Taylor Swift's Ex-Boyfriend Joe Alwyn Opens Up About Breakup: 'Hope That Anyone And Everyone Can Empathize'

The former boyfriend of pop sensation Taylor Swift, Joe Alwyn, has broken his silence on their split, urging fans to empathize with their situation.

What Happened: Alwyn, 33, and Swift, 34, had been together for six years before they decided to part ways in April 2023. The end of their relationship triggered a wave of fan theories and social media chatter, with Swift’s recent album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” adding fuel to the fire, Business Insider reported on Sunday.

Speaking to The Sunday Times, Alwyn shared the difficulties of ending a long-term relationship under the public’s watchful eye.

“I would hope that anyone and everyone can empathize and understand the difficulties that come with the end of a long, loving, fully committed relationship of over six and a half years,” he stated.

Alwyn added that he has come to terms with the misconceptions surrounding their split, considering the couple’s decision to keep their relationship details private.

“As everyone knows, we together — both of us, mutually — decided to keep the more private details of our relationship private. It was never something to commodify and I see no reason to change that now,” he said.

Why It Matters: Swift’s split with Alwyn occurred just as her acclaimed “Eras Tour” was getting underway, leading to heightened fan speculation and scrutiny of her performances. Post her breakup with Alwyn, Swift was briefly linked with Matty Healy, the lead singer of 1975, before she started dating Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Swift’s concerts have not only set records but also caused seismic activity. Her three sold-out shows in Edinburgh, Scotland, resulted in earthquake readings nearly four miles from the venue, attributed to fans’ enthusiastic dancing.
