Swift uncomfortable with Hiddleston’s need to be so public (update: they broke up)

wenn29440541

Even though I didn’t really believe yesterday’s story about the cracks in the greatest romance known to man, The Glorious Tiddlebanging of 2016, I still believe that Tom and Taylor are probably on their way to a break up, sooner rather than later. I think I originally said that they wouldn’t make it to September, and I might have been right – they haven’t seen each other in weeks, and sources are now whispering to shady outlets like Radar and the Daily Mail. The DM had an exclusive on Monday about the state of the Tiddlebanging and OMG, this might be my favorite Tiddles story so far. Just a month and a half ago, we were hearing endlessly about how Taylor wanted to marry Tom and he was the perfect English gentleman (because he drinks tea) and Tiddlebabies were going to happen. It was like Tay-Tay’s Lisa Frank dream journal entries got floated to major gossip outlets. But now some sinister sh-t is being floated to the DM.

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston’s relationship is in trouble after less than three months together. An insider exclusively told DailyMail.com that the 26-year-old pop star feels ‘uncomfortable’ with the 35-year-old actor’s desire to be ‘so public’ about their romance. Tom has apparently asked Taylor to the Emmy Awards later this month, but she has been questioning whether he is with her for ‘the right reasons’.

‘Tom wants their relationship to be public, even asking Taylor to go to the Emmys with him, but Taylor wants to keep her private life private,’ the source revealed. The singer, who has never walked the red carpet with a boyfriend before, is now having doubts about their romance.

‘Tom’s need for their relationship to be so public so quickly makes her uncomfortable,’ the insider told DailyMail.com. ‘She tried to be OK with it in the beginning but fears he is in love with the idea of her and not falling in love with her for the right reasons. Taylor is an independent young woman and doesn’t feel like she needs a boyfriend to make her complete.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha – gasp – hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

See? My new favorite story. This is how we know that The Glorious Tiddlebanging is entering its final stages: Tay-Tay’s version of events gets out, and we’re getting a preview of the blind item songs she’ll write about him. Someone thinks that we’ll buy the version of events where HE is the famewhore, and he is the one who wanted all of their Tiddlebanging to be so public (hahaha) and he’s the immature one who only likes the idea/fantasy of a person, not the reality (hahaha). This sounds like Full Trump, right? Whatever Trump is accused of, he’s so childish that he tries to accuse Hillary of the same thing (I’m rubber, you’re glue!). We see you, Snake Emoji.

Update by Celebitchy: Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have broken up. Both US Magazine and People are confirming. US is essentially trying to sell us this same b.s. version of events – that Tom was too publicity-hungry and that Taylor broke up with him. Kaiser called it. Our new story about the breakup is here.

    Ahahahahahaha. Sorry where was I, oh yes Tay Tay uncomfortable with ‘his need to go public’. Go one Swift PR, making Tom out to be a fameho who is only interested in her because she’s famous. Her PR team must be reading this board.

    • frisbee says:

      Her PR are definitely reading ALL the boards to see how they can play it out so it’s not Taylors ickle fawlt. She must be hiring people as emotionally stunted as she is…
      (Edit – not all adolescents are emotionally stunted – my bad…)

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      Bwahahahahaha and more Bwahahahahaha *can’t stop laughing sorry* I’m usually no Hiddleston apologist but this is a case of “pot calling the kettle black” indeed!!
      I’m sad if they split up though because Tayto is a match made in fameho heaven.

    • BTownGirl says:

      Oh Princess Sparkles Strawberry Cupcake, you didn’t look uncomfortable with the photographers on YOUR property documenting TiddlesCuddles! Girl, bye.

    • Miffy says:

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! ‘Independent young woman who doesn’t need a man’?!?! Isn’t she the poster child for immature and codependent?! Oh mah gawd! I can’t! I CAN’T!!!

    • Andrea says:

      The latest headline at dm is saying they have split up.

    • CTgirl says:

      Wait, what? The stunted young woman, who turns every outing with her significant other of the moment into a veritable perp walk, thinks he’s the fame whore? The girl who dines out on her relationship disasters for months in her songs is worried he isn’t “in love with her for the right reasons”? TayTay is this generation’s greatest relationship revisionist. It doesn’t matter if it’s true so long as you go down proclaiming “your truth” to the bitter end. Aim high cupcake, aim high.

    • Lisa says:

      OMG, thank fukk these two finally spilt! He’s like WAY TOO AWESOME for her. I think now he can get on with being a serious actor and leave this shit swiftly behind him! phnaar.

  2. jeanpierre says:

    The snake got jokes.
    That’s a good looking suit on TH. Not found of the color though.

    • Bluebelle says:

      Just by reading the title, I was going to comment “hahahaahahahahahaha” but it seems a lot of us think alike!

  3. littlemissnaughty says:

    A few publicists are really earning their money this summer. Love it.

  4. Jess says:

    The Daily Mail? Really? Lol

    People is Taylor’s publicist mouthpiece. Not the DM. Or US Magazine (that was the one her old publicist used)

    The rest is all speculation, and we all know it.

    • Jegede says:

      Yeah, there’s a reason we in Blighty call them the Daily Fail.

      Enjoy their great pictures but never, ever, believe their write ups.

      This would be more credible if it were coming from The Sun.

      • Zuzus Girl says:

        I like going to that site sometimes because they do get good photos but they have the absolute worst writing and editing. It’s embarrassing.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Yes, but without the Fail, how would we know which actresses have toned pins, shapely derrieres, trim tummies, fabulous fit figures, or my favourite, “pert derrieres”? They are currently going wild over Khloe Kardashian’s rear end and the pictures are hilarious.

        Apparently, they’re obsessed with Kardashians.

      • shelly says:

        Yes EsCon not to mention showcasing their curves (put on a few pounds), gym honed (lost a few pounds) and of course the old classic, beach ready (wearing a bikini and sporting a pedicure)

        What would we do without the Fail.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @Shelly

        Dammit! I forgot about everyone showcasing their curves! And putting their long, endless legs on display!

      • Jeanette says:

        And the witty lead-ins..

        All aboard the soul train..for the Beyonce pics. Shake it off..for the Kim Zoliack pics..These boots were made for “gawking” Kim pictures..etc etc

      • Elizabeth says:

        Don’t forget tresses and locks.

      • Jegede says:

        I stand corrected – Looks like Daily Fail was right!

        Daily Fail had the goss before People and US??

      • Annetommy says:

        And very importantly those pictured in the Mail are always FLAUNTING their pert or trim what nots.

      • TheOtherSam says:

        And legs = ‘pins’. They are the worst.

    • Luca76 says:

      Seriously its kind of laughable at this point we all should know better.

    • Naya says:

      I dont know, paired with the Radar Online piece this may actually make sense. The Radar story felt very much like it came from Toms side and this could be Taylors comeback. DM must be pretty confident in their source if they are bringing the Emmys into it. Cooking a story that would be easily disproved when she walks down the red carpet on his arm, doesnt seem smart. On the other hand, DM is still a tabloid…

    • Dara says:

      *dons tinfoil hat* It was a holiday in the US on Monday, so it’s likely that none of Taylor’s usual go-to publications (or mouthpieces) were available to refute the Radar Online story, and almost no one stateside would have been paying attention anyway, so they were forced to go to the DM.

