

    they were the new Toothy Tiles and his beard for me:too sad!(sarcasm)

  15. snowball says:

    @diva – other than Joe Jonas and Taylor, who else has she dated? I don’t follow the tabs much, but I didn’t think she’d been linked with anyone else.

    In her new video for “Fifteen” she looks so pretty, I’m considering hating her. But oh, the song sucks.

  16. anon says:

    lol at jeane. yes i believe there is a bit in the constitution entitled the jailbait hottie exclusionary clause

  17. Boombeeba says:

    I think they both just may be GAY (nothin wrong w that RIGHT;) A) TS plays guitar most girls that play guitar well including me tend to be lezzie or at least BI b) she “dated” Joe Jonas & that dude is hella gay lol c) I just can’t visualize TL ever puttin his man parts inside a female my gaydar went off on him yrs ago. I don’t care about the guys tho for MY SAKE I pray Taylor Swift is lezzie or At the very least BiCurious ;0) Ciao

  18. Snarf says:

    Looks like those Blind Items hit more than they miss. TL’s PR team is going to go into over-drive.

  19. danielle says:

    Yeah, that relationship had PR written all over it. I bought him way more with Selena Gomez.

  20. J-Lin says:

    This chick could easily be a Keebler elf!

  21. alecto says:

    I don’t see what the big deal in the age difference is. 20 year old guys date 17 year old girls all the time. it’s only an issue when the girl is older. btw i’m technically old enough to be TL’s mother and would so hit that. damn there’s something wrong with me. now i feel like a pedo (slinks in corner and holds head in shame)

  22. nj says:

    @ Sumodo- what was he supposed to do? He really is a young kid and Kanye is a full adult megastar. It isn’t fair to fault him for not knowing what to do. He was sixteen.
    If I were Kanye I would have called Lautner personally to thank him for not kicking my *ss on live television, because it would destroyed his career. Kanye would have never lived it down. And it would have been wrong for Lautner to do it, so I applaud his restraint. If Kanye had the fighting skills of Taylor Lautner he would be flashing it all over town!

  23. Iggles says:

    Hmm. It’s hard to break up if you were never a real couple in the first place! This showmance was so obvious..

  24. Iggles says:

    @ Boombeeba:
    I think they both just may be GAY (nothin wrong w that RIGHT;) A) TS plays guitar most girls that play guitar well including me tend to be lezzie or at least BI


    Playing an instrument is now an indicator of sexual orientation???

    This is a ridiculous comment. Plenty of straight girls play guitar. Thanks for the stereotypes. They’re so fun to read.. not.

  25. I Choose Me says:

    @jeane. Ha! I just sprayed my laptop screen with tea.

  26. Jane says:

    @Jeane…I choked my fried rice when I read your comment 😀 thank you, you made my day!!

  27. For Sooth? says:

    I guess my husband and I are the only people on the planet that have a hard time stomaching Swift. The fact that auto tune was on overdrive in the studio is the first nail. And then her crappy live performances don’t do her any good. Then the last nail was seeing her do her CMA sh*t with the pole and stripper hair twirl, etc. Disgusting.

    So showmance, real romance, whatever! I’m not digging her at all.

  28. Iggles says:

    For Sooth? – You aren’t alone. I am tired of the hype around this girl. It won’t be long before the backlash to begins..

  29. Steph says:

    For Sooth? – Agreed. Aside from that, bit weird that a 20 year old is dating a 17 year old, being 21, I can’t even picture something like that… aside from that, regardless of who did the breaking up, she seems like she would be fairly high maintenance, I think it’s just her look (or maybe her needy song content)

  30. jayem says:

    LMFAO at Jeane.

    I, too, can tell how mature a guy is by his abs. Age is just a number. A six pack is forever! (Semi-joking!!) 😉

  31. chris says:

    Ok, this was obviously just PR. It’s so weird that people thought this was real.

  32. Natasha says:

    Yeah I’m 24 and I’m so waiting for TL to turn legal so I can stop feeling dirty for wanting to hit that. lol. That said.. Team Swifty. Love her.

  33. Grace :) says:

    I don’t think I have ever been this happy :D. He is sooo too good for her, she is a very silly lady.
    But now happily Taylor Lautner will be single and ready to mingle =D.

  34. Taylor L sounds hes a wonderful person. He cares for the person he loves and its a shame that Taylor S would dump someone like Taylor L. To Taylor L: You have a wonderful heart with such love, and careness. Do you know how I know this is because you remind me of myself but please don’t waste your heart on a girl who doesn’t appricate you caring for her.

  35. games says:

    I found out there auditioning for being an extra in “It Never Is Over”

  36. I’m longing for Taylor Swift’s new album. Seems like ages since her previous one.

  37. Sugar says:

    I will NEVER dump a guy like TL!!! But TS felt it was for the best, probably… love them both. my favourt Taylors!
