Taylor Swift & Harry broke up because ‘he said something he shouldn’t have’

You know what? I’m not going to play the “Poor, poor Swifty” Card this time. I didn’t play it for her with Conor Kennedy either. You know why? Because I’m pretty sure that with both Harry Styles and Conor Kennedy, it was Taylor Swift who did the dumping. Pre-Conor, here’s how Swifty’s relationships always went: Swifty meets Boy, Swifty falls head over heels for Boy in less than a week, Swifty smothers Boy with affection and cuddlefesting, Boy gets freaked out and dumps Swifty over the phone, Swifty writes songs about it. Believe it or not, I think Swifty is trying to learn from previous mistakes…? Is that giving her too much credit? All I’m saying is that I don’t think she’s the dumped one in her past two relationships. Which is progress, sort of.

So Us Weekly already has analysis of why Harry and Swifty didn’t work out. Keep in mind that Us Weekly gets a lot of information out of Swifty’s camp, and it seems like Us Weekly – more so than People – is Swifty’s tabloid of choice.

Taylor Swift, yet again, has some fresh material for a new breakup song: As rumored, Swift, 22, and One Direction’s Harry Styles have split, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

Things went south last week for the couple during a vacation on Virgin Gorda, the third-largest of the British Virgin Islands — with Swift cutting the holiday short and jetting back home to Nashville.

“They had a fight,” one insider tells Us. British crooner Styles, 18, “said something he shouldn’t have . . . This [breakup] is definitely going to be for good.”

“They are 100 percent over,” another insider adds, noting that the “Red” chanteuse could be “intense.”

Swift was first seen flirting with Styles back in mid-November — and was photographed holding hands with the boy bander a couple weeks later. Before ringing in the New Year with a sweet kiss, they went on a ski trip with another volatile young couple: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez .

The Grammy winner’s previous high-profile flames include political scion Conor Kennedy, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas.

A source also told The Mail: “Yes I can confirm they have split up. They were on holiday and had an almighty row. They are two young stars at the top of their game so who knows what will happen in the future.” Swifty changed her plans quickly, flying back home after three days and Harry stayed behind, and it seems like he was probably hanging out with random chicas after Swifty left. So… it’s over. How do you feel about it? I’m kind of meh. The Swifty-Kennedy thing bothered me so much more than this 1D nonsense. I think this was probably good for her – a high-profile fling with a English boy. It’s just fun and games, Swifty.

    was it “bearding no longer becomes you” or “I only got with you to make Gyllenhal jealous?” or something as simple as
    “you already have one song about me, why must you write another?” oh wait, I know “your songs lately have sucked..hard”

    • brin says:

      Yeah….he told her the truth.

    • spugzbunny says:

      Was it ‘darliiiiiiiing have I told you how much I love the dong?’

    • Amelia says:

      He probably called her the dreaded C*** word during their argument and her primness lost her s*** and called it quits. The English still use that pretty regularly, despite it being horribly derogatory towards women.

      • tabasco says:

        don’t want to generalize too much here, but in my experience as an american girl dating a brit and working with brits, there is definitely a cultural difference and adjustment to be made. the brit sense of humor and word choice can seem really caustic to american female ears. and brits have a different definition of “alcoholic” as well. but as we know, swifty doesn’t need a brit to have a five-second relationship! homegirl is looking a little predatory these days. let’s be real, if it was a 22-yr-old dude working his way through barely legal girls, he’d be getting called out.

      • Kathryn says:

        Don’t worry she’ll have a new love of her life next week. hahaha

      • Tiffany says:

        “if it was a 22-yr-old dude working his way through barely legal girls, he’d be getting called out.”

        So true.

      • Claire says:

        Whoa, think you’re a bit off with that assessment of us Brits. c*** is used quite rarely, and when it is it’s never a guy calling a girl one. Definitely not “normal” and I can’t see Harry doing that. I do think there is a massive humour difference between Americans and Brits though, that although she might have found charming at first, constantly being exposed to “lad banter” would probably start to wear on her…

      • MW says:

        Yeah Claire, I agree. My mom’s a Brit, and I am not sure she even knows the “C” word, but I have never heard her say it. And she has a full vocab of Brit and American swear words. The time I got the most horrified look was from my Aunt when I said my sister was a bum, (meaning the American definition, but when we were in England). My mom had to clarify it wasn’t bad over here. My mom said the weirdest look she ever got was when she called somebody an ass, at work, in the US. I guess that’s not a big deal over there. And no one here has a clue how really bad s*d is!

