It seems that Taylor Swift and Ben Affleck might be a couple. According to some new rumors, the two stars have hooked up. The rumor is not that shocking considering that both Taylor and Ben are single now.
The dating rumor emerged with a report from In Touch magazine. The report indicated that Ben is a rebound for the young singer. Taylor has recently broken up from famous actor Tom Hiddleston. The two dated only for a few months, but they definitely seemed to be amazingly close. Well, now it seems that Taylor has found a new love interest.
On the other hand, Ben has been single since his divorce from his famous wife, Jennifer Garner. Some rumors indicated that the Batman actor was planning on reconciling with his former wife. Well, according to In Touch, Ben and Taylor met last year backstage at a 1989 World Tour. A source told the celebrity site that Ben was “totally blown away by Taylor’s beauty and charming personality.”
“After the show, Ben asked his ‘Suicide Squad’ co-star Cara Delevingne to put them in touch,” the same source explained. And it seems that they have become friends. “The pair soon struck up a friendship. It started off as innocent texts, but those messages have become much more flirtatious, especially after Taylor split from Tom. She’s made it clear to Ben that she’s interested – and Taylor always gets what she wants,” it concluded.
The source explained that Taylor is now ready to take things to the next level and she actually wants a serious romance with the famous actor. On the other hand, Ben has a crush on the young singer, so he is surely agreeing with this idea. “He’s had a crush on Taylor since they first met and feels like they have a real connection,” the source said. “He’s slowly paving a way for a romance.”
The fact that such a report emerged is not shocking at all. In fact, Ben recently praised Taylor, saying that his two daughters are huge Taylor fans and have recently met her.
