Taylor Swift was a goddess at the Met Gala on May 2, but we have to admit we were a little disappointed to see her walk the glamorous carpet sans-boyfriend Calvin Harris. On May 3, a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why the DJ sat it out. Here’s the scoop!
Taylor Swift, 26, went solo to the Met Gala on May 2, with hunky boyfriend Calvin Harris, 32, nowhere in sight on the glitzy evening. On May 3, a source gave HollywoodLife.com the EXCLUSIVE reason why he decided to skip the fun, leaving TayTay to walk the fabulous red carpet all on her own. We have all the details, right here.
“Taylor Swift didn’t take boyfriend Calvin Harris to the Met Gala because he is actually a really shy guy and does not like all the attention they get when they are together,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Taylor is really in love with him and invites him everywhere but he always politely declines all of the glamorous events and award shows.”
It turns out that Calvin just likes to stay low-key with his relationship. “He rarely steps on a carpet with her and instead prefers to keep their relationship private,” the insider continued. “All the attention they get when they step out together freaks him out and he can never get used to it. He does not like to advertise their love.”
However, that means that Taylor is forced to go to major events like the Met Gala alone. So, is she okay with that or does it bother her? “Taylor loves Calvin so she obliges with all of his wishes and if that means going to events like the Met Gala alone, that is cool with her,” the source continued. “They are both really happy together.”
