Jake reportedly drove 200 miles to Nashville to win Taylor back face-to-face after realizing he behaved like a jerk!
We already told you that exes Jake Gyllenhaal, 29, and Taylor Swift, 21, had a secret rendezvous in Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 19 — but a new report from In Touch magazine reveals why! According to a source close to the couple, Taylor was heartbroken after seeing photos of Jake flirting with Joe Jonas‘ ex-girlfriend Camilla Belle, and it made Jake realize the error of his ways. The source says Jake was so determined to see Taylor that he drove 200 miles to Nashville in a rental car when his connecting flight from Memphis was delayed!
“He didn’t want to stand her up,” the source tells the mag. “It was like a romantic movie.”
As much as we’d all like to believe Jake and Taylor are just another Hollywood showmance — and I’m still not totally convinced — it’s beginning to sound like the real deal. Considering all of Taylor’s songs are about finding her knight in shining armor, Jake might just be the one to give her the fairytale ending she’s been dreaming of.
