Calvin Harris has broken his silence on his split from Taylor Swift. Following new reports that the couple's 15-month relationship ended because he was 'jealous' of the superstar singer's success, the Scottish DJ took to Twitter to clear the air. 'The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect,' he stated.
While initial reports cited an amicable split sans 'drama,' it was later claimed that Calvin just couldn't handle the singer's superstar status, a source close to Taylor told People magazine.
Though Harris is a star by anyone's standards - in 2015 he topped the highest-paid DJs in the world list with $66million - the insider says he was threatened by her endless accolades.
She reportedly made $100million in 2015.
Moreover, The Sun reports that the pair wanted 'different paths', adding that 'she ended her relationship with the musician because he would not commit to marriage and kids.'
The paper adds that she wanted a long-term future, including living together and even starting a family.
While sources told TMZ, Calvin enjoyed their relationship initially because they both agreed to keep it private.
But later in the relationship the constant glare of the limelight made him uncomfortable as he disliked the unwanted attention.
The former lovebirds were last photographed on May 20, embracing each other as they returned from their Caribbean getaway.
Despite the initial heart break, the source is certain Taylor has put on a brave face: 'Taylor is an independent young woman, and she realizes it will take a very secure man to handle her success.'
The source said: 'Their age difference might not be significant for many couples, but for them it was part of the problem too. Taylor somewhat lacks real-life experience.'
It was further claimed that I Need Your Love artist Calvin, whose real name is Adam Wiles, couldn't meet Taylor's demands. 'Taylor was really disappointed in Calvin and felt like he wasn't there for her. ?Daily Mail
