[ad#300 x 250 L-side]Well, it seems you blink once and it’s suddenly all over! The very recent hot and heavy romance between actor Jake Gyllenhaal and singer Taylor Swift has apparently ended almost as quickly as it began. Taylor, BTW, will appear live in Atlanta July 9th and 10th at Philips Arena. This may not be shocking news to many fans who believed the couple’s relationship doomed from the get-go thanks to the 9-year age difference. Even though it may not be surprising news, the two of them did seem very into each other.
What happened to Taylor and Jake?
Apparently, the breakup had nothing to do with the vast age difference, in spite of what many fans believe. Sources say that Jake initiated the break up and that he did so because he wasn’t comfortable with all the media attention the relationship was attracting. This might make sense because Jake has been through all this before. He’s dated other high-profile stars, including Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, and Kirsten Dunst, so he knows a thing or two about media attention. So does Taylor, for that matter.
Sources close to Taylor claim that she is completely devastated by the break up, and Jake may not be doing so hot, either. Jake recently presented an award at the Palm Springs Film Festival Gala to ex Natalie Portman, and he apparently had grown a massive beard and seemed very withdrawn and quiet the entire time.
Knowing Taylor the way we do, you can bet that one of the next songs she writes will be about Jake – and that she’ll probably have a new piece of eye candy on her arm to replace him very soon.