      As much as I roll my eyes at the Fail, and I do it a lot, I have to admit that this “source” nailed all of the usual Team Taylor taglines when they do damage control – Taylor is an innocent who is being used by an evil man (check), she is just living her life and wants nothing to do with all this tacky publicity (check), and my personal favorite, she’s an independent woman who doesn’t need a man (check). Mind you, I don’t think any of that is true, but those are the very consistent themes her team always seem to use, so either the Fail got lucky and finally hired an intern that would write a decent story, or they had help from someone.

      • Dippit says:

        Definitely help from a Taylor approved source. AND she hasn’t loaded the Comments on DM with her paid shills.

        Groundwork for the break-up.

      • Llamas says:

        Oh some of the comment boards on DM make me weep. Like the ones about the buckets – that’s all the comedy I need, all of the comments are so validating of my views of that couple.

      • Miffy says:

        Oh very good! Great detective work. Hope your moulding that tinfoil hat into the shape of Sherlock Holmes’ deer hunting hat.

  5. Little Darling says:

    Genuine question:
    Do you think Tiddles got together because:
    A) Calvin needed to be played.
    B) Kimye needed to be distracted from showing receipts.
    C) mom and dad dancing made these two kids hot for one another and it was inevitable their stars would cross?

    I know it’s been theorized they got together to boost his image for the Emmys/James bond and it seemed at first it was to get back at Calvin, then it seemed bigger than that, that she went full throttle to take the news away from Kim.

    I think all of that was just too much for Tom. It went epically south so fast for a showmance I can’t imagine staying in it much longer. Could you imagine? Talk about feeling like you signed a deal with the devil!

    What I don’t like is that she’s getting the narrative on the breakup story. Whatever reason, whoever is talking it’s going to be her story of a breakup, watch.

    • Betti says:

      I think A and B – she knew about Kim’s receipts well in advance. Tay Tay has a short attention span – none of her ‘relationships’ seem to last longer than a few months. She gets bored easily, For him, it was an opportunity to boost his profile as he is obsessed with being super famous – he thirsts for HW A List status and thought she would help with that. Seems she forgot to tell him about Kim and her videos – i think if he’d have known in advance he would have run a mile. She played him for an idiot on that point and now the dust has settled she has no need for the narrative the being with him brings.

      This story is typical Swift PR, plant negative narratives about said BF before the breakup is leaked. Anything to paint Tay Tay as the victim – yet again!!

      • Anthi says:

        Probably all all of the above. I don’t think anyone takes her narrative right now into serious consideration…well except swifties I guess. I mean “Hiddles was publicity hungry and Taylor was uncomfortable with their relationship being in the limelight and felt used by Legs”……. ROFLMFAO!!!!!!!! Bless you Taylor Swift I can’t remember when was the last time I laughed so hard!

    • Emily says:

      That’s why I don’t understand why famous guys keep dating her. She ALWAYS gets the narrative on the break up story. We all know she’s going to come out with an album full of thinly veiled songs about the latest guy. Even Harry Styles, a popular singer himself, only had one song where people were like “well, this one line MIGHT be about Taylor” and it wasn’t even that informative/mean.

      • chaine says:

        cuz famous guys, much like regular guys, are clueless. they don’t read the gossip sites, they don’t read the tabloids, they don’t follow Celebitchy. They meet a famous woman for whom all sorts of red flags should go up, and, instead, just like a non-famous guy, their main thought is (imagine a Homer Simpson voice, please), “mmmm, boobies!”

      • koko says:

        @chaine…..+1000

      • Miffy says:

        I think there’s one or two in her stable of exes who benefited, they liked being painted as the can’t-be-tamed heart breakers to her hopeless romantic victim. You know One Direction’s PR people all spontaneously ejaculated at the hint that Trouble was about their legally required boy band bad boy.

      • Ankhel says:

        @chaine,

        I heard that in Al Bundys voice, clear as day.

    • jeanpierre says:

      I think TS was going for préemptive strike regarding Kimye Receipts, and team TH was fooled by the somehow good feedback of their first public get together (the awkward dancing)

    • Tiffany27 says:

      B)

      I honestly think Tay knew Receipts Week was upon us and concocted this entire thing as a distraction. She lucked out in meeting a person who’s just as, if not more thirsty than she is.

      • Fa says:

        She Definitely knew PR people know each other professionally if something going to be say in the press about their client a PR have to inform that client what coming and it all started with GQ interview of Kim & Tom & TS made the relationship public just week before that interview

    • Luca76 says:

      I believe they’re a real couple. I also think they went so public because of all the reasons you listed and Tom wanting to introduce himself to a bigger audience. More than one thing can be true at once and for years we’ve seen many couples launch their relationship as a brand. (Kimye, Jen&Justin etc) These two just are both so awkward. And TH’s fan base was going to Sophie Hunter whoever he went public with. The problem was that whereas no real publications touched the Sophie Hunter rumors because they were obviously fake, the same kind of silly tumblr conspiracy became gossip fodder because it was Taylor Swift.

    • Bonzo says:

      I think Tay & Calvin were effectively on the outs by early May and she saw that Tom was willing to get involved and went for it. The timing was perfect because she knew Kim had damning video that would put her version of events prior to the Grammys in dispute. So, she both stuck it to Calvin and create a huge PR feeding frenzy the day before the GQ article came out and showed that she was over Calvin and moving on.

      Tom was the perfect companion in all of this because he’s SO thirsty for A-list fame, he’d get involved with someone as immature and predicable as Taylor. I think his dating choice shows he cares more about being famous than being respected. I’m sure they were hoping the media would hype the English Prince & the American Sweetheart narrative so they weren’t expecting the backlash and mockery they got. Now, it’s a question of how to end it without either of them looking like a user (which they both are) or a jerk.

      I think they’ll hang in past the Emmys at least and perhaps a little while longer (Golden Globes, Skull Island premier?) but the writing is definitely on the wall. Also, she has to get back to work and get an album written, recorded, videos filmed and prepare for a new tour. A lot is riding on it because of the success of 1989 and all the bad press she’s had the past year (the negative articles about her started up in 2015) and so she’s in dire need of an image adjustment. She is and will continue to work on that in the midst of this mess.

      Tom is in damage mode insofar as he can see the actual damage done to his image, which is debatable. I’m not sure his love of being famous can trump his awareness of how much he needs to break ties with her. I think whether or not she attends the Emmys with him will indicate how aware he actually is.

      • lilacflowers says:

        I think Taylor and Calvin decided in March to take a break and re-connect mid-May to reassess whether to end or continue. He skipped out on multiple events in February, including a wedding at which she was Maid of Honor; significant others attend such things, and he was definitely disinterested when Ryan Seacrest brought her up during an April interview. He was more interested in talking about John Newman. They were over and just hadn’t announced it.

      • Naya says:

        Very astute. Now, I cant wait for the Emmy red carpet

      • Sixer says:

        I know nothing about La Swift but I cosign Bonzo pretty much.

        There may have been a genuine attraction there, which they BOTH spun into a tabloid romance for their own reasons. Yes, in that sense, BOTH are users. I think entertainment people see and deal with their relationships with all this stuff factored in, which makes judgements on these relationships by we civilians so often such nonsense. They don’t do it like we do it. Career and image is always factored in.

        I don’t know about her but presumably, this didn’t work out the way she wanted AT ALL, so the exit strategy is now in operation. Same for him. The choice for LEGS now is: go back to the original classy Brit story which can play reasonably well stateside and even if it doesn’t play out well enough for A lister status, still keeps him on the traditional Britisher path for eventual theatre luvvie knighthood. Or, find some other tabloid venture to up name recognition stateside even further and forget about what his elitist social and professional networks in Britland think. I suspect the former because it’s damage limitation.

