Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn has last laugh as he rakes in five-figure dollars from

IT must have been hard for Brit actor Joe Alwyn to see Taylor Swift, his ex-lover of six years, move on with new man Matty Healy.

But Joe will have the last laugh, as he is set to continue profiting from the songs he co-wrote with her.

Under the pseudonym William Bowery, Joe helped to create the songs Betty and Exile on 2020 album Folklore before contributing to Champagne Problems, Coney Island and the title track from Evermore, also released in 2020.

Then last year he co-wrote Sweet Nothing on her latest No1 album Midnights.

A music insider said: “Joe will be raking in a fortune from these songs for years.

“Taylor’s albums sold millions and continue to be huge on streaming services.

He will easily be making a five-figure sum every year from his contributions.

“Writing six songs for albums as big as Taylor’s guarantees a healthy income stream for life.”

The three albums that talented Joe contributed to have spent ten weeks at No1 between them.

Brutal honesty
Midnights, which came out in October, is still in the Top Ten, 28 weeks after it was released.

Taylor and Joe’s split was revealed at the beginning of April, then last week The Sun revealed the bombshell news that she is now dating London-born The 1975 frontman Matty.

On Friday during a gig in Nashville she revealed her third studio album, 2010’s Speak Now, will be the next to be re-recorded from her back catalogue, with six new tracks from her vault.

Tweeting about the album, out on July 7, she said: “I first made Speak Now, com-pletely self-written, between the ages of 18 and 20.

“The songs that came from this time in my life were marked by their brutal honesty, unfiltered diaristic confessions and wild wistfulness.”
