Taylor Swift may be in the midst of writing new songs, but that doesn’t necessarily mean her love life is peachy keen.
According to a new report, Taylor Swift’s relationship with boyfriend Tom Hiddleston may be on the rocks due to her past, and possibly present, romance with Taylor Lautner and the ongoing media scrutiny, which Hiddleston is reportedly stressed out about.
Following a report by Hall of Fame Magazine, which suggested Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner could be getting back together, Gossip Cop set the record straight about a report previously shared by Celebrity Dirty Laundry.
“[Tom Hiddleston] recently hinted that the pressure of being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend might be getting to him, as he’s simply not used to being in the celebrity spotlight with the tabloid media following his every move,” Celebrity Dirty Laundry explained to readers, according to the August 15 report by Gossip Cop.
However, as Gossip Cop pointed out, Hiddleston had simply explained his thoughts about the culture of celebrity during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter and didn’t even mention Taylor Swift by name. Either way, Gossip Cop confirmed that Hiddleston wasn’t on the verge of a “breakdown” as the outlet claimed.

As for the Lautner rumors, the actor recently spoke of Taylor Swift during an interview and confirmed they dated briefly, but never suggested they were still involved, nor did he hint at any sort of future with the singer. Lautner was also confronted about “Back to December,” which was reportedly written about him, but wouldn’t say whether or not he was actually the inspiration behind the track.
In the past, Taylor Swift has been known to write songs, both good and bad, about her past flames, and now that she’s dating Hiddleston, fans are waiting in the wings to hear her upcoming songs.

“Tom’s love has been great for [Taylor Swift] and he has been a great source of creative energy for her,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “He listens to all her musical ideas and has been encouraging her as she writes new lyrics for songs — and she has lots to write about. The whole process has been easy for her as long as Tom is around. He really has been a new muse for Taylor.”
Taylor Swift dated DJ Calvin Harris from February 2015 until May 2016 and weeks later, she and Hiddleston were spotted on a beach in Rhode Island making no attempts at keeping their romance to themselves. Following the release of the photos, Harris seemingly called out Swift when he removed a tweet claiming he still respected her and posted several other cryptic tweets, which he later deleted.
Following their romance debut, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston embarked on a world tour which took them from Italy to the U.K. to Australia and back to the United States, where Hiddleston was photographed spending time with Swift and her parents in Nashville, Tennessee.
While Taylor Swift has not yet announced plans to release a new album, Hollywood Life pointed out in their report that the singer has released albums every two years since 2006, so by the end of this year, she is due for a new release.
As Taylor Swift’s writing continues, her boyfriend, Hiddleston, has been traveling back and forth between the United States and Australia, where he is currently in the midst of production on Thor 3.