      • shelly* says:

        I think he should do a Keeping up with the Hiddleston’s reality show.

        Such fun to be had, the classy Brit narrative is dull, I want him arguing with his mates and agonising over choosing curtains etc.

      • spidey says:

        Can’t see Tom choosing curtains – he can’t even be bothered to choose clothes!

      • Sixer says:

        See, I want the same outcome as you, Shelly. But I fear he will crawl right back into his Hallmark shell.

      • popup says:

        Yes, same. I basically wrote the same thing below before I read yours.

        I think their relationship may have legs, though. I’m eagerly awaiting the Emmy pictures (no red carpet but after party). I still don’t think an engagement/marriage is out of the picture, either. They’re well-suited and their union gives me much joy.

      • Bonzo says:

        Lilac, I’d cosign on that theory, since she embarked on her 1989 tour just a couple of months after hooking up with Calvin. By the time the infatuation wore off, they had been separated for seven months and when she was done touring in December, it only took a couple of months for Calvin to ditch two important events and signal things were unraveling. That’s pretty much how the romance timeline seems to work with her. So yeah, I could buy that they tried one last time to give it a go on that anniversary trip, complete with silly leg-up smoochy pic to keep the true love narrative rolling along.

        And, there’s the interesting twist of Tom following her on Twitter in March, as though he anticipated meeting her and becoming better acquainted at the Met Gala.

        Sixer, I agree that there is a genuine attraction, but it’s mixed in with a lot of PR strategizing. It’s never just about love and meeting one’s soulmate.

        I’m secretly hoping they’ll make another spectacle of themselves on Emmy night, giving us much laughter and when they cut the string, Tom pursues another A-lister so we can do it all again. No more Hallmark card, serious actor shiznit — BORING!

      • Sixer says:

        After Tiddles is over, it is my fondest hope that Taylor moves onwards and upwards with Prince Harry, and LEGS starts up with a Kardashian.

      • Bonzo says:

        As much as I adore that naughty little Ginger scamp, I’d have to admit it would be awesome for a Haylor hookup. And Tom with a Kardashian??? Oh my, it would be Gossip Christmas once again!

      • Solanacaea (Nighty) says:

        @Sixer, no.. Prince Harry is actually nice, don’t wish him that… As for TommyAnne with one of the Kardashians?… taylor would be fuming… Like it!!

      • popup says:

        @Solanacaea Hmm, okay. Harry used to be a problem child. He dressed up as a Nazi for a party and was videotaped using racial slurs, among other things. He was a bit of a wild party boy. In the past few years, he has done a great deal of personal and PR rehab, and I think mainly he grew up and became less of an asshole. He has five years on Taylor. I don’t think Taylor’s a bad person but she needs to grow up, too.

      • lily says:

        Wow! She sounds like an evil genius.

      • Tara says:

        @Bonzo: I can’t figure out why people say Tom is thirsty… Except for Tiddlesmania. Before her, he was rarely in the tabloids, and we rarely knew who he was dating. Sure, he’s c-list, but if he’s as thirsty as people say, I assume he or his publicist has a phone and a list of paps they could call. Or he could frequent popular clubs in London or LA.

        I don’t doubt he’d like to be more famous and does things to achieve that, but I don’t get the impression that his thirst is notable among actors.

        But I figured I missed a bulletin, so I searched online for insider gossip… Or any stories… Of Tom being really, very thirsty. And I can’t find them. I want the juicy scoop! So cough it up! :D

      • Cranberry says:

        @Tara: He’s mostly called thirsty because he’s very ambitious and because CB is all about the snark. Relatively speaking though he is in a business where major ambition is a prerequisite, but because he capitalized on his serious thespian notoriety he is held to that high standard.

        He rose very quickly from doing theater, a little TV and indie films to his current fame. After he landed the part of Loki he went full speed and signed up for every film job and appeared at any public or red carpet event. Most noticeably though his jubilant behavior at Marvel premier events in Korea when he danced on stage and did a very cringy Michael Jackson song. He and alleged gf Elizabeth Olsen did a date-night pap walk to get PR traction before the opening of ISTL and now the HiddleSwift PR-ship.

      • Bonzo says:

        Tara, he only appeared not to be thirsty because he was working nearly non-stop from early 2014 until last Spring. He had quite the rep for being the eager beaver, hungry for attention, excitable, piddling puppy dog back in his early days as a new celeb. Just check out this post from 2013:

        http://www.celebitchy.com/291973/tom_hiddleston_at_the_mtv_movie_awards_lovely_or_cringe-inducing_cheeseball/

        The TommyAnnE reference to Anne Hathaway came from the gals who frequented his posts back then.

    • M.A.F. says:

      option D). It was the summer and she needed a hobby.

      • Algernon says:

        Seconded. I think she was already in the process of splitting with Calvin Harris, and met a hot dude she wanted to bang for the summer.

        If Taylor had had some preemptive PR planning in place for Receipts Week, it would have been a trip to a children’s hospital or something family oriented, not a new boyfriend. She would have wanted to make herself look “of the people” and sweet and wholesome. Besides, the way she reacted in the immediate wake of the receipts seemed discombobulated and she retreated fast. She didn’t have a plan for that. I know it’s not the popular opinion, but I think Tiddles 2016 was just a 0-60 summer affair.

    • popup says:

      B and C.

      B: Taylor knew that GQ article was coming. Rhode Island rock kisses were published on June 15th, causing a huge gossip storm, and Kim’s GQ story boasting about receipts came out the very next day. The rock kisses crushed the receipts story (no coincidence), and nobody thought much of it until Kim produced the actual receipts on Snapchat on July 17th. I think Taylor was caught off caught by the actual receipts; I think she expected that she could call Kim’s bluff on that one but Kim did not GAF.

      C: Tom came around at the right time. I think she and Calvin were already done and there was a genuine attraction there and professionally they’re just so thirsty together that it worked out. If Taylor didn’t have Tom to leverage for Rhode Island rock kisses, then she probably would’ve used some other means to distract from the receipts story. I don’t think Tom was her mark from the start for the impending receiptsgate, but it was convenient timing and he was along for the ride.

    • Cranberry says:

      I swear I don’t get where you guys get that there’s a genuine attraction between these two. I don’t think Taylor ever really seemed attracted to him. And although Tom might have appreciated her pretty blond model looks and great legs, and aside from participating in staged PDAs, he was generally the same as he always is – enthusiastically happy guy Tom. He would show the same enthusiasm and attraction holding hands with a muppet. In fact I think he has.

    • tigerlily says:

      Me too. When I saw the subject/title I immediately thought pot meet kettle. Taytay is not liking him taking romance public? LOL…..sure…

  7. shelly* says:

    I wonder if Taylor has seen the Newzoid puppets of Her and Tom on youtube, and decided enough is enough.

    Poor Tommy, I hope this is just a ruse to lull us all into accepting its over, only for a RC extravaganza of loved up smugness at the Emmy’s.

    I will believe in Tayto until the day I see her on the arm of another man.

  8. Naya says:

    Damnit Taylor! I was arguing someone here a few weeks that she would never ever try to bad mouth him, just because we are all expecting it now and she needs to escape the whole “petty cray-cray ex girlfriend” image. Now she goes and proves me wrong?? Wtf is wrong with her. Why not keep it classy by just blaming it on distance and public scrutiny. Snakey Idiot.

