Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston had a whirlwind romance — and no one can keep that sort of steam going. The couple met each other’s parents, flew around the world together, said ‘I love you’ and talked about having kids all within a month or two.
Unfortunately, Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift are officially over. We knew there was trouble in paradise when Swifty unfollowed her Thor sweetheart on Instagram, but we didn’t want it to be true.
According to Us Weekly, there wasn’t some major tiff that caused them to end things. It was Taylor who was uncomfortable with how public their relationship was (who would have thought that?). According to the source, Swifty “was the one to put the brakes on the relationship” because “Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with. Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection, but Tom didn’t listen to her concerns when she brought them up.” We don’t blame her. As cute as Hiddleston is, their uber-fast romance was ripped in the press, and always felt sort of weird and unsettling from an outsider’s perspective.
Hiddleswift’s relationship was one giant red flag, and we all saw trouble coming the second Swift dumped Calvin Harris out of nowhere and was spotted making out with the hunky British actor on the beach. Still, we really were rooting for them, if only for the fact that Tom wore an embarrassing “I <3 TS” shirt on the beach, and you can’t really come back from that.
