Rumors have been flying about serial-dater Taylor Swift hooking up with Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel.

LaineyGossip was the first to get all gossipy about the 24-year-old pop singer dating Spiegel, 23:

I’m told that Taylor was at a party with Spiegel over the holidays and it was understood that they were checking each other. Nothing overt but my sources say there’s no doubt she was there with him and for him and that they’re seeing each other casually—so far.

However, Swift's publicist has denied the dating rumors, although admits Swift was at that said party.

We can just imagine Swift softly stroking Spiegel's hair, telling him everything will be alright after his Venice Beach-based Snapchat was hacked recently. (The phone numbers and usernames of folks using his messaging app were leaked online by hackers on New Year's Eve.) Then she'll scribble some notes on a piece of paper for ideas for future songs, with the words "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "Everything Has Changed."

The best part about these rumors are some of the tweets people wrote about the pair, making Snapchat jokes and giving advice on new song material for the singer:
