Guess Who Else is Never Ever Getting Back Together with Taylor Swift (EXCLUSIVE)
The frontman for a popular rock band loved (and lost) the country crooner -- but trust us, he doesn't mind.
What does All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter have in common with Joe Jonas, John Mayer, and Harry Styles?
You guessed it: he was one of many men who succumbed to Taylor Swift’s country charm, an insider tells Celebuzz exclusively. And just like all the others -- trust us, there are many -- he too had a short shelf-life...by choice.
“He wasn't into her world and hurt her," a source close to 28-year-old Ritter said. "He just stopped calling. He kept it very quiet because he isn't a very public kind of guy. He’s so private, and he wasn't into the glitz and glamour and attention-seeking like Taylor was. He's more laid back and chill.”writing about her heartbreak -- over and over and over again -- does that mean Ritter went on to inspire one of her breakup ballads?
Some think Swift's latest single, “I Knew You Were Trouble," may be a thinly veiled ode to Ritter -- especially given the tatted-up dude who plays her dangerous love interest in the music video.
“Everyone is talking about who the song is about. Tyson's friends even think the song is about him,” said the source.Jake Gyllenhaal in late 2011 and before her PDA-packed summer of 2012 with Conor Kennedy. Ritter bumped into the 23-year-old at the CMT Artists of the Year Awards, where the All-American Rejects paid homage to her by putting their own spin on her hit “Mean.”
“They met backstage and Tyson started talking to her, and it just happened," said the source. “They both got along great right away. They hung out a few times, went on a few dates and texted a lot.
“Tyson and Taylor saw each other over a few months. It was super-casual. They hung out at each other’s places in L.A."
“He Tweeted her to get her attention, and they’ve been dating since July," said the source.
Swift, meanwhile, is on the prowl since splitting from Styles earlier this month. Gentlemen, beware.
