They most certainly are. Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston were photographed kissing on a Rhode Island beach Wednesday.
Swift just announced her separation from DJ Calvin two weeks ago, a few days after they split. When the ex-boyfriend realized there was a whole event going on on social media after the romantic photos of Swift and Hiddleston were released, he tweeted “Oh boy it’s about to go down” alongside three skull emojis.
But he was the one who ended the relationship, as a source close to the pair told E! News. The Scottish DJ, whose real name is Adam Wiles, decided the romance was absent after 15 months dating. The source added that Taylor was “pretty upset” but that she kept communications with him.
The same source said Taylor had been very supportive after he was involved in a car accident, which caused him to cancel performances while he rested and recovered from injuries. Fans thought everything was OK between the two, given that they celebrated their one-year anniversary on March 6 and shared cute photos on the social media platform.
Swift’s ex-boyfriend was apparently shocked by the pictures of her new relationship
Harris deleted the tweet along with all the pictures of the relationship. He also removed a conciliatory message he tweeted two weeks ago in which he addressed the respective and respectful end of the journey they had been doing together for more than a year.
Seeing his beautiful and successful ex-girlfriend having a fun time with another famous guy seems to have caused a severe impact on Harris. He even unfollowed Taylor Swift and blocked her fans, including her brother, Austin.
Hiddleston is far from a downgrade. The 35-year-old actor is best known for his role of Loki in the Marvel Cinematic. His latest work is in the AMC/BBC One miniseries adaptation of John le Carré’s “The Night Manager.”

It was rumored that he was seeing “I Saw the Light” co-star Elizabeth Olsen in March, but the actress denied those stories and said it was all about “a bunch of strangers saying a bunch of stuff that they don’t know about.” The actor is said to be in the running for the role of James Bond.
Not a very surprising couple alert
The pair were photographed as they approached a rocky area on the beach and the actor put his jacket around his date. But the news that they are most likely dating is not that surprising. What shocked the Internet the most was how quick Taylor allowed herself to go out with someone new.
Hiddleston met the multi-platinum recording artist at the annual Met Ball in New York on May 2. Shortly after midnight, they arrived together at the Met Gala afterparty held at Boom Boom Room at the Standard Hotel in downtown Manhattan.
They were seated next to each other and even took over the dance floor as good pals. The amazing pair attended the pre-Met Gala dinner at Anna Wintour’s home the night before, as reported by Los Angeles Times.

They appeared having a dance-off on an Instagram video as they showed off their moves to Bring Em Out, T.I.’s 2004 hit. The pop star shook her hips and slipped past Hiddleston without daring to go down.
The video was posted by Carlos Souza, jeweler, and Valentino brand ambassador. Another video of Taylor and Tom dancing was featured on the Met’s Snapchat channel that night.
A source who attended the event told US Weekly that they were together all night and appeared to be good friends. Another observer said Sienna Miller joined them on the floor in the afterparty.
When Swift was ready to kick off her Louis Vuitton stilettos, Hiddleston helped her put on her combat boots, as an observer told Us Weekly.
“Tom had to stand up and bang on the bottom of the shoe to get it on,” the same observer said. “Tom got the shoe on Taylor’s foot, and she laughed.”
