The lyrics to some of the songs on Taylor Swift's last album suggested that her relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal didn't end too well, but apparently we had no idea.

A source tells Radar Online that the entire album was inspired by the fallout from their split, with the song "The Moment I Knew" chronicling Swift's disastrous 21st birthday party, at which Gyllenhaal was reportedly a no-show.

"Taylor thought maybe he was planning some sort of surprise. Nope. He didn't show up and she locked herself in the bathroom and cried the entire night," the source says. "Her breakup with Jake inspired every word of [the album] 'Red.'" So why did this brief romance reportedly hurt more than the others that Swift used as fodder for hit songs?


According to the source, Swift had been "saving herself for marriage" but decided to scuttle that plan after three months of dating Gyllenhaal. "She thought she was going to marry Jake, that's how in love she was with him."
