Is some nefarious force at work to destroy romance forever in Hollywood?

First Hills sweethearts Jayde Nicole and Brody Jenner called it quits. Then longtime Tinsel Town couple Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins took the express train to Splitsville.

And now, Us Magazine reports, Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner have officially broken up.

A source close to the Fearless songbird says that the couple, who met while filming the upcoming romantic comedy Valentine’s Day, decided to pull the plug on their relationship because it “wasn’t really developing into anything, and wasn’t going to, so they decided they were better as friends. There was no chemistry, and it felt contrived.”

Really? It seemed totally organic and not at all a manufactured Hollywood romance to us.

The T-Swift insider reveals that the two knew it was really over when Lautner flew to Nashville to attend his girl’s birthday party on December 13. According to the source, it was right about then that Lautner was kicked in the head by the realization that she just wasn’t that into him:

“He liked her more than she liked him. He went everywhere he could to see her, but she didn’t travel much to see him.”

Oh well; we’re sure there will be no shortage of volunteers to kiss that boo-boo on his heart and make it feel all better.
