Yikes! We couldn’t help but wonder how Taylor Swift felt seeing her two exes Tom Hiddleston and John Mayer at the Emmy Awards at the same time, but it turns out that’s exactly what Emmy producers wanted us to think, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY! Here’s the scoop.
How ironic that Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend John Mayer would just so happen to play in the band at the Emmys Awards on Sept. 18 where Tom Hiddleston was a nominee, just weeks after Tom’s split from TayTay. However, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that irony isn’t to blame, but the Emmys producers sure were!
“It was no accident that Taylor Swift’s ex’s John Mayer and Tom Hiddleston were on-air so close together during the Emmy broadcast,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It was a not-so-subtle ratings trick to keep people talking about the show at the water cooler the next day. Producers wanted to have a little fun at the expense of Taylor and were trolling her a bit.”
So, were the two handsome ex-lovers of the pop star in on the drama-creating plan, or were they made uncomfortable by the stunt. “It was a well thought-out, planned, playful tease of Taylor,” the source revealed. “While John was aware of the plan, Tom was in the dark. Both gentlemen however took it in stride and laughed about it all after it was over.” Well that’s good! It would be really messed up to make Tom uncomfortably on his special night, which would have only added insult to injury after he lost the award for The Night Manager. Glad both dudes are so cool!