      • Ally8 says:

        Also, “tw#t” is just used like “dolt” with not much sexual connotation in the U.K. Whereas in the U.S. it’s the equivalent of the C-word.

        Or he made reference to her string of recent boyfriends and tossed out a “sl%t”.

        I saw no chemistry between these two, anyway. I think they were using each other to get publicity in their respective US and UK markets.

    • I hate klum says:

      Did he tell her she looked like an image of a girl you only see in a funhouse mirror?

  2. Kathryn says:

    OMG! Her legs — eat something girl!!

  3. paranormalgirl says:

    He said something he shouldn’t have? Like what? “Sorry Taylor, unicorns aren’t real and I will not hold your Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper with the hearts scribbled all over it?”

    I used to like this girl. Now she makes me stabby.

  4. only1shmoo says:

    I think my respect for this girl/woman really plummeted after she perused & then dumped Connor. She seemed to be stalking a boy who was in a vulnerable state, all because she had some juvenile obsession with the Kennedy clan (plus, she can’t seem to be without a man for 5 minutes). She then dumped him like yesterday’s news and then flaunted her new fling for EVERYONE to see. Plus, I’m so sick and tired of her juvenile, passive-aggressive antics in her songs…I’m starting to think she just might be a mean girl!

    • gg says:

      Another J-Lo insufferable diva in the making.

      I think her main problem with boys is that she hasn’t had the time/inclination to just be friends with somebody for a long time, and then start the love relationship. And due to her schedule and hectic life now, it doesn’t seem possible, unless she is touring with the person. But then even if that were to work out, you can’t tour with the same person forever. Successful touring careers like this wreck relationships. I see her turning into a bitter, ball-chopping beetch. She needs to sort out what she actually needs. With a shrink.

    • Gemini08 says:

      My respect for her plummeted long before that. She uses these guys to stay relevant and in the press and sell records. She also seems incredibly insecure and unable to actually be alone for any length of time. It was less than a month after she dumped Conor that she started dating this kid. It’s pathetic. And it sends a bad message to the people who buy her music: which are most 14 year old girls. I wish someone would finally call her out on that. That she is not in fact being a good role model.

  5. erika says:

    y’ all are TOO hard on Swiff-er!

    This is just terrible, Harry said something that was NOT already written in the script that Swiffer gave him when they first started dating.

    See, Swiffer believes in LUV sooooo much that she writes a daily script of what he/she will say, it’s all according to how she wants to take the relationship.

    For example, here’s the Act by Act script for how she wanted her relationship with Harry to go…”gonna buy a house next door to your mommy n’ daddy, get married, have bey-bey’s and I’ll wear 1950s like dresses even when I house clean and have a martini and a blow job ready for you when you get home from work!”

    HARRY didn’t stick to the SCRIPT! He decided to ‘improvise’. He’s so gay…

  6. Ranunculus says:

    Or was it because she could not get as much publicity out of it as she hoped. Anyway I think the girl is retarded and she should get with Tom Cruise next.

    • Kimbob says:

      LOL….good one! Yes, her next prey should be Mr. Lift Monster. Because Scientology is as real as sparkle ponies, unicorns, & all that crap. After all, if she believes in the sparkles and ponies & what-not, it’s certainly not a stretch that she could believe she could attain “Operating Thetan” status, or whatever they call it where she can transport herself through time & space. I actually think for once and all that Tom C. would actually be her perfect match.

      AND a new back-stabbing song throwing Harry under the bus in 3…2…1.

    • bluhare says:

      Substitute “stupid” for “retarded” (not a good choice these days) and I totally agree. They could fake romance until the cows come home.

      Taylor Swift is as fake as they get. Can’t stand her. But I did really enjoy the photo of her sitting alone on a boat after the breakup was announced. She’s so brave, everybody!

  7. Julie says:

    What did he say? “I’ll never never never ever never ever put ring on it” or “I’ll never never never ever never give you my magic sperm”.

  8. gg says:

    I may be alone here, but I really hate handbags like that. They look so uncomfortable and make people look like 1950s dippy housewives. You can’t do anything with that hand you have to hold onto it with, and if you slip it in the crook of your arm, still can’t use the hand and it just hangs there stupidly. I have to have both my hands free to grab merchandise.

