A country song about Jake Gyllenhaal might appear any day now, since the actor and Taylor Swift have split up.
"They're over," a source tells People about Gyllenhaal and Swift, who is known for her ex-boyfriend-bashing tunes. "It ended last month."
The quickie romance kicked off in October, when the duo were spotted together backstage at "Saturday Night Live." Gyllenhaal, 30, and Swift, 21, also spent Thanksgiving together and were most recently seen out and about as a couple on December 9 in Los Angeles. The new year got off to a different start, however, with Gyllenhaal spending time in New York while Swift stayed in Nashville.
As for why the pair decided to part, a source tells Us Weekly that both the age difference and media attention got to be too much for Gyllenhaal.
“Jake cares about her, but [the publicity] was a lot for him," says the insider. "He wants to keep his private life private, and that’s hard to do dating Taylor.”
Thanks for one's marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it, you happen to be a great author.I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and may come back someday. I want to encourage yourself to continue your great work, have a nice holiday weekend!
Taylor Swift is such a trollop – my bet is she probably gives it up too quickly...
Obviously, he never got over his time with Heath Ledger.....besides, it's immoral to date a giant 12yr old anyway.
She's too young/immature for him. She's 21 but seems to have the mentality of a 15 year old girl.
OH MY GOD! COULD SHE BE MORE PHONY? I WANT TO PUKE EVERYTIME I SEE HER..............SMART MOVE JAKE
WHO? Who are these people and why are they in the news?
This is good news. Now I have a shot at her.
Why do people seem surprise? I don't think most of us are still with the person we were with in our 20's.
What happened to those maple sugar lattes?
I would totally wreck Taylor Swift...and she would love it.
Please, he dumped her because she did not put out.
Once she learns how to handle a tube steak she will have more luck wit guys rite now she just makes a face like she farted and squeals like a cheap mattress
She's a slug in bed n don't know how to throw it back, I piped her down about a year ago, she needs pipe training badly
I'll bet he broke up with her because he couldn't stand listening to that nasally voice of hers anymore. I won't even mention her monotonous, they-all-sound-alike songs that my dog could compose and sing just as well.
now we gonna hear all about it in her next song!!! LOL
21 is still very young. She might be an "infatuation junkie" (sorry Alanis).
It's something she's doing,.....it's driving the guy's away.
She may lack genuine human warmth in terms of passion.
She may kiss like a 15 year old. she may be akward up close. She is probably very socially retarded, and might hear her mothers voice in her head everytime she tries to be intimate.
Poor Jake................... It looks like I'll have to come to the rescue once again, as I did for Ryan Reynolds a few weeks ago and help take all the pain away. I'm in Atlanta buddy.
Taylor Swift has been passed around more than a joint at a Santana concert. Why can't she keep a man? It may be the rat face and she looks like she smells a turd all the time.
"why can't she keep a man"? Reality check – she's a young adult and like most people in that age group, she meets people and spends with them. It's called "dating". Are you expecting her to be engaged and pregnant by now?
Uh Taylor Swift's not from Philedalphia. Do your research and quit listening to people's lies about how they went to high school with her. I'm not really a fan of hers but I know that she was homeschooled for most of her high school career.
Meh- Do you not know who Jake Gyllenhaal is? He doesn't need 15 minutes of fame, he's been acting for a long time and he is actually good at it.
PhillyRep did NOT say she was from Philadelphia. Learn to read before you embarrass yourself with your silly comments.
Taylor swift sucks she a no talented bimbo-she sounds a drowning cat-and she is ugly!!
Yet she has million$ ... and millions of fans. Still better than you !
feeling the pain . . .
She probably wouldn't "put out" :)
kind of a ho she is
I'm filing this one under who the hell knew/cared... I thought she was dating that twilight dude. Oh well time marches on..
Will love making “Sparks Fly.” Neither Taylor nor Gwyneth made his notebook. Miranda does. Clever girl.
