[Updated 3 June 2016] It's official – Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are a couple no more. Calvin tweeted "The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect." Taylor retweeted it, too.

Goodbye, Caltay. Taycal. Caylor.

Have you noticed that Taylor Swift has been absent from social media for nearly two weeks now? No cat videos, nothing. She didn't say she's pulling an Ed Sheeran, but she could just be taking a nice clean temporary break from the internet anyway – many of us wish we have that luxury. But if USA Today's reports about her and Scottish DJ Calvin Harris breaking up are true, it might explain the absence.

"Taylor and Adam had no big blowout fight, but the romance just was not there anymore for them," a source told E! News. "Adam is the one that ended it. It was all done in a very mature fashion. Taylor is pretty upset but they are still in communication. Taylor was there for Adam with his accident and supportive."

In early March, the couple celebrated their first anniversary with a messily decorated chocolate cake, a beach vacation and a hilarious home video. It was lovely. Last October, Calvin threatened to sue for defamation if anyone started rumours about he and Taylor breaking up. Not so lovely, but at least they weren't breaking up then.

Going off topic a little bit, Taylor is on Forbes' list of America's wealthiest self-made woman, placing at No.60 with US$250 million. Not that it will get diehard Swifties to stop crying, but this is definitely something worth mentioning – that Taylor Swift is her own woman, with or without a Calvin Harris.

As for the breakup, we won't know for sure this time until one of them talks about it, so for now we'll leave you with the internet's reaction to the end of the world; the end of love as we know it; an inevitable new breakup album.