    Also, haahahahahaha!

  9. H says:

    I see Taylor’s team is working overtime to change the narrative from yesterday of Tom not wanting to be her ‘boy toy.’ Ah, Taylor, we’re on to you and your shennighans.

  10. Birdix says:

    how bitter will he be after wearing the t-shirt and parading his mother around if she pulls this off, and shakes him off for being too clingy? talk about bad blood.
    That brown 3-piece suit makes me uncomfortable, too.

  11. ell says:

    but he is a famewhore. i mean, so is she, but he’s definitely famewhory too and always has been.

  12. BeBeA says:

    Lies and false propaganda. Lol be gone snake lady!

  13. Becky says:

    Taylor Swift private?

    Hahahahahahaha….hahahahahahahahahahahaha
    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Oh my aching sides.

  14. Lahdidahbaby says:

    Omgggg, pot, kettle, etc. Seems as if the Swift Camp is doing some hasty before-the-fact spin so that when the world finds out that she has had yet another failed relationship, it will seem it was her idea. HE was too publicity hungry, too eager to be papped with HER. Yep. It was all her idea because we all know how Taylor hates those pap-walks. That she takes anyway. Every day. Fully styled. It was all Tom’s need for attention.

    I think we can watch for the news any day now that the TayTo has baked itself into oblivion.

  15. Kilo Tango says:

    I have a theory about the three month point in a relationship. I think it’s the point where you actually start to see the other person through all the rose-tint. You have probably seen how they deal with those closest to them and I reckon it’s the last point to bail out before the serious stuff starts. That said that two met each other’s families in week two so what do I know?

    I guess her PR team are trying to pre-empt the ‘she chewed him up and spat him out’ routine by making it seem he used her for fame. To be fair it’s believeable and the truth is probably more boring!

    • Algernon says:

      Not to mention she met him when he wasn’t working. Now he’s working. He is, by all accounts, a very focused actor who doesn’t allow distractions. Over the summer, he had all the time in the world for her, but now he’s got a higher priority. I think Taylor’s the type to want to be the first priority, all the time, but you won’t be with Tom Hiddleston. He’s goal oriented and is still working his way up to where he wants to be, professionally. Contrary to popular opinion, Taylor Swift doesn’t actually help him with that.

      I think this is the reverse of what happened with Elizabeth Olsen, who met him while they were working and she knew him first when he was “in the zone,” then they broke up when the off-hours reality didn’t quite match who she initially thought he was. (Just my assumption, but it seemed to me that they had a set fling they tried to carry into the real world and it didn’t work out.)

    • Christin says:

      I think this is entirely plausible. Two to three months (especially after such an intense start) is where the bloom usually starts to wilt, if infatuation outweighs compatability.

      I do wonder if middle schoolers are used as a focus group for the romance and breakup narratives their (her) PR float.

      • Andrea says:

        Back in my 20′s, I broke up with a couple of men once it hit the 3-4 month mark. It got to the point where you think you are heading towards love or you just aren’t, and I just wasn’t. However, I think Taylor has me beat—I think I did that with only 3 men in a row in my mid 20′s. This is only the beginning..

  16. grabbyhands says:

    If there is truth to this, then the only thing more painfully obvious than the PR setup of this dream relationship is the dismantling of it now that it has backfired in both their faces.

    While he has indeed shown his thirst, I think it is still laughable that he would have been pushing the publicity of this more than her. This was her perfect, fairy tale, Aryan fantasy brought to life.

    I can see her going with him to the Emmys to wring the last bit of press out of it and then the breakup shortly thereafter.

    If this was indeed meant to help boost his chances for a Bond role, he must feel really low right now since Sony is trying to lure Daniel Craig back-like, they would rather pay a guy who said he’d rather slash his wrist than appear in another Bond movie $150 million than hire you. Dang.

  17. QueenB says:

    ‘Taylor is an independent young woman and doesn’t feel like she needs a boyfriend to make her complete.’

    oh god im dying. (not even how its totally forced into the story and has basically nothing to do with “Tom forcing private Taylor to be more public”)

    • MI6 says:

      He apparently also forced her to gain weight, if the tabloids are to be believed.
      Does this girl take responsibility for ANY of her choices??

      #NoEmmys #NoPDA #Noproblem.

      @Bonzo: You made my day with your post on yesterday’s thread. I will do my utmost to live up to your proud legacy of smut.

      • Bonzo says:

        MI6, I have no doubt you will!

        Oh, and while you may have believed in Santa Claus until you were 14, you were the one to call it that Taylor would stay away during his Emmy campaigning. So, I concede IF Tom attends, she MAY stay away, but I think the lure of the spotlight would be hard to resist.

        I keep thinking they’re pushing these “trouble in paradise” articles so that she’ll make a bigger splash when she does show up on the RC with Tom. You know me, the incurable cynic!

      • MI6 says:

        xo Bonzo!
        Nah, she’s done. This is on the front page of the NY Post now, so her PR is working overtime for an excuse on an Emmy no-show.
        Either Spidey is right and he told her he wants to go solo, or she doesn’t want to be further ridiculed for the Summer of Taynted Love. (I’m betting on the former). Either way, she’s not going.
        And as someone else pointed out, this girl wants it to be all about HER 24/7. She isn’t going as somebody’s arm candy.
        PS – my YOUNGER sisters had to break it to me that Santa was a myth. I was crushed.
        ;/

      • shelly says:

        Taynted Love…Genius

      • Bonzo says:

        Oooo…. now Page Six has picked it up, how interesting. That’s more newsworthy than the Fail since they can get legitimate scoops, like the Cumberbaby. I giggled when I read that she *suspects* Tom is using her for her fame. Hahahaha…. isn’t that what people have been saying since DAY 1?? Glad we could help clue her in!

        Perhaps she’s come to realize that having a workaholic boyfriend who spends months at a time on location and attends entirely different industry events than she already does is not the best idea. It just lends more support to the “serial dater” rep she’s cultivated the past decade.

      • Dara says:

        It’s interesting to see which of the gossip outlets picked up which version of the story. I would have thought the, “he’s tired of being arm candy” would get more play since it reinforces what a lot of people already believe Taylor to be like, but the laughable, “she wants to keep things private” BS is getting play with more of the mainstream publications. And those publications are actually reporting it seriously, as if it were completely believable. To me, that screams behind the scenes interference from someone invested in selling that angle.

  18. OSTONE says:

    Y’all – if the I love TS tank top, love fest with uncle hiddles in Taymerica, the tour of the world in 2 weeks on TS’ private jet and the love on the rocks and meeting the Hiddle fam doesn’t tell y’all that Tom Hiddleston is also a fameho, I do not want to burst the bubble.
    He willingly participated in the antics and if the backlash is happening, it needs to happen to both of them, not just her.

  19. Lisa says:

    I still want them to get married and produce shiddlebabies

  20. mia girl says:

    Bwahahahaha. This story is hilarious.

    I don’t think they are together anymore because Hiddles came down with a case of the Gyllenhaals.

    Both actors thought they were game and each gleefully jumped head first into Taylorville. Jake had the snugglefest at the apple orchard, Tom had the Tshirt & Rhode Island. Both took Taylor to meet their families.

    And just like Jake, IMO, a few weeks in Tom dropped a giant “oh sh#t, what have I gotten myself into?!? Please stop the world I want to get off!”

