Taylor Swift is 'bummed' news got out about her new boyfriend
Taylor Swift's secret is out — and she's not very happy about it. An insider tells E! News Taylor's a little "bummed" the world knows about her new romance with British actor Joe Alwyn. "Taylor went to great lengths to keep their relationship private and out of the spotlight while [she and Joe] have been getting to know one another," the source says. "She has made several trips to see him, but always flies in and out on a private jet with lots of security and has been flying into very small and remote airports. If she was seen in England, she made sure everyone thought it was a work trip. Taylor and Joe have really tried to be on lockdown and have spent most of their time together in private locations where they could get to know each other without the pressure of a public relationship and people making judgement calls." Though she'd rather continue to keep the relationship out of the spotlight, the source says she's also "really excited about being with Joe and is hoping she can relax a little bit more now and just enjoy being with him."

"A huge line of ladies — including [society grande dame] Deeda Blair — were waiting for her to come out so they could go in." The line continued to grow longer before J. Lo finally emerged. "People were thinking Hillary [Clinton] or another politician must be in there, but Alex Rodriguez, standing off to the side on his phone, waiting, gave it away," said the partygoer.

"Claire and Francis are equivalent as far as their power, their union and the plot. I may not have as many scenes or words as Francis, but Claire doesn't need to verbalize as much. Francis is an orator, a poet, a demonstrator. Claire is an [ego] that sits in the back and directs him, but they are partners on the same plane. HuffPo reports Kevin was making $500,000 an episode before the Season 3 premiere in 2014, while Robin's average earnings have totaled about $420,000 an episode.
