Farewell, Swyllenhaal. It seems the publicity generated by their relationship was too much for Jake.
It looks like Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal will be drinking their decaffeinated soy lattes by themselves from now on. Despite a plethora of coffeehouse
photo ops dates over the past couple of months, the couple has reportedly called off their romance.
According to reports, Swyllenhaal broke up just before the holidays, as both were spotted in different parts of the country (Taylor in Nashville, Jake in New York,) ringing in 2011 separately. And, thanks to US Magazine, we now know that it was Jake who did the dumping. 9 Reasons Jake Gyllenhaal Should Dump Taylor Swift
"Jake reached out to her and started all of this, but now he’s not acting as interested," said a Team Taylor insider. "He said he wasn't feeling it anymore and was uncomfortable with all the attention they got. He also said he could feel the age difference. Taylor is really upset. We told her not to move so fast with this but she didn't listen."
However, Team Jake countered the claims that he was an insensitive, older dude with: "Jake cares about her, but [the publicity] was a lot for him. He wants to keep his private life private, and that’s hard to do dating Taylor." Jake Gyllenhaal To Taylor Swift: Meet Me In Paris?
We'd like to think that Jake took our advice and realized that Taylor was waaay too young for him - although some people think that their relationship was concocted in a Hollywood PR office, solely to help Jake promote Love and Other Drugs and Taylor to schill her new album.
Either way, we guess we'll have to wait until Taylor writes an angsty ballad about Jake on her next CD in order to gain more insight into what happened between these two.
