Taylor Swift’s publicist has hit out at rumours that the popstar secretly married ex-partner Joe Alywn.

Tree Paine accused anonymous celebrity gossip account, Deuxmoi, of causing “pain and trauma” after it made the claims.

In an Instagram Story, Deuxmoi said the Cruel Summer hitmaker married Joe in 2020 or 2021 in a non-legal ceremony.

“Enough is enough with these fabricated lies about Taylor from Deuxmoi,” Tree wrote on X/Twitter.

“There was NEVER a marriage or ceremony of ANY kind.”

News of Taylor and Joe splitting made headlines in May 2023, with the Shake It Off star since being linked with NFL player Travis Kelce.

Deuxmoi later responded to Tree’s post, writing that they “make zero dollars from lying”, then querying “can publicists say the same”.

“Either way, I apologise to Taylor,” the post ended.

Tree has led Taylor’s publicity team since 2014, and has often been seen at events with Taylor, such as the London premiere of BeyoncĂ©’s Renaissance tour film.

The 12-time Grammy award winner previously told a fan that Tree “tells me what to do”.

Taylor has just released You’re Losing Me on streaming services, which many fans think is about the decline of her and Joe’s relationship.

But Jack Antonoff, Taylor’s collaborator, said the song was recorded on 5 December 2021 – before Joe and Taylor split.

What is Deuxmoi?

The account has over two million followers on Instagram and claims to be a “curator of pop culture”.

It’s known for posting anonymous messages from unverified sources about celebrities – covering everything from relationship news to music, film and product releases.

“Some statements made on this account have not been independently confirmed,” Deuxmoi’s Instagram bio reads.

“This account does not claim information published is based in fact.”

It also posts pictures of celebrities submitted by followers, which fans have snapped when they’re out and about.

The owner of the account prefers to stay anonymous, though MailOnline claimed it was a woman behind the account in 2022.

Speaking to the site, Deuxmoi said she wasn’t an “investigative journalist”.
