Taylor Swift + Harry Styles Break Up
Let the songwriting commence. It looks like she really did know he was trouble when he walked in…
…Word is that Taylor Swift and One Direction‘s Harry Styles are have broken up just a week after sharing a very public New Year’s Eve kiss in Times Square. Multiple sources are claiming that the duo is kaput after a blow up (or a row, as they say in the U.K.) while in the British Virgin Islands.
A Page Six source confirmed what we already knew: that the twosome flew to Virgin Gorda on Jan. 1. But a mere three days later, Swift bolted on an early-morning flight. She was pictured looking bummed out as she caught a boat to the airport on Jan. 4. Perhaps she was sad to be pulled away from her man? It’s telling that Styles didn’t accompany his “missus” to the airport. So something must be rotten in the state of Haylor.
She has remained mum on Twitter, only to post this self-referential message, which is a twist on the lyrics of her latest single ‘I Knew You Were Trouble.’
…’til you put me down.

Styles wasn’t nursing any emotional wounds after T. Swizzle left, as he hit up moneybags Richard Branson’s private resort on Necker Island. He was photographed in a hot tub and hanging out with female fans. In his defense, though, Styles looks to be mingling with some older people, and mostly dudes, in the hot tub. But then again, Styles, 18, has shown a predilection for older women aka cougars. Heck, even Swift is five years older at 23.
A source told Business Inisder that “Richard Branson heard Harry was staying nearby so invited him to come check out Necker. So when Taylor left for the States, Harry went to Branson’s island for the day to let off some steam.”
Styles was only on Necker briefly and headed back to Gorda, but his stay was productive. “He did plenty of partying and was definitely enjoying himself while hanging out with guests. He returned to Virgin Gorda in the early morning hours looking like he had a raucous night,” the BI source said.
The 1Der is already back in the U.K.
If the couple is indeed over, then expect several songs where she mines this heartbreak on the follow up to ‘Red.’ It’s worth noting that maybe Styles and Swift had to part ways on their vacation due to business commitments. They are two of the most popular pop stars out there, you know? We’re just playing devil’s advocate and considering all sides of the story.
Or maybe T. Swizzle is penning songs while her face is buried in a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Maybe Hazza is hanging out with other girls to help him numb the pain.
Maybe they’ll get back together. Or maybe they’ll never get back together, like, ever.
