Upon hearing that serial dater Taylor Swift and boyfriend of two months One Direction’s Harry Styles had broken up, a movie quote came to mind.
The Usual Suspects: “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. And like that, poof. He’s gone.”
It sickens me to think that the best line of the best movie of 1995, and overall, one of the best movies of all time (in my head) was triggered in my brain when I heard some news about Swift’s dating life, makes me want to throw things, but oh well, I digress.
So yeah, the boybander was in the pop superstar’s life for a short minute, but now he’s gone and the fake Hailie Mathers Twitter account can now rejoice, because it looks like the breakup is real. Word has it that Swift and Styles had a nasty fight while on a holiday vacay and that’s when they called it quits. More accurately, Swift was the one to put a halt to everything before deciding to fly back home to the States.
Says an insider to the Daily Mail: “They were on holiday and had an almighty row.” The source says that the young and (once) happy couple were visiting the British Virgin Islands sometime after New Year’s Day. They allegedly spend New Year’s Eve together in New York.
So after this supposed fight, it seems that Swift packed up and went home, while Styles hung back and partied with Virgin mogul Richard Branson.
The singer, by the way, does seem to like them young, at least younger than her by several years. Swift herself just turned 23 and Styles and her last boyfriend, Conor Kennedy, were both 18.
Anyhoodle, now all we do is wait for her next broken-hearted hit…
