Let’s be honest, no one expected to see pictures of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston kissing on a beach in Rhode Island (a month after meeting at the Met Gala), but it appears that the person who expected to see it the least was Swift’s ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris.
Harris and Swift shocked fans when they announced, two weeks ago, that they would be splitting after a year of dating, but things between the former couple appeared to be amicable, with Harris writing a beautiful statement about the split on Twitter — but that statement is now gone.
According to multiple reports, Harris has deleted all signs of his relationship with Swift from social media. Remember all those super cute vacation pics on Instagram? Gone. Plus, he’s reportedly unfollowed Swift on Twitter and Instagram, and has even blocked her fans’ accounts.
So what’s the reason for the way Harris has reacted to the pictures of Swift kissing another man? Well, apparently it’s because he feels blindsided by the whole thing.
“Now that these pictures have come out, he instantly went back to the Met Gala moment in his mind. He has lots of questions and is disappointed in Taylor. It goes against everything he thought she would do. It puts her in a bad light in his mind; he doesn’t like how this is all turning out,” a source told Hollywood Life.
According to the source, Harris really didn’t want this breakup to get ugly, which was why he initially made a statement about it on Twitter on June 2. At the time it read, “The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect.”
“Calvin wanted nothing more than to have no controversy with their breakup, and that is why he originally stated when they broke up that love was still there,” the source adds.
Now we’re not so sure if all the initial “huge amount of love and respect” that the statement mentioned still exists. But what do you think?
