After Taylor got cozy with Australian actor Brenton Thwaites at the Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday night, Brenton’s longtime love, model Jessica Campion, took to her Tumblr to air her own angst about having Taylor snatch up a man with whom she said she had “unfinished business.”
Jessica and Brenton had a long-term relationship in their home country of Australia while Brenton was starring on the Aussie soap, Home and Away, but drifted apart when he left to film Blue Lagoon in 2012.
Long distance relationships “never work!” Jessica complained on her Tumblr, but admitted on her blog that she still hoped for a future with her first love.
“You and I will always have unfinished business,” she wrote in a post about Brenton in June 2012, signing off, “Until we meet again Thwaites.”
And in August, she wrote a post seemingly aimed at her departed love.
“Look. I know you’re searching for things,” she wrote. “I hope with all my heart that you find the answers to your questions. But the answers that you’re looking for are closer to you think … right here. At home. In your life you’re going to go to some great places, and you’re going to do some wonderful things. But no matter where you go, or who you become, this place will always be with you.”
But on Wednesday, Jessica found out that Brenton has moved on with Taylor when fans wrote in to her Tumblr page.
“How do you feel about Brenton dating Taylor Swift?” one asked.
Jessica answered, “Didn’t know.”
“Oh sh*t,” one user wrote. “Yeah, everyone’s freaking out about it. I guess Brenton and Taylor had dinner last night after an event. But f**k that, I like him better with you.”
Jessica responded, “I don’t really know what to say” before posting a note from a fan that read, “wouldn’t b surprised if [he] gets a song after hanging out with her [before] 2 long”
“Hopefully Taylor Swift fans don’t start bothering you,” Jessica posted from a fan, before answering, “I’ll be fine.”
However, after that note she posted “Worst. day. ever.” and reposted a note from a fan who wrote, “don’t worry about it. her music is sh*t anyway … and you’re prettier.”
Ironically, Jessica admitted, “I actually own most of her music.”
Taylor and Brenton’s chemistry shocked guests at the Grey Goose Soho House in Toronto Tuesday night.
“I find myself hypnotized at the sight of these two fresh-faced young stars … hitting it off as there’s no one in the room,” a reporter for Nuvo magazine wrote of the event.
“Swift doesn’t so much as flirt; it’s more like she sets the other person on fire. When she makes eye contact, it’s like locking eyes with a real arctic fox. Sheer magnetism. With sly, coquettish language, she draws Thwaites closer by speaking in hushed tones.”
