Taylor Swift stepped out in NYC on Tuesday looking happy and healthy amid reports that her romance with Tom Hiddleston is over.
The 26-year-old, wearing Under Armour leggings and a black tank top, flashed a hint of a smile as the paparazzi snapped away.
A source confirmed the breakup to “Extra,” saying it was an “amicable split.” Meanwhile, an insider shared further details with Us Weekly, saying, “She was the one to put the brakes on the relationship,” adding, “Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with” and now he is “embarrassed that the relationship fizzled out.”
Another source told DailyMail.com that Tom had asked Taylor to be his Emmys date later this month. She was reportedly concerned about taking the relationship so public. The singer has never walked the red carpet with a boyfriend.
Just hours after the breakup news, Taylor’s ex, Calvin Harris, spoke to British GQ about his relationship with Taylor, insisting they tried to avoid the “media circus.”
He said, “It’s difficult when something I consider so personal plays out publicly. The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than the relationship itself. When we were together, we were very careful for it not to be a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense. I'm not good at being a celebrity.”
Harris also referenced his tweets about the breakup, saying, "But when it ended, all hell broke loose. Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure. It took me a minute to realise that none of that matters. I'm a positive guy."
The producer continued, "For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn't right, so it ended, but all of the stuff that happened afterwards..."
He seemed to vaguely reference his relationship with Swift while accepting the Solo Artist Award at the Men of the Year Awards in London Tuesday night, saying, “I'd like to dedicate this to my manager Mark Gillespie for being a fantastic man. We've been through a lot and discovered a lot this year.”
Taylor and Calvin split in June after more than a year together. Two weeks later, she was spotted kissing Tom. Their whirlwind romance lasted for three months.
Calvin could have a new woman in his life. He was spotted arm-in-arm with actress Eiza González on Saturday.
