"Swift really hit it off with JJ when she was in Oz. She thought he was great fun, but it was around the same time she reignited her romance with Styles, so she put it on a back-burner," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying. "Swift got in touch with JJ when she split from Styles and they went on a date when he was in America. Swift and JJ both travel a lot for work but have planned a second date this month," the source added.
Professional surfer JJ rubbished the rumours when he was recently quizzed about their budding romance at a sporting event in Queensland, Australia. "Yeah, you know, it's kind of a secret thing going on right now. Can't bust it out in the public just yet," he said.
The 20-year-old sports star is the youngest person to have won the Vans World Cup of Surfing, and has a cameo role in Owen Wilson film The Big Bounce. "Swift seems extremely keen on JJ. He's quite different to anyone she's dated in the past, and while he's in the spotlight, it's his prowess as a surfer that she admires," the source said.