OH NOOOoooooooo!!!!!!! (sniff, a tear)
I am glad they split up. She probably tried to sing to him and he figured out she can't really sing.
Oh yeah. You tell em amos moses. Taylor Swift be the best. He hands down better than Herschel Walker even.
I asked my football coach and he said no way this article can be legit. He played college ball with Taylor Swift and they both dated many hot babes. Taylor is a pro ball player man. He be in the NFL. He not some sissy dating a white boy named Jake. Whoever wrote this article need to get a clue.
Who really cares!.
Ya I dont rlly like either of them, but isnt jakes "private life" sorta ruined nyway cuz of his movie?
I think it's the best thinlg for both, Taylor is so young & Jake has been around the block & couple of times, she
needs to find someone more her age, so they can experience new beginnings together. I hope they
both find that special someone.
She needed new material-he needed 15 mins of fane. Mission accomplished, now move on ;)
I live in Nashville and I saw them together a lot around Thanksgiving. They seemed happy together. Jake G. is a scalding hot in person.
Anyway, living in Nashville I always see Taylor out at the spots on 12th Avenue, as her apartment is in ICON in our 'Gulch' neighborhood. I saw her at Whiskey Kitchen not too long ago. Sweet girl. Cannot stand her music though, and for that matter, very few people in Nashville do enjoy her music. She's WAYYYYYY too over-exposed here.
Jake is "scalding hot"? Hmm. I can't get past the big flat face – looks like he was hit with a frying pan. As for Taylor, I've never understood why she's famous – her voice is okay, but she's just singing her diary, which reads/sounds like any other teenager's diary. Why is she a star?
Duh! This isn't really news. It was all just a publicity gimmick. Just for the cameras. So typical in the entertainment industry.
I've cried for hours over this. I thought GyllenSwift would last forever. I think the world may end before 2012. I guess there's nothing left to do but kill myself. I feel so bad for the world. If two celebrities can't make it work, we're all doomed.
don't give up! There's hope. Here it is, 2 in the afternoon in Arkansas, and no birds have fallen out of the sky yet today.
Jake u finally came to ur senses. Thank god
Stating my opinion,
It sucks that they broke up but I really didn't expect them to last that long.I think it's completely rude and unnecessary how people are bashing both of them though. All of you need to grow up. They are both adults and I don't see why people are whining about they're age difference. She's 21 and he's what 29,30? Who cares,it's not that big of a difference.
I know i least the were born in the same decade
Taylor is young and and its always best to date people until your find the right one for you. No comments, no rules. Get to really know someones likes, dislikes etc. I know things are so fast and thats jpart of all these problems with the young. Meet in a bar. go out for a couple 2-6 momths they get married. Wrong!!
To the people commenting about this not being news and complaining...quit reading the entertainment/celebrity sections then! duhhhhhhhhmmy.
If Jake wants to "keep his private life private" why does he keep dating celebrity women?
these last 2 post are much better. i love the one about them being tards. yall livened up our day. thanks. :)
Funny;Jake needs to go back to BROKE ASS MOUNTAIN AND GET his tounge out of Heath Ledger's Ass and TALOR needs to bend over for some 7 inch african tubesnake and guess what who cares?"
Taylor is too swift for jake's snake..she's looking for the one that bites!
Nice attempt at being catchy and hoping CNN picks up your "oh-so-clever" comment. Fail.
this is a boring blog. the jokes arent funny. where is all the good mean spiritedness we expect from cnn entertainment postings. come on folks. you can be funnier than this.
Honestly i think both taylor and jake are ok folks. its a shaame it didnt work out but lots of things in life are that way. ibet theyll both turn out great. we hope they and everyone who reads this is having a wonderful week.
can't say i wouldn't hold it against her
... I called it last month, suckas... http://fraubella.blogspot.com/2010/12/christmas-wrapping.html
Yeah – nobody else saw it coming did they ? 'Cause celebrity romances are known to be stable & long-lasting ...
so did everyone else, nitwit
You may or may not know this. We should be worried about when Obama is going to bring our loved ones home from this war. To me that should be on everyones mind insted of all this romance publicity. What better things outthere to talk about!
