American hit singer Taylor Swift and English actor Joe Alwyn have broken up after six years of dating.
The split news comes as Swift is traveling the country for her sold-out Eras tour, at which the actor hasn’t been spotted and a source close to Swift confirmed to Entertainment Tonight.
Swift began dating the Boy Erased actor in 2016.
The pair also began collaborating on music together over the pandemic, culminating in a Grammy Awards win. 2
020 sister albums Folklore and Evermore each included collaborations with Alwyn, who wrote several songs under the pseudonym William Bowery.
Folklore ended up taking home the 2021 Grammy for Album of the Year and Evermore was nominated for the same award at the 2022 ceremony.
During her acceptance speech, Swift gave a shout-out to the actor.
Alwyn is credited as a co-writer on “Betty” and “Exile” from Folklore and on “Champagne Problems,” “Coney Island,” and “Evermore” on Evermore.
Many of Swift’s 2017 album Reputation’s love songs — “Gorgeous,” “Call It What You Want” and “Delicate” — appeared to be inspired by Alwyn and the couple’s low-key relationship.
In August 2018, the stars were photographed holding hands on a rare public outing in London just one month after they retreated to Turks and Caicos for vacation.
Swift — who was also filming Cats at the time — skipped the Grammys and attended the BAFTAs instead with Alwyn.
They were also spotted partying with pals after the Oscars last February, with Swift posting a photo of her sparkly Ralph & Russo dress on the night of.
