Country singer Taylor Swift and "New Moon" actor Taylor Lautner have split, Us Magazine reports.
The Taylors' romance fizzled after Lautner, 17, reportedly flew to Nashville for Swift's birthday party Dec. 13.
A close friend of Swift, 20, told Us, "It wasn't really developing into anything, and wasn't going to, so they decided they were better as friends. There was no chemistry."
The pair, who had been dating for three months, met on the set of the romantic comedy "Valentine's Day." Although they kept their romance private, the two coyly alluded to their relationship when both hosted "Saturday Night Live." Swift blew a kiss to Lautner during her monologue, and Lautner used his Martial Arts skills to behead a dummy of Kanye West during his, making light of standing idly by when Swift was steamrolled by West at the VMAs during her acceptance speech for best video.
Swift and Lautner are likely to be seen together again on the red carpet when they will be promoting "Valetine's Day," out Feb. 12.

New Moon star Taylor Lautner to play wrestler in remake of Vision Quest
By now, everyone has seen Taylor Lautner flex his athletic muscles as a werewolf in "New Moon" and recently at an appearance on Saturday Night Live in which he showed off his martial arts skills and beheaded a Kanye West-like mannequin. But can Taylor Lautner wrestle and pin down the competition for a starring role in a remake of the 1985 romance flick Vision Quest.
According to the Daily News, Taylor Lautner has already read a script for the Vision Quest remake and is very excited about the project.
The role would not be much of a stretch for the martial arts award winning actor. The plot centers around a high school wrestler who decides to drastically drop pounds in order to meet the requirements for a much lower weight class and defeat his greatest opponent. The wrestler meets an older woman who was taken in as a boarder by his father and later falls in love with her.
(Sounds a bit like "the Graduate" with Dustin Hoffman. Wouldn't it be great to hear Taylor say "Are you seducing me Ms. Robinson?"
Did you know? The original Vision Quest film featured the first onscreen appearance of none other than the great Madonna, but no news has been released indicating that Madonna will also have a cameo in the remake.
(Sorry I haven't updated, I finally found sometime to update because you know, it's christmas vacation.)
In early 2008, li'l Taylor Lautner was getting his learner's permit, hoping "Twilight" might get him some attention, and trying on his itchy Jacob wig for the first time. Now he's on the cover of dozens of magazines, adored by fans and one of the hottest actors in Hollywood. Not bad for a 17-year-old — and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
2009 Highlights: As the calendar page turned to 2009, there were few entertainment stories as compelling as Taylor Lautner's crusade to convince the "Twilight" powers-that-be to employ his buff new bod for "New Moon," with co-stars like Ashley Greene, Elizabeth Reaser and Kristen Stewart among those firmly in his corner. The 17-year-old "Twilight" star spoke extensively about his dedication to the material and his workout regime, which delighted fans and convinced Chris Weitz that his casting search for Jacob was over before it really began.
Once he happily got back to work on the "Twilight Saga," Taylor surfaced only rarely to do things like unveiling first-look footage from "New Moon" at the MTV Movie Awards, or arriving at the Video Music Awards to debut an expanded trailer alongside co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Keeping his nose to the grindstone, Taylor left it up to others to determine whether he was "swoon-worthy."
One person who undoubtedly did swoon in 2009, however, was Taylor Swift. The country superstar struck up a supposed relationship with Lautner that built steadily as they shot the upcoming romantic comedy "Valentine's Day," a film in which their characters spent an entire day reportedly making out. Unfortunately, it also placed him at ground zero for one of the year's hugest controversies, as he presented Swift with a Video Music Award then watched as her acceptance speech was interrupted by Kanye West.
With the start of the "New Moon" promotional tour including a stop at Hot Topic, the young actor proved his movie-star powers when he arrived to fans chanting his name at the "New Moon" premiere. He also managed to land on the cover of both Rolling Stone (wet T-shirt and all) and Entertainment Weekly, and graced the couch of Conan O' Brien.
Getting back to work, Taylor started filming "Eclipse," and dropped by San Diego's Comic-Con to share near-kisses with Kristen. He helped unveil new footage from the movie and gave Bella a bike ride she'd never forget, and hung out with the geeks. Getting nerdy with the comic book geeks for the second consecutive year, Taylor seemed to be ascending nicely into his newfound status as a top-tier "Twilight" star.
As the flick hit theaters, Taylor told us exclusively about the "dark times" in retaining his role, what happened to all of his missing clothes, his love of fan-made trailers and why he won't translate the key phrase Jacob speaks in Quileuete.
Sure enough, his casting proved to be the right move, as "New Moon" not only broke the midnight screening record previously held by "Harry Potter," but also went on to become the third-highest opening weekend on record. So convincing was his portrayal of Jacob, in fact, that some Twilighters thought he deserved an Oscar nomination. Now, with "Eclipse" set for release next year, and the possible two-movie split of "Breaking Dawn" on the horizon, Taylor's future only looks brighter.
Some of you might be thinking: It was a great year for the "Twilight" stars, but how could Taylor finish higher in our rankings than Kristen or Rob? Well, for starters, his stock had a further journey to soar, and soar it did. Now he's a household name who recently achieved the honor of hosting "Saturday Night Live," the first "Twilight" star to do so. He spent the night making us laugh and partying into the wee hours, and now Hollywood seems on the verge of giving the muscle-bound rising star his own franchise. These days, it seems like it's Taylor's world — and we're all just living in it.

