According to The Sun, the “Shake It Off” singer, who has kept out of the spotlight for months, and Alwyn — who most recently wrapped filming alongside Swift’s pal Emma Stone in The Favorite — have been seeing each other for months.

Swift, 27, has allegedly been stepping out in London in disguises to keep things on the down-low and has even rented a London pad to be near her new beau, 26, who The Sun reports still lives with his parents.

“Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship,” The Sun reports. “But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet.”

As fans are well aware, Swift and Hiddleston called it quits in September 2016 after a whirlwind — and globe-trotting — three month-long relationship that kicked off at the 2016 Met Gala.

Katy Perry Signs On To Judge ‘American Idol’ Reboot

She got the golden ticket! Katy Perry has officially signed on to be a judge on ABC’s “American Idol” reboot. The announcement was confirmed at the network’s upfront presentation on Tuesday, May 16.

Fox Executives Blast ABC’s “American Idol”:
“I am honored and thrilled to be the first judge bringing back the American Idol tradition of making dreams come true for incredible talents with authentic personalities and real stories,” Perry said via a press release. “I’m always listening to new music, and love discovering diamonds in the rough — from mentoring young artists on my label, or highlighting new artists on my tours, I want to bring it back to the music.”

The “Bon Appetit” singer hinted at the gig during an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ show on Tuesday, May 16. After DeGeneres asked her about the rumors, Perry subtly hinted she was on board.

“Judge not, lest you be judged, but they didn’t say anything about constructive criticism, and I’m good at that,” Perry said with a smile.
