Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have broken up after six years together.

Swift is currently traveling across the country on her Eras Tour, but the actor hasn’t been seen in attendance.

The pair have mostly kept their relationship private, but true to form, Swift gave some hints to her fans through her music.

Earlier this year, Swift said on her Instagram that “Lavender Haze,” the opening track off her 2022 album Midnights, is about Alwyn. She stated that when people are in a “lavender haze” of love, they’ll “do anything to stay there and not let people bring [them] down off of that cloud.”

Part of that included not paying attention to speculation and tabloid reporting about their relationship.

There were rumors in 2019 that Swift and Alwyn were engaged when Swift’s fans, called Swifties, analyzed the lyrics of the song “Lover,” the title track from the album she released that year.

“If I had a pound for every time I think I’ve been told I’ve been engaged, then I’d have a lot of pound coins,” Alwyn told WSJ Magazine last year, adding that he wouldn’t provide any answers to gossip.

Swift began dating Alwyn in 2016. They also worked together on music during the pandemic where Alwyn co-wrote several songs on Swift’s 2020 albums Folklore and Evermore using the pseudonym William Bowery.

In addition, many of the love songs on Swift’s 2017 album Reputation are said to be inspired by Alwyn and the couple’s relationship.
