LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
“Twilight Saga” star Taylor Lautner and singer Taylor Swift have broken up, according to Us Weekly.
“It wasn’t really developing into anything, and wasn’t going to, so they decided they were better as friends,” a source close to the country cutie, who turned 20 earlier this month, told the mag. “There was no chemistry.”
In recent months, Lautner, 17, and Swift, had been spotted out and about together, but despite hinting at their rumored relationship during their appearances on “Saturday Night Live,” the two never confirmed they were dating. However, they were photographed looking close as they attended a hockey game in October and the film star was even present at one of Swift’s concerts where she gave him an extended hug in front of the audience.
Earlier this month, the co-stars reportedly did some additional filming for “Valentine’s Day,” the film set they met on, and were spotted looking cosy in Los Angeles afterward as they stepped out for dinner at Benihana and desert at Menchies Yogurt in Beverly Hills.
According to Us Weekly, Lautner flew to Nashville, Tenn., earlier this month for Swift’s birthday on December 13, but the relationship didn’t work out.
“He liked her more than she liked him,” a source close to Swift told the mag. “He went everywhere he could to see her, but she didn’t travel much to see him.”
But the source said this break-up may not provide the same kind of fire Swift’s split with Joe Jonas, who is rumored to have dumped the country cutie via voicemail, did.
“They plan to stay friends,” the source added
