Amidst the rumors and people joking that a hit Taylor Swift song is in the works, Calvin Harris tweeted, “The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect.” The "22" singer immediately retweeted the post.

Because it’s not official until it’s Instagram official, Demi, 23, and Wilmer, 36, took to their respective accounts to announce their split. “After almost 6 loving and wonderful years together, we have decided to end our relationship,” the joint message said. “This was an incredibly difficult decision for both of us, but we have realized more than anything that we are better as best friends. We will always be supportive of one another. Thank you to everyone who has offered us kindness and support over the years. With only love, Wilmer & Demi.” For fans, the two seemed like a perfect match.

Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority.”
