Taylor Swift is starting “to crack,” according to Us Weekly. The magazine alleges the singer is beginning to fall apart in the wake of her split from Harry Styles, and after being “humiliated” by public jabs.
“The breakup killed her,” a so-called “insider” tell Us Weekly, which goes on to claim that losing to Adele at the Golden Globes, being the target of a Tina Fey quip, and having Michael J. Fox say he’d prefer she stay away from his son all worsened the situation for Swift. The tab’s source explains, “It wasn’t the week she could take a joke. She feels like a loser in love, and doesn’t have many friends anymore,” claims the insider for Us Weekly. Selena Gomez has been been helping Taylor cope recently but the source claims the friends are now growing apart
According to the magazine, “Swift is focusing on what she can control: her looks. The singer has been carefully monitoring what she eats — while also drinking more than usual,” reports the Us Weekly source. The magazine goes so far as to quote its insider as saying “loved ones are worried she won’t make it through” her upcoming tour.
Wow. As in wow, did Us Weekly go overboard here. While anyone would be upset after a breakup and less than thrilled to be joked about, the implication that Swift is beginning to “crack” and have a booze-fueled meltdown that’s threatening her tour schedule is totally untrue. A source close to Swift assures Gossip Cop she’s “doing great” and eager for her tour to begin, calling the Us Weekly report “completely false.”
Selena Gomez: Taylor is my "best friend in the entire world"
At a UNICEF event in New York City over the weekend, Gomez described Swift as her "best friend in the entire world" and "one of the most inspirational, positive, good-hearted people that I know. I met her when she was 18. This is before Fearless came out, and it was absolutely incredible to see someone so successful and so humble. I think she has been a big part of me kind of staying the way I am too."
