About a month ago, photos of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston making out on a rock like a pair of hormone-crazed teenagers leaked. Some were quick to call PR bull on the situation, as Taylor had just broken up with long-term beau Calvin Harris two weeks before. But Taylor and Tom have stayed together despite all of the odds, keeping their relationship very public. Now, sources are claiming things are serious—so serious, a ring is in the near future.
But first, there’s drama.
TMZ reported early this morning that Taylor and Calvin’s relationship came to an end after he “disrespected” her on the day his collaborative hit with Rihanna, “This Is What You Came For,” was released. Swift had apparently written the song, recorded a demo and sent it to Harris, who loved it. The two then recorded a demo together, but since they’re both super famous, they “agreed it was a bad idea to let the world know they collaborated as a couple.” So Swift used a pseudonym on the credits, the song eventually became a hit and RiRi went on to wear a glittery trash bag in the accompanying video.
But on April 29, the day the song was released, things came to a head. Calvin interviewed with Ryan Seacrest, who asked Calvin if he would collaborate with Taylor. His response? “You know, we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happen.”
Taylor’s feelings were hurt, her relationship with Calvin hit a “breaking point” and then came the retweet heard round the Internet. One high-profile makeout session and an “I <3 T.S.” t-shirt later, Taylor and Tom were official AF. Theirs is a love so real, a “Swift source” told Us Weekly that Tom is going to propose to Taylor. And get this: Taylor already has an answer to the question. “She would definitely say yes,” the source said. They’re basically already engaged!
All of this is, of course, one huge rumor that Kris Jenner is shaking her head at right now. But the real kicker is that Taylor owns the publishing rights to “What You Came For.” This means she has the power to ban Calvin from performing the song, something which Calvin did to Rita Ora when they broke up.
What happens next is a mystery, but in the words of professional matchmaker Ellie Goulding, “anything could happen.”
