Taylor Swift kept her mouth shut after Calvin Harris slammed her on Twitter…and it’s all because of her boyfriend, Tom Hiddleston. The actor reportedly kept Tay calm amid the social media attack — here’s how.
Calvin Harris, 32, absolutely went off on Taylor Swift, 26, after it was revealed that she was a songwriter on “This Is What You Came For.” But rather than responding with scathing tweets of her own, the singer said nothing at all, and it was reportedly because her boyfriend, Tom Hiddleston, 35, told her to stay out of it.
“She was hurt and angry that Calvin took it there, but she’s smart enough not to play into it,” an insider told Us Weekly. “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.”
In case you missed it, a new report came out last week claiming that Taylor and Calvin broke up because she was upset after an interview he did regarding “This Is What You Came For.” Even though Tay didn’t originally want the world to know she wrote the song, she was hurt when her then-boyfriend told Ryan Seacrest they had no plans to ever work together…because they already had.
The DJ went on a Twitter rant against his ex, saying she should “focus on her new relationship” instead of worrying about tearing him down. But the big zinger was when he brought up Tay’s feud with Katy Perry — BURN!
Even though the 26-year-old ignored that drama, though, she was right in the middle of another feud just a few days later when Kim Kardashian, 35, released videos of Taylor and Kanye West’s phone calls about the song “Famous.” This time, she didn’t stay completely quiet, and instead released a lengthy statement on Instagram defending herself. What will happen next?!
