Taylor Swift has been surrounded by a whole lot of drama recently, but it sounds like her new boyfriend, Tom Hiddleston, isn’t too worried about all the attention surrounding his girlfriend, be it positive or negative.
According to reports, Tom allegedly isn’t fazed by Taylor’s recent feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, nor her drama with ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris, and is standing by her side amid the recent dramas.
“Tom is not annoyed by the negative media attached to Taylor,” an insider close to Hiddleston recently told E! News of how Tom feels about Swift’s bad blood with Kim and Kanye, despite the two only going public with their surprising romance around six weeks ago.
“Tom knew that would come with the course of dating her,” the source continued, adding that Hiddleston “has been supporting her and enjoying the time he’s having with her.”
In the short time since Tom and Taylor went public with their romance, Swift has faced some serious backlash from both Calvin and Kim.
Calvin took serious aim at Swift on social media after it was revealed that she wrote his hit, “This Is What You Came For,” under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg, while a second wave of negative attention washed over Swift after Kardashian leaked footage of her giving approval on Kanye’s controversial track, “Famous,” just days later.
Us Weekly claimed that the negative attention left Swift feeling “flabbergasted,” but confirmed that Tom has been by her side throughout the media storm.
“Tom is really being so supportive and telling her to be calm,” an insider close to Hiddleston admitted of how Tom is helping his girlfriend through the negativity, adding that Taylor has found her recent dramas to be “incredibly hurtful and unnecessary.”
But despite the drama, it sounds like Taylor is staying focused on her romance, and the two appear to be getting pretty serious, despite Taylor only splitting from Calvin mere weeks before she was spotted getting seriously cozy with Hiddleston.
“They’re having a great time and are always laughing,” E! News‘s Taylor Swift source said amid the Kim Kardashian and Kanye West drama, teasing that Tom Hiddleston and Swift could potentially go the distance.
“Taylor and Tom are in love with each other. He told her she is the kind of woman he wants to spend his life with,” the source alleged, adding that Hiddleston has even been inspiring the star’s new music.
“They have gotten very close. She is enjoying the time off from working,” the Hiddleston insider continued. “[Taylor] has been writing during her travels, and Tom has been an inspiration in her music.”
Reports claiming that Tom and Taylor are already getting serious comes as Hiddleston officially spoke out about his romance with Swift for the very first time, telling People during an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con on July 23 that his new relationship with Taylor is completely “authentic.”
“I don’t know, it comes down to being authentic,” Hiddleston told People of the recent intense media attention that’s been surrounding him and Swift amid the Kim and Kanye drama, though he did not mention Taylor by name.
“Everything you do you have to make sure you truly believe in it,” Tom continued, “and as long as you know that, it doesn’t matter what anyone else says about it.”
“The nature of being a public figure is that everyone will have an opinion about anything you do, and as long as you know why you’ve done something and you’ve committed to it with authenticity then you’re okay,” Hiddleston added to People.
