Taylor Swift has reportedly taken aim at John Mayer in a new song which appears to suggest the pair enjoyed a brief romance which turned sour.
The country star is known for writing about her love life in her tracks and famously blasted her ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas, who ended their romance in a 30-second phone call, in a song called Forever and Always.

Swift spent a lot of time with Mayer in 2009 as they collaborated on a song for his last album, Battle Studies, and rumours of a romance surfaced, although neither of the stars confirmed the story.

The 20 year old’s new record Speak Now features a track called Dear John, which has prompted speculation she has finally opened up about her rumoured fling with 32-year-old Mayer.

And the gossip has been fuelled by the song’s lyrics which are said to reference an age-gap in a romance which ended badly.

Swift reportedly sings, “Dear John / I see it all now that you’re gone / Don’t you think I was too young / To be messed with / The girl in the dress/ Cried the whole way home / I should’ve known.”

She later adds, “It was wrong / Don’t you think nineteen’s too young / To be played / By your dark, twisted games / When I loved you so… My mother accused me of losing my mind / But I swore I was fine… You’ll add my name to your long list of traitors who don’t understand / And I’ll look back in regret I ignored what they said / ‘Run as fast as you can’.”
