Just when Tom Hiddleston thought he escaped the unfathomable hell of dating Taylor Swift, he's pulled right back in.
The cycle of a break-up always includes the inevitable question, "Who broke up with whom?"
It's all very he said/she said, but Hiddleston, for one, is not going to sit back and let people assume it was Swift who ended things.
"The reports are wide of the mark and come as news to all Tom’s friends," a source, who worked with Hiddleston on the 2014 stage production of Coriolanus, told UK's Heat Magazine.
"He grew tired of Taylor, it wasn’t the other way round.
"Tom drifted from her and it had nothing to do with her being put off by the publicity."
Hiddleston, it appears, rather prefers being a singleton.
Also, he might have ADD.
"It’s more to do with the fact he’s a commitment-phobe who gets bored very easily."
People announced Hiddleston and Swift's break-up on September 6th, though no reason for the split was given.
Many were convinced that the set-up was a publicity stunt, put on to keep the two relevant.
In July, a source close to Hiddleston told The Hollywood Gossip that it was, indeed, all for show.
"Tom and Taylor’s relationship was initially set up by Taylor’s PR team after they bumped into each other at Anna Wintour’s house-party," the source explained.
The reason? Swift wasn't making music, but wanted to remain in the spotlight until she released her next album.
"Tom was prepared to go along with it because he believed that he and Taylor would be able to find something in common with each other. At least have some fun together.
"It worked, and whilst he does care about Taylor, he is now beginning to realize that he may have made a mistake after she insisted upon them meeting each other’s parents within the space of twenty four hours."
Yeah...that's a bit much.
"Taylor is practically glued to his side," the source added.
"After only one month of dating, she is talking about moving in with him, getting married, and having children with him."
And just like Heat's source, this one brought up Hiddleston's commitment issues.
"Tom has always had huge commitment issues, so Taylor talking to him about those things, and after such a short amount of time, is really beginning to freak him out."
Another source told Radar Online last month that Hiddleston was sick of being a "glorified escort" for Swift.
“Tom can’t deal with being a laughing stock and has told Taylor he’s done unless there’s a 360-degree change on her part.
“It bothers him so much that they’ve become known as this fauxmance laughing stock.”
Hiddleston will be at this year's Primetime Emmy Awards on September 18th, since he's nominated for his role in the miniseries, The Night Manager.
Meanwhile, Swift will be writing some new songs...