    • Algernon says:

      I was going to make this same comment, this is exactly like Jake Gyllenhaal all over again. They’re fine with the whirlwind when it’s new and exciting, but then something switches and suddenly they want to get off the roller coaster. In Jake’s case, I think he legitimately did not like the attention that came with the relationship. In Tom’s case, I suspect he isn’t willing to cater to Taylor while he’s working. And reality sets in.

    • A.Key says:

      Well Jakey boy survived, and is legitimately a great actor and he’s still making some fantastic films. We’ll see if Tom’s image and career can survive and thrive after this.

  21. Tara says:

    I don’t really believe any of this stuff. I have a feeling they are laying low and are going to show up and walk the carpet at the Emmy’s together. But we shall see.

    • shelly* says:

      Because they haven’t been seen together, due to his work commitments the tabloids have decided to fanfiction their romance, firstly trouble in paradise but then the happy ending will be back on, I’m sure of it.

      They may have unveiled the relationship in a stupidly fake looking manner, but that doesn’t mean it is fake, they will both benefit from a red carpet roll out, and it will be glorious.

      • Luca76 says:

        Personally I don’t think they’ll do a red carpet together. If he goes to the Emmys she’ll attend all the pre and post parties but won’t go to the ceremony. We will get plenty of candid photos but no money shot f them on the red carpet.

      • shelly* says:

        You are probably right, leave them wanting more. And I agree, I think they will meet up for the Emmys parties.

        Why wouldn’t they ?

  22. lilacflowers says:

    Sure, Taylor. Because he gave out the information to the paps about which rock you would sit upon on a beach in that pap-infested area of Watch Hill in Westerly, Rhode Island.

    The Fail’s comment section on this is hilarious.

    • MoochieMom says:

      “If you aren’t first, you’re last,” to quote Ricky Bobby. She’s arm candy at the Emmy’s. I’m not sure she can do that. We are leading up to DRAMA ATTENTION at the Emmy’s and when she shows, she will be the show.

  23. SM says:

    Slow clap. Basically they both are calling each other a fame whore. That is one healthy relationship

  24. Jessie says:

    Instead of saying “Bye Felicia”, can we just change it to “Bye Taylor” in this case? Because, seriously…BYE TAYLOR.

  25. browniecakes says:

    Tay is either afraid being made the butt of Kimmel’s jokes and doesn’t want to be present for that OR Tom hasn’t committed to going. This is her pre-emptive strike for not being there.

    • Christin says:

      This may be some type of petty in pink (that’s a typo, but I like it better than ‘pretty’) scenario, where wide-eyed Blaine (Tom) is backing out of the assumed prom date (Emmys).

  26. Chef Grace says:

    Hahahahaha indeed!
    I am still betting my buttery rasher filled baps they do the Two Snake Boogie RC dance off.
    She can bring her new foobs TH ‘required’ her to get and he can wear a new suit and carry his award from the UK telly show to remind one and all, he is AUTHENTIC enough to get the Emmy.
    I am hoping GC leaves us to the fun of all of this too. They just enjoy sucking the fun out of gossip LOL

  27. Mew says:

    She’s making him her next ex. This is it. Congrats Hiddles, this is what you get for messing with Switfy. And a song.

  28. saltandpepper says:

    I think they’re still together, but it’s probably wise if she’s careful, he stands to gain more from this union than she does. There’s something not entirely ‘authentic’ about him. As much as she is branded a fake, he should be too.

  29. Willow says:

    She loves the camera, but he is a grown man who went along and participated in all the stunts. A non thirsty person would have put an end to it with the first stunt. It just backfired on him. Looking at his past antics and interviews I don’t understand why people are surprised.

    • LittlestRoman says:

      I can only speak for myself, but I definitely underestimated the scale of his thirst. I thought he was just awkward and tried too hard to impress – like an overeager theater kid who isn’t quite in on the joke. Of course, now I know it was just a matter of needing a bigger stage on which to unveil the unquenchable thirst.

      • Sixer says:

        This is about the size of it.

        He’s still got nice legs in a suit, though. We’ll always have that.

      • LittlestRoman says:

        Indeed, Sixer! Now, if he could just stand there and look pretty without feeling compelled to open his mouth…

    • delorb says:

      THIS!!!

  30. Lynnie says:

    Nothing is ever simple with her. I get exhausted just reading about it. I wonder how she deals with it

    • Algernon says:

      Some people thrive on drama. Have you ever known one of those? They’re fun in small doses but are xxxxxx-hausting to be around long term.

      • Bonzo says:

        Algernon, she absolutely strikes me as someone who needs drama in her life. No wonder men don’t stick around, even for the private jet, multiple mansion lifestyle she has.

  31. Beebee says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! WHAT.EVER, TAYLOR. If we see through you and the shroud has been removed, you can’t fix it with more bullshit, it just makes things worse.

  32. JenniferJustice says:

    I think Tay Tay self-sabotages before any boyfriend can get sick of her and dump her. She has to be first you see – the dumper v. the dumpee. That’s what happens when you make fools of yourselves as oh so in love when you don’t even know the person. I agree with her that Tom probably is only in love with the idea of being in love with an American Super Star, but the coin has two sides and she is no different. Next time, for the love of God, show some class and sincerity by keeping it a bit more private….from the git. The first photos of them cuddling on the beach still make me nauseous.

  33. M.A.F. says:

    She has made a whole career out of having her life public. I think she is trying to change the narrative because she finally got called-out on it.

    • Dara says:

      I wish her luck with that. I’m all for TayTay trying to grow up and present a more mature image, but if the DM “insider” story is the first move in that direction, it may not have been the right way to go about it. It looks like she is trying to paint herself as a faux victim yet again, and NO ONE is buying it – it’s too soon after the Summer of Receipts to try that move again.

      I blame Hiddles and his thirst as much as I blame her for this mess, and I will never look at him the same way again, but if her team throws him under the famewhore bus all by his lonesome in an effort to rebuild her image, it will not go well.

      • Poisonous Lookalike says:

        @Dara: She’ll need a lot of luck, along with a lot more self-awareness than she’s shown to this point. Now that it’s officially over, it will be very interesting to watch how things unwind… especially if Calvin opens his yob again, which I think is inevitable.

        Re: Hiddles and his thirst. I agree with you on both counts. But what do you think he will/can do to counter her ridiculous narrative?

  34. Dippit says:

    Oh this is the height of hilarity that TayTay’s Advance Break-Up PR Team think they can foreshadow THIS through ‘sources’ with any credibility at all.

    Yes TH was thirsty and desperate when the contract was made, but all the VERY public stage-management was so obviously storyboarded using TS’s special collection of ‘lurve’ glitter pens, and directed by her publicist as per TayTay’s ‘romance’ script.

  35. Chef Grace says:

    I just hope one of her songs is
    ‘I made him feel Authentic.’

  36. Anna nuttall says:

    I bet there will be a new song and video right when they split at the end of this year. Who want to put $50 bucks on?

    • JenniferJustice says:

      ….I tried a fake butt and even got new boobs,
      but still, back to the UK you moved.
      Sure I called the paps out to the beach
      But you were all for it – fame in America to reach
      We were totally posing, but I thought our love on the rocks was real
      Now you want “privacy”? What’s the deal?!

      It was your idea to wear the I heart tank.
      Don’t make it sound like I’m the famewhore skank!
      Stop acting like you’re so above it all.
      You knew I was shallow and my brain is small.
      You were fine with the PR stunts and photo ops
      So, stop already with the “I have real acting chops”

      If you want out, just say it and be done
      But don’t spin it like I was the only thirsty one.
      I’m tired of how you guys all make me feel.
      You signed up too, so what’s the deal?!

