    Taylor Swift has been laying pretty low ever since that whole Kim Kardashian/Kanye West/phone call about ‘approving lyrics’ debacle. However, it hasn’t stopped her Hollywood associates talking about her.

    We’ve had Katy Perry’s album, which may or may not be a clap back at Taylor’s Bad Blood, as well as Tom Hiddleston sharing his regrets about their relationship (RIP terrible tank top), and then there’s Jake Gyllenhaal who just gets a bit sore whenever she’s brought up in conversation.

    But in all the drama, where has Swifty been? Sure, she had that song with Zayn Malik where they set fire to a very expensive looking hotel room in the music video, but what else has she been doing?

    It would seem that if the reports are true, we haven’t seen much of her because she’s been sneaking around London in disguise with her new man.

    According to The Sun, Taylor has been dating 26 year-old British actor Joe Alwyn ‘for months’ and has been spending a lot of time with him in the UK.

    Joe may be better known for starring alongside Kristen Stewart in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, or working with Jim Broadbent in A Sense of Ending.

    ‘Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship. But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet,’ the source told the paper.

    So no tank tops this time around? Sad.

    The paper also claims that Taylor has been shuffling around London ‘using disguises, like scarves and hats’ and that pretty much all of their family and friends know.

    ‘This isn’t a new couple alert or secret relations – the only people this has been a secret to is the media because all of us, Taylor and Joe’s closest friends and their families, were aware they have been together for several months and have known each other for a long time,’ a friend claims.
