New reports claim that Taylor Swift’s “neediness” during her relationship with Calvin Harris is what caused the DJ to call it quits with the singer, reportedly stressing that he felt too much pressure to do things he didn’t want to do.
According to Star, Calvin and Taylor had been going strong for just over a year, but it wasn’t until Swift made the suggestion for the famous producer to live with her when things slowly but surely began to change between the two.
Harris allegedly felt like his then-girlfriend was becoming too forceful regarding certain matters that she expected Calvin to do for her, one of them being the big move into her New York penthouse.

Sources say that Harris didn’t want to make the move just yet; moving in with one another is a huge step that Calvin just wasn’t ready to make — at least not at the time. He’s constantly out of the country, so to even find the time to have all of his belongings moved into Taylor’s home is a hassle in itself.
“Taylor and Calvin’s breakup is coming after a lengthy back and forth about moving in together,” the source revealed. “She started suggesting they make the move… but the conversation went south because Calvin was hesitant.”
The insider then goes on to suggest that, while the couple had been expressing their love for one another all over social media, Swift seemed to have gotten the impression that the duo wasn’t on the same page as far as their relationship was concerned.
Taylor adored Calvin Harris — she even gushed about him to all of her friends, including Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid. The 32-year-old, however, “didn’t want to hurt her feelings, but he was finding it increasingly difficult to fake being attracted to her.”
Again, everything that the outlet claims is alleged, but it does seem strange that a man who has spent close to 15 months with somebody doesn’t understand why his girlfriend would eventually ask him to move in with her.
The news regarding Taylor’s split from Calvin Harris comes just weeks after it was said that the singer had the plan to marry the DJ and was hopeful to soon to be receiving her engagement ring. With that in mind, and knowing that Harris was nowhere near ready for that kind of commitment, it’s understandable as to why the romance needed to end now rather than later.
Calvin stresses that the twosome are still good friends, writing on his social media page, “The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect,” which Taylor would go on to retweet.