  9. mln76 says:

    I think y’all are being too nice the girl is crazy. I know she hasn’t been married yet but she makes J-lo look conservative in relationships. Even if half of them are bearding situations she behaves like a stalker buying homes next to her boyfriends after a week ‘just because’ then writing tralala horrid music in which she is always the victim making no attempt to protect their privacy then doing it all again compulsively. Get her to a psych ward before she starts burying these guys in her backyard.

  10. Talie says:

    If I believed she was a player, I may like her more…but I just can’t. I even have trouble believing she sleeps with these guys because she comes off so asexual.

    • QQ says:

      THIS Talie I would be in the front of the line If GirlWoman was in fact being an Ice Cold Playa the fact she is gonna act forlorn do Duckies photoshoots and write one of her stupid ass Boo HOO The-first-boy-i-Trusted-you-but-you-broke-my-pony songs and thirst after another guy, a not particularly nice nor wholesome type with some douche scent ( again Is cool if you like douche scented men, just own it and the consequences like a big woman) in 5 mins rinse and repeat is what makes me CRAZY

      And yes she comes off completely antiseptic and asexual

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      Thank you! YES! She doesn’t seem like she is interested in sex at ALL! I still cannot believe she dated John Mayer….ICK.
      It’s like I picture her saying “Sex? Eeeewwwww, that’s so messy and dirtyyyy”.

  11. kibbles says:

    I’ll give the girl a slight break – she’s only 22. I don’t expect her to get married any time soon and neither do I think she should. I didn’t get involved in serious relationships until my late 20s. However, I also wasn’t jumping from one boyfriend to the next in my early 20s either. To each his/her own. It is okay to learn from your mistakes and play the field when you are that young. That being said, it would be nice to see Taylor take a break from dating. I’ve known girls like her who don’t know how to be alone, who always has to have a boyfriend to feel good about themselves, and I think learning to be alone is also a very important part of learning who you are and growing into a mature, independent woman. What makes this worse is that she plays the victim in her songs and her public person is still of an innocent virginal girl whose fan base is in their tweens. I would like to see her mature a bit more and write songs about topics other than love and heartbreak. It’s not like she’s ever been in a mature relationship where she would even understand what a committed relationship is all about.

    • P.J. says:

      I agree, it seems like she can’t just date someone and get to know him gradually. Instead it’s total love and togetherness–an instant relationship that’s doomed to fail because it’s not based on real affection that develops over time.

      How could she be so heartbroken after a relationship that only lasted a couple of weeks? What a drama queen!

  12. kct says:

    When you date guys who are younger than you and/or are too immature, they are always going to say something they shouldn’t. It would be nice to see her date someone her age or a little older, possibly someone outside of the music biz, and just keep it on the down low so the media doesn’t kill it before its time.

    • Xantha says:

      Before the media kills it? She invites the speculation into her love life. I don’t know if you know this but in every album liner note she capitalizes certain letters to spell out who the song is about. And it won’t surprise me in the slightest if she’s the celeb who calls the paps on herself.

      This “relationship” was just a PR fling designed to get them both a lot of press and her more song material for her next album. At this point it really only seems like she’s dating guys just for the song she can get out of it.

  13. Hoya_chick says:

    That title is such a tease! The only reason I clicked on this story was to find out what he said. Boooo

  14. Zorbitor says:

    He said How About a Four-Way? (With Bieber & Gomez). Swiftly was actually down with it but didn’t think a song about group sex would sell.

  15. Darlene says:

    WHAT?? Their fake relationship is OVER? WHAT? How can ANY LOVE LAST when Swifty’s fake relationship can’t make it!!!

  16. Jess says:

    My money is on Harry wanting an open relationship while they were both on tour. He’s an 18 year old dude in a boy band. Taylor was a hot little famous piece for a few months and all, but come on, the boy wasn’t going to stay faithful to her. And no, I don’t think he’s gay, he’s just British. People sometimes get the two confused for some reason, lol.

    • Belle says:

      I agree…. and will be really pissed if she writes a mean song about him. For some reason, I doubt whatever he ‘said’ was worth trashing him in a song. I have daughters, so we’ve purchased plenty of Swifty music over the last few years, but my girls both LOVE 1D, and if Swifty goes psycho on Harry, it won’t be pretty at my house! ;)

  17. valleymiss says:

    Wonder who Swifty will beard for next?

