Rumors are circulating about the current state of Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris’ relationship. It’s been nearly eight weeks since the couple known as “Tayvin” (to their fans) have mentioned each other on social media. That hasn’t stopped tabloids from making up stories about their impending engagement.
Taylor Swift, 25, recently quashed the rumors that claimed she was set to marry Calvin Harris. The “Wildest Dreams” singer let her fans know what she’s really been up to these past few weeks. In a simple tweet, Swift said that she’s just busy performing on her 1989 World Tour. Not like that’s not a big deal already.
“What the press says I’m doing: Buying a Bev Hills mansion, getting married in an English castle. What I’m doing: Playing a show in St. Louis.”
According to a previous report via the International Business Times, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris want to take things in their relationship slowly, even if they’re enamored with each other. Taylor also has fears that she doesn’t want to be seen as “desperate” again in the media. Although they haven’t showed their relationship off as much as they did during the summer, the couple is still together, according to several sources. Taylor is busy traveling and performing on her world tour, as Calvin performs some of his own gigs across the U.S.
“Things are still good but [Taylor and Calvin] are not going as fast as everyone thinks. Those wedding rumors freaked them both out. That is definitely not where they are at. It’s a nice fantasy but the last thing Taylor wants is for Calvin to think she’s desperate for him to put a ring on it. That’s just awkward.”
It was previously rumored that Harris was going to ask Swift’s father permission for her hand in marriage. Then a recent story in the latest issue of OK! Magazine claimed that Swift and Harris wanted to get married and have children as soon as possible. The tabloid also started the rumors that Swift wanted to get married in a castle in Scotland, which led to Swift possibly buying a mansion in Beverly Hills. Gossip Cop also slammed the rumors, claiming that the story was “inaccurate.”
There also have been breakup rumors haunting the couple. With these conflicting reports about Taylor and Calvin’s life, the couple has decided to continue their relationship privately without sharing updates or acknowledging each other on social media, according to another report. And don’t expect to see Taylor and Calvin walking around hand-in-hand anytime soon, because they want to keep their meet ups and dates a secret from the public, as well.
“The attention was getting to be too much for them. They want to take the pressure off and not have everyone’s eyes on them. They’re trying to be more private when they meet up. They realized it was a mistake to share so much on social media – they just want some privacy back.”
Even daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has noticed that “Tayvin” has been quiet on social media lately. During her “Hot Topics” segment on Monday, October 5, the former radio DJ addressed the Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris relationship rumors. Williams also believes that Swift and Harris went too public too quick in their relationship. Swift and Harris first showed off their relationship at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, with a simple hug. Williams then hinted that Swift may be “anal” about everything she does, which is why she wanted to show off her relationship, just like she shows off her “squad” on social media.
Wendy also addressed the fact that Taylor’s fans (aka “Swifties”) may turn on her since they want to know more about her relationship. The singer invited her fans into her world by showing off her fantastic life, friends, and relationship on social media. Now that Taylor is keeping both off of social media, her fans may revolt and want to know more. However, no one would have noticed that Taylor and Calvin’s relationship went under the radar if it weren’t for the media noticing about it.
Hopefully Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are doing just fine, and these reports are all just speculation, as well. Still, it’s strange to suddenly make your relationship private when you went public so soon, without a second thought.
