Taylor Swift has not been alone too long after the recent breakup with Calvin Harris. Media is teeming with reports about ‘a secret romance’ between Taylor and Tom Hiddleston, 35, who recently received great acclaim for his performance in The Night Manager.
The reaction of ex-boyfriend Harris wasn’t long in coming – he unfollowed Taylor on social media.

The rumors about the relationship between Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston appeared after the publication of them kissing on a beach. The Sun unveiled pictures showing the couple walking hand-in-hand on a beach, said to be in Rhode Island, Swift’s home. An observer told the newspaper: “They were all over each other – hugging and kissing – even though there were 20 people coming and going on the beach. They looked like any young couple madly in love without a care in the world.”

Public showed its mixed reaction to the beginning of new Taylor’s love story.
“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. But it feels pretty disrespectful to be moving on to someone so public so quickly.”
Tom had earlier said in the interview that it was Taylor who approached him at the Met Gala “She said: ‘If they play I Can’t Feel My Face we have to get up and dance as an encore.’ I said: ‘I’m in, of course, let’s go. Absolutely.’ We just jumped up and started dancing – and everybody else started dancing – which was great. And it was cool. Taylor is a huge star. Maybe it’s just the randomness of it.”
Previous Taylor’s love story with Calvin Harris ended up perhaps too quietly to arouse any hot debates. Swift and Harris split up last month after 15 months together. There were no signs of trouble in the relationship in recent months. “There was no drama. Things just don’t work out sometimes,” said an insider.
Taylor had told about Harris: “I’m just taking things as they come. I’m in a magical relationship right now. And of course I want it to be ours, and low key…This is the one thing that’s been mine about my personal life.”
Prior to Harris, Taylor Swift, who is now ranked as one of the world’s biggest pop stars with hits including Bad Blood and Blank Space, had relationship with One Direction star Harry Styles.
