Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have been pictured kissing, hugging and generally getting very cosy together, just a fortnight after she split from Calvin Harris. WHAT IS GOING ON?!
The pictures, published by The Sun newspaper, show what very clearly appears to be 26-year-old Taylor and actor Tom pretty much ticking every romantic pose possible off the New Boyfriend and Girlfriend Checklist™.
Kissing, TICK. Legs wrapped around each other, TICK. Hugging, TICK. Taking romantic selfies, TICK. Holding hands, TICK. Tom giving Taylor his jacket because it's cold, TICK. Spotting the paps clearly hiding behind a rock... er, tick...
The Sun say the pictures were taken on a boulder-filled beach in Rhode Island, near her $20 million (£12 million) mansion in Watch Hill.
"They were all over each other – hugging and kissing – even though there were 20 people coming and going on the beach," an onlooker is quoted as telling the paper. "They looked like any young couple madly in love without a care in the world."
It's said the pair hit it off after THAT infamous little dance off at The Met Gala afterparty on 3rd May this year. And what were they dancing to at the time? None other than Beyoncé's Crazy In Love, of course.
Taylor, shimmying away in her cut-out silver mini dress and newly-chopped bleach-blonde wob, can also be seen challenging the star of The Night Manger to throw some shapes to to T.I's Bring Em Out. Have a peek at this video, uploaded to Instagram by Valentino PR, Carlos Souza.
"I love dancing. Who doesn't?," Tom recently told PA of the night. "It's a weird one [that it went viral]. I haven't actually danced for a long time, but I happened to be dancing at the Met Gala because it was a party.
"I was [at] a table with Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd was playing, and she said, 'The thing about these parties is nobody gets up to dance.' She, as a musician, was like, 'We've got to dance for The Weeknd.' So we got up and danced."
This comes a mere 14 days after news of Taylor's split from Calvin Harris reached our weepy eyes. According to reports at the time, it was Calvin who ended things after around 15 months together, but the breakup was completely amicable.
"This all happened last week. Taylor and Adam had no big blowout fight, but the romance just was not there anymore for them. Adam is the one that ended it. It was all done in a very mature fashion. Taylor is pretty upset but they are still in communication," a source supposedly told E! News.
But yeah... I mean, she doesn't look too upset any more. I suppose kissing actual Tom Hiddleston isn't a bad way to cheer yourself up, after all.
Then, in the most modern breakup move of all time, Calvin broke his silence over the split on Twitter, only to be re-tweeted by Taylor. Casual. He said: "The only truth is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect."
But TWIST. Today, fans noticed he has since deleted and un-followed Taylor AND even her brother Austin, as well as deleting pretty much every social media memory we all three-wheeled on.
AND it looks like Taylor's been deleting hers as well. In fact, if you want to get the full scale of this deletion overload, just look at how many pictures are now NOT showing up in this story:
But this single solitary picture is left. Excuse us while we print it out and frame it for posterity. [Note: if there is no picture of Taylor and Calvin appearing below... it's already too late]
To be fair, Taylor's got a right to move on with whoever she likes, as quickly as she likes. Rumours and 'sources' aside, we don't really know what led to her break-up with Calvin and it could have been brewing for much longer than any of us muggles realise. But whatever happens next, fingers crossed they all come out of it without anyone's hearts getting too battered, because breakups SUCK, whether you're famous or not.
