Taylor Swift And Tom Hiddleston Split Update: Selena Gomez Supports BFF, Are New Songs Coming Soon?

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have called it quits on their relationship after just three months.

Although Swift and Hiddleston appeared to have something special between them when they debuted their whirlwind romance in Rhode Island in June, their romance has reportedly fizzled out just as quickly as it began, and now Swift is leaning on friends to get her through the hard times.

Prior to her outing with model Lily Aldridge on Wednesday night, a source spoke out, revealing Taylor Swift had been in touch with her longtime best friend, Selena Gomez, in the days since her split, despite Gomez’s recent announcement that she would be withdrawing from the public eye and her tour due to struggles with anxiety and depression.

“When [Taylor Swift] told Selena about the breakup, the first thing Selena advised Taylor to do was slow down,” a source told Hollywood Life on September 6. “Selena has known about the Taylor and Tom [Hiddleston], 35, split for a while.”

As fans will recall, Taylor Swift’s relationship with Hiddleston came just two weeks after her split from Calvin Harris and in the past, the singer has been known for her habit of jumping from relationship to relationship, although none of them have lasted very long.

“Selena’s advice was to take a break from men and to spend some time enjoying being single,” the source continued.

According to the source, Taylor Swift can distract herself from her split, and the media coverage that has followed, by “focusing her energy in the studio, and dropping a new album before another boyfriend pops up.”

A short while after the report was shared, E! News published an article about Taylor Swift’s potentially upcoming songs. In the past, Taylor Swift hasn’t hesitated to write songs about her relationships, and her time with Hiddleston will likely be no different. However, at this point, a new album has not yet been announced, so fans will have to wait and see whether or not Swift channels her recent romance and breakup into new tracks.

Earlier this week, after Taylor Swift’s split from Tom Hiddleston was confirmed, rumors began swirling claiming the singer dumped the actor after becoming concerned with his alleged desire to be “so public.” However, according to another report, there is no truth to the rumors.

“The reports are wide of the mark and come as news to all Tom’s friends. He grew tired of [Taylor Swift], it wasn’t the other way round,” a source told Heatstreet on September 7.

“Tom drifted from her and it had nothing to do with her being put off by the publicity. It’s more to do with the fact he’s a commitment-phobe who gets bored very easily.”

The source went on to say that Hiddleston’s friends have jokingly referred to his alleged “three month rule,” the point at which the actor grows tired of his relationships.

“Even his sisters affectionately chide him on his lack of relationship staying power,” the source claimed.

In recent weeks, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston had been spending tons of time apart as he continued to film his role in the upcoming film, Thor: Ragnorak, in Australia and she remained in New York City, where she’s been spotted with friends and at the gym. Then, during a recent break in Rhode Island, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston were at odds due to Hiddleston’s focus being on his fitness regime for Thor: Ragnorak.