Golly amy your life must be one big bowl of GLUCK!
You're so right, Amy. This is proof positive that no one is worried about anything in the entire world except Taylor Swift and Jake somebody breaking up.
Typical hectoring, lecturing liberal – SO impressed with their own moral superiority.
Amy, honey, go post in the war forums. These are entertainment forums made for posting celebrity news, the accompanying snark, and bait for Internet retards.
so then why are you in here talking about it?
@amy: that was ridiculous. there is more to life than religious child predators. now have some fun for once!
It sounds like to me. That in this world now. We should worry about what
Is really going on in this messed up world. Like our saviors our troops should and will be coming home. Not Taylor Swifts life or who broke up with who!
if you don't want to pay attention. to stories about the entertainment industry. then you shouldn't. click. on .them.
taylor is dating cee lo according to TMz.
what kind of imbecile would call himself "cee lo"....??
and worse yet, what kinda of iTarded woman would date a person that called himself 'cee lo'??
(another joke of a relationship that will be worth less than a day old fart soon....whoooop dee doo...)
mama always said....pathetic is as pathetic does!!
Hooray! Another album will be out next week..../gag
Watch out Jake you are the next contestant on the Taylor Swift Show. Her acid pen will be working overtime.........Boo Hoo poor me.
Taylor Swift may be fast, but probably not. Not if you check her Twitter account. She makes Kanye West and Justin Bieber look clever, haha. Not. And that is saying a lot.
In the Boston Marathon, she could at least compete. In Love’s Marathon, she is still dawdling at the starting line, according to the Boston Herald. Who would have thunk it?
I wonder if she will run into Miranda Cosgrove at the People’s Choice Awards?
Joy to you, Rose.
Really? this is real news? OMG! those poor rich people... give me a break...
You do realize this is in the entertainment section don't you ? That usually means there won't be any hard-hitting news on hot-button issues. 99% fluff.
i wish taylor and maculey culkin would hook up. they would have the whitest palest kids in history.
Please come back to me my darling Jake. The nights in Malibu are so very cold without you.
This works out for Taylor considering Jake is gay.
Snookie you.should work at the BunnyRanch...you already look like a H0..
In much more current and exciting news, I really really love to fart. I just really love the feel of that warm methane...
The best LOL moment I've had today, thank you!
Boring! We will hear the details on this breakup in her 4th album.
I think Jake should go to the BunnyRanch and get his freak on...forget about that cold fish!!
Breaking NEWS! Who FREAKIN' CARES!
Another notch in the H0's belt....Jake can do better than that ditz...
Run, Jake, run! Glad he got away in time.
isnt taylor swift that racist white girl that stole beyonces award
That is so funny!
Now Jake should hook up with Anne Hathaway, there chemistry seems tooo real.
exchanging one nice looking sponge of a woman for an ugly anorexic one???
that would be GROSS!!!!
I seriously can not stand taylor swift. shes a young brat who is vindective about her break ups...her songs are all the same! you broke my heart..blah blah..jake is waaaay to hot for her. way to go jake
glad thats over! Im waiting for you Jake! Xoxo
Ana, the good news is that he called and wanted me to tell you that he meant nothing by it and will you please forgive him and take him back? He loves only you. He asked me to tell you that.
How many gay guys have you actually dated?
oh wow what a surprise.....did u really think it was a match made in heaven?
PLS this news are not to be patronized cuz its not giving young kids or teens a good example. they might take love for granted. LOVE IS SACRED. Grow up people.
Yes, always good to gather "lessons" for kids from a CNN entertainment board. Parenting at it's finest.
I live in the swamp. I cant keep up with everones age. My goodness.
I sort of live in one, too, but actually, it's more that I live in a van down by the river.
I thiught Jake G was dating Justin BIeber . They both such pretty little girls.
Hate to break it to you guys, but HES GAY.
