Calvin Harris: It's "Hurtful" That Taylor Swift's Team Is "Trying to Make Me Look Bad"

What started as a polite reveal about "This Is What You Came For" soon turned into a war of words.

After a relatively peaceful breakup, things got kind of weird between Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift on Wednesday (July 13) after it was confirmed that Swift co-wrote Harris' smash Rihanna collab "This Is What You Came For." Swift's camp confirmed that she helped Harris pen the song using a pseudonym, and shortly after, Harris also revealed that his ex sang on it, too, while clarifying that he wrote the music, produced and arranged it.

What was a polite reveal soon turned into a war of words that roped in Katy Perry and some clearly hurt feelings on Harris' part. His initial tweets were very complimentary.

Harris said that Swift "sings on a little bit of it too," dubbing his ex an "amazing lyric writer."

Moments later, though, Harris took the gloves off and lashed out at Swift and her team for what he said was the "hurtful" way the news was leaked, lashing out at Taylor (and her team) for trying to "bury" him like she did to "Katy," a seeming reference to the alleged feud between Swift and Katy Perry.

Harris then roped Swift's alleged new beau, actor Tom Hiddleston, into the mix, added that, "I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down."

Clearly stung, Harris tried to end his mini-rant on an up note, writing, "please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you've earned a great one."

At press time it did not appear that Swift had responded and a spokesperson for the singer could not be reached for comment.
