When it comes to the One Direction star, Calvin isn’t sweating him.

“Calvin is not intimidated by Harry one bit,” an inside source EXCLUSIVELY told “ He’s a 6’5″, ripped, 31-year-old man who is also one of the most successful musicians worldwide. He’s completely confident in himself and his relationship with Taylor. He’s certainly not worried about a 21 year old boy bander.”

Woah. Before you think that Calvin is going total macho bro and is about to slam down a protein shake before rushing to the gym to lift, the “Under Control” DJ is quite sensitive towards Taylor’s feelings.

“[Calvin] worries about it Taylor’s emotions. He’s very protective over Taylor now. He knows she gets uncomfortable around Harry because of their romantic past and thinks it’s best [Harry] keep(s) his distance,” the insider told

Aww. That’s so sweet! Granted, Taylor doesn’t really need Calvin to fight her battles, as her “Bad Blood” video shows that Tay can easily handle her own beef. Still, it’s nice to see Calvin to make Taylor’s feelings a priority. He even banned Harry from their BBMA after-party to prevent any awkwardness!

“He didn’t want Harry at their BBMA party because he didn’t want Taylor to feel uncomfortable,” the source said, adding that, “To be fair, Harry isn’t doing anything but being himself. He’s always super polite and kind to Taylor when he sees her.”
