The relationship between the singer and the Spider-Man: Far from Home actor may have been brief but it was highly publicised in the press.
Taylor celebrated New Year’s Eve at home in Nashville in 2010, while Jake attended a party for the musical Fela! in New York City.
One of their last appearances together as a couple was reportedly on December 9th, 2010 after celebrating Thanksgiving.
The lyrics of ‘All Too Well’ appear to hint at Taylor’s break-up with Jake.
