We think it’s safe to say that Taylor Swift is in the studio furiously penning sorrowful breakup ballads at the moment, as the famously unlucky-in-love songstress has ended yet another high-profile romance.
Yes, People magazine confirmed moments ago that Swift and actor Tom Hiddleston have called it quits after less than three months of dating.
At this time, no reason has been given for the split.
The world first learned of their whirlwind relationship when Swift and Hiddleston were “caught” kissing on a beach in Rhode Island back in June.
The news shocked fans, as it came just days after Swift’s team confirmed the singer had broken up with Calvin Harris.
The relationship between Swift and Hiddleston was so sudden, and the couple seemed to move so quickly that rumors that the whole was a publicity stunt spread like wildfire on social media.
It was tough to see what Swift would stand to gain from such a stunt, and indeed, it wasn’t long before Hiddleston broke his silence, confirming that he and Taylor were not only dating, but were quite serious about spending their future together.
“Look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy,” Hiddleston told The Hollywood Reporter in June.
“That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.”
Insiders added that the two first hit it off at the 2016 Met Gala in May, just weeks before Swift announced her split with Harris.
Thus far, sources on both sides of the breakup have been relatively quiet.
The insider who confirmed the separation to People added only:
“It was an amicable split.”
Of course, that’s what Team Taylor said after she ended things with Harris, and we know now that those two parted on less than ideal terms.
Reports of trouble in Swift and Hiddleston’s relationship began almost immediately after their relationship became official, but the couple batted them down at every turn, usually by speaking with actions instead of words.
When fans claimed the relationship was fake, Tom and Taylor posted nauseating canoodling pics on Instagram.
When tabloids insisted Hiddleswift was over, Swift traveled to the UK to meet Hiddleston’s mother.
It may be quite some time before we find out exactly what caused such a passionate (and self-consciously public) couple to call it quits.
But when you can bet that the news will be broken on Taylor’s terms, probably in song form.
The girl does three things very well: sing, write songs, and weather the publicity storm that follows a high-profile breakup.
