Why Did Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn Break Up?
Their love story has captivated Swifties for six years, ever since the pair were first linked in 2017 when they hit it off during her Reputation era.
Many fans even speculated that the actor was "the one" and that the couple would go on to have kids and live happily ever after.
The Reason for Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn's Breakup Revealed:
According to People, the main reason for the split was "differences in their personalities," which were exacerbated by Swift's "level of fame."
"They've had rough patches before and always worked things out, so friends thought they would take some time apart but eventually come back together," a source told the publication.
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."
While this was perhaps one of Swift's most private relationships to date, the source told People that the pair bonded over their shared creativity and even wrote songs together, several of which have appeared on Swift's albums. Most recently, Alwyn co-wrote the Midnights track "Sweet Nothing."
Swift may have even hinted at the breakup during one of her recent Eras Tour concerts when she swapped "Invisible String" for "The 1," a breakup track.