And you're right! Cause she's hot and he's not "relevant" right now. Forgotten all about this guy can't remember any interesting movies he's done since Broke Back Mountain until dating Taylor. Wonder how sher feels to be used for publicity.
yeah he's made 9 movies since Brokeback mountain, and a ton before that. But glad to know the gay one was the only one that sticks in your mind.
btw ever hear of acting? that's when you pretend to be something you're not.
RUN TAYLOR. RUN. BE SWIFT AS THE WIND.
"Oh my god" I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight. What I am going to do!!!!!!!!
Time for Jake to find a new beard.
Stop that Jan Michael!
yep. fake relationships are hard.
AMOS MOSES: Read the article. Taylor is 21. Her B-day was Dec. 13.
good thing her birthday was Dec 13 and she turned 21, otherwise she'd still be 17. weirdo.
What took Jake so long? He must not have been to one of her concerts.
they both seem nice but he does seem a little old for her. isnt she just 17 .
17? Did you even read the article? Can you read?
It seems we rank 57th in reading skills right behind Gabon. *sigh*
Can't you read?
Anybody that would break up with Taylor is lost, unless Taylor broke up with him. Taylor is truly sweet, kind and attentive at least to her fans and whoever she meets anywhere. You wouldn't know it was Taylor by her personal demeanor and sometimes her dress and looks. She would not worry about the age difference personally, but she would care about how its example might affect her younger fans. She is careful about that because she cares so much about them. I think the breakup was the right move because they did not go together or belong.
Wow, like you really know the girl.
You sound like a stalker you weirdo.
Gee – you two grew up together, did you? Still best buds – talk every day, share most intimate thoughts?
Do you have have a clue how ridiculous your post sounds?
You are just plain weird
And you know this HOW? Who cares anyway.
OMG!!!! Dude, please get out of the house!!
good little sheep
She's riding a big high right now and it will either make or break her reputation as some pompous jerk just like the idiot black guy who stole the mic from her when her delicate little white hiney almost cried. That could be her someday if she doesnt keep her head and remain level-headed. But i wouldnt mind reading about her as the next Lindsy Lohan.
Yeah uh she is from the Philadelphia area and I know plenty of people that went to high school with her as I am only a year older than her. Everybody I have talked to said she was rude and self-centered back in high school as she was becoming famous. So yeah.
..an absolute sweetie ..who will write a song about the failed relationship, trash the guy, play the victim, and cry all the way to the bank. Give me a f–king break, will you?
Are you Taylor's mom?
Let's not recommend her for sainthood just yet. She's a human being, like all of us, with faults. Most of us don't show our faults when we're at work, as we have to put on our best behaviour and that's true for her too. You see the "work image" Taylor, not the full picture.
It's funny that she's always the victim whenever she's not with someone anymore. She trashes these guys and then people love her for it. I honestly don't blame Jake for wanting to keep his life private. She's a very public person, and that's ok if that's what she likes. She's a very pretty girl though.
this is the most racist article i have ever read. taylor swift cam run very very fast. she won gold in the 2008 olympics. you go girl. taylor rocks.
Racist??? Check your grammar usage. Ha! Who let the crazies out.
did you seriously just say "you go girl"? Did we all just time travel back to 1997? That expression went out with parachute pants.
Good for Jake! She seems too high maintenance and too stuck on herself.
high maintenance or not....
that is one nice sponge!!!
Are u kiddin' me? She'd rite a song about me called It hurt's soooo GOOD"! (Down There)...
Given all the boyfriends Swift goes through, just maybe it's not so wonderful being her boyfriend. She's the one writing the songs, though, so you're only going to hear her side of the story.
Sheesh! She's 21! Didn't you play the field at that age?
hey KL..... hm, no everytime they came back from a date HIS hurt.
A cart? Huh? She's a cart?I don't get it.Is that an insult?"Oooooh, you are a cart, Taylor!" I'm sure she's very hurt by that.
I like carrots :(
Wonderful. Feel free to ram them up your hoop then.
