After just three months of dating and a whole lot of drama, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have reportedly broken up.
According to the People, “it was an amicable split,” a source close to couple said. The announcement comes just a day after an insider reportedly told the Daily Mail that the 26-year-old pop star felt “uncomfortable” with the 35-year-old actor’s eagerness to be “so public” about their relationship.
“Tom wants their relationship to be public, even asking Taylor to go to the Emmys with him, but Taylor wants to keep her private life private,” the source told Daily Mail Monday. “Tom’s need for their relationship to be so public so quickly makes her uncomfortable. She tried to be OK with it in the beginning but fears he is in love with the idea of her and not falling in love with her for the right reasons.”
Several hours later, news of their breakup started circulating online.
The two were initially inseparable when they first started dating, but have not been photographed together since late July. After photos of them hanging out on a Rhode Island beach surfaced in mid-June, things went quickly. Within weeks, the couple met each other’s parents, celebrated July 4th together at Swift’s annual party, traveled around the world, and left a trail of PDA-filled photos in their wake.
But from the beginning, fans doubted their romance. Swift had literally just broken up with her longterm boyfriend Calvin Harris, who was very outspoken about how hurt he was over the breakup. And for the most part, Swift remained quiet about their romance, unlike Hiddleston who outwardly told The Hollywood Reporter, “Look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy. That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.”
While there was reportedly no cheating involved, things definitely looked fishy. Swift and Hiddleston were first seen being flirty at New York’s Met Gala in May, after an Instagram video of them dancing together to T.I.’s “Bring ‘Em Out” went viral online. Shortly after, it was announced that Swift and Harris had broken up.
This sucks for everyone, but honestly, did anyone think this was going to last? It’s onto the next for Taylor Swift. Who will be her next fling? We’re sure we’ll find out within the next three weeks, at least.
