Just hours after Taylor Swift pulled the pin on her relationship with Tom Hiddleston because she felt ‘uncomfortable’ with his need for publicity, her ex Calvin Harris has spoken out.
Speaking to GQ magazine at the annual Men Of The Year Awards ceremony earlier this week, he explained that the couple attempted to avoid a ‘media circus’ throughout the romance, yet ‘suffered the opposite’ during their split.
Harris had only been separated from Swift for two weeks when she became public with Hiddleston and he chose to speak out just after Swift and Hiddleston’s three-month relationship had come to an end.
‘It was completely the wrong instinct. I was protecting what I see as my one talent in the world being belittled,” he said.
‘It felt like things were piling on top of me and that was when I snapped. I’m not good at being a celebrity, but when it ended, all hell broke loose.
‘It clearly wasn’t right, so it ended, but all the stuff that happened afterwards.’
‘I feel at 32 I’m nearing the end. Just kidding. This week ten years ago was when I left Marks and Spencer Simply food in Clapham South where I carried out such tasks as date-rotating sandwiches and moving the salmon.
‘I’d like to dedicate this to my manager Mark Gillespie for being a fantastic man. We’ve been through a lot and discovered a lot this year,’ as he referenced the furore surrounding his split from Taylor.’
