Taylor Swift fans take aim at her ex Jake Gyllenhaal after she releases new edition of breakup album

Taylor Swift fans have taken aim at her ex Jake Gyllenhaal, after she released a new edition of her iconic breakup album ‘Red’ on Friday.

The songstress dropped a re-recorded version of her 2012 album this morning, which features six previously unreleased tracks – which were written at the same time as the original.

A number of songs on the record are believed to be about her 2011 split from Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal, and they don’t paint him in the best light.

On I Bet You Think About Me, Taylor sings: “You can’t help who you fall for, and you and I fell like an early spring snow. But reality crept in, you said we’re too different. You laughed at my dreams, rolled your eyes at my jokes.”

“Mr. Superior Thinking, do you have all the space that you need? I don’t have to be your shrink to know that you’ll never be happy, and I bet you think about me.”

“I bet you think about me when you say, ‘Oh my God, she’s insane, she wrote a song about me’.

An extended version of her popular song All Too Well, which is ten-minutes long, also features on the album.

The emotional track, which was allegedly written about her failed romance with Jake, sheds light on their heartbreaking split.

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.”

The new version of the song also references a story told on another song from Red called ‘The Moment I Knew’, where Jake disappointed her by skipping her 21st birthday party.

Taylor sings: “You, who charmed my dad with self-effacing jokes, sipping coffee like you were on a late night night show. But then he watched me watch the front door, all night, willing you to come, and he said, ‘It’s supposed to be fun, turning 21.'”

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.

Red is the second album that Taylor has re-recorded and released, after her back catalogue was sold by Scooter Braun last year.

The music mogul obtained control of the singer’s masters when his company Ithaca Holdings acquired Big Machine Label Group in June 2019.

Scooter has since sold her master rights to a private equity company for a rumoured $300 million.

Earlier this year, Taylor dropped the new version of her 2008 album Fearless, which contained six new songs that had never been heard before.
