Taylor Swift asked to perform before her ex-boyfriend John Mayer at Academy of Country Music Awards in April and was “bitter” about his presence throughout.

The 23-year-old singer was apparently annoyed to hear her ex-boyfriend was due to perform before her at the ceremony on April 7 2013.

As a result she requested her set be bumped up on the schedule and was granted her wish.

"She said she had to go on earlier than him," a source told Us Weekly.

The insider added she put on “a stink” when hearing about John’s performance at the event.

Although she was nominated for five trophies, she walked away empty-handed and "was just really bitter that night" because of John’s presence.

"John just being there irked her," another insider commented.

Taylor had a short relationship with the musician in 2010. She wrote the song Dear John about him following a tough break up.

Taylor was lined up to performed with Keith Urban and Tim McGraw at the Las Vegas, Nevada event but exited early.

“After she didn’t win anything, she bailed on a post-show dinner party,” a witness added.

Since her brief period with John, Taylor has been romantically involved with a number of men.

She most recently broke up with One Direction star Harry Styles and dated Conor Kennedy of the fabled American political family last summer.
