The internet can be a strange and confusing place. One minute, you’re minding your own business, and the next, you’re the subject of a wild rumor that has taken on a life of its own. For Dianna Agron and Taylor Swift, that rumor was #SwiftGron, a supposed romantic relationship between the two that had fans buzzing for years.
It’s unclear where the rumors started, but they seemed to gain traction in 2012 when Jimmy Kimmel asked Agron about them during an appearance on his show. “Wouldn’t that be juicy?” she quipped at the time, according to Us Weekly. But despite the speculation, Agron maintained that there was nothing romantic going on between her and Swift.
In a 2018 interview with Rolling Stone, Agron finally cleared the air about the rumors. “I mean, there have been many stories about my dating life that are so wildly untrue,” she said. “That’s funny.” She went on to explain that while she and Swift were friends, she was not the inspiration for the song “22,” as some had speculated. “But I would not be the person to ask about that,” she added. “I cannot claim that!”
So, if Agron wasn’t dating Swift, who was she seeing? According to E! News, she was romantically linked to artist Harold Ancart following her split from Mumford & Sons’ Winston Marshall. Meanwhile, Swift was rumored to be dating The 1975 frontman Matty Healy. “Taylor and Matty like each other,” a source told ET. “Taylor has a crush on Matty and they are having a good time hanging out. Matty also thinks Taylor is awesome and incredibly talented, too. They dated briefly in the past.”
While the #SwiftGron rumors may have been nothing more than a figment of the internet’s imagination, it’s clear that both Agron and Swift have had their fair share of high-profile relationships over the years. Swift, in particular, has been the subject of endless speculation about her dating life, with many of her songs thought to be inspired by her past romances.
But despite all the rumors and speculation, both Agron and Swift have managed to maintain successful careers and stay true to themselves. Whether they’re dating or not, they continue to inspire fans around the world with their music, acting, and activism. And who knows? Maybe one day they’ll collaborate on a song or project that will blow us all away. Until then, we’ll just have to keep guessing and enjoying their amazing work.
