Are Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift Heading for Splitsville?


It looks like the time is just about nigh; the time that we will rise from the ashes of our smoldering dashed expectations of Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift’s perfect romance like the phoenix. It appears dear readers, that the inevitable may be at long last (after an epic three to four month relationship) happening. this week, In Touch weekly touched-on a bit of gossip news that those of us who sift through other people’s dirty laundry for a living have long believed to be true; Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston may very well be on the out.

According to In Touch, it appears that after all the perfect relationship posing, after all of the speculating and perfectly-positioned instagram shots from all over the world, Taylor Swift is now faced with the possibility of an actual marriage proposal from Tom Hiddleston, and apparently she has gone and gotten herself an acute case of cold feet.

Taylor Swift a.k.a the queen of relationships has cold feet! After starting a hot and heavy romance with actor Tom Hiddleston shortly after calling it quits with Calvin Harris, a source exclusively reveals to In Touch that after accidentally finding a diamond ring in the Thor actor’s drawer, the singer is now hesitant to accept his hand in marriage.

Apparently In Touch spoke to a “source” who is close to the pair (don’t they always), and spilled the beans of the situation.

She feels bad because she’s the one who originally told Tom she wanted to get married, but now she isn’t sure what she wants. She ruined the whole surprise, which left Tom upset for obvious reasons. But he was also crushed that she was telling him she wanted to wait.”

Apparently (again, according to In Touch) Hiddleston was upset by this news, having been getting nothing but signals that Swift was “the one” since they started dating a few months ago. According to In Touch, Hiddleston’s friends and family are advising him to slow things down, but Tom is having none of it, wanting to press ahead with marriage.

He gave her an ultimatum about getting engaged. She’s now telling everyone she’s made a ‘decision to make a decision’ by the end of August. She knows she either has to get engaged or leave Tom.AY1

Don’t you just love these Hollywood dramas? “Get engaged or leave Tom”…as if those are her only two options. There’s absolutely no reason that these two couldn’t just take their feet off of the gas pedal of the extremely fast relationship car that they have been driving for the last few months and no need to get all dramatic and end things just because you completely misplayed your hands at the rolling-out of this relationship. And let’s be real here for a minute, they really did get that wrong, didn’t they? Like, big-time.

After reading the In Touch story, you cannot help but wonder if it isn’t Swift, the “Queen of the Woe is Me Relationship,” who is trying to put her foot on the brakes. After all, it was her signature brand of social media publicity that really took the whole Twiddles relationship to the next level almost immediately after they went public. I think there is no denying that this level of exposure – the staged photo shoots, the round-the-world flights on her private jet – this level of exposure was actually quite detrimental to the public image of Twiddles. Has it now gotten to the point that Swift is having to make a Sophie’s Choice between her very obvious love of her career and business interests versus her affection for Hiddleston, formerly known as “The Thinking Woman’s Pin-up Boy?” Unfortunately for Tom, more and more, it’s looking like the answer to that question may actually be yes.


Of all of the stories that have surfaced around Twiddles in the last few months, this is the one that I probably believe the most. The lightning-fast speed at which this famous pair raced-through the early phases of their relationship, that bit where everything is new and the shine is still very much on the apple, was a source of consternation for any and all of us who have ever experienced naive young love. For all of the glorious effort and stage-directing and wardrobe-changing that went on to try and create the perfect Swift/Hiddleston pictures cape, it might seem to some that Ms. Swift really may have only been interested in a boyfriend for Instagram purposes. Of course, Tom could always take a page out of Swift’s book and write a heartbroken breakup song about it.
