NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! For those of us who were rooting for Swiddles to be a thing that would last forever and ever (and ever and ever), our wildest dreams were just dashed. It’s been confirmed that Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have broken up, which basically means love can’t possibly be a real thing. A source told People magazine “it was an amicable split.” Pfft. Like that makes this any easier.
Really, though, it should come as no surprise, what with the stories that have been circulating over the past couple days, with each star covering their bases and their publicists working hard for their money. Radar Online reported that Tom was “sick of being treated like a glorified escort” and couldn’t “deal with being a laughingstock,” while the Daily Mail claims Taylor was “uncomfortable” with Hiddleston’s desire to be “so public” about their romance and feared he was “in love with the idea of her and not falling in love with her for the right reasons.”
The breakup likely already happened by the time the aforementioned stories came out. It’s just a preview of the actual breakup announcement and what was, and is still, to come.
While we wanted more (the Emmys were less than two weeks away people!!!! and we would’ve killed to see Swiddles sashay down the red carpet), it was still three months of pure, unadulterated, gossipy bliss from the beach walks, the I Heart T.S. tee, the 4th of July party and their meet-the-parents dates.
Damn. Somewhere, Calvin Harris is laughing his ass off.
