Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston will no longer be making out on rocks by the ocean, according to Us Weekly, who reports that the couple has officially split. The news comes just three months after the pair was famously photographed in a romantic embrace in Rhode Island, where they kissed like
everyone no one was looking.
A “source” (and possible PR person) told Us that Taylor initiated the breakup. “[Taylor] was the one to put the brakes on the relationship,” the source said. “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.” They never listen. Do they?
Tom is apparently “embarrassed that the relationship fizzled out,” probably because he literally wore an “I Heart T.S.” shirt one time. The embarrassment might also stem from all of the drama that occurred after news broke of Tom and Taylor’s relationship, as well as the fact that Twitter is now throwing a #HiddleswiftIsOver party.

May the PR gods have mercy on Tom’s soul. May the spirit of Calvin Harris lead him to go on a Twitter rant, divulging precious information about the goings on of Taylor’s inner circle. And finally, may Taylor try to make sense of this hot mess of a relationship in her next album, which (preferably) will come out next year. In Beyoncé’s name we pray.
