Calvin Harris was reportedly "ring shopping" when Taylor Swift decided to end their relationship.
The 32-year-old DJ was very much in love with the chart-topping US star when she decided to abruptly end their 15-month romance, despite reports suggesting Calvin was intimidated by her success and that it was his decision to end things.
A source told the New York Post newspaper: "She broke up with him this week. She gave a bulls**t excuse about her career. He was ring shopping."
Another insider also rubbished the suggestion that Calvin was intimidated by the fame and wealth of the 'Blank Space' hitmaker.
The source said: "He's not intimidated. He's a global success."
Meanwhile, it has been reported Calvin ended their relationship because he felt uncomfortable with the amount of attention surrounding the couple.
The Scot is said to have disliked "the hoopla" surrounding their relationship.
The insider explained: "He's super chill and very quiet. He just doesn't like the hoopla ... with the squad and all of that. He doesn't like to have cameras in his face all the time. He's a private guy.
"He very much admires her as a person and what she has been able to do with her career. This is what drew him to her in the first place. They are still friendly."
On the other hand, it has been claimed Calvin will reluctant to commit to a serious relationship at this stage of his life.
A source previously explained: "He was reluctant to make a complete commitment when his life is so crazy... He absolutely adored their time together, but being a devoted boyfriend is difficult to fit in with being the biggest DJ on the planet. He also loved having his own home in Los Angeles and didn't want to move in full time together. He loved his own space."
