The reason for the secrecy, the source said, is due to all the attention that greeted Swift's now-ended relationship with Tom Hiddleston."Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship," the source said.Taylor Swift has a new boyfriend: the 26-year-old British actor Joe Alwyn, according to The Sun and confirmed by People.Alwyn, best known for his starring role in 2016's "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk," still lives at home "with his mum and dad," according to The Sun's report.
“I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy [Perry] ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry.“It’s very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly,” he explained. Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure. It clearly wasn’t right, so it ended.” Swift has since moved on from Harris.“The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than the relationship itself. It took me a minute to realize that none of that matters. She’s now reportedly dating 26-year-old British actor Joe Alwyn.She was a co-chair of the 2016 Met Gala — the same night she famously danced with Hiddleston — but she skipped the 2017 one entirely.Keeping things lowkey shouldn't be a problem with Alwyn.This would give Taylor the best sales week for a song since Adele sold 653,000 downloads of “Hello” in the song’s second week back in November 2015.
