Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston Break Up After 3 Months Together: 'It Was an Amicable Split'
Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston break up months after taking their relationship public in June
“It was an amicable split,” a source tells PEOPLE.
The breakup comes after Swift and Hiddleston haven’t been photographed together in over a month. On July 27, the couple hit up the restaurant Hillstone in Santa Monica for a date night.
Shortly after, the pair were separated by the Pacific Ocean for a spell while the English actor filmed the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok in Australia. Then, PEOPLE last reported on the couple reuniting in mid-August when they “enjoyed a quiet weekend at her Rhode Island home. Taylor sent her plane to pick up Tom before the weekend.”
The relationship between the pop star, 26, and Avengers actor, 35, went public on June 15, when photos of the couple frolicking on the beach in Rhode Island hit the Internet.
What followed was a whirlwind romance: Within weeks, the pair met each other’s parents, celebrated July 4th together at Swift’s annual star-studded bash and jet set around the world, enjoying PDA-filled trips to Italy, Australia and everything in between.
From the beginning, Swift and Hiddleston remained mostly mum about their budding romance – but in July, The Night Manager star did address pop culture conspiracy theorists questioning the authenticity of their relationship.
“Look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy,” Hiddleston told The Hollywood Reporter, finally confirming their relationship. “That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.”
Swift and Hiddleston were first seen getting flirty at the Met Gala in New York in May, after an Instagram video of them dancing together to T.I.’s 2004 hit “Bring ‘Em Out” went viral.
At the time of the Met Gala, Swift was still dating ex Calvin Harris; PEOPLE exclusively broke the news of Swift and Harris’ split on June 1, and multiple sources told PEOPLE there was no cheating involved.
