Well, this changes things!
Page Six is painting a very different picture, and claims that Calvin was actually ring shopping and planning to pop the question. A source close to Calvin told the outlet, "She broke up with him this week."
"She gave a b------ excuse about her career. He was ring shopping," Page Six's source explained.
That's a much different narrative than what had been reported, as People magazine cited sources close to Taylor that claimed Calvin called it quits after being "intimidated" by her success. Their source also added he "would not attend any events where she was being honored, or any award shows unless he was nominated."
His track record of attending events as Taylor's date seems to corroborate this theory. He was absent at the 2016 Grammys in February, where Taylor picked up three trophies. He also wasn't in attendance as Taylor co-chaired the Met Gala in May 2016, or at the BMI Pop Awards when she accepted an award named after her that same month.
People's source insisted his insecurities about Taylor's career caused their downfall. The close friend of Taylor shared with the magazine, "Taylor is an independent young woman, and she realizes it will take a very secure man to handle her success."
But Page Six's sources don't agree with that theory, even going so far as to state that Calvin being "intimidated by her success is a bunch of crap." While one insider claimed that he was ready to propose 15 months into their relationship, another assured the outlet, "He's not intimidated. He's a global success."
There's no denying Calvin has built himself a lucrative career as a DJ, songwriter and record producer, as his net worth is estimated at $110 million. Unfortunately for Calvin, that's less than half of Taylor's net worth, which according to Forbes is around $250 million.
While we don't know which outlet's sources are telling the truth, Calvin attempted to quiet all the rumors on June 2. The musician tweeted, "The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect."
And while Taylor has remained mum on the subject, she did cosign this statement by giving the sentence a retweet.
