Rumor has it, Taylor Swift has a new man in her life. Everyone around her is denying it, but with that said – they always deny. So who is this lucky guy? His name is John John Florence, and he’s not 18! (Is that all we need to know?). Taylor certainly has a thing for younger men, although he’s not as young as she’s been going for lately (which was barely-legal). John John is 20 to her 23. Not bad.
He’s a pro surfer, and looks it, doesn’t he? He’s got that all-American-surfer-boy look.
Here’s more on their budding romance from E!:
It doesn’t sound like Taylor Swift is angling to catch a wave with John John Florence. Rumor has it that the 23-year-old singer recently initiated contact with rather adorable 20-year-old pro surfer and that the pair have been growing closer via text message ever since. Or not.
Sources assure E! News that “there is no truth to this at all,” and that “Taylor is not dating—or texting—this guy.”
She could do worse than the Hawaiian-born Florence, who won the Vans World Cup of Surfing in 2011, but it does seem far-fetched that she’d be embarking on such a thing at this time.
Swift is on her way to Charlotte, N.C., having just kicked off her Red Tour last week. And, last we checked, that’s a long way from Hawaii.
The romantic tale appears to have been spurred on by Florence’s response when an Australian TV reporter asked him two weeks ago during a surfing event in Queensland if he could provide some insight into “a little bit of something” she had heard about him and Swift.
“Yeah, you know, it’s kind of a secret thing going on right now,” he replied, smiling. “Can’t bust it out in the public just yet.”
What do you think? Would they make a cute couple? I get why Taylor wouldn’t admit to dating anyone. Whenever she does, she really does get crucified for it. She can’t have a normal relationship anymore. With that said – it’s TOTALLY her fault. Everytime she has a relationship, she’s the one who writes a song about her ex, leaving the whole world (yes, the whole world) to try and figure out who the song is about. She totally deserves the grief.