Taylor Lautner handed Saturday Night Live its highest rating of the season when he hosted the show on December 12th. That means, the 17 year old Twilight star attracted more viewers than his rumored girlfriend and November 7th SNL host, Taylor Swift.
During his hosting gig, Lautner showed off some impressive martial arts moves and decided it was finally time to stand up to Kanye West and defend Taylor Swift over the VMA saga.
According to TV by the Numbers SNL hosted by Taylor Launter with musical guest Bon Jovi, was also the number one show on the major networks that night.

Taylor Lautner Parties Until 4 A.M. After Hosting 'SNL'
After giving Kanye West a piece of his mind and spoofing his famous abs during his hosting stint on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, "New Moon" star Taylor Lautner still had a little energy left in him to enjoy the "SNL" afterparty.
The 17-year-old actor, along with the night's musical guest Jon Bon Jovi, hung with the cast of the show at New York hotspot Matsuri. While chilling out with "SNL" stars Andy Samberg and Seth Meyers, Lautner dined on a sirloin steak, according to MTV News sources.
Taylor Swift, Lautner's rumored girlfriend, was not at the party, despite the fact that she was in town the night before to perform at Z100's Jingle Ball. Lautner reportedly left the shindig at around 4 a.m., surrounded by bodyguards, while fans waited outside the restaurant to catch a glimpse of the star.
Lautner was the first Twilighter to host the famed comedy show. And when he wasn't taking a good-natured jab at the Swift romance rumors (much like she did when she hosted the show last month), he was joking about "Twilight" fans and the fact that he is shirtless during much of "New Moon."
"I took my shirt off a lot — too much, in fact," Lautner said in his monologue. "Even Matthew McConaughey told me to cool it."

In the eyes of some, you're not a real pop-culture icon until you've hosted "Saturday Night Live." And although this weekend may not have featured the long-lobbied-for appearance of Robert Pattinson, "Twilight" nonetheless took center stage for TV's late-night comedy institution, as 17-year-old Taylor Lautner became the first of the franchise's stars to rock the show.
Of course, his appearance kicked off with the monologue, arguably the most important moment for any host. Lautner's opening began with him bounding down the steps to greet the crowd in a red plaid shirt and black leather jacket. "It's great to be here hosting 'Saturday Night Live," he grinned. "I remember when 'SNL' first started — I was negative eighteen at the time." Appearing calm and comfortable, Taylor joked that in "New Moon," "I took my shirt off a lot — too much, in fact. Even Matthew McConaughey told me to cool it." Lautner's biggest laughs, however, came when he referenced his hotly rumored relationship with Taylor Swift — which Swift also referenced on the show in her opening-monologue song last month — and his failure to stand up for her at the MTV Video Music Awards when Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech. Showing a clip of him standing idly by, he said, "What I really wanted to do was this," and performed a series of dazzling martial-arts moves before beheading a cardboard cut-out of Kanye.
In the first of his several skits in the show, he played Phil Pomeroy, the nervous "backup-backup quarterback" for the University of Oregon. In the skit, Lautner posed for a between-play video clip shown of players during football games. It was a thinly-written sketch that called on Lautner to simply make faces at the camera, but his wincing, twitching and hand movements made it worthwhile.
Later, he and Abby Elliott played a married couple breaking the news that they're pregnant to several relatives — including Kristen Wiig's recurring character Sue, who can't handle secrets. The sketch was basically an excuse for Wiig to bring back one of her signature over-the-top creations and crash through the set, and was notable for a weird wig that made Lautner look like Josh Brolin's little brother.
Further along in the show, Lautner played "Mikash," one of four middle-school choir singers, clad in a red shirt, sparkly green vest and what appeared to be Jackson Rathbone's blonde Jasper wig. Delivering some sort of German accent, he rapped about Santa Claus, danced and got hit in the belly with a basketball — and busted out an impressive Michael Jackson moonwalk at the end of the sketch.
In the night's funniest skit, Taylor played "Marianna," a high school girl in a "Team Edward" T-shirt who is reluctantly paired with another girl in a "Team Jacob" tee. "How can I ever trust her scientific conclusions if she prefers Jacob to Edward?" he lisped, clad in a jean skirt, leggings and long-haired wig. "Jacob smells like a wet dog!" Spoofing girls who crush on Edward, Taylor even made out with a Robert Pattinson notebook at one point and insisted that Jacob had "CGI abs." "If those abs were real," he insists, "then the dude who played Jacob deserves an Oscar." Likely to become the viral clip of the episode, it's hard to understand why this wasn't the first sketch after the monologue.
Lautner's final sketch saw him back in a wig and this time flirting awkwardly with a girl. The joke here was Kenan Thompson playing an Isaac Hayes-like smooth-talker who cuts into the action and narrates the events, screaming "No!" when Lautner's character reveals a romance-killing love of Hobbits and declaration that "I'm also kinda unusually hairy." The sketch was lightly written but largely saved by Lautner, who, as he had throughout the night, showed off some impressive comedic chops as the first "Twilight" star to get live on Saturday night.
