American singer Taylor Swift was rumoured to be dating Chinese tech tycoon Charles Zhang Chaoyang. However, the founder of internet company Sohu has denied the romance reports.

The 52-year-old was asked about the dating rumours during a session on Sohu's live-streaming platform Qianfan. He responded: "It's a rumour! No taste for foreign women! I don't even know who Taylor Swift is."

Swift, who latest split with Tom Hiddleston, has a history of dating high-profile celebrities including Scottish singer/DJ Calvin Harris, One Direction star Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer and Conor Kennedy.

In December 2015, during an interview with NME magazine, the Bad Blood hitmaker said she feels the world is too interested in her personal life. She told the publication: "I'm in the news every single day for multiple different reasons. And it can feel, at times, if you let your anxiety get the better of you, like everybody's waiting for you to really mess up – and then you'll be done."

"A lot of the time I need to call my mom and talk for a really long time, just to remind myself of all the things that are great and all the things that matter. If you do something that defines your character to be not what the public thought you were, that's the biggest risk," Swift added.

Swift also predicted she would be single at 30. She told the Telegraph: "Let's be honest. No one's going to sign up for this and everything that goes with it. Like, 'Hi, nice to meet you, want a date? Do you love camera flashes? I hope you do!' I don't know what's going to happen if I'm ever content in a relationship -- no idea how that's going to work. I don't even know if that's possible with the life I have."
