Taylor Swift and model, Karlie Kloss, have never been shy about their close friendship, but a report last week said the two women were living together. The article seemed to hint that there was something more there than just a friendship.
“It seems the 24-year-old country singer has found her soulmate,” the Daily Mail reported in an article, citing “anonymous sources.”
But on Monday, the article disappeared from the newspaper’s website.
According to Gawker, neither Swift or Kloss challenged the story.
“Taylor and Karlie have grown very close,” the article continued. “They are inseparable. Taylor wanted someone to live with her, to have some company, and Karlie jumped at the chance to move in with her friend. They spent a lot of time together before Karlie moved in but now they are rarely apart. They do everything together, from visits to the gym to going on road trips.”
Kloss’ spokesperson finally commented on the story, telling Gawker, “Karlie and Taylor do not live together and have no plans to live together. The Daily Mail did not verify the facts of the story prior to publishing it.”
The story was removed, just like another story the Daily Mail published a few months ago. The newspaper’s story that time was about the family of Amal Alamuddin, George Clooney’s fiancée. In that case, Clooney publicly denounced the report.
“The original story never cites that source, but instead goes out of its way to insist on four different occasions that ‘a family friend’ spoke directly to the Mail,” Clooney wrote. “A ‘family friend’ was the source. So either they were lying originally or they’re lying now.”
The Daily Mail had first said they would investigate the story, but then pulled it down because they “accept Mr. Clooney’s assurances that the story is inaccurate.”
