UPDATE: It was too good to be true. After three documented months of dating, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have officially called it quits, People confirms.
EARLIER // AUGUST 24:
Taylor Swift said she's "a national lightning rod for slut shaming," so it should come as no surprise her likely split from actor Tom Hiddleston is getting sensationalized. We can't confirm the once inseparable couple broke up, but Swift unfollowed Hiddleston on Instagram which, as we know by now, is the first step in ridding yourself of someone in 2016.
Last month, Hiddleston described their relationship as "fantastic" and denied rumors they were globe trotting as a publicity stunt.
“Well, um. How best to put this?”, he said as the flashbacks of strolling on the beach in Rhode Island and kissing selfies in Rome flashed through his consciousness. “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.”
A label exec claimed last month Swift has no plans to release a new album this year cause I imagine the 1989 singer is still piecing together how she can devise an album around this breakup, and her split from Calvin Harris, and the barrage of hate from Kanye West and Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry and Justin Bieber and... ah shit TS6 is going to slay.
Another one bites the dust.
UPDATE: Mysterious. She re-followed, but is there trouble in paradise? Us Weekly claims the lovebirds had “a major argument” in early August due to conflicting schedules. You care.
