Taylor Swift Trying to “Rekindle” Romance with Jake Gyllenhaal?

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes



Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal dated only briefly last year, but the tabloids are still hopelessly clinging to their past relationship as a source of drama.

In Touch has a story this week with the headline, “Jake Dumps Taylor… Again!” claiming Swift begged the actor to “rekindle their romance,” but “he shot her down.” According to a supposed “friend” of Gyllenhaal, “Taylor still reaches out to him and he wants nothing to do with her.”

The reason given is that Swift is now friendly with Gyllenhaal’s ex, Reese Witherspoon. “Jake’s normally an easygoing guy, but the thought of Taylor telling Reese everything she knows about him just puts a knot in his stomach,” says In Touch‘s source. Adds the so-called friend, “He really wanted to marry Reese, and he doesn’t want any girl-talk about him.”

There’s just one major problem with this story. Swift is NOT trying to get back together with Gyllenhaal. They dated a year ago, and have both moved on. A source close to the singer tells Gossip Cop the tab’s story is completely untrue. Oh, and one more thing – when Swift and Witherspoon do get together, which isn’t often, they don’t spend their time gossiping about Gyllenhaal.
