Jake Gyllenhaal is not attempting to steal back Taylor Swift from her boyfriend Calvin Harris, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this ridiculous story. We’re told it’s “completely insane.”
Gyllenhaal and Swift dated in 2010, and according to the National Enquirer, the actor is now trying to win her back. The tabloid quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “Jake knows he screwed up the first time around. He wasn’t ready for a commitment but now Jake’s wooing Taylor via emails and texts.”
The magazine actually asserts Gyllenhaal has a “five-point plan” to win Swift back. His alleged strategies include helping her to become a movie star, publicly apologizing for their breakup, allowing her to use his name in song lyrics, agreeing to get married within two years, and finally, being a “stay-at-home dad” while she focuses on her career.
“If Taylor agrees to give Jake another go, he’s ready to fulfill all five promises,” the made-up “source” tells the tabloid. The so-called insider even goes on to allege that Swift is “intrigued” by Gyllenhaal’s offer.
Raise your hand if you believe any of this “five-point plan”? Yeah, we didn’t think so either.
Albeit creative, the entire story is beyond ridiculous and untrue. Interestingly, Gossip Cop previously corrected the Enquirer years ago when it attempted to sell this same story, but in reverse. Originally, the tabloid had said that Swift was the one trying to win Gyllenhaal back. Much like that tall tale, this new version is also false. A source close to Gyllenhaal tells Gossip Cop this new, laughable report is just “completely insane.”
