Fernando Alonso’s recent social media activity has sparked rumours of a romantic relationship with pop star Taylor Swift.
The Spanish racing driver recently posted a video of himself lifting a 22kg dumbbell while Swift’s song “22” played in the background, captioned with “I’m lifting 22s”.
This follows an earlier post featuring Swift’s song “Karma” and an anonymous email on celebrity gossip account DeuxMoi claiming the two were seeing each other.
Alonso deflects dating rumours in interview
When asked about the rumours in an interview with Sky Sports, Alonso deflected the question and said he was focused on racing.
This shows a level of professionalism and dedication to his sport despite the attention surrounding his personal life.
Swift’s career takes priority in split from Joe Alwyn
Swift recently split from British actor Joe Alwyn, with sources citing the disparity in their careers as a factor.
A source close to Swift said that “Taylor’s career took priority over Joe’s – which can be awkward for a couple when it’s not balanced”.
Swift and Alwyn were reportedly together for six years and tried to save their relationship, but ultimately were unable to do so.
This highlights the difficulties that can arise when couples have disparities in their careers.
Analysis and commentary
Celebrity gossip and speculation is a common occurrence in the media, especially when it comes to high-profile figures like Taylor Swift and Fernando Alonso.
While the rumours of a romantic relationship between the two have not been confirmed, their social media activity has certainly fueled speculation.
For Alonso, the attention surrounding his personal life is not new, as he has been the subject of media scrutiny throughout his career.
However, his focus on racing and reluctance to engage with the rumours shows a level of professionalism and dedication to his sport.
Ultimately, whether or not Alonso and Swift are in a relationship is their own personal matter, and their social media activity should be taken with a grain of salt until further confirmation.
