Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, Calvin Harris, is in recovery after being in a horrific car crash on Friday in Los Angeles. The car crash was bad enough to cancel his next two gigs. Taylor Swift was petrified to learn her boyfriend had been in an accident. According to Hollywood Life, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend was lucky to get out of the accident with just a few scratches, considering how bad the accident was.

Taylor’s boyfriend was riding in an SUV at the time of the accident when a VW Beetle car crossed over the middle line and crashed straight into the SUV. There was a female passenger ejected from the car who is believed to have a broken pelvis. According to TMZ, Swift’s boyfriend suffered several cuts on his face, including a single laceration. When Calvin called Taylor to tell her the news of the accident, she froze on the other end of the phone.
“Taylor was very scared when she got a call from Calvin saying he had been in a terrible accident,” a source revealed to Hollywood Life. “Her first reaction was to ask if he needed her to be with him, but Calvin told her everything was ok and he was just a little shaken up.”
The last thing Calvin wanted to do was upset or trouble Taylor Swift with the news. For this reason, he broke it to her as gently as possible. The source went on to say, “He broke the news to her quite gently because he didn’t want Taylor fretting too much. But she’s a natural worrier and often fears the worst. However, everything was ok in the end and she can be relieved that he came out of the accident relatively unharmed, but for a few cuts.”
Taylor Swift responded to the news of her boyfriend’s accident the way any other girlfriend would. Hollywood Life went on to report that her response to the accident and questioning whether or not her boyfriend needed her to be with him says a lot about the kind of girlfriend she is.
Among the upcoming shows he cancelled included his headlining slot at the Alabama’s Hangout Music Fest.
“Adam’s transport was involved in a collision this evening on the way to the airport. As a result, he will be unable to perform at Omnia tonight. He has been examined by doctors and told to rest for a few days – Calvin HQ.”
TMZ also reported that Taylor Swift’s boyfriend allegedly bolted from the hospital “against medical advice” soon after he had arrived because there were not any available private rooms for him to be in.

The driver of the other vehicle was also taken to the same hospital. The woman ejected from the vehicle was a teenage passenger who was sitting on her boyfriend’s lap at the time of the accident.
Taylor Swift started dating Harris roughly a year ago. To date, she has yet to mention anything about the car crash on her social media accounts. In fact, the last thing Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram was a video of herself having an awkward encounter with a frog while grilling outside with her mother.
“There’s this frog that’s going off,” Swift said as a frog could be heard loudly croaking in the background. “He’s just out there … he doesn’t like it that we’re grilling.”

On Twitter, the last thing Taylor Swift posted was a birthday wish to a friend more than a week ago. “One of my favorite people in the world turns 30 today! I LOVE YOU @lenadunham,” was what Swift said in the tweet.
