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 doesnÃ¢â¬â¢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 Ã¢â¬Åthere is no truth to this at all,Ã¢â¬Â and that Ã¢â¬ÅTaylor is not datingÃ¢â¬âor textingÃ¢â¬âthis guy.Ã¢â¬Â
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 sheÃ¢â¬â¢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, thatÃ¢â¬â¢s a long way from Hawaii.
The romantic tale appears to have been spurred on by FlorenceÃ¢â¬â¢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 Ã¢â¬Åa little bit of somethingÃ¢â¬Â she had heard about him and Swift.
Ã¢â¬ÅYeah, you know, itÃ¢â¬â¢s kind of a secret thing going on right now,Ã¢â¬Â he replied, smiling. Ã¢â¬ÅCanÃ¢â¬â¢t bust it out in the public just yet.Ã¢â¬Â
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.
