Taylor Lautner admits Taylor Swift ‘absolutely’ broke up with him

Taylor Lautner is getting real about the end of his relationship with Taylor Swift.

During a recent appearance on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast, host Alex Cooper congratulated Lautner on being named “Taylor’s best ex” by Swifties. The two dated in 2009, and after their breakup, Swift released the song, “Back to December,” which is thought to be about their relationship.

Cooper jokingly asked Lautner what actually happened in December.

You don’t want to know,” Lautner responded. When Cooper asked if he doesn’t want to talk about it because it was when she ended their relationship, Lautner replied, “Yes, absolutely.”

While the two didn’t work out in romance, they managed to remain friendly after their breakup.

Obviously, every relationship is different. I think when you respect somebody for who they are, like in their soul, it allows you to move on, forgive and continue that love in a different way. And, thankfully, we had that,” Lautner explained. “We would see each other now and then, but we then did fall out of touch, and we didn’t talk for a while. But I’ve always had the deepest respect for who she is as a person before anything else.”

Lautner and Swift recently reunited when he appeared in the music video for her song “I Can See You (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault).” He then joined her on stage in Kansas City during her Eras Tour.

“Honestly, I would say one of the greater things to happen in my life over the last year is the rekindling of our friendship,” he said. “Above anything else that she is, she is just a wonderful human. And she’s pretty great to have in your life.”