  37. Looty says:

    This is the first time their fake-love has made me want to vomit.

  38. paranormalgirl says:

    She’s a private person?

    • popup says:

      Hahaha! I had just stopped laughing when I saw your comment and now I’m back to laughing. This article is amazing. Only a true Taylor stan who bemoans her inability to escape the paps would believe this story. I don’t even know if I can even attribute this one to Taylor’s PR. It’s just too stupid and unbelievable. This is the doing of some desperate “journalist” who spent all of 10 minutes concocting this fiction.

    • Solanacaea (Nighty) says:

      @paranormalgirl In a paranormal universe, she’s extremely private, of course (sorry, but your nickname gave me the idea..)

  39. Dippit says:

    There’s something very odd with the Comments over on DM to this story. Taylor hasn’t paid for her usual squad of shills and sock-puppets to hit the Comments or up/down-votes to debunk it or argue against the ‘Best’ Comments all laughing at this and calling the relationship as fake from the start anyway and saying Taylor is the one to publicise it all.

    She’s definitely trying to lay the ground work for her out from this relationship as used and abused by Tom for profile. But this time she’s between a rock and a hard place as few believed it real to begin with, most thought she was fully in charge of the roll-out, she has too much past form, and few believe in her ‘honesty’ anymore.

    The conflicting PR ‘sources’ on this break-up might be gossip fodder sublime.

    • shelly* says:

      As I said earlier Dippit, I reckon she has seen the newzoid puppet skit on Tayto, and as she strikes me as the sort of person who is a bit thinned skinned about people making jokes about her, she might have fired a warning shot over TH’s bow.

      Authenticate this Tommy darling, or move along.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      The DM comments have been fantastic and a good number point out that he has been the one to keep his private life private while she publicizes every aspect of her life and then writes songs about it so this is as about as credible as a unicorn sighting

      • Bonzo says:

        He wanted his private life private UNTIL banging an international superstar changed his PR agenda. He’s demonstrated his willingness to perform for arranged pap walks and go Instagram official, letting the images do the talking for him.

        ETA: actually, he showed us hints of that change when he did those pap walks with Lizzy ahead of ISTL’s premier at TIFF.

      • Dippit says:

        Lilac, the DM Comments have been odd in their lack of typically obvious Taylor-paid interactions. The lack of up/down-votes too suggest DM is filtering for mass agency-based surge engagement. The Comments seem nearer to a real reflection on jo-punters’ take on things than Taylor’s PR manipulations usually allow. Interesting they are hands-off on a story which has Taylor’s ‘source’ fingerprints all over it. Sounding to see if they can fly this narrative for the break-up/contract end?

        Bonzo – maybe one day we’ll get a reveal on when, why, and brokered by whom, the deal was done. BUT, absolutely, Tom was up for the idea of it; until it misfired into derision so quickly and so spectacularly.

        Shelly – loved that vid. Thank you for pointing us in the right direction.

      • Becky says:

        Bonzo, I was going to say he didn’t seem to want things private when he did the infamous pap walk with Lizzie last year. I remember the comments at the time and some people still thought they had just gone out to dinner. I thought it was obvious he was using their involvement for publicity.

        As far back as 2013 I noticed his obvious PR, but I didn’t think he’d end up doing a full Tom Cruise, i/o couch jumping, put his mum on display and wearing that t-shirt.

  40. Grace says:

    One thing I will say, this line of fanfiction is hilarious. I want MOAR!

  41. Laura says:

    This IS a Trump move. Does Taylor think we all are stupid? This is insulting.

  42. Micki says:

    She should dump him for s.o more private then.

  43. OhDear says:

    [insert Channing Tatum's leaked email to the 22 Jump Street team here]

    Bless Cobra Commander’s heart. Still trying to play the victim.

  44. Cacec says:

    Oh man, I was never on the hate Taylor ship… More like indifferent, but I’m really starting to dislike her. These stories have made her an unlikable person, but this one seals the deal on her being a true narcissist (a la trump). I’ve dealt with narcissists enough to know that they will accuse others if exactly what they’re critiqued for. She’ll gladly see him go down for this joke of a relationship if it protects her image in some way. I don’t think she’s ever going to realize she’s never going to recover her image at this point, even if she were to go on some massive apology tour which she’s incapable of.

  45. Fa says:

    Still no article in gossip cop to deny this story

  46. Abbess Tansy says:

    ‘Tom wants their relationship to be public, even asking Taylor to go to the Emmys with him, but Taylor wants to keep her private life private,’ the source revealed.

    You know I wonder how the reporters can write this stuff with a straight face. I would be cracking up laughing at the keyboard.
    She cannot put the genie back into the bottle, too late for that. People are on to her and her brand.

  47. MI6 says:

    WHOA. This is currently on the front page of the NY Post.
    Somebody’s in serious spin mode…

  48. spidey says:

    If Taylor got together with Tom to get at Calvin and now she is about to possibly throw Tom to the wolves, how do you think she will come out of this?

    • Solanacaea (Nighty) says:

      A poor victim as always… The two of them (evil ones) broke her poor lovely, wonderful, pure heart… And took advantage of her fame, used her… Oh, the drama…

      • spidey says:

        But will people believe the poor victim trope (one of Tom’s words!) wash any more or will she get dragged for it?

    • Poisonous Lookalike says:

      That’s what I’m wondering (and eager to watch unfold), @spidey. I think her victim trope is past its sell-by date for all but the most loyal Taymericans.

  49. Jay (the Canadian one) says:

    I’d like to think this circus of a PR relationship is the reason the James Bond people offered Daniel Craig $150 million. “This is what we have to work with?! Daniel, come back! We’ll do anything!”

  50. Bethie says:

    I’m usually on Taylor’s side of things, but never against Tom Hiddleston. Sorry Taylor. Team Hiddles.

  51. Guesto says:

    Oh this is delicious. :D I bet Tom never factored this type of media coverage into the Tayquation when he embarked so wholeheartedly and fame-whorishly on the TayTo Train!

  52. A.Key says:

    Well he’ll be immortalized in a song which will probably make him happy too. Any kind of exposure is good exposure.

  53. Andrea says:

    Someone commented on the last thread how she may have Borderline Personality Disorder and I counter with maybe she has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It would explain a lot.

    • Miss Melissa says:

      The only disorder she has is complete self-absorption.

      Many other have it as well. Runs rampant in the entertainment industry.

    • popup says:

      I don’t think Taylor has an actual disorder. She’s a narcissist for sure, though. Many people who end up in positions of power, wealth and fame are narcissists. There’s a high correlation between wealth and narcissism. NPD, though, is different and indicates a mental disorder.

  54. Izzy says:

    Please. We see right through you, Snakey. Also, ever since Kim K dropped receipts on your slithery ass, only your die-hard stans believe you anymore.

    If Tom Hiddleston and his people want to shut this down, all they have to do is announce the breakup and say something along the lines of “he couldn’t overcome his doubts about her honesty.” EVERYONE will know exactly what he’s referring to.

  55. Brasileira says:

    “Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha – gasp – hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.”

    My reaction exactly!

  56. Guesty2 says:

    I wouldn’t compare her to trump, and honestly I don’t believe any of this, so I won’t trash her on something that may be totally made up.
    However I will say that I’m sick of her and him.
    The end.

