“Twilight: New Moon”Â star Taylor Lautner and country singer Taylor Swift have broken up and were reportedly never that serious.
“It was never a big deal to begin with. The media made way more out of it than it is,” a source close to Swift told People magazine. “They went out on a few dates and realized this was just not going anywhere.”
A source for Lautner said that distance was also a factor.
“They became good friends and then went out a few times, but he lives in L.A. and she lives in Nashville and their busy schedules kept it from becoming more than it was,” the source told People.
Representatives for Lautner and Swift had no comment.
Lautner and Swift were spotted together several times, including an L.A. Kings hockey game and getting cozy over frozen yogurt in Los Angeles.Â Lautner also attended a couple of Swiftâ€™s concerts. The two reportedly met while filming the upcoming movie â€œValentineâ€™s Day.â€
The day after Lautner, 17, made a â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€ appearance in which he â€œdefendedâ€ Swiftâ€™s honor, he flew to Nashville to surprise Swift for her 20th birthday party, People reported.Â The two reportedly decided sometime after the party that it made more sense to just remain friends.
