The latest buzz in Taylor Swift's romantic life is the stuff her frenemies may like to cackle at.
New York Daily News previously reported that the country music artist "was in hot pursuit" of British actor Douglas Booth. The newspaper's insider revealed details of Tay's attempts to snare the 21-year-old rising star back in November and the "cold shoulder" treatment she got from him in return.
"Taylor kept on making an effort to flirt with Douglas, but he gave her the cold shoulder and was extremely dismissive towards her," the publication's mole said. "She would get a drink and then approach him; she would chat with [actress] Hailee Steinfeld and then re-approach him; she was even trying to chat him up near the flowers on display. It was all very funny for those of us watching."
Aside from that, the statuesque singer was also heard "whining and complaining" to Hailee, who co-starred with Douglas in 'Romeo and Juliet', about the actor's aloofness while they were touching up their make up.
The publication went on to say that they were soon spotted dating after that. But Douglas was reportedly "quite taken aback about how keen Taylor was" and just wanted to be friends with her, a friend of his said.
Okay, so if they did get to hang out, she didn't exactly get the "cold shoulder" then?
Another "source" confirmed to Gossip Cop that the young stars are indeed "friends." The said informant also added that there's "no drama whatsoever" involved between the two.
Previously, the 23-year-old artist told Elle in an interview that she "never chase boys."
"I'm sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumour it would say I'm chasing somebody who doesn't like me as much as I like him-people love that angle on me. They're like 'Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.' I never chase boys. They don't like it!" the lovely singer said.