  57. The Original Mia says:

    I hope no one choked on their laughter after reading this article. Because what a load of hogwash. Swifty shy about a relationship? Really? Now come on, sis!

  58. Verdant33 says:

    This is hilarious. Tom has maybe woken up and started to pull away and Taylor sees the writing on the wall. Taylor’s uncomfortable with any attention! She wouldn’t jump at the chance to walk on the red carpet! That is a laugh!
    I believe Tom to be more private on certain personal matters but he went with the flow and tried to have fun. Now that he has gotten to know her…..well. Maybe not such a good idea.
    Or Taylor could be throwing Tom under the bus so that when they do walk the red carpet, the narrative is that he just had to convince and drag her there to show her off… and well she just being the modest and simple country girl that she is, just gave in to it even though Tom might not be with her for the right reasons. Taylor would paint Tom in a bad light to make herself look like the innocent victim. Good thing most people see right through it by now.
    I’m hoping she leaves him alone and maybe there won’t be a song about this brief debacle. I know that is highly unlikely considering her track record though.

  59. deevia says:

    I hope he goes bonker on British passive aggressiveness at Posh level to match her sugary style. Calvin Harris was too in your face but Tom can play with the sweet but snakey facade.

  60. MI6 says:

    It’s very telling that Gossip Cop has not weighed in to deny any of these stories…E! just ran a bit on Tom’s TV Choice Award with zero mention of Toxic Barbie.

        I was hoping someone would start a betting pool! Great way to inject some humor into this mess. Grey Goose Mandrine Vodka for me.

        I say we’re being played with these competing stories and she’s attending. Not sure if she’ll actually walk the RC, but she’ll be clinging to his arm when the winner is announced. I keep hoping he’s learned a lesson with this, but nah he’s still thirsty.

      • MI6 says:

        You can have one even if you don’t, Spidey xo
        Beach Girl, thanks as always for your crack reporting ;)
        I keep wishing we could have an actual party and not just a virtual one. You guys seem like so much fun.

    • Bonzo says:

      You know MI6, the endurance of these PR war chants with nary a word from either team to discredit them is giving weight to the notion that Taylor won’t be there. If that is the case and she is setting up the breakup narrative, I would be look in for an announcement any day now. IF Tom does attend the Emmys, he would want that out there so no one will be asking about her in interviews.

      If they are still together and planning to attend, NO ONE will believe all is well, no matter how lovey dove they are. Everyone will be shouting “FAKE!” if they wait until Emmy night to try and convince the world otherwise.

      • Beach girl says:

        @Bonzo. So what’s your bet? Wine, spirits, etc. I agree somethings up with not getting a response to these competing articles, but our interpretation as to WHY is different.

        Exactly, Bonzo.
        This is NOT a drill.

        And where’s Lilac??

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @MI6, I’ve been listening to a judge drone on about topics completely irrelevant to my case before ruling in my client’s favor. The bar is completely stocked on the veranda and Colin will serve you. The drink machines in the meadow are also fully stocked and are self-serve. The conspiracy gazebo folk will be served by Matthias who is bringing a cart out. It seems our long nightmare may be over and I’ll have my internet husband back. The spin the brat is putting on this is hilarious.

        Sure, Tay, how did the paps know to go to Watch Hill again?

        Let the judge drone as as much as he likes (not that you have a choice!) as long as he comes down on your side – congratulations, we must all celebrate.

        Let us hope that this is true, although I know Sixer will be so disappointed, and that Tom maintains a dignified silence. Definitely a case of silence is golden. Words once spoken, like an arrow from a bow, cannot be recalled. (Socrates, not Spidey!)

      • Sixer says:

        I will be crushed if LEGS takes the high road and goes dignified.

        All my fun will be spoiled.

    If TnT are in the audience, it will be like Christmas came early for Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel is probably just getting fitted for his I Heart TS & TH shirt to wear on the Emmy stage now. She was offended by Fey and Poehler – just wait!
    There is no way Taylor who has never been a plus one, and who cannot laugh at herself will sit smiling uncomfortably all night long for an award she cannot take home. She is not going to the Emmys. This is a smokescreen excuse to get her out of going IF Tom is able to attend.

    • Chef Grace says:

      Oh wow Browniecakes, in all the hilarity of Swifty needs privacy, I forgot JK was hosting.
      oooooh to see that wife beater on Kimmel coupled with his smirk.
      Better than Tiddles riding a Skittle farting unicorn down the beach anyday. :)

    • Bonzo says:

      Excellent points, Brownie. If Tom plans to attend and a) brings Taylor or b) hasn’t announced a breakup, he can expect that tank top to make an appearance at some point.

      • Dippit says:

        If “a” then he can also expect, win or lose, his social media to read many variations of “Tom Hiddleston slithers up the #Emmys #RedCarpet with Taylor Swift 🐍” and such like. If she attends with him (whether as a real couple/still fakin’ it to make it) it’s inevitable.

    • MI6 says:

      All true, but why throw your (alleged) bf under the bus to save face?
      Oh yeah. I forgot who we’re talking about 🐍
      It’s over. Respeat. This is NOT DRILL.
      Can I get an AMEN??

  62. seesittellsit says:

    Outside of some really outstanding political ones on the cover of the New York Daily News (“City to Ford: Drop Dead”) or the New York Post (“Take the FUTrain!”). . . . that is the funniest headline have ever read.

  63. Bella says:

    HAHAHAHAHA!

  64. spittair says:

    The intellectual laziness behind this story is just ridiculous. Hiddles better proceed carefully.

  65. ygsf says:

    People mag online says they have officially broken up!!

  66. Fa says:

    And they split up we knew this was coming

  67. Beach girl says:

    My wifi went down! I’ve got a link
    http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/taylor-swift-tom-hiddleston-split-after-three-months-of-dating-w434036

    Well the betting pool is off. Poo. I’m convinced they actually broke up during that cloak and dagger RI trip. It was really odd.

    • spidey says:

      But we could all celebrate with our nominated drinks, couldn’t we?

    • popup says:

      That must’ve been it, right? He’d be too much of a gentleman to break up over the phone, unlike that other Taylor Swift ex, perhaps? On the heels of the dumb DM story comes the breakup news basically corroborating the DM story, which is so delicious. This breakup is actually more hilarious than the Emmys rollout, so I’m not too sad about it. Goodbye, summer lovin’!

    • Fa says:

      And she met him at the Tarmac he didn’t even got off the plane

  68. Fa says:

    Is not even 3 months, All August he spent in Australia

  69. Lilacflowers says:

    I do believe we need a commemorative Build-a-Bear🍾🐻

  70. browniecakes says:

    If only they had some pictures to remember it by.

    • Bonzo says:

      *snort*

      I can’t wait to see Lainey’s take on this. And Michael K’s.

    • spidey says:

      @ browniecakes Tee hee!

    • Dara says:

      *giggle-snort* Folks, I believe we have our winner for Comment of the Day!

    • MI6 says:

      Comment of the day, Brownie 😅😅

    • Bonzo says:

      DL headline is awesome:

      “Well, At Least We’ll Always Have This Picture Of Tom Hiddleston Internally Screaming His Face Off” from one of the snaps of the dinner they had in Oz. The one with her newly enlarged foobs that were quite distracting.

    • Poisonous Lookalike says:

      Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha—wheeze—hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Thank you for that, @browniecakes.

