Calvin Reportedly Disrespected Taylor Swift After She Wrote His Hit Song “This is What You Came For”

The Calvin Harris, Taylor Swift breakup saga continues onward, despite a retaliation song, a new fling, and a near-thorough explanation of WTF happened on Instagram. According to TMZ, sources close to Taylor Swift say their relationship fell apart after Harris disrespected his now ex-girlfriend, despite the fact that she wrote his monster hit “This is What You Came For.” The rumor originally started out as a fan theory, but sources say Swift did in fact write the song.

From TMZ,

During their relationship, Taylor wrote the song, sat down at a piano and did a demo into her iPhone. She sent it to Calvin, who loved it. They both went into a studio and did a full demo with Taylor on vocals and Calvin doing the beat.

They both knew the song would be a hit, but Taylor wrote it for Calvin and both agreed it was a bad idea to let the world know they collaborated as a couple … it would overshadow the song.

So instead of taking credit, Swift, who kept the publishing rights, used the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg on the credits. That’s love right there.

On April 29th, Harris released the track with Rihanna and the song became an instant hit. But that same day is when things started to go south. While appearing on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, Ryan questioned if he’d ever do a collaboration with Swift, to which Harris responded, “You know we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening though.”


Apparently Swift was hurt by the comment and believed Harris took things too far. Several days later, Swift danced with her new boyfriend Tom Hiddleston at the Met Gala.

I personally don’t think the comment was that bad, but then again, I’ve never written a song for my boyfriend and selflessly allowed him to take full credit. What do you think? Sound off in the comments below.

UPDATE: Taylor Swift’s team has officially confirmed that she did write the song.
