Taylor Swift’s ex Joe Alwyn breaks silence on split, says relationship was ‘long, loving, fully committed’

Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn has broken his silence about their breakup, more than a year after the pair split.

The 33-year-old actor and the 34-year-old pop star, who were notoriously private about their relationship, ended their relationship in April 2023 after more than six years together.

During the interview Sunday Times Style, Alwyn spoke about the couple’s breakup when asked if he’d listened to Swift’s latest album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” which many fans believe contains lyrics that allude to their relationship and its breakup.

“When I thought about what I was going to say, I hoped everyone could empathize. This isn’t a direct answer to your question, but I’m just thinking about what I want to say,” Aliwyn said, continuing, “I hope everyone can empathize and understand the difficulties that come with the end of a long, loving, committed relationship that lasted over six and a half years.”

“This is a difficult thing to deal with,” he added. “What’s unusual and extraordinary about this situation is that suddenly after a week it became public and the outside world was able to intervene.”

In April 2023, a source confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Alwyn and Swift had split, saying that it “wasn’t anything dramatic” and that the breakup was “amicable.”

“The relationship had just come to an end,” the source added, explaining that the former couple’s breakup is why Aliwyn has not attended any of Swift’s Eraser tour shows.

“So something very real is suddenly thrust into the very unreal space of the tabloids, social media and the press, where it can be dissected, speculated about and distorted beyond recognition,” he said. “And the truth is, in that last respect, there will always be a gap between what is known and what is said.”

“That made sense to me,” Alwyn added.

“It was never something that should have been commercialized and I don’t see any reason to change that now,” Alwyn said. “And this is a little over a year ago now, but I’m blessed to be in a really great place in my life professionally and personally, and I feel really good.”

Alwyn will next be seen in Yorgos Lanthimos’ dark comedy anthology film “Kinds of Kindness,” which also stars Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Hunter Schafer, Hong Chau and Mamoudou Athieh.

“Kindness of Kindness” will have its world premiere at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival and will be released in theaters on June 21st.

“Given the level of fuss and scrutiny surrounding my past relationships, I think people can understand why I wouldn’t want to open the door to that right now,” Alwyn said.

Swift is currently dating Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, 34. The two began dating last summer and went public with their relationship in September.
