Did Taylor Swift & Harry Styles already break up after less than 2 months together?

Whenever Taylor Swift gets photographed with a new boyfriend within a few weeks of the start of the relationship, my first thought is always, “Yay! I’m so glad I’ll have pics to use when they breakup!” That is exactly how I felt when I saw these photos of Swifty and Harry Styles in early December. I looked through them, quickly picturing their use on some Us Weekly cover with the blaring headline “Taylor’s Broken Heart” or “Taylor Swift’s Sad Breakup Diet”. Prepare yourselves for that, because I’m sure it’s coming. Life & Style and some other outlets are reporting that Swifty and Harry broke up over the holidays!!

Start writing your new No. 1 single, Taylor! Life & Style can exclusively reveal that Taylor Swift and her boyfriend, Harry Styles, have split.

After only two months of dating, the One Direction star, 18, and country crooner, 23, have decided to break up, a source confirms to Life & Style.

“They are both really busy and never in one place for long. Harry’s really upset about the split and is really sensitive about it,” the source tells Life & Style, adding, “Loads of his friends told him to be careful and that it was never going to last, and he feels a little foolish now that it’s fallen apart so quickly.”

The duo were first caught holding hands on the set of The X Factor in mid-November, later going public with their relationship.

Following a series of sleepovers in early December, Taylor and Harry were spotted spending time together with Justin Bieber and on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez when the couples went skiing in Utah the week before Christmas.

As Life & Style reported in December, Harry even met Taylor’s parents following One Direction’s Dec. 3 show at Madison Square Garden in NYC.

Since then, Taylor flew to England to spend the holidays with Harry and his family. The duo also rang in the New Year together in NYC — where they were filmed kissing as the clock struck midnight.

“[Taylor]‘s a really lovely girl. Honestly, she couldn’t be a sweeter person. She’s a great girl and she’s extremely talented,” the teen heartthrob told Seventeen Magazine about the “I Knew You Were Trouble” songstress in November. “[She]‘s one of those people you meet [who's] genuinely a nice person. Some people you meet and they are not as nice as you make them out to be, but she’s one of those people who’s really just amazing.”

Ah, young love, sometimes…it just doesn’t last!

BusinessInsider.com was the first to report the split. Reps for both stars did not comment.

[From Life & Style]

I have four possible scenarios from here:

Scenario #1: They’ll copy Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez and do the on-again-off-again thing for a few months. It will include more hotel sleepovers and public fights at restaurants. Lots of tears. Some tweeting back and forth with threats and recriminations.

Scenario #2: This is really the end and Swifty will go running back to Conor Kennedy…?

Scenario #3: This is really the end and Swifty will bide her time before she makes a play for Ed Sheeran. They’re going to be on tour together in a few months, and I could totally see it except for one thing – Swifty’s #1 priority in boyfriends is “good hair” and Ed’s hair is kind of meh.

Scenario #4: Swifty and Harry haven’t broken up yet, and this is just a weird, sketchy report.

    FFS, Taylor.
    Right, everyone. You know the drill.
    Into the bunker, single file, three personal items each (furry kids do not count as personal items, they now have their own bunker. Yeah baby, that’s right – we’ve upgraded. There’s been a lot of renovation for the upcoming Twi-pocalypse.)
    Grab the double beds while they’re still there and find a comfy spot on the floor for the midnight showing of Les Mis.
    We’ve got a few months supply of fresh veggies assuming the hydroponics system doesn’t pack in and a fully stocked kitchen.
    It’s BYOB, though.
    Christ, I should really start getting keys cut, the rate Swifty’s going through ‘em.
    I can’t be arsed with her anymore, I’m probably not even going to lock the bunker.
    Unless the 1D loonies come-a-screeching . . .

    • Dimebox says:

      Love this! Doomsday Preppers should have an episode on this coming disaster.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Shotgun one of the double beds. I’ve got my wine, haribo and nicotine gum. Let’s get this party started.

    • Annie says:

      DEAD lmao.

