When your high-profile relationship and even higher-profile split plays out in front of a global audience, you have to expect a certain type of fall-out.
And while there's no doubt Taylor Swift has come out of Tayvin saga a lot worse off than her former boyfriend, Calvin Harris, the Scottish DJ hasn't managed to escape ridicule entirely.
Upon accepting a Future Icon award in Las Vegas this weekend, the 32-year-old star was placed in a fairly awkward position when host Howie Mandel made reference to his world-famous ex-girlfriend.
Cracking the biggest Dad joke of all time, the America's Got Talent judge complimented the DJ's threads, saying: "That’s a nice suit. Who’s your tailor?"
Only delighted with himself and the audience's reaction, Howie then added: "See what I did?"
After laughing off the jibe with a fake chortle you reserve solely for moments like that, Calvin responded: "You got that prepared, you had that one ready."
In spite of Howie's remark, Calvin kept his composure before delivering a speech, and sharing the moment online for Instagram users.
"Thank you Caesars for my Future Icon award!!" he wrote alongside two photos of himself proudly clutching the award.
Nice try, Howie.
