Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston are reported to have split after three months of dating.
The singer and actor are said to have called it quits after a whirlwind romance as Taylor wasn't happy with Tom's desire to make their relationship so public.
A source told Us Weekly: "She was the one to put the brakes on the relationship. Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with.
"Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection but Tom didn't listen to her concerns when she brought them up."
The source added Tom was feeling "embarrassed" by the breakup.
Reports have been circulating for some time that all was not well between the pair, who haven't been pictured together since late July.
"Tom wants their relationship to be public, even asking Taylor to go to the Emmys with him, but Taylor wants to keep her private life private," a source told Dailymail.com.
They added: "Tom's need for their relationship to be so public so quickly makes her uncomfortable. She tried to be OK with it in the beginning but fears he is in love with the idea of her and not falling in love with her for the right reasons."
