Jake Gyllenhaal has stepped out for his first event since his ex Taylor Swift re-released a song about their breakup.
The former couple briefly dated in 2011 and the following year, Taylor released her iconic breakup album ‘Red’.
A number of the songs on the album are believed to be about her split from Jake, including ‘All Too Well’.
In the song, Taylor points out their 11-year age gap as she sings about their breakup.
The lyrics read: “They say all’s well that ends well, but I’m in a new hell every time you double-cross my mind. You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine, and that made me want to die.”
“The idea you had of me, who was she? A never needing ever lovely jewel whose shine reflects on you, not weeping in a party bathroom. Some actress asking me what happened, you, that’s what happened, you.”
Taylor released a new edition of her album ‘Red’ last week, which features six previously unreleased tracks and a 10-minute version of ‘All Too Well’.
As well as the new album, Taylor released a music video for the breakup anthem starring Dylan O’Brien and Sadie Sink, which has been viewed over 28million times since it was released on Saturday.
After shedding more light on her split from Jake on the new version of Red, Swifties have taken to Twitter to slam her former flame.

Amid the drama, Jake attended the Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards on Saturday in support of his sister Maggie, who won the breakthrough director award for her directorial debut ‘The Lost Daughter’.
The actor also presented an award to Mandell Winter and David Esparza, the sound editors for his Netflix flick ‘The Guilty’.
Taylor is set to release another music video for her From The Vault track ‘I Bet You Think About Me’, also believed to be about her split from Jake later today.
The singer’s close friend and actress Blake Lively directed the video.
