Here’s What ‘Sources’ Are Saying About Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris’ Breakup
In the aftermath of this whirlwind romance, numerous supposed insiders have decided to weigh in on what went wrong…
Tayvin is no more. As we somberly pick up the pieces (while playing “Shake It Off” on repeat), various “sources” have come forward with an explanation as to why Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris decided to call it quits.
According to a source with Us Weekly, it was the DJ’s decision to end the 15-month relationship.
“Taylor is doing OK now, but she was upset,” their source added, explaining that the split was drama-free; they simply didn’t have the magic anymore.
Not all outlets depicted the breakup so peacefully. A source with People claimed Harris felt threatened by Swift’s enormous success and it took a toll on their relationship.
“[Harris] said on multiple occasions that he was intimidated by Taylor, which is why he would not attend any events where she was being honored, or any award shows unless he was nominated,” the source said.
The insider followed that up with this loaded comment: “Taylor is an independent young woman, and she realizes it will take a very secure man to handle her success.”
Perhaps it wasn’t Swift’s success that upset the prominent producer; perhaps it was her high-profile lifestyle? A source told TMZ that Harris wanted nothing to do with the pop songstress’s Hollywood social life, preferring a low-key existence out of the limelight instead.
A source with E! News said Harris (whose real name is Adam Wiles) grew tired of the relationship long before pulling the plug.
“Adam has been bored for a while and was hoping the spark would come back but it hasn’t,” the source said. “Friends were even surprised it lasted this long because of the lack of chemistry.”
Another E! News source smashed any lingering thoughts on infidelity in the relationship.
“There were no other women involved with Adam. He did not cheat on her at all. Just not a good match.”
Amid all the rumors of exactly what went down between the former couple, Harris broke his silence about the split, tweeting, “The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect.”
Swift since retweeted the message from her own personal account.
