Apparently, Taylor and Emily met through mutual friends sometime last year. When asked about her sexuality Taylor told the Evening Standard "I really don't fit into a box, that's too reductive... I've had wonderful relationships. I've had a lot of love, and I don't have any qualms about where it comes from." She also explained "I've had very serious relationships with lots of people, and I'm a very expansive human. There's no part of me that can be put under a label."
