taylor swift john john florence getty Taylor Swift's new boyfriend is John John Florence? 'No truth to the rumor,' says sourceRumors are swirling that Taylor Swift has moved on from One Direction singer Harry Styles to bleached-blonde surfer John John Florence. But a source says the rumors are false.

It started because a source tells Life & Style, “He and Taylor have been text-messaging. Apparently she contacted him. I don’t think they have hung out yet. They’ve just been chatting.”

The rumors heated up because Florence was asked on an Australian television program about the relationship and he played it coy, saying, “Yeah, you know, it’s kind of a secret thing going on right now. Can’t bust it out in public just yet.” (Video below, skip ahead to about the 6:20 mark)


However, a source tells E! News that “there is no truth to this at all” and that Taylor is “not dating or texting this guy.”

Well, she could do worse than a cute, award-winning surfer dude from Hawaii, right? And what would the inevitable break-up song be called?

“You Paddled Out With My Heart”?

“Life’s a Beach, ‘Til You Break Up”?
