Something Weird Is Going On With Hiddleswift Since The Kimye Feud

For starters, they went from being photographed 24 times in three weeks to just once since the fallout happened.

You'll probably be aware of the megastar coupling that is Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston.

News of their romance broke on the front page of a national newspaper.

WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's romance sensationally revealed

And from that point forward, they were everywhere – and I mean that literally.

They've spent time in LA, New York, Nashville, Rhode Island, the UK, Australia, and Italy.

Everything was going well! Tom had confirmed that the relationship wasn't for publicity! She'd met his mum!

You couldn't go online without seeing photos of them together. In fact, within just three weeks of dating they'd been papped a staggering 24 times. TWENTY-FOUR.

And perhaps the most iconic moment from those few weeks was Taylor's 4th of July party – in which Tom expressed his actual LOVE for his girlfriend of two weeks.

The whole thing led to speculation that all was not what it seemed – and that Hiddleswift was a piece of performance art for a music video, but that's a whole other story.

But then something happened. Specifically, someone by the name of Kim Kardashian went to town on Taylor. An entire episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was dedicated to the fallout between Kim, Kanye West, and Taylor earlier in the year.


By this point you'll be well aware of the details.

And after the damning episode aired, Kim released video footage in which Taylor approves the lyrics in Kanye's song that she publicly denounced.

After the release of the footage, Taylor wasn't photographed for FIVE whole days – until she was snapped leaving the gym.

And Hiddleswift have been photographed just twice in the past two weeks. Before the Kimye feud kicked in, they were papped multiple times per day.

Such as in these three photos, taken on the same day during their trip to the UK.

It's also interesting that there seems to be a new strategy, where stories about the pair seep into the media – but without Hiddleswift actually being seen together.

For example, there was this article that claimed Tom had used her private jet, and another about him using her driver. There were also these photographs of him collecting a takeaway, with an accompanying article suggesting it was for him and Taylor to share. There were photographs of him on both occasions, but not of Taylor.

And this weekend, an image of someone who looks very like Taylor began doing the rounds on Facebook, with the person who took the image claiming Taylor was at the restaurant with Tom, despite him not being in the photo.

The image was shared on a private page, but was accompanied by this detailed caption: "Sitting at the table next to Swifty and Loki but I can’t take a pic because the host only sat us here after making us promise no pics. She’s been rubbing his leg under the table, a few kisses. Seems legit. She’s very beautiful."

Some fans are speculating whether these stories and photos are ~ploys~ keep the pair in the public consciousness without overexposing them in the wake of SnapchatGate.

But, yknow, none of us are detectives, so let's take all of this with a pinch of salt.

Then came a People exclusive, published last Thursday, about a date the pair had last Saturday. There were however, no photos.

But last Friday, E! published exclusive images of the date – almost a week after it occurred.


All of which is confusing. Why was the story broken into two exclusives? And why were they with two different outlets? AND WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG FOR THE PICTURES TO APPEAR?

All in all, the change in tack is very ~mysterious~ – are they deliberately lying low in the wake of the Kimye fallout? Or are they just sick of the attention on their relationship? Whatever the case, but let's just hope all is well in camp Hiddleswift.
