Is Tom Hiddleston unhappy with his new girlfriend, Taylor Swift, due to her highly publicized feud with rapper Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian?
Tom Hiddleston and the singer are just weeks into their romance, but according to a report, things between them may soon come to an abrupt end.
“With all the drama between Taylor, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, [Tom Hiddleston]’s thinking, ‘What the hell did I get myself into?'” an insider explained to Hollywood Life on July 18. “He’s never been a combative person, or in such a high-profile romance, so to be in the line of fire like he is, it’s a completely new feeling for him.”
Tom Hiddleston began dating the singer last month just a short time after she split from Calvin Harris, and in the weeks that followed, the couple’s whirlwind romance took them to the U.K., Australia, Italy, and Nashville, Tennessee.
Weeks later, Swift found herself in the middle of scandal after Kardashian shared a video of her talking to West about his controversial track, “Famous,” in which he claims he and Swift could still have sex and suggests he is the one who made her famous. Although Swift’s rep previously denied she had spoken to West about the song, the video proved otherwise, and in the days since the video was shared, the #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty hashtag has continued to be a top trend on Twitter.

“Tom Hiddleston absolutely did not sign up for this. it’s like he’s dating a long-retired hitman whose past has caught up with them,” Twitter user @theshrillest wrote after the video was released.
“I don’t think [Tom Hiddleston] has ever dealt with this much drama before. I could be wrong but pls don’t let him be dragged into this. Leave him be,” added @deanwingmaster.
Before Kardashian’s shocking video was released, Swift was said to be over the moon with Tom Hiddleston.
“Taylor is so thrilled that finally she has a man who seems as proud to be in a relationship with her as she is with him,” a source told Hollywood Life last week. “Usually she’s the one driving it, and sometimes it bites her in the butt.”
“[Tom Hiddleston] steps up and lets people know, ‘Taylor’s my girl and I adore her,'” the source continued. “In most of her previous romances, Taylor felt like the love was unbalanced and that she was one doing the chasing, the gushing, the posing for paparazzi pictures while which ever boyfriend she was with was hiding his face. [Tom Hiddleston], on the other hand, wants to shout it from the rooftops and she loves that!”

Tom Hiddleston has been linked to celebrities in the past, including actress Elizabeth Olsen, whom he reportedly dated briefly last year, but his relationship with Swift has understandably gotten his personal life far more attention than he’s had before. That said, he hasn’t seemed to mind being photographed with Swift, and apparently, that’s one of the many things she loves about the actor.
As Swift continues to face backlash due to her recently exposed conversation with West, Tom Hiddleston is focused on his career as he films Thor 3 in Australia. And while he may be bothered by Swift’s drama, she appears to be continuing with life as usual as she accompanies her beau in Australia, where he is expected to remain for the next several weeks.
