Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have apparently split after just three months together.

Three months?! Feels like way longer, right?

Although the couple hasn't actually confirmed anything, multiple reports across the globe have been quoting inside sources that say Hiddleswift have pulled the plug on their high profile relationship.

Why? Well, we're not quite sure as various outlets have various quotes from various sources, so take your pick! Here's just a few!

Us Weekly

A source told Us Weekly it was all getting a bit too intense and pressurized given the sheer volume of publicity their hooking up initially received. "It was an intense start. No one can keep that kind of momentum going. They get along great and will remain friends, but they just don't see it working romantically right now."


A source simply told People it was an "amicable" decision.

The Sun

Two sources spoke to The Sun, one claiming it was Taylor who ended things as she didn't like Tom's apparent love for the limelight, and another who claimed it was the complete opposite! The Team Taylor insider suggested Taylor didn't want to be a in a power couple as it contradicted her "strong, independent woman" image. The Team Tom source said he was annoyed Taylor wouldn't attend the Emmys with him, particularly when he was so public at events like her July 4th barbecue. "He's humiliated that she's so against it and won't put her tradition of avoiding red carpet events with boyfriends to one side for him on his big night."

E! News

A source told E! News that Taylor wasn't happy with how public the romance had become: "Taylor felt [Tom] wanted to take the relationship to be too public and she was not happy about it and thought it was too much publicity."

Page Six

A source told Page Six that Taylor wanted their romance to be kept private and worried Tom was using it to boost his own profile. "Tom wants their relationship to be public, even asking Taylor to go to the Emmys with him, but Taylor wants to keep her private life private. Tom's need for their relationship to be so public so quickly makes her uncomfortable."

Radar Online

A source told Radar Online it was Tom who gave Taylor a relationship ultimatum, claiming: "Tom is just done with it. It bothers him so much that they've become known as this fauxmance laughing stock."

Taylor and Tom's romance was revealed in June when pictures surfaced on them kissing on the beach outside her Rhode Island home. They were inseparable: she flew to England to meet his family and followed him to Australia where he was filming the new Thor movie. They were pictured all over social media, including one photo alongside Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. There was also *that* barbecue where Tom wore an 'I love TS' t-shirt...

But from the start they were faced with allegations the romance was either purely for publicity or part of some elaborate music video stunt. Weird, right?

Tom denied all that in an interview with Hollywood Reporter in July, saying: "The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy. Thanks for asking. That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt. "
