Jake Gyllenhaal flirted with Camilla Belle — the same girl Joe Jonas dumped Taylor Swift for! How do you handle such a horrible situation?

Revenge is a dish best served cold, and Jake Gyllenhaal is being downright icy if there’s truth to his latest reported conquest. The hunky Love and Other Drugs star apparently indulged in some recent heavy flirting with Camilla Belle, the arch-nemesis of ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift. Betrayal! How should Taylor have reacted after hearing about such an obvious betrayal?

With his breakup from Taylor still fresh in mind, Jake reportedly made the cruelest decision possible in chatting up Camilla at a Jan. 15 party. If you’ll remember right, Camilla is also the girl Taylor’s ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas dumped her for and the inspiration behind her song “Better Than Revenge.”

Unfortunately, there’s literally nothing Taylor can do to improve the situation. She can’t tell Jake how much his betrayal hurts her, and she can’t confront Camilla. The only thing to do is hold her head up high and bravely pretend it’s not affecting her — which is exactly what she’s doing.

If anyone asks her how she feels about the two, the best — and easiest thing to say — would simply be: “I think they’re a good fit.” Don’t say it bitterly or with heavy sarcasm — keep it vague and ambiguous, leaving others wondering how your’e really feeling.

This isn’t a great situation to find yourself in, but at least you’ll be secure in the knowledge that your breakup WAS the right thing for you in the end. Any man that would flirt with your arch-enemy isn’t a man you want to be dating!

I just think Jake was trying to do some damage control. Apparently he does not want to end up in one of Taylor’s awesome songs, so he realized that after being a jerk with his actions he needed to make sure he still stayed out of Taylor’s lyrics. Player!

Well, you know what? That’s what happens when you write songs as a way to take revenge.

But Jake G is definitely gay! There relationship was a cover. In fact I think anything involving him and a woman, including this rumour, is sent out by his reps to make him look straight.

Are you kidding you have no idea why someone would not date a beautiful young woman, like TS? THINK alittle bit, perhaps Taylor has better standards and alittle more morals then some stars have in Hollywood. Perhaps she doesn’t feel like men such a JM and JG would want a committment or serious relationship BUT maybe she not ready for a casual sexual affairs. I wish Taylor the best and hold on Taylor a man will come along someday who will see no other woman but you! {THIS IS JUST MY OPINION but men are ———, }

Someone has got to start asking the obvious question…why are all these guys dumping her?

There has got to be something very, very odd about her that’s being kept quiet (as it should be…gentlemen should tell no tales).
