It’s been over a month now since Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift broke up and though the young DJ has been able to distract himself with the success of his hit collaboration with Rihanna, This Is What You Came For, the song may have actually sparked the split with Tay!
Though there’s been a lot of back and forth about what REALLY went down during the couple’s relationship, TMZ reports that sources close to the blonde beauty claim she was the creative mind behind Calvin’s most recent hit and it was comments he made when the song dropped that caused trouble!
Apparently, while Taylor and the Brit were still together, they wrote the song and the Shake it Off singer sat down at a piano and recorded a demo on her iPhone. After she sent the clip to Harris who loved it, they did a full demo in the studio together!
However, the insider says that the power couple knew that it was a bad idea to collaborate on a project given their relationship, as the media attention would overshadow the single. As a result, the 26-year-old decided to keep the publishing rights by using the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.
Everything was fine until the song dropped on April 29 when Calvin began to make the rounds promoting the hit and stopped by Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show. While chatting with the 32-year-old, the American Idol alum asked him if he would ever collaborate with his GF to which Harris replied:
“You know we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening though.”
Welp, this was apparently too much for Swift as she was very hurt by his comment and thought that he had taken it too far.
Interestingly enough though, Taylor DOES have the right to keep her ex from performing the song, but hasn’t yet and apparently doesn’t plan to! Awww, way to take the high road — unlike a certain popular Vegas DJ we know…
So why did it take so long for this story to come out? Well, the songstress’ squad was apparently fed up with Calvin talking smack about Tay and believe he should be thanking her for allowing him to use the song. Uhm, that just sounds like you’re asking for trouble.
What do U think about the drama over CH’s collab with RiRi?!
