Taylor Swift does not lead a “lonely life,” despite one of this week’s new tabloids claiming the singer stopped hanging out with friends and rarely leaves her house. The bogus article contends she has very few people supporting her these days, but Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we’ve exclusively learned the truth.
Swift stepped out of the limelight earlier this year to work on her new album, but OK! alleges the singer has actually gone into hiding because she “grew tired of people overanalyzing her life and passing judgement on her.” An alleged insider tells the outlet, “It seems like Taylor is basically living in isolation,” before asserting that she no longer sees friends such as Selena Gomez and Lena Dunham. “All these people were at her side for so long. Now it’s like she has no one.”
The seemingly phony source acknowledges that Swift is still with boyfriend Joe Alwyn, but then says that their relationship is suffering due to her supposed “obsession with privacy.” The so-called “insider” adds, “They rarely go out; he must be tired of being holed up with her cats. This recluse could be the new Taylor.” But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the pop star, who exclusively assures us the magazine’s story is total “nonsense.”
In fact, Swift announced Wednesday on Instagram that she’s launching a social networking app called “The Swift Life” that will give the singer’s fans an opportunity to interact with her. Clearly, Swift wouldn’t be going out of her way to connect with the public if she were the loner that the publication purports her to be. Regardless, we’re told there’s no truth to the tabloid’s article.
Additionally, OK! also has a track record of publishing phony stories surrounding the singer’s relationship with her current boyfriend. Gossip Cop recently busted the outlet for falsely claiming Swift was “terrified” her fame would cause a breakup between her and Alwyn. We also called out the magazine for wrongly reporting Swift was moving to London to live near her boyfriend. This latest article about the singer’s allegedly “lonely life” is similarly untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
