Never trust a screen grab on a fan account. On July 2, a Twitter account called “The Swift Society” shared what appeared to be a screen grab from the Society of European Stage Authors and Composers (SESAC) online repertory in which it appeared that Taylor Swift and Adele had cowritten and registered a song called “Broken Hearts,” with the alternate title of “Shattered Hearts.” Elle published an article about the rumored collaboration that also featured a SESAC screenshot of their own, seemingly confirming the existence of the song’s registration. 🚨| According to @sesac -@taylorswift13 and @Adele have co-written a song together!—The track is called "Broken Hearts/Shattered Hearts"— The Swift Society (@TheSwiftSociety) July 2, 2021

So it looks like the only “Broken Hearts” that’s actually real … is the shared sentiment of Swifties and Adele fans. News that “‘there is no truth’ to the reported collaboration.” A SESAC search of our own also turned up blank, and neither Swift or Adele have responded publicly to the rumor on social media.
