Calvin Harris Says ‘All Hell Broke Loose’ After Taylor Swift Split

The Scottish DJ opens up about the end of his and Swifty's romance - and *that* epic Twitter rant...

Calvin Harris has admitted that ‘all hell broke loose’ after his split from Taylor Swift.

The 32-year-old DJ has kept relatively quiet since he and T-Swizzle called it a day back in June. Well, apart from those Tweets, anyway. But now he’s spoken out.

Things initially seemed to pretty amicable between the pair, with Calvin announcing the news by Tweeting that: ‘What remains [between them] is a huge amount of love and respect.’

However, he later deleted this – and went on a bit of a rant.

This came after Taylor’s rep toldĀ PEOPLE: ‘Taylor Swift wrote [Calv’s song] This Is What You Came For under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.’

To this, he first confirmed: ‘And she sings on a little bit of it too. Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual.’

However, he then continued: ‘I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym.

‘Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though.’


Touching on Tay’s relationship with Tom Hiddleston (which has since come to an end), Calvin said: ‘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 [sic].’

Eep. Very dramatic – and pretty confusing, too.

But Calvin’s now opened up about the situation, telling GQ: ‘It’s very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly.

Taylor Swift recently broke up with Tom Hiddleston

‘The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicised than the relationship itself. When we were together, we were very careful for it not to be a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense. I’m not good at being a celebrity.

Calvin was asked about Taylor at the weekend…

‘But when it ended, all hell broke loose. Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure. It took me a minute to realise that none of that matters. I’m a positive guy.

‘For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn’t right, so it ended, but all of the stuff that happened afterwards…’

We’re glad to hear things have calmed down a bit.
