AceShowbiz - It seemed like %cTaylor Swift% and %cJoe Alwyn% became a couple with the help of %cEmma Stone% and %cGigi Hadid%. The "La La Land" star and the 22-year-old model were believed to have been the matchmakers for the new alleged couple.
Rumor has it, Emma, who starred in "The Favourite" with Joe, introduced Taylor to him. She believed that her co-star would be a perfect match for the "Shake It Off" hitmaker. "Taylor and Emma are very close friends, it was Emma who introduced them as she thought he would be perfect for her," a source told The Standard. "Filming for 'The Favourite' started in March and the couple were introduced very soon afterwards. Emma played matchmaker."
Gigi was also claimed to have played a role in Taylor's relationship with Joe. The girlfriend of %cZayn Malik% and "The Sense of an Ending" actor had a photo shoot together for Vogue in September 2016. At that time, Taylor had just split from %cTom Hiddleston%. According to E! News, Gigi later helped them to get closer.
Taylor and Joe were reported to be secretly dating as the "Wildest Dream" songstress tried so hard to keep her relationship from the public eyes. "Taylor has flown in via private jets and her security has made it a military-like mission to prevent her from being seen," an insider revealed, before adding that Taylor had to wear wigs and hats to keep her identity private when walking around London with Joe.
Reports also suggested that Taylor kept her romance secret because she didn't want to "make the same mistakes she did" in her previous relationships. "Taylor is terrified of making the same mistakes in every relationship so she is doing everything she can to protect her love life," a source told HollywoodLife.com.
"She has had her challenges with so many relationships," the source continued. "She has been very open with her fans about all of her guys in the past and she is ready for a change. This time she wants to try something different in hopes having less stress on the relationship."
