After six years together, Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have broken up, shocking Swifties everywhere.
The couple, who appeared to have been solid, has yet to confirm the break-up themselves but multiple sources have “confirmed” the end of the relationship on their behalf.
Taylor and Joe reportedly broke up amicably a few weeks ago. According to a source, Joe was struggling with Taylor’s level of fame. The source told People,
“They had plenty in common and fell in love in a safe bubble while she was retreating from the world during Reputation. Then the pandemic hit, and they were locked down together and able to continue growing their relationship in this insulated way. But he didn’t really ‘know’ her yet outside of that bubble.”
The source added,
“Joe has struggled with Taylor’s level of fame and the attention from the public. The differences in their personalities have also become harder to ignore after years together. They’ve grown apart.”
(It’s worth noting that “sources” like this usually come from inside the celebrity’s own team so they can control the narrative without actually releasing a statement. But, of course, that’s merely conjecture at this point.)
Regardless of how or why the couple broke up, it does seem confirmed that Taylor and Joe are officially over.
So, in honor of their long relationship, let’s look back at some of their best fashion moments together. While the pair tried to minimize their public appearances together, the times they *did* appear in public gave us a window into their great couples style.
