Rumor has it that Taylor Swift has been keeping her relationship with her new British boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn, suuuuper low-key. How low-key, though? Well according to The Sun, the two have been dating for months now!
We've noticed that Taylor has been mysteriously missing from the public eye in the past months and only resurfaced over the Mother's Day weekend in her mom's house in Nashville. Her going all MIA makes sense because Taylor has apparently been renting an apartment near her beau in North London.
A source says, "She's been walking around with Joe in London using disguises, like scarves and hats, to keep her identity under wraps. Nobody has a clue they've been walked past a music superstar—not even her new neighbors."
Taylor's relationship with Joe is a far cry from her most recent relationship with another British actor Tom Hiddleston. The former couple famously had a super high-profile three-month romance which ended in September last year.
A friend of Taylor and Joe's revealed that their family and friends have known about their relationship for months: "This isn’t a new couple alert or a secret relationship—the only people this has been a secret to is the media because all of us, Taylor and Joe's closest friends and their families, were aware they have been together for several months and have known each other for a long time.
"After her 1989 tour and all the attention Taylor received, she learned she had to be more protective of her personal life and she and Joe decided early on to keep their private life private."
So who exactly is the new blonde hottie in Tay Tay's life? Well, Joe's a 26-year-old London-born actor who recently starred in his breakout role for Ang Lee's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk alongside Kristen Stewart.
The Daily Mail reports he attended the National Youth Theatre before enrolling at the University of Bristol and London's Royal Central School of Speech and Drama—meaning he takes his craft seriously—and is said to be very private and down to earth.
