Ever since 2012 there have been rumors from Swift and Agron fans that the pop icon and the Glee star have dated. The two were seemingly besties for a while, meeting at the height of Agron’s Glee fame in 2011. They stopped being seen together a few years later, although not before there was enough evidence to convince some fans of a possible relationship between the two. In a 2012 interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Agron denies rumors surrounding a relationship between her and football star Tim Tebow. She was known to be dating Gossip Girl cast member, Sebastian Stan, at the time. Then Kimmel asked if she would date award winner Taylor Swift. Agron replied, “wouldn’t that be juicy?” She then turned to the camera, said, “hi Taylor,” and blew a playful kiss. Neither one has publicly confirmed that they ever dated, but that doesn’t stop their fans from wistful thinking.

Although is it just wistful thinking? There are lots of theories circulating the internet that Taylor could be queer, making a relationship between Agron and Swift more plausible. Aside from rumors with Agron, Swift has also been rumored to have been in a serious relationship with model Karlie Kloss. Paparazzi and media outlets always called the two best friends, but many speculate the two dated. The song ‘Cornelia Street’ is rumored to be about her. In 2019, Taylor Swift fans were also left wondering if Taylor had just come out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community upon releasing the music video for Me in 2019.
Dianna Agron has publicly dated men in the past, although there have been a few public contradictory clues that may allude to her potentially queer sexuality. In 2011, after wearing a shirt that says, “likes girls,” Agron took to her blog to deny rumors of being lesbian. She explains that she loves women because, “…the women in my life give me things that the men in my life can’t. And vice-versa.” Her entry continues to confirm that she isn’t a lesbian, but if she were, she hopes people would accept her wholeheartedly.
Speaking of Agron’s blog, it was called, “Down the Rabbit Hole.” Now would be a great time to remind you that Taylor Swift has a song called Wonderland. We’ll let you ruminate on that one…
obsessed with the fact that dianna agron’s Wikipedia explicitly lists taylor swift as a rumored romance

In 2016 Agron married Mumford and Sons guitarist Winston Marshall, but the couple recently divorced this past summer.
So despite all of the effort that has been made to try to confirm whether or not this relationship actually happened, and we are talking DETAILED Tumblr timelines and Reddit threads, nothing has been confirmed proving that Agron and Swift dated. But fans are still convinced Dianna listening to Cardigan was a clear sign of something, ESPECIALLY after her divorce.

Dianna Agron's divorce is making me want to relisten to the entire folklore album from a new perspective……

But at the end of the day, as much as some fans may want this relationship to have happened, it really isn’t ours to discuss.
glee stans need to stop with the dianna agron/taylor swift conspiracy theory it’s getting weird, creepy, and invasive leave them alone

If you aren’t fully well versed in Swift’s latest album, Folklore, by now, you are not only missing out on some seriously angsty, catchy songs but also missing out on one of the greatest love stories to be told during the pandemic.
If you are familiar with the album, you have definitely picked up on the fact that three of the songs on the album seem to correlate. Cardigan, August, and Betty each tell a similar story. It was confirmed by Swift herself that these songs are in fact the same story, told from different perspectives. The songs describe a painfully beautiful love triangle between three young friends, who are each left heart broken in because of each other.
After the initial release of the album, fans speculated who the love triangle could be about. Nobody thought for one second that Swift, famous for writing songs about past lovers, wrote a song about a story that was completely made up. Swift later confirmed that ‘James,’ from the love triangle, despite being named after a girl (Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ daughter), is in fact a heterosexual male. That was pretty blowing to many Swift fans rooting for it to have been a sapphic love story.
I wish Taylor had left James' gender ambiguous. Kaylor shipping is fun, but what I liked about the love triangle is that its not explicitly hetero. James could be girl considering it's Ryan and Blake's daughters name. In my head Betty is still queer. https://t.co/5227ZVPnLp

But there are still so many speculations about who could have been part of this sad love story. Many fans have looked to Swift’s previous works for clues.
anyways idk how to properly explain it but i feel like the love triangle taylor’s talking about in folklore is somehow connected to red album. babe music video is about a love triangle (also look at the date in the letter), girl at home is also about someone who’s cheated on her- pic.twitter.com/jCdEKOiMRR

Taylor Swift is always very intentional and pays very close attention to even the tiniest of details. There’s no way this love triangle story is random, right?
Guys got a new theory
Folklore has a love triangle which is cardigan, august, betty.
Track 2. Cardigan
Track 8. August
Track 14. Betty
Look each song has 6 song difference.
And the track 6 is mirrorball. Her mind👌 pic.twitter.com/VNG5upXwwQ

Could Dianna Agron be Taylor’s old cardigan or vice versa? Is the love triangle story behind the songs actually made up? Or was Dianna just trying to enjoy Taylor Swift’s latest album? As of right now, nothing has been confirmed about Agron being apart of a real life love triangle. But keep investigating, Swifties! We’ll leave this mystery up to you!
