Taylor Swift has broken up with another guy — but this one is fictional.
Following a Twitter tirade by her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris about the credits for the song “This Is What You Came For” — which the former couple co-wrote — Swift has abandoned “Nils Sjoberg,” the alias she used for the song, and taken proper credit for her part in creating the tune.
The database for music licensing agency BMI now lists Harris and Swift as the composers of the song.
Swift and Harris cowrote it while they were still dating, though Swift, not wishing to publicize her part in the creation, used the songwriting pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.
That was before Swift’s reps confirmed that she and Sjoberg are one in the same, prompting Harris to launch into a rant on social media.
“Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though,” Harris tweeted last week after Swift’s part in the song was revealed.
“I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do,” he went on. “I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it… Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you’ve earned a great one.”
Swift has been on an air-clearing rampage in recent days. In the latest chapter of her years-long back-and-forth with Kanye West, “Shake It Off” singer Swift took aim at West and his wife, Kim Kardashian, on Sunday.
Kardashian, who recently accused Swift of lying about approving the lyrics to West’s song “Famous” — which calls out Swift as a “bitch” — released video of a telephone conversation between Swift and West, purportedly proving that Swift gave her blessing to the lyrics.
That prompted a strong denial from Swift, who accused West and Kardashian of committing “character assassination.”
