Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn’s split has been in the news for over a week, but the multi-platinum-selling pop star is doing well.
During her “The Eras” comeback tour in Tampa, Florida, she told her devoted fans about how she’s been dealing with the news.
Taylor was performing on stage when she noticed a fan in the audience holding a sign that read, “You OK?”
In response, the singer-songwriter gave a reassuring thumbs-up, which was videotaped and shared on TikTok.
Fans were relieved to learn that their favorite artist was safe.
As they all expressed their concerns, the comments came thick and fast.
One person remarked:
“It’s so adorable, but let’s face it – we’re all worried right now. She has a lot on her plate,”
Another chimed in:
“That’s all I want to know!”
Taylor returned to the stage in front of an ecstatic crowd of 70,000 in Florida, remarking:
“We have a lot to catch up on!”
Taylor Swift performed “Champagne Problems,” a song co-written with Joe Alwyn, from her ninth studio album “Evermore.”
Taylor Swift sparked a social media frenzy before her 2019 single “Lover” was released when she described the song differently than usual.
The star was dressed to impress in a jeweled bodysuit and thigh-high boots for her first performance since news broke that she and Joe had ended their relationship due to “differences in personalities.”
Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn’s relationship rumors began in May 2017, with many believing they met the previous year at the Met Gala.
According to an anonymous source who spoke with the Daily Mail:
“Their troubles had to do with Taylor’s focus on her career over that of Joe, something which can lead to tension for couples when one is prioritized more than the other.”
According to an inside source, it was clear that Taylor’s career had taken precedence over Joe’s. It allegedly created a power imbalance between them, and both eventually realized that their relationship was no longer stable.
In 2018, the British actor spoke to Vogue UK about the public’s fascination with his relationship with the 12-time Grammy winner. He acknowledged that his relationship with her piqued people’s interest.
During that time, the “Mary Queen of Scots” actor said:
“I’m aware people want to know about that side of things. I think we have been successfully very private and that has now sunk in for people.”