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: At this point, Kim Kardashian is less annoying as a celebrity than Taylor Swift.

  18. Lady Satan says:

    Things he might have said:

    “So, how many guys *have* you dated?”

    “You do get tested for STDs regularly, right?”

    “I really don’t want to get matching teddy bear & rainbow tattoos.”

    “I think we should slow things down a little.”

    “You’re f***ing nuts!”

  19. epiphany says:

    I can’t believe anyone thinks they were actually dating – this was a publicity stunt! How many people who had never heard of the band, ‘One Direction’ now know everything about them because of this “romance?” That was the whole point. I assumed they would drag it out until February – oh, poor Swifty, alone on Valentine’s Day – but there must be something else in the mix that they had to call it off early. A new bearding assignment awaits!

    • Helene says:

      I agree. Alternativly I think she’s a lesbian. She dosen’t seem to have those toxic on-again off-again relationships which are common at that age. I think she has sex with her boyfriends once, and then refuses to do it again or insists upon only kissing or cuddling. When the boy starts nagging or questioning why they never have sex she dumps them. She prefers younger boys because they are easier to ‘control’ in a relationship.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      @epiphany: Exactly.
      This PR contract ‘relationship’ just came to it’s timed conclusion. They both got what they wanted out of it: headlines and publicity.
      This ‘relationship’ wasn’t real IMO.

  20. BooBooLaRue says:

    Still has time to find a date for the prom.

  21. Dani says:

    I really can’t wait to see what he will say about her. He’s known to not be so nice after breakups – he openly said his 31 year old ex had bad breath and giggled along with his fellow boy banders.

    • Jess says:

      He’s 18. Sorry, but the 31 year old gets what she gets, and so does Taylor if you ask me. I remember being 18, and I distinctly remember the boys being a bunch of little punks, and the only way we kept them in line was to be as immature as they were and play stupid games. That’s what that entire period of college is good for. Somewhere around 20-21 you stop being a complete asshole and grow up a little. By 23? Why in the world would you want to be dealing with an 18 year old? Is she a massochist?

    • Sam says:

      Guess we’ll see. I imagine that he’ll be tight lipped at least long enough to see if she writes a song about him. If he says something now about her, there will definitely be an album dedicated to him and his every flaw.

    • Dani says:

      Jess, I agree, I don’t understand why anyone over the age of 18 would want to be with anyone that’s 18. Especially when it’s an older woman – men mature so much slower, it’s like you’re really dating a 16 year old.

  22. Holden says:

    He either said, “Stop borrowing my pants, you are stretching them out” or “I’m gay”.

  23. Chickenlishus says:

    I read somewhere (Dlisted, maybe) she tweeted something afterwards along the lines of “Til ya put me down.” A new lyric, already?!

  24. Jaded says:

    I’d dump the guy strictly for that godawful hairdo.

  25. apsutter says:

    How in the hell can you possibly write music about relationships that only last a month or two?! Nothing important or worthwhile can happen in a relationship that burns out that quick. It’s just a fling, not any kind of real relationship. Talk to me when she gets a boyfriend and keeps him for a over a year.

  26. Suzy says:

    I heard HE caught her texting Connor.

    And if he told her anything she didn’t want to hear, it was “I’m in love with my BFF, Louis”. LARRY FOREVER!

  27. tabasco says:

    maybe he recommended that she stop wearing those high-waisted shorts

  28. jess says:

    Uhm….she is 23. Weird that the article would give her age as 22, when she def just turned 23 like last month. All that crap about Harry getting her 23 cupcakes for her bday, remember? Hate myself for knowing that. But I just wonder if there is a reason behind it….like is she slowly beginning to lie about her age? Is this how they do it…..randomly use different ages until nobody remembers how old a person really is? lol or maybe 22 sounds better with 18 than 23 does? Idk just strange.

  29. KellyinSeattle says:

    “You tease; and I let you meet my parents”…does Taylor Swift have parents in the picture? Just wondering. Also, maybe he told her to get rid of the bangs. She really does creep me out.

  30. Kathryn says:

    I think people are going to get tired of Taylor Swift. With her “I’m dating someone for two days now I’m buying a house next to them, this is different I’m in love, two months later I hate you.”
    She’s like the boy who cried wolf but more obnoxious because she’s done it dozens of times instead of three.
    News outlets don’t even report her new relationships likes news anymore X17 actually refers to them as her future-ex now.

