Taylor Swift fans and trolls alike have assumed that she would accompany boyfriend Tom Hiddleston to the Emmy Awards on September 18th.
As the saying goes, “to assume is to make an ass out of u and me.”
Hiddleston is nominated for Lead Actor In A Limited Series or Movie for his role in The Night Manager, a critically-acclaimed miniseries co-starring Hugh Laurie.
Swift has never walked the red carpet with a boyfriend, and according to a source, doesn’t plan on starting anytime soon.
‘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 the Daily Mail.
“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.”
And here we thought she would be pumped to attend the Emmy Awards as a supportive girlfriend, but after flaunting their relationship over July 4th weekend, Swift might be singing a different tune.
Swift and Hiddleston’s relationship (fauxmance, whatever you’d like to call it) has been the source of tabloid fodder all summer, especially since it appeared to staged at first.
The two were reportedly set up by their PR teams after the MET Ball in May, and before you know it, they’re making out by the ocean and taking a romanitc trip to Italy.
It was weird. No one was buying it.
On the Fourth, things got even weirder when Hiddleston proudly wore an “I Heart T.S.” tank top while splashing around in the waves.
Hiddleston, however, wanted to set the record straight, and did so during an Emmy nominations interview on July 14th.
“Well, um. How best to put this?” Hiddleston said while on the phone with The Hollywood Reporter.
“That notion is — look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy. Thanks for asking. That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.”
Fast-forward a few months, and Hiddleston is feeling like a “glorified escort,” according to Radar Online.
“It’s become a total charade. Tom is just done with it,” a source told the site.
“It bothers him so much that they’ve become known as this fauxmance laughing stock.”
Will Swift join her glorified escort on the red carpet come September 18th?
