Taylor Swift has found herself a surfer boy. The ‘I Knew You Were Trouble‘ warbler has reportedly moved on from One Direction stud Harry Styles with Hawaiian surfer John John Florence – nicknamed JJ – who she first met on a trip to Australia last November. A source told Britain’s Grazia magazine: ”Taylor really hit it off with JJ when she was in Oz. She thought he was great fun, but it was around the same time she reignited her romance with Harry Styles, so she put it on a back-burner.
”Taylor got in touch with JJ when she split from Harry and they went on a date when he was in America. Taylor and JJ both travel a lot for work but have planned a second date this month.” Professional surfer JJ appeared to confirm rumours the pair were dating when he was recently quizzed about their budding romance at a sporting event in Queensland, Australia.
He confessed: ”Yeah, you know, it’s kind of a secret thing going on right now. Can’t bust it out in the public just yet.” The 20-year-old sports star is the youngest person to have won the Vans World Cup of Surfing, and has a cameo role in Owen Wilson film ‘The Big Bounce’. An insider added: ”Taylor seems extremely keen on JJ. He’s quite different to anyone she’s dated in the past, and while he’s in the spotlight, it’s his prowess as a surfer that she admires.”
The 23-year-old blonde is famed for her ability to bounce back from a relationship quickly and was recently linked to BRIT Award-winning musician Tom Odell. She has previously dated Conor Kennedy, Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner and John Mayer. Talking about her colourful love life, the singer recently lamented: ”I have no idea if I’m going to get married or be single forever, or have a family or be on my own.” – Contactmusic