  31. Kaboom says:

    She may be trying to learn how relationships fail by drawing a valid statistical sample of maybe 50 or 100 attempts. Very scientific!

  32. Emilia says:

    I hope they get back togehter! The belong together!
    Go Haylor!

  33. Emilia says:

    I hope they get back togehter!
    Go Haylor!

  34. Emilia says:

    I hope they get back together!
    Go Haylor!

  35. Emilia says:

    It’s sad that they broke up, I hope they get back together.

  36. Shira says:

    She’s being pathetic, really. What does she need to date an 18-year-old for!? What do you expect him to be, serious and mature???

  37. Lis says:

    Why do I get the feeling that she’ll have someone already lined up for the most perfect Valentine’s Day photo op? No one will ever take her seriously.

  38. nikko says:

    I think she’s too clingy. Why can’t she keep a boyfriend. Something about her has to be a little (lot) strange.

  39. Christin says:

    Taylor strikes me as emotionally much younger than her physical age. I base much of that on her rather juvenile song lyrics.

    Harry was just her latest “temp” (temporary beau), it seems.

    Who knows what to believe, but there were stories last summer suggesting that Connor Kennedy’s dad told him to focus on his studies instead of hopping on Taylor’s jet and having her calling/texting him all the time. And I fully understand that (I would have had concerns from day one, given her history and what he’s been through).

  40. WendyNerd says:

    There was this blind item a while ago about a young, likable, well-known girl celebrity who is popular with teen girls and insanely marketable. But she dated some guy who a douche reputation, got pregnant, and had an abortion and now the only “relationships” she has are bearding contracts her management set up for her. It talked about how she’s a member of this “hot young couple”, that the paparazzi are notified whenever they’re out holding hands and how this relationship is fake, that it is scheduled to be short, and would last past New Years but wouldn’t make it to Valentines Day. It came out right when Swifty started dating Harry Styles.

    After reading that, I stopped getting pissed about her going through boys like tampons and started feeling sorry for her. That is, if it’s about her.

    If it isn’t..

    Then I imagine she one of those crazy celebrity stalkers. She just happens to be a celebrity herself. She’s probably one of those types who is a lot of fun to know at first, very charming, and then after a few weeks of knowing them the crazy comes out. I imagine that (if the blind item is false) she’s probably got a creepy book of all the celebrities she’ll date or something freakish like that.

  41. Asdfg says:

    Taylor’s December Cosmo interview:

    Cosmo: Are there other moves you won’t tolerate?
    Taylor: I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you. It’s a conscious thing; it’s a common-sense thing. If I was in that situation, if I were them, would I be doing this to me? Would I ever do this to them? If the answer is no, then they’re not treating me fairly. I just don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair ever again.

    THIS ^^^^^ basically sums it up for me. She’s clingy and insecure.

  42. Tuxedo Cat says:

    Taylor needs to quit with the instant intimacy. She’s acting like a kid in a candy store, and it’s not very dignified.

  43. Dommy Dearest says:

    I just can’t view them as adults. They look like teenagers trying to play dress up.

  44. Anna says:

    oh come on people. This was NOT a real relationship. Harry and Taylor planned it all. They planned to break up around now as well. They never ever slept together. And if you look closely at the pictures of them holding hands, they both usually look miserable. Apparently they broke up earlier than the contract entailed because Harry and Taylor really couldn’t stand each other. I am SO tired of all these celebrities playing us like pawns. over and over and over.

  45. Bread and Circuses says:

    he said something he shouldn’t have.

    Probably something true.

    I don’t think Swifty deals too well with anything that threatens to puncture her rainbow-sheened bubble of delusion.

  46. Jill says:

    Hey said, “Here, write a song about my *beeeeeep* lol

  47. kate says:

    Brits use the c word too easily? Brits have a different definition of alcoholic than americans? Its hard to tell Brits and gay people apart sometimes?
    Gosh. Im so glad I have you lovely people to educate me about my fellow countrymen.

  48. hunny says:

    Personally I think.. taylor is beautiful and the sweet kind of girl, very innocent that man can fall in love easily. But after a while this can be boring things for man.. thats why her relationship never last more than couple of months.

  49. val says:

    All of her ex boyfriends should get together and record an album called “Maybe You’re The Problem”
