Times have sure changed since the days Taylor Swift Instagrammed countless photos hanging out with her girl gang, and now we consider ourselves lucky on the days she graces us with videos of her cats doing yoga or the slightest music video hint.
Reputation era Taylor has steered clear from the spotlight, and she’s managed to keep her relationships and friendships completely on the DL, including her ongoing love affair with Joe Alwyn. In fact, she’s been rumored to be spending so much time with Joe, that the couple’s close friends joke that the two are practically living together.
However, one of Taylor’s closest friends, who chose to remain anonymous, doesn’t seem all that thrilled about the shift in priorities, as she reportedly spilled all sorts of tea to the publication Grazia, saying QUOTE, “Celebrity friendships are weird. You don’t see each other for forever, and you accept that – but Taylor’s gone off-grid in a big way since meeting Joe.”
The high-profile former friend of Taylor’s also allegedly went on to claim that Tay has recently asked some of her squad members not to publicly comment on her, saying QUOTE, “I even heard about people getting requests not to mention her in interviews. It’s hard when that’s all you’re asked about, but Taylor is hyper-sensitive. I guess you have to be high-maintenance to become the biggest pop star in the world.”
Ok, so for one, I wouldn’t want to be constantly talked about during interviews, but is anyone else sensing some serious bitterness here? But thankfully, a second insider opened up to the outlet, claiming that the friendships aren’t over – just the way she hangs out with her girl friends has changed. They said, “Taylor’s been keeping a low profile, but there hasn’t been a big fall-out," the source said. "She was stung by claims her squad was elitist and prefers to spend time with close friends one-on-one at the moment.”
We all know that once a guy comes into the picture, some things may change, priorities shift, but the insider also revealed that Tay’s have shifted so much that if things with Joe don’t work out, she may have some major damage control. She said QUOTE, “Since meeting Joe, her priorities have shifted, and everyone’s hoping for her sake that it works out. If it doesn’t, she may find herself having to make some awkward reparations.”
Taylor has noticeably refrained from posting photos with friends, and has also been rumored to be on the outs with her former best friend Karlie Kloss, but we do have to keep in mind that she’s also busy prepping for a world tour, so it only makes sense her priorities are elsewhere… but I want to hear from you guys – do you think Taylor’s time with Joe is causing separation from her squad, or do these alleged sources seem a little bitter?
