Massive seismic activity shook celeb-land today: Reports are surfacing that Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have broken up after three months of dating. AHHH.

According to a source speaking to Us Weekly (opens in new tab), Swift began drawing away due to concerns that the Night Manager actor was using her to further his career/James Bond aspirations (opens in new tab).

"She was the one to put the brakes on the relationship," the source said. "Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with. Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection but Tom didn't listen to her concerns when she brought them up." For his part, Hiddleston is "embarrassed that the relationship fizzled out."

However, with some Anonymous Source Quote Language Analysis™, we can see that he/she/it is being careful not to describe the break as permanent. "They get along great and will remain friends, but they just don't see it working romantically right now."

"Right now." "Put the brakes on." WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? When the social media purge (opens in new tab) comes, we'll know, friends. We'll know.
