Taylor Swift is not “faking” her relationship with Tom Hiddleston, despite a report that questions whether their romance is real. Gossip Cop can confirm the two are legitimately a couple. We’re told all claims alleging they’re not really dating are “silly.”

The first article in this week’s Star magazine questions whether Hiddleston and Swift are “faking it,” and notes that some people are “branding it a faux romance.” After regurgitating how the new couple has been photographed in Rhode Island, Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, England and Italy, the tabloid reports that, as opposed to her last relationship with Calvin Harris, Swift’s new relationship is suspiciously “public,” and that the “Twitterverse has exploded with skepticism.” The magazine even quotes Twitter users who wrote the photos of Hiddleston and the singer “seem so staged,” “This is going to be a nightmare of PR blitz,” and “‘The Bachelorette’ is less staged than Taylor and Tom’s relationship.”

But that’s not all. The publication writes, “While everybody loves a love story, nobody likes to be manipulated.” “The relationship had better turn out to be the real deal or they’re going to be the laughingstock,” a so-called “insider” tells the tabloid.

Gossip Cop is a bit perplexed by this. For starters, why is a magazine asking whether Swift and Hiddleston are “faking” their relationship rather than actually investigating if it’s real or not. Secondly, though related to the first part, why is an outlet that theoretically employees journalists looking to the “Twitterverse” for answers as to whether the singer and the British actor are in a legitimate romance. Shouldn’t the reporters at the outlet be sussing that out? And lastly, how can the publication claim it has an “insider” when the supposed source isn’t sure whether or not Swift’s relationship is the “real deal.” Wouldn’t an actual “insider” know that?

Anyway, as our loyal readers know, Gossip Cop doesn’t publish speculation. We investigate reports to find out what’s fact and what’s fiction. And the only thing that’s “fake” is the Star story. Swift and Hiddleston are 100 percent NOT in a “faux romance.” Simply, the singer is not touring, and Hiddleston had time off before shooting Thor: Ragnarok in Australia, where the couple currently is, and so they’ve enjoyed sharing time together and places that are meaningful to each of them. Still, Gossip Cop checked in with an impeccable source, and we’re told any claims about Swift and Hiddleston “faking it” are “silly” and entirely -unfounded.
