Taylor and Tom’s break-up comes after a whirlwind romance and a slew of PDAs around the world, including a much-publicised stopover to Australia.
Taylor, 26, and Tom, 35, announced their ‘coupling’ with steamy pics on a Rhode Island beach in June, which spawned conjecture that the hook-up was little more than a publicity stunt.
Taylor wasn’t saying anything, or posting pics on her Instagram account to support the romance, but in July Tom addressed 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.”
When it came time for Tom to start filming Thor: Ragnarok on the Gold Coast, Taylor followed him Down Under, spending two weeks in Broadbeach, leaving her penthouse only for the occasional dinner date and visit to a children’s hospital.
Although they were spotted walking to a gym together shortly after their return to the US, Tom and Taylor haven’t been photographed together since.
Tom came back to Queensland to film the rest of Thor, while Taylor has kept a low profile in the US.
Normally a prolific Instagrammer, Taylor only surfaced on social media to wish four members of her infamous squad (Selena Gomez, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and Blake Lively) their respective “happy birthdays”.
Meanwhile, it appears that Taylor’s ex Calvin Harris isn’t waiting around for a reconciliation.
The DJ was recently spotted out in the arms of his rumoured new girlfriend, stunning Mexican actress and model Eiza Gonzalez.
