How Taylor Swift is living a low-key life with boyfriend Joe Alwyn despite £282million fortune – The Sun

TAYLOR Swift used to be known for her girl gang of A-List pals, lavish star-studded parties, and attendance on every high-profile red carpet.

But in recent years, the 30-year-old star has retreated from the limelight – opting for a low-key life away from the cameras with British boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

Having previously dated some of the world's most eligible bachelor's – including Tom Hiddleston, Joe Jonas, and Calvin Harris – Taylor's current beau was still living in his parents' Crouch End home when he met Taylor in February 2017.

Their worlds could not have been more different, with the US star worth a staggering £282million and the proud owner of several luxurious mansions, as well as two private jets.

They first met at a pre-Oscars party through their mutual friend Emma Stone, who Joe met while filming The Favourite.

And Joe wasted no time in introducing Taylor to a more 'normal' lifestyle, with the pair enjoying intimate dates at Pizza Express, local parks, and even Joe's parents' home.

However, Taylor still isn't exempt from the odd luxe night out, with she and Joe recently being joined by Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry for a night at Soho's Bob Bob Ricard – home to the iconic 'press for champagne' button.

The foursome enjoyed a night there for Joe's 29th birthday, and were desperate to keep a low profile under giant umbrellas as they left the building.

But more often than not, Taylor can forgo the massive brollies, managing to pass through the streets of London unrecognised as she and her boyfriend of three years hop into a Peugeot to explore England – including a drive down to Brighton's seafront.

In fact, one of the pair's first dates was to Pizza Express in Hampstead, followed by Spaniards Inn.

While she enjoys indulging in a regular lifestyle, Taylor still has to remember that she is an A-list star worth millions and err on the side of caution.

It has been reported that she sometimes wears a brunette bobbed wig as a disguise while out with Joe, and she always has plain-clothes security guards sitting on the next table as a precaution.

The singer currently rents a stunning home on the border of Hampstead and Highgate, but prior to setting down roots she borrowed the homes of several of her UK pals – including model Cara Delevingne, and Dominic West.

Taylor is said to have stayed at Cara's Chiswick house when she was in the area to meet Joe's family and friends – even wandering around the local park to walk Cara's pet dogs.

Meanwhile, she and Joe rented Dominic's Glin Castle in Limerick for Christmas in 2018, with the pair also enjoying walks through the surrounding countryside.

In fact, Taylor has become quite the homebody and enjoys cooking for Joe and other loved ones, even attempting traditional Sunday roast dinners for his parents at a rented North London home.

A source previously shared: "It has been intoxicating for her to have anonymity again as she has been famous since she was 16."

And while she does attend some showbiz events, she prefers to enter through a side door – sneaking in unnoticed to support Joe at the premiere of his film Mary Queen Of Scots, and shunning the Baftas red carpet – which she chose to go to instead of the Grammys.

Taylor hasn't graced the red carpet of any of the top-tier showbiz events, but did make an appearance as guest of honour at the NME Awards last month.

Attending with Joe, the ceremony took place in Brixton – and saw rapper Slowthai launch himself at a heckler in the crowd after making a series of lewd remarks about host Katherine Ryan.

The Grammy-winning artist is so besotted with her new London lifestyle that she even penned a song about it on her last album Lover, titled London Boy.

On the up-tempo track, Taylor sings about how much she enjoys everyday things such as walking around Camden Market, watching rugby in the pub with Joe's friends, and hearing stories about their time in university.

She also boasted about nights out in Brixton, outings to Hackney and Shoreditch, and afternoon tea.

Taylor currently has three homes in New York, two properties in Nashville, and mansions in Beverly Hills and on Rhode Island.

Although she is basing a lot of her time in the UK of late, Taylor has also been travelling to Nashville frequently to spend as much time as possible with her mum Andrea, who is battling cancer.

The star is able to travel incognito on her private jet, which has a "no track" notice to ensure optimum privacy as nobody can see where the plane has been.

While the star is currently renting her UK property, she is said to have given herself a budget of £30million to buy a home in London – securing a future that consists of the low-key lifestyle that she has come to love.
