Boys Like Girls lead singer Martin Johnson was photographed at LAX on Monday night arriving with Ashley and the two held hands as they walked through the airport.
But two years ago Martin had his eye on Taylor — who was featured in his band's single Two Is Better Than One — and a source tells RadarOnline.com they fell pretty hard for each other until her "team" decided he wouldn't be good for her image.
"Taylor was really head over heels for Martin, but her team didn't really feel that he was a good influence on her or her image," an insider exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
"So she was pretty much forced to end things. She sort of broke his heart."
According to the source, Martin was going through a rough time at that point in his life and was battling some personal demons.
"He is a really great guy," the source said. "Since they split he has really turned his life around."
