Our hopes for Taylor Swift and Harry Styles may have been dashed! Several sources are reporting that the country-pop star, 23, has called it quits with the One Direction singer, 18, after the couple had a huge fight while on vacation.
After sharing a well-publicized smooch in Times Square on New Year's Eve, the two singers jetted down to the British Virgin Islands for some rest and relaxation. Unfortunately, the good times didn't last for long: Swift was photographed taking a boat back to the airport, alone, on Jan. 4.
"I can confirm they have split up," a source told the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "They were on holiday and had an almighty row." (Page Six's source also confirmed a break-up.)
Even though Taylor appears to have left in a huff, it didn't ruin Harry's good time. The teen idol stayed in the islands and hung out at billionaire Richard Branson's house, where, according to Business Insider, "he did plenty of partying and was definitely enjoying himself while hanging out with guests."
Swift and Styles' reps have not commented on the break-up reports, but a few words from Taylor may offer a hint: on Jan. 5th, she tweeted the lyric "...'til you put me down," from her song "I Knew You Were Trouble" (which is rumored to be about an earlier rendezvous with Styles). The full lyric: "Flew me to places I'd never been/'til you put me down." Sounds like a vacation gone wrong, indeed.
So now the question is: who should Taylor date next? She doesn't usually wait too long before throwing herself into a new relationship, so she's probably already scoping out candidates. Here are three suggestions to get the ball rolling!
Drake: The 26-year-old rapper seems like a nice guy with just enough of a bad-boy edge to keep a girl interested. Plus, he really needs somebody to help him get over Rihanna.
Prince Harry: Taylor likes British guys named Harry (see: Styles), and she likes guys with impressive family legacies (see: Conor Kennedy). It's a perfect fit!
Taylor's previous high-profile boyfriends include Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and Joe Jonas.
