Taylor Swift surprised the audience at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City during her sold-out Eras Tour by bringing her ex-boyfriend Taylor Lautner on stage.
The appearance of the ‘Twilight’ actor, who served as the inspiration for Swift’s song ‘Back To December’, was accompanied by actress Joey King and Presley Cash, both of whom collaborated with Swift in her new music video for the song ‘I Can See You (Taylor’s Version)’.
The music video, featuring all three actors, was released on the same day as Swift‘s album ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’, and the concert attendees were the first to witness its premiere.
Lautner made a grand entrance, surprising the ecstatic fans with a cartwheel and backflip as he descended the stage ramp.
Swift expressed her gratitude towards Lautner, acknowledging his positive influence during the creation of her ‘Speak Now’ album.
“He was a very positive force in my life when I was making the ‘Speak Now’ album, and I want to say he did every single stunt that you saw in that music video,” Swift said.
“He and his wife have become some of my closest friends, and it’s very convenient because we all share the same first name.”
For his part, Lautner expressed his respect for Swift as an artist and as a person.
“I respect you so much, not just for the singer you are, the songwriter, the performer, but truly for the human you are,” he said.
“You are gracious, humble, kind and I’m honored to know you.”
When did Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner date?
It was a long time ago that Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner were romantically involved, as they dated for a few months back in 2009.
That was after they met on the set of ‘Valentine’s Day’, first going public when they were seen attending a hockey game together.
Their relationship then ended in December of 2009, after which both stars tried to play it down.
“It was never a big deal to begin with, and the media made way more out of it than it is,” a source close to Taylor Swift told People.
