‘I Sac­ri­ficed Ev­ery­thing For You’

She’s set to re­lease her new al­bum in a mat­ter of weeks, but why is Tay still hid­ing?

Look (UK) - - NEWS STORY -

If there’s one celeb who’s been a bit rogue this year, it’s def­i­nitely Tay­lor Swift. Out of the pub­lic eye and ab­sent on­line, when Tay­lor re­leased two sin­gles last month (and deleted all her so­cial me­dia posts), it started to make sense. One month on and Tay is still keep­ing her­self to her­self. Ac­cord­ing to a source speak­ing ex­clu­sively to Look, Tay­lor and boyfriend Joe Al­wyn have hit rocky ground and it’s said to be tak­ing up a lot of Tay’s at­ten­tion.

‘Joe wants to slow the ro­mance down a lit­tle,’ ex­plains a close pal.‘he adores her, but this is a guy with a ton of op­tions open to him right now. He’s just landed roles in two ma­jor films and is be­ing hand­picked by some of the big­gest tal­ent agen­cies in Europe, as well as Amer­ica. He feels it’s im­por­tant to put him­self out there in­stead of com­ing across like this hid­den-away boyfriend of Tay­lor Swift. ‘He’s as­sured her this isn’t the end, but he needs to move out and get his own place in Hol­ly­wood, as well as New York. Nat­u­rally Tay­lor feels like she’s sac­ri­ficed a lot for him and is in­creas­ingly con­cerned that this could spell the end. But Joe’s try­ing to smooth things over by spoil­ing her with date nights, as well as ask­ing for her help in find­ing a new pad.’

While Tay, 27, and 26-year-old Joe have re­port­edly been dat­ing in se­cret for around 12 months, Tay­lor is said to be fret­ting over how their re­la­tion­ship might change once her up­com­ing al­bum has dropped. The al­bum, Rep­u­ta­tion, will launch on 10 Novem­ber, with sev­eral songs re­port­edly based on her

re­la­tion­ships with exes – Calvin Har­ris, Tom Hid­dle­ston and Harry Styles. Ba­si­cally, watch out if you’ve ever pi**ed Tay­lor off.

‘Aside from when she’s been record­ing, Joe’s had Tay­lor all to him­self since they got to­gether,’ says a close pal. ‘But Tay­lor’s been in the game long enough to know that as soon as her al­bum drops, ev­ery­thing will change for them. Joe has never ex­pe­ri­enced this level of fame and she doesn’t know how he’ll cope with the pub­lic­ity ap­pear­ances and the tour­ing. It’s a lot to deal with. She wouldn’t be sur­prised if their re­la­tion­ship runs its course in the next three months – but friends say she’s just overly con­cerned be­cause so many of her pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ships have been ru­ined by fame.’

But it does seem as though Tay­lor is do­ing things dif­fer­ently this time around. Her re­la­tion­ship with Joe has ba­si­cally been a se­cret for what’s es­ti­mated to be around a year – and even now, they’re still keep­ing things un­der wraps as much as they can.

A cou­ple of weeks ago, the pair jet­ted over to Lon­don to visit Joe’s family and friends. They’re said to have stayed at pal Cara Delev­ingne’s Chiswick pad in a bid to re­main as low-key as pos­si­ble and avoid me­dia at­ten­tion.

‘Tay­lor doesn’t feel ready to go ul­tra­pub­lic just yet,’ re­veals an in­sider. ‘But Joe’s frus­trated and would pre­fer them to just live life more nat­u­rally, not tip-toe­ing around in se­cret the whole time.

‘There’s also the fact she’s a lit­tle scarred by cer­tain peo­ple in her squad, who leaked in­for­ma­tion about her last ro­mance with Tom Hid­dle­ston.’

It can’t be easy for Tay­lor. De­spite be­ing off the radar for much of the year, she has been record­ing a new al­bum and deal­ing with the re­cent sex­ual as­sault trial.

She may have had some down­time, but in other ways she’s had a pretty full-on year, too. Guys, we’re root­ing for you!
