It’s been quite a relationship roller coaster this year for Taylor Swift. Her breakup from Calvin Harris totally shocked us, while her split from Tom Hiddleston was a little more expected. Now that she’s single again — and spending plenty of time with her epic #girlsquad along with getting ready for her one and only performance of the year — the buzz has already started about who might be the next inspiration for the singer’s love songs. If you were to play matchmaker and set Tay up with her next bae, who would you choose? Possibly Ben Affleck? Because that may be the new man in Taylor Swift’s life.
According to reports from the folks over at Gossip Cop, Taylor apparently “made a major impression” on Ben when the two met at one of her concerts last year. Ben, who recently divorced Jennifer Garner, was said to be “totally blown away by Taylor’s beauty and charming personality.”
But that’s not where it ended. “After the show, Ben asked his Suicide Squad co-star Cara Delevingne to put them in touch,” a source claims, saying “the pair soon struck up a friendship… that started off as innocent texts, but those messages have become much more flirtatious, especially after [Taylor Swift] split from Tom [Hiddleston].” Oh my!
The source also added, “She’s made it clear to Ben that she’s interested — and Taylor always gets what she wants. She’s hoping to turn their friendship into a full-blown romance.”
Hmm. Could it be true? Are TayBen or Swaffleck Hollywood’s new hottest couple or just no?
