Tom Hiddleston was NOT caught “flirting” behind Taylor Swift’s back, despite a report. Gossip Cop can bust the sensational story.

“Tom Hiddleston Flirts With Girls A Day After Taylor Swift Unfollows Him,” blares a headline on the Star website, which tells readers to “watch what he was caught doing on the movie set.” The accompanying story says, “Is Hiddleswift officially over? Many signs point yes, especially after Taylor Swift’s latest move — she officially unfollowed Tom Hiddleston on Instagram on Aug. 21.”

Of course, that’s false. As Gossip Cop previously noted, Swift did NOT unfollow Hiddleston on Instagram. Still, the story goes on, “If the breakup rumors are true, Tom doesn’t look like he’s having a hard time getting attention elsewhere. The 35-year-old actor was caught on the Thor: Ragnarok movie set on Aug. 22 getting flirty with a couple of ladies.”

As proof, the tabloid has a 30-second video of Hiddleston, in his signature Loki wig, talking to a few people, as a crowd is gathered nearby. The actor is seen conversing with two men and two women. Star doesn’t have any idea what was being discussed, as the footage was shot by paparazzi using long-distance lenses.

And yet the magazine is convinced Hiddleston was “flirting” with the girls. By that logic then, he must’ve been “flirting” with the guys, too, because he’s not seen interacting with them any differently. But here’s what’s really going on: Star took a totally innocent sighting of the actor and turned it into a scandalous-sounding story about his relationship with Swift.

It’s just not a true one. See Hiddleston NOT flirting in the video below, which Gossip Cop is only posting to show how ridiculous the tabloid’s story is.
