Taylor Swift’s ex Joe Alwyn trends on social media as he draws comparisons to Dalton Gomez amid divorce news with Ariana Grande: ‘These men can’t handle boss a** women’
Joe Alwyn was a trending topic on social media late Monday, as fans were quick to mention Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend in comparing him to Ariana Grande’s estranged husband Dalton Gomez amid news of the pop star’s separation.
The theme in many of the posts was that Gomez, a 27-year-old real estate agent, like Alwyn, a 32-year-old actor, was ultimately ill-equipped to deal with the high-profile lifestyle that accompanies being the significant other of an A-list popstar.
News broke of Grande, 30, splitting Monday – with a source close to the celeb couple telling DailyMail.com that ‘the marriage just simply didn’t work out’ – more than three months after Swift parted with Alwyn in April following a six-year romance.
Sources told TMZ that Grande’s massive fame hampered the relationship, citing her hectic schedule taking her to international locales, and the ubiquity of the paparazzi.
Following Swift’s split from Alwyn, reports surfaced that the actor’s relationship with the Grammy-winning superstar was hampered amid the end of the pandemic, as the A-list artist returned to her hectic schedule.
