The Fall Of Swiftenhaal: Why Taylor & Jake Broke Up!

| Filed under: Jake GyllenhaalLove LineTaylor Swift


We're still so sad to report that Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal are no longer an item. We really thought they were so cute together, but apparently, one half of the duo didn't agree.

Details behind the couples abrupt end are finally coming to light and sources are reporting it was Jake who ended things between them. We hear that their brief romance was becoming too much for Jake to handle, as he began to resent all the attention from the media. A source close to the pair explains:

"Jake reached out to her and started all of this, but now he’s not acting as interested. 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."

Another insider close to Jake added:

"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."

Aw, poor Swifty! Another broken heart that needs mending!

Just poor it all out into your music, bb! Nothing helps mend the sadness like another #1 album.

    great - now we gotta hear another song about what a dick the guy is and how innocent she is……….

  2. 2

    Swyllenhaal is a better name for them.

  3. 3

    Oh for goodness sakes, they were never an item. Good grief. It was just a bunch of hooey cooked up by their people. It served it's purpose and now it is terminated.

  4. 4

    hey you idiot, its "pour" not "poor" dumb fuck!!!

  5. 5

    Aww, poor Jake not wanting media attention. Maybe next time don't seek out another A-lister for romance.

  6. 6

    I called it on the age thing! And yeah I believe the thing with the publicity. He's more private about his private life like Ben Affleck and them. This would have been too much for someone like that, though she seems to thrive on her relationships being out there for the world to look at.

    Pulzzzzz! Gay gay gay. beard beard beard!!!!!

    Sorry, the publicity card doesn't work for me. They have all been dealing with the media and they have heard thru the media who the other is, was, and predicted whatevers. He is older than she is and had just gotten out of a serious relationship. Not the time to jump into a new romance with someone in the limelight unless you are trying to prove to the world that all is fine with you. DOUBLE MEDIA EXPOSURE! 2 stars for the price of one. Also, will someone please explain to me why even when someone famous goes out on a date with someone for lets say 2 or 3 times, they are already a couple in a relationship. Am I that old. I remember dating several guys
    at the same time for even 5 times until you know if you really had anything in common with them. Then you just picked the one you really liked or who like you and kept dating. It wasn't just instant relationship. Am I that old????

    Not hating on all of Taylor's success at all. Clearly she has figured out how to make great songs and sell tons of albums, but man, this chick comes across as being so immature. Love her music but she is starting to annoy me.

  11. 11

    His movie opening is over with, and another showmance bites the dust.

  12. 12

    Jake didn't want the attention and to keep his private life private?!? That's why he started dating country's biggest pop star who 10 years younger than he is??!? Riiiigggghht… great "sources" Perez.

  13. 13

    Well duh, I saw this one coming! He is too manly for her. He is not trying to be with a young little good girl. Although I like her, I just like him more and this was just an odd couple!

  14. 14

    ever heard of a publicity stunt? also, her hair is the worst!

  15. 15


    He loved the attention and got himself some younger ass…….he was old enough to be her older brother.

    any guy who dates a woman in their young 20's and he is over 35 isn't interested in a relationship…it is control or arm candy..

    guy is a tool

  16. 16

    It's poor. So stop freaking out and get a dictionary.

    I'm so over Taylor Swift. I think she'd be the most horrible person to be in a relationship with. I agree with what someone else said, she gets tiring and I think she's immature. I'm tired of her constant songs about douche bag guys. She needs to write a couple more nice ones. So over her.

  17. 17

    That was just WEIRD and CREEPY anyways….

  18. 18

    lol is anyone really surprised??? shes a child! he knew better than to start something with her in the first place.

  19. 19

    Totally saw this one coming and the publicity reason is lame. However, Taylor needs to have better taste in men. I find it interesting that most of the guys she ends up with end up breaking up with *her* and not the other way around…

    "…poor Swifty…" = correct since "poor" is an adjective
    "…poor it all out…" = incorrect. It should be "pour", which is a verb.
    I think it's an honest mistake though (typo).

