So sad! Jake couldn’t handle all the attention he was getting from his relationship with Taylor, so he had to break it off after two short months!

We can’t believe Jake Gyllenhaal had the nerve to break up with America’s sweetheart, Taylor Swift, after trying so desperately to win her heart, but an insider says he couldn’t handle the age difference and the publicity!

“Jake reached out to her and started all of this, but now he’s not acting as interested,” a source told US Weekly.  “He said he wasn’t feeling it anymore and was uncomfortable with all the attention they got. Jake cares about her, but [the publicity] was a lot for him. He wants to keep his private life private, and that’s hard to do dating Taylor.”

Jake, 30, and Taylor, 21, started dating in October and quickly fell head over heels, even spending Thanksgiving weekend together in Brooklyn and Nashville. Unfortunately, Jake also wasn’t comfortable dating such a young girl.

“He also said he could feel the age difference,” the source said. “Taylor is really upset. We told her not to move so fast with this but she didn’t listen.”

We can’t even imagine how surprised Taylor must have been to get dumped. After all, Jake jumped through hoops trying to win her heart, even going as far as to buy her a guitar, rent out an entire movie theater for a date and buy her a $100,000 bracelet for her 21st birthday!

He’d better watch out…if there’s one thing Taylor’s good at doing, it’s getting revenge. We can’t wait to hear the song she pens about this!
