Taylor Swift is a sucker for fairy tales, so it comes as no surprise that the country singer may be twisting her own reality into something it’s not.
The chart topper has been caught in a string of fibs lately that imply she might be losing track of that fine line between what’s real and what’s...well, not.
She Says: “Since 2010 I have dated exactly two people,” referring to Conor Kennedy, 18, and One Direction singer Harry Styles, 18.
The Truth: In 2011, the country singer was photographed on a dinner date with on-again off-again boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal, 32.

On Keeping Her Boyfriends in Sight—
She Says: “People say that about me, that I apparently buy houses near every boy I like,” the country singer told Vanity Fair’s April 2013 issue.

Taylor better watch out! Sometimes the truth comes back with a vengeance… and she knows all about that.
