However, the songs appear to be a slap on the actor’s face since Swift claims she felt isolated and alone in the relationship. Their 6-year relationship seemingly amounts to nothing as Swift states she gave away her youth to him for free. According to PEOPLE, a source close to the British actor has claimed that he always preferred keeping his relationships private. But now, Swift appears to have gone rogue with her new album and said things that can be taken out of context.

This is one of the reasons why celebrities choose to keep their relationships close to their chest and away from the spotlight. The source further expresses that Alwyn wished to let his romance remain his personal story, as opposed to fodder for the media that it has now become.
