Late Tuesday, the world heard the sad news that everyone’s favorite latte-drinking couple, Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal, had broken up . Now comes some new details about the couple’s split.
So, who called off the relationship? “Jake reached out to her and started all of this, but now he’s not acting as interested,” a source explained to UsMagazine.com about the breakup, which reportedly occurred right before New Year’s. “He said he wasn’t feeling it anymore and was uncomfortable with all the attention they got. Taylor is really upset. We told her not to move so fast with this, but she didn’t listen.”
The Gyllenhaal source added that all the public speculation about the duo didn’t help. “Jake cares about her, but [the publicity] was a lot for him,” the source said. “He wants to keep his private life private, and that’s hard to do dating Taylor.”
People.com reports that the pair celebrated New Year’s separately. Swift was at home in Nashville at a party, while Gyllenhaal was in New York City at a party for the musical “Fela!” and getting dinner with his mom at the Spotted Pig. According to the site, Swift and Gyllenhaal were last spotted together in Los Angeles on December 9.
Although they spent Thanksgiving together, Swift and Gyllenhaal were apart during Christmas. Swift was spotted with her mom and brother getting some sun in Turks and Caicos during the holiday.
E! News reports that Swift will be attending the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday (January 5) and is focusing on work. Meanwhile, Gyllenhaal can concentrate on the upcoming Golden Globes , where he nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.
