Updates about Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn’s relationship are pretty rare, even from sources close to the two, but Us Weekly and E! both managed to run new intel about the couple yesterday. Us Weekly reported on the strength of the relationship, noting that things are great between the two.
“Taylor has had a tough year and Joe has been a rock for her,” a source told the outlet. “They are still going very strong.”
E!, meanwhile, got details about their private life together. Swift makes a lot of secret trips to England to be with Alwyn, where they stay out of the public eye most of the time. “Taylor has been spending a lot of down time in London,” a source told E!. “She doesn’t go out much other than to take a walk with Joe or go to the local pub. They spend a lot of time with Joe’s family and friends. All weekend they had people come over or they went to family members’ homes.”
Swift does a lot of the traveling, although sometimes Alwyn comes to her. “Taylor is back and forth to London frequently,” E!’s source continued. “She will leave this week and come back. Sometimes Joe goes with her when he can. He has been filming and stationed in London for several months. Taylor has her own plane so the freedom to pick up at a moment’s notice and be wherever she needs to be.”
Swift has a show this Sunday in London. On Friday, December 13, she’ll be back in the U.S., performing in New York City at the Jingle Bell Ball.
