Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are not headed for a split because sheâs signed on to a movie adaptation of Cats, despite a new claim. Gossip Cop can bust it. This story ignores the fact that the couple has already proven to be quite adept at balancing their personal and professional lives.
Last month, it was reported Swift will star in a movie version of Andrew Lloyd Webberâs Cats, along with James Corden, Jennifer Hudson and Ian McKellen Filming will begin this fall. Now RadarOnline wants readers to believe the gig spells doom for her relationship with Alwyn.
âThis project is going to be demanding and intense and Taylor will have to spend a lot of time throwing herself into the rehearsals and grueling filming schedule,â a so-called âinsiderâ is quoted as saying. The siteâs untraceable source goes on to contend, âThis is going to be unlike anything Joeâs known. She wonât have time for him like she has in the past.â
The blog further theorizes, âSwift could be busy with filming for a long time, not to mention the intense publicity tour sure to follow.â Adds the alleged tipster, âJoe is used to getting a lot of attention from Taylor, but they canât be joined at the hip anymore. Their relationship is about to change in a major way.â Apparently the website is unaware of how the couple has handled their romance to date.
Swift has been on her âReputation Stadium Tourâ since May, with dates scheduled across the globe. Despite that, she has managed to keep up her relationship with the actor. Alwyn attended Swiftâs tour opener, and during a break from the concert series last month, Swift and Alwyn took a trip to Turks and Caicos. And People specifically reported before the tour began that Swift and Alwyn knew how theyâd make it work because they were already used to being long-distance at times.
âTheyâve confronted scheduling and distance problems before due to Alwynâs acting career,â the magazine pointed out, noting, âWhen Joe is filming, Taylor flies to see him as much as she can.â There is no reason to think the dynamic will change just because Swift will now be the one in front of the camera. Furthermore, the online publication fails to tell readers that the movie adaptation of Cats will be shooting in the U.K., which happens to be where Alwyn is based. The notion that he wonât be able to see her at all is implausible.
There are a few other red flags in this tale. For example, Cordenâs last name is misspelled as âCordon.â (See screengrab below.) And while claiming to have an âinsider,â the outlet also maintains âitâs still not clear exactly which role Swift will play.â Isnât that something an âinsiderâ would know?
To recap, RadarOnline thinks Swift is âheaded for another heartbreakâ and Alwyn has âreason to be worriedâ just because she will be starring in a film adaptation of a Broadway musical. The premise is the singer will suddenly be too busy for her boyfriend, something that is easily disproven when you consider that sheâs already been able to keep the romance going while on a world tour. Plus, thanks to Alwynâs movie career, the couple is already used to taking production schedules into account when it comes to seeing each other.
The site has a history of sensationalizing various aspects of the superstarâs life, such as claiming last year Swift was âhorrifiedâ over âbacklashâ from âLook What You Made Me Do,â even though the song was incredibly successful. Also last year, following Conor Kennedyâs arrest, the blog alleged she wanted to get back together with him. By that time, she had already been dating Alwyn for several months. The website has proven to know little about Swiftâs life, which is why it manufactures stories that donât hold up under close examination.
This latest tale is no different. Swift and Alwyn could eventually split due to busy schedules, but itâs ridiculous at this point to predict Cats will be their undoing, given everything else thatâs known about their relationship and the project.