    Re: April 20th – i agree. relationships shuld be private, but then again he knew what he was getting into…

  21. 21

    Ummmmm. HE'S GAY!!!!

  22. Laury says – reply to this


    I'm sorry but I'm not buying this crap. Jake knew was he was getting himself into when he started dating her, so don't give us that "too much publicity" bullshit. Everyone knew this wasn't gonna last. And don't feel bad for Taylor, she probably has enough material for an entire album.

  23. 23

    Jake's reason for breaking up sounds lame for me.
    He had enough of the little girl and movin' on.

  24. 24

    isn't it obvious
    they likely just collaborated over a movie soundtrack and that is all

  25. 25

    To translate Jake's words, "I knew her music was that of a high school girl, but only found out recently that she is actually a high school girl in regards to maturity". That's what he meant when he said he was noticing their age difference.

  26. 26

    Jakey , why dont u get a girl that's not a celebrity! that's easier! Like me by the way and yes im 28! so im 100% available!

  27. 27

    He's too old for her. I couldn't image what he would have in common with her. I think they are both great, but she needs someone closer to her age.

  28. 28

    wtf jake? taylor swift has been bestselling music artist in us for 2-3 years now. and publicity and exposure was a surprise for you? i never saw taylor freak out like you did calling the police for the paps. i guess she was the mature one in this relationship. lol

  29. uyeah says – reply to this


    After dating Reece he didn't see what was coming? I think it was more the age difference, or maybe he just wasn't that into her once he got to know her better.

  30. 30

    he hit it a couple of times and decdided it wasnt that great

  31. 31

    men SUCKS! the publicity thing it's an excuse, srsly thinking about being gay, taylor date me! I wont break ur heart haha

  32. 32

    Anytime you hear the words "source" and "insider", you know it's just some bored journalist making up quotes to sell a story. Sad these two didn't work out, even more sad that we're expected to believe all these obnoxious fake quotations.

  33. 33

    This was just a convenient excuse. He had paparazzi exposure when he was with Witherspoon. Everyone knows that Swift's just the hit it and quit it whore of Hollywood.

  34. 34

    Perez. First, you copy this crap word for word right out of Us Weekly. Second, this story has been very "confusing" from the beginning! This same magazine, and E! and all the rest, including YOU, have been telling us 'Jake and Taylor were together for her birthday cuddling' but now they weren't together for her birthday! They broke it off before then! You said he spend $100,000 on a private jet. Not true. Then there was that $10,000 guitar, and the $100,000 diamond bracelet. All not true!

    Now you pretend you feel bad, when you knew all along everything was a lie. So, no. I don't believe this story. I think it's convenient to dump on Jake. Since Taylor pays for your "sympathy." But I don't think there was ever anything much going on.

    I think Gwyneth Paltrow got them together,which she already admitted. And they checked each other out, and discovered there was nothing going on! If I was Jake I would be pissed, too at all the lies people're peddling. Taylor could have put a stop to the ridiculous rumors, but she didn't. She probably thought it was cool for people to believe her "boyfriend" was spending thousands of dollars on her. This taught me one thing. I will now put E! and US Weekly in the same category as you and your lies. None of y'all have any cred. I'm glad they broke up. She is a very immature 21 year old.

  35. 35

    Wait for it. On the next album she's going to release a song about how Jake Gyllenhaal is a prick.

  36. Xenu says – reply to this


    Taylor Swift needs to grow up and mature that also means talent wise. I like her songs but she needs to stop writing about the same teenage relationship crap over and over again.

    Want to hear a good country song, Listen to 8th of November by Big and Rich Swift need to write something of that caliber.

    Of all the teen stars, I think Demi Lovato seems in some ways to be more mature than Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, because she went through some hard stuff in life.

  37. 37

    KEEFER - I agree! LOL

  38. 38

    I hate Taylor anyway. She just dates all these high profile people for one thing: attention. Then, she writes songs about them…and to be honest, all these songs sound exactly the same. Besides, Jake looks better with me…even though I'm 18 hahaha

  39. 39

    oh come on, this showmance is no more because it did what it had to do: kept jake in the closet after the reese breakup and got the stink of sex-with-poop mayer off of taylor.

    done and done.

