It’s back to the single life for Taylor Swift. The singer just broke up with her latest boyfriend, Tom Hiddleston, and we’re taking a trip down memory lane to relive all her past relationships. Check it out here!
Taylor Swift’s first public relationship was with Joe Jonas, 27, back in 2008, when he was at the peak of his career and they were only teenagers. Like most young love, it only lasted a few, blissful months, and then Tay revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that the boy bander broke up with her in a 27-second phone call. Ouch! She wound up writing the songs “Forever & Always,” “Better Than Revenge” and “Last Kiss” about the relationship.
While on the set of Valentine’s Day in 2009, the singer met Taylor Lautner, 24, and they took their on-screen romance into the real world. He was there for her after Kanye West’s infamous VMAs interruption, but Tay wound up breaking the actor’s heart when she ended things before the year was over. She apologized for that in “Back To December.”
After the breakup, Taylor began an under-the-radar romance with John Mayer, 38, which never went public until she released the scathing breakup song “Dear John” on her next album. Her relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, 35, was exactly the opposite at the end of 2010 — they almost seemed to be begging photographers to find them. Many songs on the 26-year-old’s album “Red” are about Jake, including “All To Well” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
Taylor didn’t date publicly until about a year and a half after her split from Jake, and she spent the summer and fall of 2012 with Conor Kennedy. Then, she quickly moved on to Harry Styles, 22, and they were practically inseparable for weeks — until an explosive fight over New Year’s brought things to a halt. He inspired songs like “Out Of The Woods,” “I Know Places” and “Style” on 1989.
After Harry, Taylor basically swore off dating, and instead, embraced her single life in New York City with her girl squad. It wasn’t until March 2015, when she got together with Calvin Harris, 32, that she decided to give it a go again. This was beyond a doubt her most serious relationship and lasted for 15 months, and the breakup at the end of May 2015 came out of nowhere! Tay wasted no time moving on,though, and was kissing Tom Hiddleston, 35, on the beach in Rhode Island just two weeks later. The romance was hot and heavy for a few weeks, but after just three months, this one ended, too.
Now, as far as we know, Taylor is single again for the first time in a year and a half — and if you ask us, it’s time she starts hitting the studio and getting an album out to tell us ALL about what she’s been up to!