      This is so stupid of Swift. She needs to stop. She looks so dumb. I really doubt these relationships are real and I would not be surprised if she was still a virgin. She seems so clueless and childish around men. There’s no adult approach to love and romance. Like my friend the alleged “maneater”. She’s always telling people about her experience with men and her dozens of casual hook ups, always advicing girls, but the last time she dated a guy (after AGES of not being on a date) she started calling him “my boyfriend” AFTER THE SECOND DATE and started inviting him to family trips. The poor guy ran to the hills leaving his shaped sized hole on the wall. I remember thinking “Girl is clueless and all her stories are BS!” :O And it’s a 20-something like Swift. This is how I feel about Taylor. She sings about love but it’s her image. She really has no idea.

  2. carrie says:

    what a surprise????! (roll eyes)
    whyy???? they were so cute together!!!(roll eyes)
    i thought it was forever (irony)

  3. Amy625 says:

    Weird, sketchy report but they will break up in at least a month. They are both going on tour and 3 months seems to be Taylor’s expiration date.

  4. brin says:

    I don’t think half of these “couples” actually date, I think they just show up together and get papped. Just publicity for them.
    Taylor needs to take a break, she looks ridiculous.

  5. Birdie says:

    She better not touch that lovely ginger hair of Ed Sheeran!! He is too good for her.

  6. katiebob says:

    can you break up if you were never actually together?

  7. gee says:

    I dont get it.. 2 months is hardly long enough to be in a relationship. I date guys for a couple weeks and things don’t work out, they’re not my ex’s, they’re just guys I dated a few times. Like, why is she so quick to rush into relationships?

    • QQ says:

      THIS Gee This Breathless reporting on the Girlwoman has me annoyed for a few reasons;

      A) she is 22, creepy but 22 she aint getting married any time soon, this is what the youth does, they test a few models, fuck, as far as im concerned she is doing THEM a Favor dating one at the time instead of multiples. None of these guys are forever , so now we’e made our Maiden of Kittens and ponyRainbow look “slutty”

      B) This Reporting reinforces her source material instead of forcing Girlwoman to grow up an talk about SOMETHING, ANYTHING else other than The Boy Who Broke My heart woeth me…

      …. Which brings me to

      C) this Girlwoman wants to play ball, Cool, do it By all means… But stop whining about it to the press and through your albums when it doesnt work out, Homie

  8. Zoid says:

    I’m more interesting in what his fans will have to say… About how he is a poor victim to her heart stealing soul crushing ways. Nothing that is more terrifying and also amusing than watching a bunch of 13 year olds ‘threaten’ people on twitter. I’m very thankful there were no social media sites when I was that young… But I’d like to think I wouldn’t act so foolishly.

  9. some bitch says:

    So… two, three days until her next whirlwind romance? Can’t wait to hear the songs for THIS one.

  10. Miss Kiki says:

    I had put money on them lasting until around the end if Feb. If these 2 can’t make it then what hope is there for the rest of us?!….

  11. Ms Kay says:

    *grabs piece of paper and pen*

    *writes few words*

    *reads out lout*

    - HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa…

    *turns piece of paper around*

    - …. Ha!

  12. Erinn says:

    Fun story. A guy I work with had a discussion the other day with a 15 year old girl about how much she hates TSwift because she’s making Harry pretend to not be gay with whatever other band mate.

    Which I was amused by because I’d have thought most of the young teens just wanted Harry to themselves, or were diehard Swift fans. But this girl was relatively unselfish in wanting Harry to be happy with the band mate.

  13. Annie says:

    Quelle surprise. Seriously, she looks so stupid and if she doesn’t cut it out now, she’s going to lose all authenticity she has left. People are going to call her out on her bs more directly.
    I honestly think two things: all her celebrity hook ups are PR but she is also afraid of men. Which is why she mostly chooses gays or younger boys: Jake G, Taylor Lautner, the Kennedy kid (I do think this one was real), and Harry. She’s a 20-something woman, what is she doing dating teens and posing with closeted gay celebrities? It’s like a college graduate dating a high school senior or the girl desperate to have a bf, she’ll go for the gay guy. It’s messed up. At her age I liked guys that were a few years older than me. I never liked teens even as a teen. They’re insufferable.
    I don’t buy for a second the whole John Mayer affair. If a womaneater like John had gotten his hands on her and spat her out like he does hirl would be in a mental institution right now.

