It's always a little sad when celebrity couples break up. It's been reported that Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have broken up after about three months together, and there's some mixed feelings among those on social media about their break up...and really, their entire relationship.

Many believe the entire relationship was a scam and either a publicity stunt or Swift is making a music video for a new single that has yet to be released. Buzzfeed and E! Online both detailed how "Hiddleswift" could be a ploy to sell records.

This whole relationship will turn out to be an elaborate piece of performance art, mark my words https://t.co/ed6PxkKznJ— Anita Singh (@anitathetweeter) July 4, 2016
"The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy," Hiddleston told The Hollywood Reporter in July. "That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt." Even though their relationship seemed weirdly public and to be moving extremely fast, many thought that they made a cute couple. As Harper's Bazaar posted, "Tom is quite the catch and Taylor was a lucky girl for nabbing him."
According to some reports, Taylor thought the relationship was moving too fast, and decided to end it. Other media outlets have reported it was an amicable split. Neither party has commented yet, so who knows what the real story is.
Elle magazine created a whole timeline of their short relationship, including all the drama that popped up with Kayne, Kim K and Calvin Harris.
Model and Swift BFF Gigi Hadid did say in an interview that Swift was back in the studio writing music, so at the very least she has a lot to write about.
