In the latest heartbreak for Taylor Swift, Jake Gyllenhaal has reportedly broken off their whirlwind romance via telephone days before New Year's Eve.

The hot couple had been spotted on many dates late last year, looking very much smitten with each other. Taylor even spent Thanksgiving with Jake and his family!

Taylor is now left to analyse why she reached the "meet-the-family" stage only to have her new beau break it off without so much as a kiss goodbye. Wah!

Post-split, Taylor is distracting herself with a crazy exercise plan and has reportedly lost her appetite. Those close to her have been saying she is dull, dreary and nothing at all like her usual bubbly self.

"She didn’t eat anything, seemed very sad and definitely wasn’t having a good time," an insider said. "Taylor found Selena and said to her, ‘It’s so good to see you. I need a friend tonight.’”

Sadly, it would have been a case of deja vu for poor Taylor as she had the same experience with ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas who reportedly ended things in a 27-second phone call.

Considering Taylor's history of turning her sorrows into songs, at least the break-up will give Taylor plenty of inspiration for new material. We can't wait to hear the Jake saga unfold in lyrics!
