He tweeted: "The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end and what remains is a huge amount of love and respect."

Taylor showed her agreement by retweeting his comment.

Various outlets have cited sources claiming to know the reason behind the split, with an insider telling People: "[Calvin] doesn't like to have cameras in his face all the time. He's a private guy."

The couple's split came as a shock to fans, as they'd seemed utterly smitten in public and had celebrated their first anniversary with a romantic holiday in March.

Taylor had publicly thanked Calvin – real name Adam Wiles – while accepting an award in April, saying: "For the first time, I had the most amazing person to come home to when the spotlight went out and when the crowds were all gone. I want to thank my boyfriend Adam for that."

They were introduced by mutual friend Ellie Goulding, who previously told The Sun: "I did play matchmaker, that's true. Calvin is a really great mate and he's so fantastic and Taylor is such a cool person who I love. I thought, 'They're both really awesome and both really tall, they'll be brilliant together!'"
