“Where is this coming from,” she responds when asked if there’s any weight to the rumors. “I’ve just known Jake for a long time and he’s a great guy… and Chris has a friendship with Taylor.”

“Well, I’m scared to say,” she continues. “It’s so weird. I wonder how people find out these things. It was a while ago, so I don’t know why it would come out today.”

Truly, we couldn’t possibly imagine why people would be interested.
