Taylor Swift is reportedly feeling “devastated” over her recent breakup with Calvin Harris.
Fans of the couple were all shocked when news broke that Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris have broken up after 15 months of dating. It was quite unexpected, especially considering that the two recently celebrated their first year anniversary with a tropical vacation in March. And according to Hollywood Life, Taylor Swift was gutted by the split and is clinging to the hope that Calvin will take her back.
“She is devastated over it all and really wishes he would change his mind,” says a source for HL.
What do we know so far about the breakup between Swift and Harris? According to an insider for People, “there was no drama” involved and that “things just don’t work out sometimes.”
Another exclusive report by Hollywood Life, however, said that the reason for the split was because Calvin felt that he was being pressured into getting married to the 26-year-old singer.
“Taylor was starting to pressure Calvin into walking down the aisle and he just felt that he wasn’t ready yet,” said the source.
“He’s still, and always will be, career-focused and doesn’t want to settle down just yet,” the source added. “He envisaged getting married at 35-plus, and wasn’t comfortable talking about getting hitched after just a little over a year of dating.”
In light of these revelations, it’s imperative to note that the split occurred not long after Calvin Harris got injured in a scary car accident on May 20. After the accident, Taylor reportedly rushed to his side and nursed him back to health.
“Calvin was being very coy on how he felt after the accident, he was roughed up and wasn’t feeling good and at first he really kept how bad he was feeling to himself, even softening his feelings to Taylor as well,” said the source. “With that being said, things are getting a lot better and he is starting to feel normal again and it is showing because he has started to work out again and he is getting back to his normal daily activities.”
Calvin released a statement after the accident.
“Thank you so much for your messages and sorry to any disappointment I caused with the show cancellations,” he tweeted on May 27. “I’m feeling lucky and very grateful rn.”
Taylor reportedly became very hands-on in her approach to taking care of Calvin, even going so far as to tell him not to do “anything for the next few days.”
“Taylor has told Calvin that she doesn’t want him doing anything for the next few days, and when she sees him she will be waiting on him hand and foot,” a source told Hollywood Life.
“Calvin doesn’t want a fuss made, but she’s not going to give him any choice in that matter. She will be catering to him for everything he needs, even if that includes driving him around or making him a cup of tea. [Taylor] wants Calvin to make sure he really does take the time off needed to recover from the car crash because he’s always running at a hundred miles an hour and doesn’t know when to stop. Taylor will make sure, this time, that he puts his feet up and doesn’t lift a finger until he’s better.”
Taking all these statements into consideration, it leads one to speculate that Swift may have been too controlling in the days following the car accident, and that it may have led to the breakup.
This, however, runs contrary to Taylor’s statements in her cover story interview with Vogue in May. When asked about her relationship with Calvin, she said that she isn’t in a hurry to get married.
“I’m just taking things as they come,” Swift told Vogue. “I’m in a magical relationship right now. And of course I want it to be ours, and low-key … this is the one thing that’s been mine about my personal life.”
What are your thoughts on the breakup? Do you think there’s any chance of Taylor and Calvin getting back together?
