Taylor Swift Kisses Tom Hiddleston After Calvin Harris Split, Romance Rumors Ensue
This may be why Calvin Harris has been acting so salty these days.
Just two week after Taylor Swift had split with her boyfriend of 15 months, photos of the songstress kissing Tom Hiddleston have surfaced. The pictures, which were taken on Tuesday (June 14, 2016), show the two on a romantic walk by the beach near Swift’s estate in Watch Hill, Rhode Island.
In one shot, Swift, 26, is seen resting her head on the 35-year-old actor’s shoulder as they sit on a rock overlooking the water. In another, Swift is seen snapping a selfie with her rumored beau after holding hands with the actor.
“They were all over each other – hugging and kissing – even though there were 20 people coming and going on the beach,” an onlooker told U.K. paper The Sun. “They looked like any young couple madly in love without a care in the world.”
Swift and Hiddletson first made headlines earlier this year when they were filmed dancing together at the 2016 Met Gala. “Who doesn’t? It’s a weird one [that it went viral]. I haven’t actually danced for a long time, but I happened to be dancing at the Met Gala because it was a party,” Hiddleston explained of their encounter in May. “I was on a table with Taylor Swift and The Weeknd was playing and she said, ‘The thing about these parties is nobody gets up to dance … She, as a musician, was like, ‘We’ve got to dance for The Weeknd!’ so we got up and danced.”
At the time, Swift was still dating Harris, 32. The two broke up at the end of May.
“Tom has been courting Taylor since they met – he sent her flowers. She’s been won over,” a source close to Swift also told the publication. “The timing of this looks very bad for Taylor. There was an obvious connection with Tom at the Met Gala — you can see that in the video of them dancing together.”
“Her people are insistent that no one else was involved in the split with Calvin, which is most likely the case,” the insider added. “But it feels pretty disrespectful to be moving on to someone so public so quickly.”
Hot on the heels of news that Swift and Hiddleston may be dating, Harris unfollowed Swift on Twitter and removed all traces of her from his social media accounts, including all photos of the “Bad Blood” singer from his Instagram. The Scottish DJ also deleted his tweet explaining that the split was amicable, which read, “The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect.”
Clearly, things didn’t really end up that way.
