You’ll have to pardon me whilst I type thru my sad tears but … it is with the heaviest of hearts that I must pass along the news that the barely relationship between Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift is over. Yes, it’s sad I know … but according to People magazine, the couple called it quits last month. Awww. Jake and Taylor are dunzo, y’all!!
Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal are starting 2011 single. “They’re over,” a source tells PEOPLE about the short-lived relationship. “It ended last month.” No reason was given for a split, and the stars reps didn’t have immediate comment, but the two spent the holidays – and their birthdays – apart. Swift, 21, rang in 2011 in Nashville, solo, at a party, while Gyllenhaal, 30, was in New York, where he attended a closing party for Broadway’s Fela! on Jan. 2. While in the Big Apple, Gyllenhaal was also spotted dining with his mother at the Spotted Pig. After spending Thanksgiving weekend together, the two were last seen publicly together on Dec. 9 in Los Angeles.
Let’s have a moment of silence over the death of this sham, er, romance. I guess those photos of Taylor Swift lookin’ super sad as she roamed the streets of Nashville, TN last weekend were our first sign that she was Jake Gyllenhalless … poor lamb, I’d be sad, too! Ah well … ’tis better to have loved and lost and all that jazz. At least now Taylor has at least an album’s worth of heartbreak (and an $11k guitar) to write a new album. Jake is a single man, y’all. Happy Days are here again!! Shall we dance?!
