Pop megastar Taylor Swift and Scottish DJ Calvin Harris dated for 15 months before calling it quits a few weeks ago. While Swift announced their breakup, Harris has, thus far, been staying out of the media spotlight. But, did Calvin Harris talk about Taylor Swift on Instagram? Reportedly, he opened up about the split before quickly deleting the comments on Thursday. Harris' representative did not immediately respond to Romper's request for comment.
According to People, Harris engaged fans in the Instagram conversation after someone asked if he was sad. He responded, "I've reached a point of genuine curiosity," according to screenshots on People. He later added, "I'm not sad at all I feel amazing right now." Recently, Swift has also acted on her "genuine curiosity." She has been romantically linked with British actor Tom Hiddleston, whom she was spotted kissing on a beach in Rhode Island, and more recently, in Nashville, Tennessee, according to the Daily Mail. The first evidence of that budding romance was at the Met Gala, where Swift and Hiddleston shared a dance. Harris and Swift were still dating at the time.
According to Daily Mail, one fan asked Harris directly about that new development. The Instagram user said, "Calvin I know you're jealous of Taylor now because she's moved on and found a new boyfriend." Harris responded cooly, saying he was "not jealous sir, FREE [sic]." Another fan asked about why the celebrity couple split up after such a picture-perfect relationship. Harris said that Swift, "controlled the media and this situation. I had no idea what was going on. So that kind of makes it a lot worse from my perspective." Near the end of the conversation he tried to smooth things over, saying, "I'm not mad and you shouldn't be mad either." He added, "I can do what I want like she can. And does."
Fans first engaged Harris when they noticed he re-followed his ex on Instagram. One fan asked, "so why did unfollow her and refollowed her again her again [sic]?" He responded, "I cared too much and then I didn't care at all. I am a real person remember." That last statement, however, is a bit dubious. The last thing real people do is remind other people that they are real. On that point, an unnamed source told People that Harris did not make the comments. According to Teen Vogue, Harris' representatives are denying he made the comments as well. But, whether it's a hacker or the "real" thing, whoever is behind this account is giving fans the closure they've been looking for.
