Taylor Swift has found a would-be boyfriend in Glee star Cory Monteith – but the last person she’ll tell is her mother!

Pals of the 20-year-old pop-country star tell The ENQUIRER that Taylor has learned the hard way to keep mum with her mom Andrea, who is also managing her hot career.

"Taylor is actually pretending not to be interested in Cory so her mother doesn’t scare him off!" disclosed a friend.

"The way her mom Andrea cuts through her potential boyfriends, Taylor’s figured out she better not have any serious mother-daughter conversations about her love life or the relationship will be doomed from the get-go."

Taylor is now the music industry’s best-selling female artist and claimed the coveted top album award at the Grammys for Fearless.

The bubbly blonde took 27-year-old Monteith as her date to a pre-Grammy party and was also seen with him at the popular LA hangout Jerry’s Famous Deli.

"Taylor really likes Cory, and she’s telling friends she sees ‘real romantic possibilities’ with him, but she’s keeping her lips zipped around Andrea," a pal revealed.