      I don’t think LEGS will let ThirsTay’s claims pass unchallenged, but the question is how will he respond… and can he surpass Calvin’s efforts? He should try. My birthday is less than a week away, and that would be a perfect gift.

      Hope there’s fixings for Moscow mules on lilac’s veranda. Seems an appropriate drink for some reason.

  71. Fa says:

    Lol give credit to Kaiser by predicting they will break up before the Emmys kiddos

  72. isabel says:

    UPDATE: THEY BROKE UP!

    taylor saying she put the breaks on the bearding because tom wanted to be more public?…..who in their right mind besides swifty fans would believe that??????

  73. Beach girl says:

    @spidey. Yes I believe drinks all around are in order! What will we discuss now? Build a Bear costumes? Tuxedos for the RC?

  74. Kate says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Sorry. I got a bit carried away. But seriously, she’s uncomfortable with his need to “go public”?

    What part of this overexposure tour was he driving?

  75. Dippit says:

    People, US Mag, other outlets – can we really dare to believe…

  76. iralagi says:

    Has Lainey say anything about the latest development of SWOKI? I wonder what she’s gonna say. She’s a hard-core believer of Tiddlesbanging/Hiddleswift/Swoki.
    There’s nothing genuine about this two famewhores, never understand why Lainey believes them.

  77. holly hobby says:

    Well that was fast. However I call bs on her “reasons.” Missy was the one who got him to wear that horrible tank top and do the Tayamerica slide with her girlfriends. If they slid down a lokislike, maybe I’d believe her reasons but it looks like she’s getting the word out first.

    Tommy are you going to put up with that?

    • Lilacflowers says:

      He will probably say nothing.. If the DM comments are any indication, her story is being ridiculed. She has made a reputation for herself, no need for him to respond

      • Jayna says:

        Bingo.

      • Bonzo says:

        I agree. He’ll keep quiet and won’t answer any questions about it. Everyone knows her rep for playing the victim and blaming any breakups on the guy.

        I would say this is a typical rebound relationship but it seems to be a typical Taylor pattern of short-term relationships that fizzle out quickly.

        She is so boringly predictable. Thankfully, she’ll be fading out of Tom’s posts.

  78. Dara says:

    So, someone remind me again why her team pushed the “True Love Forever” story so hard over the summer? Wouldn’t it have been easier, and better for everyone, if they had pumped the brakes early on and used the standard, “we’re spending time together, having fun, and we’ll where it goes”? That way it doesn’t look so ridiculous if the whole thing fizzles out after only a few months.

    • Becky says:

      My guess is it appeals to her young fans. To everyone else it’s unrealistic, fake and a stunt.

    • Kate says:

      Perhaps they thought Tom would be the one to fall in line and be what she wanted, never expecting that he’d have a mind of his own

  79. spidey says:

    The best bit would be if Tom turned up at the Emmy’s with a stunner on his arm. :lol:

    • third ginger says:

      I am 63. I drop in here for the snark and fun. Love lilacflowers and sixer. they mix common sense with the hilarity. I am fond of young Mister H. He reminds me of James Mason. His career will be fine. My dream Emmy date for Tom is his old and dear friend, Gwen Christie. She may well be there as part of GOT.

    • Bonzo says:

      He needs to make that happen.

    • detritus says:

      Who would be best for revenge /storyline purposes?
      her worst enemy or someone, for whatever reason, that she can’t blame or make seem a villain?

      • Kate says:

        Someone whom Ms Swift could never hope to live up to. Someone mature and refined and so comfortable with herself that Taylor won’t even be on her radar screen.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      IF, and that is a big IF, Marvel allows Tom time to attend the Emmys, his date for the evening will be Idris, who was there for the start and there for the end. They’re both in Oz, they’re in the same category. They’ll fly together and walk together. Epic!

    • spidey says:

      And an announcement of a great new film part for him. She really would be p****d off then.

  80. Smd says:

    Let the real spin wars begin! Peach/mango bellinis for all! Waving to MI6, Lilacflowers, Spidey, Beachgirl, Sixer, Kaiser 👐 Very disappointed in no build a bear or an engagement….ah well…

    • MI6 says:

      Heyyyy gurl!!!
      *brandishes mojito*

      • Smd says:

        I need this relationship to continue, I just can’t with the US election abd some current life nonsense. SWOKI or Tiddleswift was such sweet, juicy low lying gossip fruit..SIGH!!# WE NEED A ROMANTIC RECONCILIATION! Someone get the PR script ready please! We must have more candlelight, swooning. romance, expensive yet thoughtful gifts, engagement rumors. And frankly I demand a build a bear or swan for sixer. Let it be written (tweeted), let it be known (instagrammed)!

    • Sixer says:

      *waves*

      He’ll do something funny and plonkerish soon, never you fear.

  81. lisa2 says:

    We have seen many couples that get together and garner a lot of media coverage. There are very few that stay together. Taylor and Tom went so large and out there. Every outing. You have to have something very strong and solid to through all the media and pubic speculations. If you don’t have something lasting then things break. It has been a long time since we saw them actually together. I think after all that Kim/Kanye (You lied) it was just too much. They were together for a short time so not a huge deal.

  82. Jayna says:

    Typical Taylor. Get it out there he was at fault. She’s the one with the set-up shots twice at her vacation home.

    What an embarrassment rolling out this relationship flying all over the place like the romance of the decade and pfff, it’s over. What a joke on both of them, but she’s trying to make him take the fall. They were both loving the attention. Him for a higher profile. Her
    reason was to get back at Calvin.

    No one wants to hear from either one of them the media attention was too great since they created it. But Taylor took it a nasty step further calling him the fame-ho. She has to be the innocent one always.

  83. seesittellsit says:

    Well, damn I had $20 riding on the Emmy RC engagement . . .

    But either way, let’s face it, this was phonier than a $3 bill from Minute One. For, well – reasons.

  84. Beach girl says:

    Kaiser has a new Tom thread.

  85. Margo S. says:

    Are her people for real?! Her career is in the can which is why they are taking this route. We all know that Taylor and her peeps love the personal crap out there. Lmao! What a chump! And I am so glad they broke up. That fake relationship was so dumb.

    • Jayna says:

      Her career isn’t in the can. She has millions of little Swifties salivating over when her next album will come out.

      • graymatters says:

        And I really want to read the lyrics for her next album. To date, she has two ex-boyfriends to diss. Will anyone else step up to give her a record-breaking trifecta?

      • Kate says:

        @graymatters I believe the jig is up for Taylor in the boyfriend department. She’s been exposed for a liar twice now this summer. Calvin Harris didn’t push quite as hard as Kim K, but I think everyone gets the picture.

        I don’t see anyone jumping up for a role in the movie that Taylor seems to think is her life.

  86. Tara says:

    My main takeaway is that Taylor’s PR team just went with the I’m Rubber You’re Glue tactic from their playbook.

  87. Steff says:

    IMO, tom pulled back and Taylor got antsy and needy. Her team probably put out the story, questioning his motives to get a reaction. He probably flipped out, called her and ended it. I love Taylor but she’s in her 20′s. When I look back I was probably needy too at that age. You’re growing… learning who you are and what you want. Taylor comes from a very traditional upbringing. She seems to want the same. Sadly, she won’t find it in the celeb world. It’s a revolving door of heartbreak. Her best bet it to be herself, ease up on the PR reigns, find a nice accountant or lawyer and settle down.

  88. Soror Bro says:

    Never has so much gossip amounted to so little.
