Is Taylor Swift already moving on from her whirlwind romance with actor Tom Hiddleston?
According to a new report, the singer attended a party in The Hamptons over the weekend and during the bash, Swift was photographed kissing oil heir Mike Hess, a Harvard Business School graduate, on the cheek and playfully poking his face.
“Mike Hess was the birthday boy, so [Taylor Swift] made sure he had an amazing night,” Hollywood Life revealed to readers on August 7. “During her performance, she strutted over towards him before laying a quick kiss on his cheek. Then, they can be seen dancing close to each other as he slightly puts his arm around her waist.”

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have been dating since June, but during The Hamptons party, the actor was no where in sight. In fact, he was on the other side of the world in Australia, where he is currently filming scenes for Thor 3, while she was spending time with Hess.
“[Taylor Swift] was in an amazing mood, and super fun all night,” a source revealed to E! News on August 7. “She danced her a** off. At first she didn’t want to perform but then Nelly asked her. Everyone was super into it, the crowd loved it.”
According to the outlet, and a photo shared by model Heidi Klum, Taylor Swift and Mike Hess have been together before. In 2014, they were spotted hanging with Klum, who is currently starring as one of four judges on America’s Got Talent, at a New York Knicks game.
Days ago, a source confirmed Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston had parted ways after spending about a week together in Los Angeles, where they were seen dining at a Santa Monica restaurant.
“Taylor Swift has left Tom [Hiddleston]’s side to oversee her latest lifestyle upgrade,” a source told Hollywood Life last week. “Tom boarded an international flight late last night — presumably back to Australia to continue working on his latest film. Taylor is days away from moving into a new Beverly Hills mansion, blocks away from her old home. She left Tom’s side and stayed in Beverly Hills to manage last minute details before she makes the move final.”

Taylor Swift purchased a new home in Los Angeles for $25 million last year and has reportedly been renovating the 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom property ever since.
“Taylor’s mother and family have been around through the whole process helping with design choices,” the source explained, adding, “Tom will certainly enjoy visiting her in the new home, as it also has a theater to watch his movies, a quiet library, tennis court, pool and lots of gardens.”
Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston went public with their relationship earlier this summer with a series of kissing photos on a Rhode Island beach. However, because of Taylor Swift’s recently-ended relationship with Calvin Harris, who she dated for 15 months, many didn’t take the romance too well — especially after Harris immediately deleted a post about their split being civil.
In addition to Taylor Swift’s relationship drama, the singer has been dealing with tons of bad press due to her ongoing feud with Kanye West. Earlier this year, after West released his single “Famous,” which spoke of his claims of having made Swift famous, the rapper claimed he had gotten the go-ahead from Swift during a phone conversation. Then, months after Swift denied the phone call had happened, via her rep, Kim Kardashian released a video tape of Swift on the phone with her husband.
