It seems like only yesterday they were so in love, together on a picturesque pier, wearing corresponding foolishly-in-love T-shirts, but, as is true of all living things, love is dead. According to US Weekly, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have broken up after three glorious months together — ah what a cruel prank to be pulled on such a (fictional) prankster! And what was the cause of the rift between the two passionate lovers? Tom wanted to get more public with it — Facebook official! But Taylor clearly felt this was more of a low-key thing. (GET IT?!)

“Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with,” an insider told the magazine.

“Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection but Tom didn’t listen to her concerns when she brought them up,” the source said.

So that “I heart TS” was completely in earnest, then? Huh. Who knew? Anyway, I suppose these are the trappings of dating when you’re a famous person. When you’re a nobody, you can be seeing someone for three months, not know their parents’ names, and drop them like a bad habit, but when you’re a celeb, you two are practically married with everyone in your business. Ah well, time heals all wounds and soon enough these too. This was such a cup of coffee, Tom might not even get a whole song, maybe half a bar. For now, let’s just remember the good times, while we can.
