‘All hell broke loose’ Calvin Harris on the split that led to Hiddleswift

When Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift called it quits earlier this year, the vast majority of us waited for the inevitable fall-out, but for some time, save for a diplomatic tweet on the part of Calvin, there was nothing but radio silence.

Until there wasn't.

As Taylor launched into one of the most talked-about romances of the year with British actor, Tom Hiddleston, the media plagued Calvin for comment on his former girlfriend's new romance.

And, unsurprisingly, as he found himself dragged into the media circus that was the Hiddleswift saga, the Scottish DJ cracked, and called Tay out on Twitter in a move which he says led to all hell breaking loose.

Responding  to Taylor's decision to reveal she co-wrote Rihanna's This Is What You Came For with him, Calvin hit out at her motives.

"I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it," he tweeted at the time.

Reflecting on the fall-out from that decision, Calvin recently told GQ: "When it ended, all hell broke loose. Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure."

"It took me a minute to realise that none of that stuff matter. I’m a positive guy,"  he added.

While acknowledging that break-ups happen all the time, Calvin admitted he didn't anticipate the drama that followed their split.

"For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn’t right so it ended, but all that stuff that happened afterwards…"

Give it a few months and we'll be hearing Tom's version of the saga…
