All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter is another Hollywood star who dated Taylor Swift for a few months and may have inspired one of her famous break-up songs, Celebuzz is reporting. The ‘Heartbeat Slowing Down’ singer allegedly wasn’t into the ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ starlet’s world, and ultimately hurt her. Since Ritter is a private person, he wasn’t into the glamor and attention like Swift was, so he ended the relationship.
The two met in December 2011, between the time Swift dated Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor Kennedy, at the CMT Artists of the Year Awards. The All-American Rejects paid homage to her by singing her hit ‘Mean.’ They ran into each other backstage, and Ritter started talking to Swift, and the two subsequently went on a few dates. After they ended the casual relationship, which included just hanging out at their Los Angeles homes, it’s believed she later wrote ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ about him.
Ritter s now reportedly dating ‘Magic City’ actress Elena Satine. He tweeted her to get her attention, and they’ve reportedly been dating since July. Swift, meanwhile, recently ended her relationship with One Direction singer Harry Styles.
