EXCLUSIVE: THE REAL REASON BEHIND KATY & TAYLOR’S TRUCEMay 18, 2018
By Brodie Cooper
While two singers have been at each other’s throats behind closed doors for over four years, it took the help of their romantic partners to finally quash the beef.
Los Angeles sources say that Orlando Bloom and Joe Alwyn set the peace process in motion after discussions with friends and business associates.
Orlando and Joe share management teams at London’s Independent Talent Group, whose handlers spoke about one another.
Orlando is a fan of the younger actor, and made it clear that “they have no beef.” The interaction between their handlers, then lead to Joe revealing that “Orlando was a hero of his as a teen.”
The source added: “Orlando was keen to make sure that what was happening in their personal lives with their significant others would not spill into their professional work. Orlando made it clear that he admired Joe’s talents and wished him the best with his career. His attitude was ‘just because Katy has an issue with Taylor – doesn’t mean I do with either of you.’ After the message, Joe came back to say that he had absolutely no interest in any feuds and was a big fan of Orlando. Around Christmas, the message also came through that Taylor also had no issues with Orlando despite his relationship with Katy. The two actors then took their messages back to their girlfriends and then a few weeks later this feud died down. It is not a coincidence that happened after such a long stale mate. It just needed a different approach to defrost the situation.”
After years of feuding, the “I Kissed A Girl” singer recently sent Tay Tay a literal olive branch on the first night of her new tour.
The “Shake It Off” diva reacted to Katy’s handwritten note, by posting a video on Instagram Stories stating: “This means so much to me.”

The pop stars went to war over claims that Katy stole her rival’s tour dancers a few years ago.
Taylor enacted her revenge by releasing her 2015 hit “Bad Blood” and then put her entire music catalog on streaming services on June 8, 2017, the same day Katy’s Witness album dropped.
Taylor is currently enjoying rave reviews on her Reputation Stadium Tour.
She opened up about her trademark snake imagery.
“A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media, and it caught on. Then, a lot of people were calling me a lot of things on social media. And I went through some really low times for awhile because of it. I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was going to get to do this anymore.”
Swift’s comments are understood to reference to Kanye after he called her a “b****” and attributed her crossover success to him in the song “Famous.”
