If there wasn't "Bad Blood" before, there might be now.

Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn found himself back in the headlines after his former girlfriend announced the April 19 release date of her new album The Tortured Poets Department, which fans are convinced is a nod to the Conversations With Friends actor's group chat name — "The Tortured Man Club."

"Joe has not said one word about Taylor or their breakup and has been completely respectful of her," the insider explained. "It's undeniable that the name of her upcoming album is in reference to Joe's WhatsApp group chat."

"Taylor knocked him for the name of this when they were together. She didn't want people to think that it had anything to do with her, so when he spoke out about it, she was, of course, bothered," the confidante confessed regarding Alwyn's 2022 interview with Variety, in which he and Paul Mescal talked about the group message chain they share with Andrew Scott.

The source continued: "Joe has no reason to believe yet that she is going to diss him or their relationship. She writes about her past using code and points of reference. It may just be that she is reflecting on their time together and he is hoping it is nothing more."

"If it is a diss album, that is shady," the insider insisted. "He helped her with song writing on her past album so it will really come as a shock to him if she talks about their breakup, as it is something he has not spoken of at all. Regardless of what she does, he will still not respond because he has removed himself from her narrative and is very glad, he did."
