While we were all so shocked about Taylor Swift and Drake getting cozy together at his epic 30th birthday bash on Oct. 23, there’s one person who was even more caught off guard. Tay’s ex, Tom Hiddleston, was BEYOND surprised about them allegedly flirting, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. We have the scoop, here.
A jealous guy? Tom Hiddleston, 35, was just as taken aback as we all were after the news broke about his ex Taylor Swift, 26, cheeking with Drake, 30, at his birthday celebration in Los Angeles. “Tom is shocked at the news that Taylor was flirting with Drake at his birthday party,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “When Tom heard that Taylor and Drake were close at the party, his jaw dropped in surprise. Taylor has always had a type of guy she was attracted to and Tom was taken back that she could be into a guy so opposite of him. Tom is in a bit of denial about the thought that Taylor and Drake could be a new couple. Although Tom may wish the best for Taylor, he just doesn’t want to believe it and couldn’t see that one working out.”
As we told you exclusively on Oct. 25, “Drake was cozy with Taylor all night long. They were all up on each other — no kissing — but touching each and other and cheeking,” our insider told us. We immediately wondered whether Drizzy was whispering sweet nothings into the “Bad Blood” singer’s ear all night, or if they were keeping it professional and taking about doing a duet together. A source close to Taylor insists the two are just friends, so for now we can only hope that they’ll release an amazing song together!
Tom and Taylor dated for three months before splitting up in Sept. 2016. The “Shake It Off” singer was actually the one who called it quits, according to Us Weekly, which claimed that Tay was uncomfortable with how public Tom wanted their relationship to be. Tom being so shocked by Tay’s closeness with Drake just makes us miss Hiddleswift that much more.
