The 25-year-old singer reportedly suffered a bit of a break down at the party, having to hit the bathroom several times to collect herself and relying on Cara Delevingne to help lift her spirits.
So what happened exactly? Is Swift’s ex Jake Gyllenhaal–who was also at the party–to blame? Let’s look at the details…
According to an insider, Gyllenhaal hit the dancefloor around midnight and was immediately surrounded by beautiful women, including Rita Ora and Malin Akerman. Then, shortly after 2 a.m., Swift hit the floor but didn’t appear to be having the best time, instead looking a bit stressed out.
“She wasn’t dancing,” the eyewitness tells Us Weekly, “but I saw her grab her friend’s hand and repeat, ‘We have to go. We have to go,'” as if to avoid her ex-boyfriend.
The observer notes Swift immediately scurried off the dance floor and into the bathroom where she ran into pals Delevingne, Dakota Johnson and (awkward) Rita Ora.
“The four girls were together and Taylor was having a mini meltdown,” the source reveals. “Cara’s arm was around Taylor, calming her down as Rita looked on. They were talking extremely closely.”
After the bathroom breakdown, Swift was then seen frantically walking in circles in the lobby. “She couldn’t find her friends and her makeup was smudged,” the onlooker tell Us. Finally, the 1989 crooner found Delevingne, and the two had a little pow-wow on a bench outside of the party venue while Swift calmed down.
As you may recall, Gyllenhaal and Swift dated for two months in 2011 through November. However, the actor abruptly called it off right before the holidays, giving Swift major ammunition for several of her songs on Red.
