WHY CALVIN DUMPED TAYLOR

He Was the One! It’s over! Taylor Swift is crushed af­ter Calvin Har­ris tells her things are mov­ing too fast

In Touch (USA) - - Split news -

The signs were there. On May 30, Calvin Har­ris posted a cryp­tic mes­sage to Snapchat. “F--- it,” the Scot­tish DJ cap­tioned a snap­shot of him­self, sit­ting alone in a car. Fans as­sumed the vul­gar mes­sage was re­fer­ring to the bruises on his head fol­low­ing a scary car crash a week ear­lier — or the fact that he had to can­cel sev­eral shows as he re­cov­ered. They had no idea the post may have been about his girl­friend, Taylor Swift.

Make that ex-girl­friend. Two days later, Calvin, 32, and Taylor, 26, called it quits af­ter 15 months. “He is the one who ended it,” a source tells In Touch ex­clu­sively. “He just didn’t feel like they were on the same page any­more when it came to their re­la­tion­ship. He’s a nor­mal, easy­go­ing guy who would rather stay out of the lime­light — pretty much the ex­act op­po­site of Taylor.” Adds a mu­sic in­sider, “Taylor’s enor­mous team of han­dlers only added to their is­sues. It got to the point where she wasn’t fun to hang out with any­more.”

The singer, who has a his­tory of be­ing un­lucky in love, was caught com­pletely off guard. “They had been talk­ing mar­riage for a while and were even plan­ning to wed this sum­mer,” says a friend of Calvin’s. “But that was part of the prob­lem. He felt like they were rush­ing into things and was con­cerned by how fast Taylor was mov­ing. He had no other op­tion but to say good­bye.”

Taylor was crushed. “When Calvin told her it was over, she was in de­nial,” says another in­sider. She had trou­ble ac­cept­ing it, think­ing he would change his mind, but when he didn’t, she broke

down, the other in­sider says.

Those close to her tried to soften the pain. Taylor’s team at­tempted to spin news of the split in her fa­vor, claim­ing that Calvin, a Grammy win­ner who was named the world’s high­est­paid DJ in 2014 and has a net worth es­ti­mated at $110 mil­lion, was some­how in­tim­i­dated by Taylor’s suc­cess. But sources in­sist that couldn’t be fur­ther from the truth. “Calvin’s the big­gest name in EDM [elec­tronic dance mu­sic] right now,” notes his friend. “Ru­mors that he was in­tim­i­dated by Taylor are laugh­able.”

And in­fu­ri­at­ing to Calvin. “He wanted to keep this breakup clean and ma­ture,” but he feels like it’s start­ing to be­come messy, says the other in­sider. Although Calvin’s friend be­lieves Taylor will not be writ­ing a song about their bit­ter split, the “I Knew You Were Trou­ble” singer is no­to­ri­ous for her juicy breakup songs, and some are won­der­ing if she’s go­ing to try to get the last word.

Noth­ing is stop­ping Calvin from dish­ing, if that’s the path he chooses. A sec­ond source tells In Touch that un­like Tay’s past loves who signed nondis­clo­sure agree­ments, Calvin was ex­empt — mean­ing he’s free to spill all of her se­crets. “Taylor’s ner­vous,” adds the sec­ond source. She shouldn’t be, though. “Calvin says he isn’t the type of guy to kiss and tell.”

Shock­ingly, friends still hold out hope they could get back to­gether. But “Taylor is in­sist­ing that she’s swear­ing off men,” the source says. “She’s tired of be­ing burned by the guys she lets into her life.” She thought Calvin was the one she’d wind up spend­ing her life with, a source close to Taylor adds, “and if she can’t have him, she’s not sure she wants any­one else.” ◼

CAN’T SHAKE IT OFF “Taylor has barely eaten or slept since Calvin ended it,” says a source close to the singer. “Her friends are very wor­ried.”
