In typical ex fashion, Harris' recent social posts have been prominently featuring his fit bod. "I'm just out here getting exactly 15 minutes of sun, it's all you need," Harris said in a new series of shirtless Snaps, in which he advised fans to "use the sun's energy" and "become a better person with the sun on your side."

Not that any of us have experienced feuds as public/explosive as the KanTay Debacle of 2016, but we've all had exes who've played into our personal drama to get to us. On Saturday night, Harris went to J. Lo's 47th birthday party and hung out with Kim Kardashian West, the intrepid investigator who posted the beef-reigniting phone call between Kanye West and Swift.

This can be a harrowing experience, as it forces you to ask: Did they have a thing that you didn't know about?? Harris and the singer Tinashe – who worked together in 2014 – were spotted getting dinner together on Thursday. While their hangout doesn't necessarily mean anything – both artists' reps declined to comment – your ex publicly fraternizing with an old friend (whom you were maybe always secretly jealous of) is a classic move.

Another effective move, which Swift has employed as well, is to post hAwT pics of you and your crew to show how amazing your post-breakup life is. Harris appeared in a sexy photo of him and some friends posing in Speedos, posted by his pal Emil Nava, which sends a clear message of "I'm fine!!" (As do Snapchats of him getting cozy with attractive ladies on a boat in Mexico.)

In a series of now-deleted comments, Harris reportedly said that he was "not sad" about the split, but rather, felt "free." "I've reached a point of genuine curiosity," he allegedly responded to a follower who asked if he was sad. "I'm not sad at all I feel amazing right now."

After news broke that Swift wrote her ex Harris' hit, "This Is What You Came For," Harris took to Twitter to explain his side of the story, while also low-key shouting out Swift's new relationship with Tom Hiddleston. "I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do," he said. "I know you're off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I'm not that guy, sorry. I won't allow it." BURN.
