Though Taylor Swift was out of the spotlight for much of 2017, she was still a tabloid target. The gossip media tried to link the superstar to a number of former flames, including Conor Kennedy and Tom Hiddleston. OK! chose Jake Gyllenhaal.

In March, the outlet falsely announced the pair were “dating again” after Swift supposedly reached out to her ex beau while he was living in New York City for a stint on Broadway. “Taylor was so young when they dated, she wasn’t ready for a serious relationship, but now she’s showing Jake how much she’s matured. She’s excited to see where things go,” a so-called “source” was quoted as saying.

But as much as the publication wanted fans to think Swift and Gyllenhaal were rekindling their romance, which originally took place in 2010, Gossip Cop was exclusively assured there was “no truth” to the claim. And there was a good reason for that: Though their relationship wasn’t public at the time, Swift was already dating Joe Alwyn. In fact, they started seeing each other under the radar in late 2016. When their coupling was confirmed in May 2017, that only proved that our debunking of the supposed Swift-Gyllenhaal reunion was correct.

And far from getting back together with Gyllenhaal, the singer and her current boyfriend are still going strong and intend to take their relationship into 2018. Alwyn and Swift had plans to spend the holidays together, and he’ll even join her on tour next year. And while the performer will likely still be the subject of bad dish in the coming months, the tabloids should know she’s not afraid to fire back.

In November, Swift cleverly mocked OK! and Us Weekly by creating parody magazines inspired by the lies they’ve told about her. For example, last year OK! made-up a cover story that blared, “Taylor Shocker! Pregnant! Who’s The Dad?” Swift now pointedly poked fun at the fabrication by putting lines exclaiming “Taylor Shocker” and “Who Is Olivia’s Real Father?” on her faux edition. Olivia, for the record, is one of Swift’s cats. Gossip Cop applauds Swift for giving the tabloids a taste of their own medicine and hope to see more stars fight back in 2018.
