We're learning more about this terrible tragedy.
Well, well, well!
It looks as though that while Taylor Swift may have rung in 2013 by smooching Harry Styles on camera for the world to see - and One Direction Twitter fans to simultaneously meltdown over - the country cutie spent time earlier during the day with a DIFFERENT gentlemen entirely!
But don't worry, tweens!
No death threats against her necessary…because our darling Miz Swift was just catching up with her younger brother, Austin!
That's right, the delightful siblings enjoyed her pre-Times Square performance time in the Big Apple by grabbing dinner together, bundled up but all smiles as they stepped out of their hotel!
While it's always lovely to ring in the new year with your significant other, it's JUST as important to be surrounded by family members!
Glad you got to enjoy both for the start of 2013, gurl!
