Taylor Swift had quite the eventful year in 2024. She broke up with her longtime boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, and started dating two new boyfriends. She also found herself involved in her ex-boyfriend, Joe Jonas's, public divorce. Here are some notable moments from Swift's chaotic year:
At the Grammys, Swift attended without her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, and won the award for Best Music Video. This prompted the tabloids to reminisce about her past relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.
Swift kicked off her Eras tour in March, but Alwyn was nowhere to be seen, causing speculation about their relationship. In April, several tabloids reported that Swift and Alwyn had broken up. Sources claimed that Alwyn struggled with Swift's fame and the differences in their personalities had grown too apparent. Swift called her squad, including Gigi Hadid and Blake Lively, for a paparazzi-friendly stroll in New York City in April.
There were rumors that Swift was casually dating Spanish F1 driver Fernando Alonso, but they turned out to be false. British tabloid The Sun reported that Swift was secretly dating Matty Healy, the controversial lead singer of The 1975. Fans were skeptical, but Healy played into the story by mentioning Swift on stage at his show. Healy attended Swift's Nashville tour stops and was seen hanging out with her squad members. The couple was photographed together for the first time. A fan covertly took photos of Swift and Healy holding hands, leading to a news story and the fan losing his club membership.
Swift's tour dates became a hot spot for random celebrities. In Philadelphia, Keith Urban inadvertently revealed secret couple Bo Burnham and Phoebe Bridgers making out in the background of his TikTok video. Amid fan backlash over her relationship with Healy, Swift announced that she would feature the rapper Ice Spice on her remix of "Karma." While Swift's ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas was going through a divorce, Swift took a pap stroll with his now-ex-wife, Sophie Turner, in New York. Turner stayed in one of Swift's investment properties while she sorted things out.
Swift surprised everyone by showing up at Travis Kelce's game and sitting in the VIP box with his mom. They were later seen leaving the stadium together. Swift continued to attend Kelce's games and even made a surprise appearance with him on Saturday Night Live. Sources revealed that Swift and Kelce were heading towards love, though they hadn't explicitly said it yet.
Kelce traveled to Argentina to see Swift on tour and hung out with her dad. Kelce spoke about his relationship with Swift in a Wall Street Journal interview, praising her intelligence. Swift reciprocated the compliments in an interview for Time's "Person of the Year" issue, revealing that they had been dating quietly before their first public appearance. Swift celebrated her 34th birthday with friends, including Selena Gomez and Blake Lively, in New York.
Overall, it was a whirlwind year for Taylor Swift, filled with breakups, new relationships, and public appearances.