  40. 40

    Re: iloverickymartin – Yep I said the same thing about Taylor and Taylor, their "relationship" lasted about as long as the promo tour for New Moon

  41. 41

    Re: jones19 – Exactly! : )

  42. 42

    Did anyone really think this was going to last? Come on! The age difference killed it, especially since Taylor acts like she's 15. There was no way in hell they were going to make it, if it was even real in the first place.

  43. open says – reply to this


    poor vs pour.. just mentioning it.

    they were never going to make it anyway.. better sooner than later.

  44. 44

    doesn't strike you as odd that Taylor Swift is always dumped? And every failed "relationship" turns into big news and later, a new music? Honestly I think that maybe she's just a pain in the ass and it's just looking for sbjects to write lyrics that will give her more succes, or at least, more media time. If she was a decent girl, she would never exploit this subjects, she would cry in silence, or at least write a music without telling ou giving hints of who's about. Seriously, did you all noticed the atention she got when she started with that mambo jambo of "joe jonas broke up with me in a 27s call"? FAKE. SHE IS FAKE.

  45. 45

    He needs to date a non celebrity. I wonder if he ever has.

  46. 46

    She looks boring!

  47. 47

    this relationship was completely ridiculous. taylor swift is a child.

  48. 48

    Taylor has a 16 year old boy's body,so the lack of tits made Jake look for another girlfriend……. or maybe he is gay and only seeks publicity? all of his girlfriends are celebs

  49. 49

    This is so BS the whole thing, they were never together.. It was only for Taylor's album sales. My god people (i mean the media) are stupid!!! IT'S JUST FOR SELLING!!!

  50. 50

    well at least now i can get a new song on my ipod,

    loveyou taylor

  51. 51

    I*Love*Aizens*Dick[/re] apparantly you're the idiot, because it's POOR NOT POUR! Really?????? He feels bad for her, he's not pouring her a glass of water or something. Idiotic much? I think you are. And don't say I'm only saying this because I'm on the internet, because I would soooooo say it to your hypocritical idiotic face.

  52. 52

    Imagine that. A guy falling for a girl .. gets the girl.. them dumps her. he sounds like every guy out in the world playing these games. i doubt its the attention because ever since she hit the scene she was major. so how could this idiot not know better? i would be pissed too because he's obviously lying. i smell huge publicity stunt anyways. and the age thing.

  53. 53

    Re: dodgyend – Fail….as in your message.This is the first time Jake made a mistake by going out with a young attention whore.

  54. 54

    Too much publicity? Mhm. Ever thought of getting a non celeb Jake? Let alone someone who isn't one of the best-selling artists right now??? If this story is true, then he is full of bullshit! He knew what he was getting into! I kind of feel sorry for the girl. Any relationship she's involved in doesn't even last 5 months. Lmao.

  55. 55

    oddest couple ever, i feel he can do better than a newbie country star who really…doesnt have that much talent to begin with.

  56. @v@ says – reply to this


    Not to say the above is actually true of Jake, but the guys I knew who only liked the chase are mostly lonely bachelors now with no family. They behaved like lightweights, and now their personal lives are lightweight. Taylor should wait for someone who's all in.

  57. 57

    Everyone with hollywood ambitions…this includes Taylor Swift want all the media attention they can get. Swift is so annoying.

  58. 58

    Jake…do you realize what you've done??!! We'll be hearing about it in a couple of years.

  59. lolli says – reply to this



  60. 60

    she has great songs and all but seriously, she's getting annoying. and to think she learned from the whole john mayer thing like what she wrote on that 'dear john' song of hers.

  61. 61

    huh??? he didn't mind all the attention before so why does he now? weird

  62. 62

    I'm guessing she's a needy psycho and he had it!

  63. 63

    "Just poor it all out into your music"
    Seriously? That's just embarrassing……..