  14. aang says:

    heard an interview with ed sheeren on npr. he seems too old ( 22 i think), very together, and kind of geeky (he builds star wars lego), hopefully not her type.

  15. Jess says:

    I don’t know, I am pretty convinced that this is a publicity-stunt relationship. I would go with Scenario Four – They haven’t actually broken up. That requires this relationship to be real. I would guess that the their respective contracts must be up for renewal.

  16. marie says:

    well I figured they’d fake make it to Valentine’s Day, color me meh..

  17. La Calabaza says:

    Am I the only one here rooting for her to hook up with Tom Cruise? He “likes” them young and tall. I guess she’s creepy enough to deal with all the scientology sh*it and when they got divorced, she can write songs about the tape auditing and shoe lifts. Anyone?

  18. Emily says:

    Is it wrong that I kind of want her to get back together with Connor?

  19. ms.steel says:

    I’m only interested with 2 things:
    1. What is the title of the next single?
    2. Whose the next guy?

  20. Barbara says:

    I think she dates when she needs new song lyrics. I am so over this chick and I cannot believe she finds guys to date her unless they need publicity. Now I understand the Garbage song Stupid Girl..

  21. Jenna says:

    Oh, I can’t wait for the breakup songs for this one!!! :D

  22. DB says:

    This girl is just mental. Men (and boys) should simply learn to avoid her at all costs. She can’t possibly be worth all the hassle.

    Run, members of the Male species – and don’t stop until she’s at least two continents away.

    She’s got “issues”

  23. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    The only reasons I thought this one may have been for real was bc she hung out with his family a lot lately… and that they vacationed places where they weren’t papped, but the public found out when fans bumped into them and uploaded personal pics to Twitter and would tag TS/HS.. whatevs.. Their NYE kiss in Times Square was cute though

  24. Hope says:

    Don’t worry, their contract will be renegotiated soon and they’ll be bearding it up again before long. How many times do I have to say it? BEARD!

  25. Michele says:

    Broken up already? That was quick even for her!

  26. Norah says:

    And now swifty is gonna walk in on Kim kardashian’s ass in labor and be all like ‘yo, kimye, I’m happy for ya and imma let you finish having yo baby, but beyonce had one of the cutest babies eva’

  27. Sam says:

    They need to throw out the “Forever Alone” meme face and replace it with hers.

  28. Norah says:

    And now she is gonna walk in on Kim kardashian’s ass in labor and be all like ‘yo, kimye, I’m happy for ya and imma let you finish having yo baby, but beyonce had one of the cutest babies eva’

  29. dorothy says:

    Done with another one? I can hear the announcement now. Calling potential husband number 14, number 14. Your number has been called please report to the TS tour bus, and bring your proof of residence so we can alert realtor’s in area to search for a home for Ms. Swift.

  30. Andrew says:

    I think they’re just both too busy…I really don’t think they were ever completely together as a couple. They seemed to just be showy for photogs. Anyway, she needs to slow down…she barely knew the guy and she was probably planning the marriage within two weeks of being with him.

  31. Brittany says:

    People Mag is reporting it so I guess it’s true.

  32. Amanda says:

    Were they even a couple or were they just dating and it didn’t work out?

  33. Jayna says:

    She dates guys that will be bored with her after a while. She’s a cute enough girl who acts geeky young and isn’t really sexy. Why doesn’t she get a great Nashville musician, instead of chasing after these huge stars or really pretty boys? The ending is already known. Harry is the “it” boy right now. Like that was going to last more than a nanosecond.

  34. scarlett says:

    Wasn’t this all about publicity anyway? I mean really? I can’t imagine that anyone would buy into this being more than a brief stint for PR. At least she probably won’t write one of her heartbreak ditties or I hope she doesn’t. They dated a hot minute.

