While fans tried to decode the meaning behind Swift’s latest album, The Tortured Poets Department, for any clues on their breakup, Joe Alwyn opened up about the complexities that come with the end of a long-term relationship with a celeb like Taylor Swift, both publicly and personally.

During an interview with The Sunday Times Style Magazine, Alwyn was asked if he had listened to Swift’s album, which apparently resembles a WhatsApp group chat name called ‘The Tortured Man Club’. The group consists of Alwyn, Andrew Scott, and Paul Mescal. Alwyn replied,

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. That is a hard thing to navigate. What is unusual and abnormal in this situation is that, one week later, it’s suddenly in the public domain and the outside world is able to weigh in.

Alwyn pointed out that the nature of their lives comes with a cost to their privacy, as their private matters are heavily circulated in the public domain. This also leads to criticism from fans and netizens, as he sometimes faced from Swifties. However, Alwyn chose to maintain a respectful silence and refused to bring out the personal details of their relationship. He said in the interview,

You have something very real suddenly thrown into a very unreal space: tabloids, social media, press, where it is then dissected, speculated on, pulled out of shape beyond recognition. And the truth is, to that last point, there is always going to be a gap between what is known and what is said. I have made my peace with that.

Alwyn also admitted that he faced and understood the difficulties of the breakup but was happy for the change that made him grow personally and professionally. Moreover, he doesn’t want to dwell on negativity and mentioned that he wants to be positive about the entire process.

Amid Alwyn’s confessions, Swift found herself surrounded by rumors of a breakup with Travis Kelce. However, she dismissed such gossip after she was seen supporting him during one of the important milestones in his career.

The rumor of their breakup started after a recent TikTok video by Louisiana State University gymnast Olivia Dunne. They have been apart due to their schedules, with Swift being on the Eras Tour, where she delivered her 100th show in Liverpool.

However, while Kelce attended the Super Bowl LVIII Rings Ceremony, the pop star found a way to cheer for Kelce and reconnect on social media. According to Marca, Swift showed her support by commenting on their social media livestreams.

With this gesture, Swift confirmed that there are no issues between them and that their love is still strong, even if they are not currently together. Her words not only encouraged Kelce but also gave positive feedback to netizens and critics, who saw their sweet online exchange.

As the Joe Alwyn-Taylor Swift breakup story concludes, Alwyn doesn’t want his past relationship to get any attention or criticism from media outlets, as both he and his ex-partner have moved on from their separation and taken over the next phase of life.
