Taylor Swift has reportedly shaken off another boyfriend—and HiddleSwift is no more. Just as the internet was beginning to accept their relationship as legit, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston called it quits on Tuesday.
According to sources close to Us Weekly, Swift was the one to end the romance because Hiddleston wanted more than she was willing to give at the time.
“Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with,” the source told Us Weekly. “Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection but Tom didn’t listen to her concerns when she brought them up.”
Not long ago, Hiddleston and Swift’s relationship seemed like it had potential to inspire a new Nicholas Sparks romance novel. Tabloids made them a daily facet of life online, and it seemed like the real thing.
Swift and Hiddleston first met at the MET Gala in June, flirting their way around the dance floor during an adorable dance-off. Rumors began to fly that they were an item once the news broke that Swift ended her relationship with the Scottish DJ Calvin Harris shortly after.
Two weeks later in June, the two were spotted on a beach in Rhode Island kissing in public, and it was one public date after the next as paparazzi swirled around their romance.
It’s almost as if we all knew the end was near, after a conspiracy theory emerged in July accusing the relationship of being an elaborate hoax for media attention sparked rumors of an imminent trip to splitsville. Hiddleston refuted the claim, telling the Hollywood Reporter: “[T]he truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together and we’re very happy.”
Even if it wasn’t all a lie, fans are taking Hiddleston’s side, mocking Swift for her many failed relationship habits.
