Which Ex-Boyfriend Is Taylor Swift's We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together About?

2 years ago

Taylor Swift's new song 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' has arrived, and the number one question on everyone's lips is which ex-boyfriend is she talking about?

The song is a break up tune about moving on and ending things for good with a boyfriend.

Taylor tells U.S. news show Nightline, "I was writing (in the studio)... and then this guy walks in, who was a friend of my ex's, and he starts talking about how he's heard that we were getting back together - and that was not the case.

"And so when he leaves, (Swift's songwriting partner Max Martin) was like, 'So what's the story behind that?' And so I start telling him this story of this break-up, get back together, break-up, get back together, just, ugh, the worst. I picked up a guitar and Max said, 'This is what we're writing...' It was so much fun."

Which ex is she talking about? Let's think. Definitely not John Mayer -- after Dear John we doubt they ever spoke to each other again. Jake Gyllenhaal? Don't think so. They had no contact after their relationship ended in December 2010.

How about Joe Jonas? In September last year there were a whole lot of rumours about the two of them testing their relationship out again. Or Taylor Lautner? Could be, they were photographed sitting next to each other at the Teen Choice Awards last year. It has to be one of them!

See what Joe told us about those relationship rumours!
