Taylor Swift isn’t having a good PR month at all. She’s been dealing with her ongoing feud with super couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, and now Taylor’s ex, Calvin Harris, is threatening to make her life even worse. According to Hollywood Life, Harris is “not backing down,” no matter what Taylor says, and he’s even willing to get mean by leaking some “dirt on her” if the “Bad Blood” singer pushes him too far.
Taylor, 26, and Calvin, 32, seemed to have worked it out after their breakup, which was supposed to be an “amicable split,” but something went wrong and the friendship is “a thing of the past.” Calvin released a new song, “This Is What You Came For,” and Taylor accused him of stealing it.
On top of that, Harris sent some “angry tweets” that targeted the “Bad Blood” singer and may have included a hidden message or two. According to an article in In Touch Weekly, Harris brought up the feud between Taylor and Katy Perry, the subject of “Bad Blood.” He “called out the feud” and accused Taylor of looking for someone else to bury since she’s off tour and bored.
“I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it.”
There’s a lot of speculation that Calvin’s tweet “should serve as a big warning” to Swift that he won’t hold back if she attacks him, and the “ETC” is part of the warning that Calvin is more than willing “to expose” his ex and “destroy her.”
That sounds similar to the trouble between Swift and the Kardashian-Wests. Kim, 35, and West, 39 are “teaming up to expose Taylor,” and even Kendall Jenner has joined in to support her big sis, Kim, against her sometime friend Taylor.
Fans are wondering what Calvin might know about Taylor that would make her want to keep out of his way. It’s not even clear that Harris actually has any plans to do harm, but there’s definitely something going on behind the scenes between Taylor and Calvin.
Swift accused him of stealing the “This Is What You Came For” hit because, as it turns out, she was actually a co-writer. That’s a little secret the two took “mutual” care to hide for as long as they could. If neither Harris nor Swift wanted to make that public when the song dropped, why would Taylor go off on him afterwards with accusations of theft?
Some fans think that it’s all a stunt to give Taylor more feminist cred and to make Calvin look bad.
Taylor’s rep is suffering a lot and some people are only too glad to see the “Better Than Revenge” singer come under fire. Twitter user Jabberwocky said they’ve been waiting for someone to call out Swift and suggests that Louis Tomlinson might be next.
In the meantime, Taylor herself seems to have decided to enjoy life more than to worry about her enemies. Taylor and Tom Hiddleston are taking some down time in Australia, and according to Hollywood Life, Us Weekly reports that Tom is “kept Tay calm” and helped her stay quiet in the face of the attacks. An insider dished to the celeb mag about how Taylor and Tom were coping.
“She was hurt and angry that Calvin took it there, but she’s smart enough not to play into it. But she’s smart enough not to play into it. She did the only thing she could do and that was to be the bigger person and let it go.”
It’s possible Calvin really does have some dirt on Taylor that she won’t be able to ignore. What do you think? Will Calvin try to destroy Taylor, or will he cool down and leave her alone?