  35. scarlett says:

    She obviously isn’t really looking for lifelong love or something permanent. I mean look at her former partners: John Mayer(nuff said), Jake Gyllanhaal (gay rumors)Taylor Lautner (99% sure this guy is gay and they wanted to push that horrible movie they did together), Harry Styles (he’s 18, don’t think he’s gay but he seems to have the depth of a kiddie pool) and let’s not forget the Kennedy kid (junior in high school). That list of suitors tell all.

  36. Sarah says:

    They’ll get back together in time for valentines day for a big reunion magazine cover, or in time for the Grammys

  37. Sean says:

    Only a 60 day contract this time? Must be too expensive for longer beard contract for this guy.

  38. paige says:

    All of taylor swift’s so call relationships are publicity stunts. I don’t care how young she is it still seems childish and trashy. She finds a celebrity guy use them as bait and material to write about for her next album. She knows the PR game. She has a list of rules by now that are completely predictable. Find Boyfriend. Let Media go crazy over it.Dump boyfriend. Write new song for album. Find new boyfriend. What men are dumb enough to keep going out with her if they know they are only there to be used for a petty break up song. I hate Taylor Swift. She is a non singing no talent tramp. Someone please write a song about her. She will one day find the right one to write about and it won’ t be pretty.

  39. juju says:

    lets see she had about 20 boyfriends in 2012,lets see what the count is at the end of 2013 !!!

  40. Sue says:

    Maybe they each just wanted someone to spend the holidays with. Nothing the matter with that…….

  41. Helvetica says:

    Aww. I was liking these two together.

  42. val says:

    Why can’t I stop singing that song “Another One Bites the Dust” in my head. Damn you Taylor. I don’t even like the song!!!

  43. KellyinSeattle says:

    On my knees, praying, “Please make her go away”…

  44. Anna says:

    this was NOT a real relationship. At all. It was thought up by Taylor and Harry and worked. Everyone believed it and now they get to break up and harry goes back to Louis for a while and Taylor finds another beard until she really does fall in love with someone.

  45. Amy says:

    Yeah I don’t believe for a second this was a real relationship. The two of them decided they both needed a career boost and probably got along well enough that they decided to carry on a faux-mance.

    I think I remember commenting that this would be over by New Year’s. And it was!

  46. Marion says:

    Since she’s his beard, why care??!!!

  47. Miss M says:

    Should I believe in those blind items?

    I guess so…Let’s see: She got knocked up by John Mayer, got an abortion and ever since she is bearding. :o

    • Issa says:

      Well there was definitely a blind item about them breaking up after the holidays. Then again its Swift, its like saying the sun will shine again someday. Her breaking up with her new toy, is an easy blind item to make up. It will eventually happen.

  48. stellalovejoydiver says:

    Wasn`t Harry also dating Cara Delevigne at the same time. Maybe he dumped Swifty for her(unless he is gay, but I think he is bisexual), I think they would fit a lot better together.

  49. Donny says:

    Scenario 5. Next time she has something to promote she will have a new “celeb” boyfriend and she will do lots of photo ops and then they’ll split up within 2 months. She has become so predictable.

  50. Kate (newer one) says:

    Seriously, why is someone in their mid-20s with a succession of 18 year olds? I can’t get that one. You grow up so fast in those years.

  51. F5 says:

    She is never ever gonna stay together with anybody, girl’s gotta beard ◠‿◠

  52. Jub-Jub says:

    It was only nearly two months?! It felt like six months!

  53. juicyjackie says:

    She should get together with Jennifer Love Hewitt and get it over and done with, 2 sad birds, one stone

  54. Christin says:

    She seems to be stuck around 16 to 18 years old, maturity-wise. That is judging from some of her recent song lyrics and behavior. Then again, who knows how much of these shenanigans are about publicity. At least she hasn’t been known to have hooked up with a married guy yet (think LeAnn).

  55. taksi says:

    I’m pretty sure this was a fake relationship to distance herself from the Kennedy dumping; too obviously public.

  56. Lory says:

    Scenario #5 Harry goes on to launch his solo career as all the publicity he has gained by being with Skanky Swift has given him more exposure. Well played Harry.
