Not even a syrupy-sweet ballad about belonging together was enough to save Taylor Swift's parents' marriage. Star magazine reports that Scott and Andrea Swift separated about two years ago after 25 years of marriage, but they didn't want to damage Taylor's career by divorcing. Taylor recently was asked about the lyrics included in her upcoming album, and she said, "They're sad, if I'm being honest." It sounds like the Grammy winner is taking the split really hard, according to sources. "She's been going through a lot," a family friend informs Star. "The new album will showcase the pain of her parents' separation." Unfortunately, Taylor's touring schedule may have played a part in the split: "Andrea being on tour with Taylor full-time has really been hard on her relationship with Scott," the source said. After a messy breakup with John Mayer, it sounds like Taylor can empathize.
