Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift ‘kept apart by actor’s film commitments’

Tom Hiddleston’s busy filming schedule is apparently getting in the way of his new romance with Taylor Swift.
Showbiz fans were shocked when the British actor and American pop star were pictured enjoying each other’s company in June (16), just weeks after Taylor spilt from superstar DJ Calvin Harris.
Things appeared to move quickly for the new pair, with Tom, 35, hanging out with the singer’s famous pals and Taylor getting to meet her new beau’s parents. However the romance seems to have cooled in recent weeks, with sources blaming Tom’s hectic workload.
“They’ve had a lot of fun together but things have slowed down, largely because Tom is so busy filming Thor: Ragnarok,” an insider told Britain’s Grazia magazine.
While Taylor, 26, enjoyed time with Tom in Australia at the beginning of the Thor shoot, since returning home at the beginning of August (16), the Shake It Off singer has kept a relatively low profile. Sources say this is in direct relation to her feud with Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West, over Kanye’s song Famous. The track contains lyrics about the rapper sleeping with Taylor, and while he insists Taylor gave the song her blessing, the blonde star has vehemently denied she ever approved the use of the word “b**ch”.
Since the fall out, fellow stars have taken sides, including Justin Bieber and Pharrell Williams supporting Kanye.
“Taylor feels like there has been a bullying campaign. And wants to do damage control by taking some time out,” the insider continued. “Even before Tom and Kim, she felt exposed.”
“It’s unlike Taylor to be out of the spotlight for so long. She was stung by the backlash, so she’s carefully planning her next move.”
