Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift, who were photographed looking cozy and happy during their two-month whirlwind romance, unexpectedly called it quits after the 30-year-old blindsided the country sweetheart, according to Us Weekly.
The last guy that did that? John Mayer who got a special shoutout on Swift’s latest album, in the aptly titled track “Dear John”.
According to sources, Swift was completely torn up over the sudden breakup.
“It was 180-degree turn and so out of the blue,” a source told the gossip magazine.
Sources told Us Weekly that it was the “Love and Other Drugs” star, who sent his handlers after the then-20-year-old in October. He even bought her an expensive guitar for her birthday, and introduced her to his family.
But then it just all went to shreds.
“Jake told her it wasn’t working out,” a source told Us Weekly. “Taylor is really upset and hurt. She doesn’t know what she did for him to put a stop to it. she feels really burned by him.”
If Gyllenhaal does find himself in an upcoming Swift hit, he certainly won’t be the only one of the doe-eyed star’s exes to hear about it on the radio.
Her song “Back To December” is widely believed to be about ex-flame Taylor Lautner and an earlier hit “Teardrops On My Guitar” is also believed to be aimed towards an ex-beau.
In an interview with Glamour in October, she said she fully expected one of the boys she’s broken up with to take revenge on her, too.
“Eventually I’m sure one of them will write a response – that’s a pretty scary concept, actually,” she said. “But I make sure I only write bad songs about the ones who deserve it.”
