Taylor Swift And Joe Alwyn Breakup refers to the split of American singer Taylor Swift and British actor Joe Alwyn after a six-year relationship in April 2023. The split news was revealed by People Magazine and inspired numerous memes and reactions on social media from fans.


On April 8th, 2023, PEOPLE Magazine[1] announced that Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have broken up after six years of dating. The information was shared by a source close to the couple, says the magazine, which also mentions the absence of Alwyn during Swift's new Eras tour "at which the actor hasn't been spotted." The YouTube[7] channel E! News explained the breakup story on April 9th, garnering 65,485 views and 653 likes in a day (seen below).


As of April 10th, 2023, neither Taylor Swift nor Joe Alwyn have released any official statement confirming the split. However, a source close to the couple revealed to PEOPLE Magazine[6] on April 10th that "Joe Alwyn struggled with Taylor Swift’s level of fame, leading to their breakup."

Online Reactions

The lack of official news from the couple led to a storm of memes of fans suffering and anguishing over Swift's songs that she wrote about Alwyn. For example, the Brazilian Twitter[2] account @tracklist posted about nine songs by Swift that became trending topics on the platform after the split announcement. The tweet received 11,800 likes and 1,671 retweets in two days (seen below).
