This is a true Taylor anecdote, as actor Taylor Lautner’s wife, Taylor Doom, had us all with her reaction to spilling tea about him. That infamous moment from the Taylor Swift and Kanye West MTV VMAs.
in video from Their podcast “The Squeeze” Published Wed on TikTok, Dom Lautner asked, “If you could go back to one moment in your life, what would it be and what would you say to yourself?”
“Probably the 2009 VMAs, when I presented the award to Taylor and I wasn’t aware that the Kanye thing wasn’t a skit,” he said, causing Dome to literally gasp and say, “I’m remorseful.”
West, now going by “Ye,” appeared on stage and interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech to declare, “Imma lets you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos ever!”
Dom noted that Lautner and Swift, who dated briefly in 2009, had just gone public about their relationship at the time.
Lautner explained that he presented the award to Swift and “took five steps back and was five feet behind her” when West jumped on stage while she was speaking.
“I can barely hear him,” said Lautner. “I’m just assuming this whole thing was a rehearsed skit, so why would Kanye West jump on stage to interrupt Taylor Swift? It just didn’t make sense.”
Lautner said it wasn’t until Swift turned around and saw her face that he realized it wasn’t planned.
in 2016, Lautner confirmed that he was the inspiration for Swift’s 2010 song “Back to December.” He and Dom got married last year.
