The pop-meets-electro-house mashup that was the romance between Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris is no more.
Or so it is reported.
Plenty of fans don't want to believe it, though, and are praying for a denial from the couple.
Amidst the tears shed in Twitter posts, however, there was hope that the split would produce another album from Swift.

“At least,” tweeted one, “Taylor has some new material now.”
Swift had recently given a gushing interview to Vogue about her relationship with the DJ and Armani underwear model, whose non-stage-name is Adam Wiles.
“I'm in a magical relationship right now,” she said to the magazine in April.
Swift, who expertly curates her life for her fans, seemed at times almost uncharacteristically open about her boyfriend, thanking Harris by name at a recent music awards ceremony.
The couple began dating after an introduction by mutual friend and fellow musician Ellie Goulding.
Both Harris, 32, and Swift, 26, are “really tall” and “really awesome,” Goulding told the Daily Mail.
Goulding's prophecy that the pair would be “brilliant” together, however, rang true for a mere 15 months.
Harris put the kibosh on the romance, reported Us Weekly, though an unnamed source said that Swift was “doing OK now.”
The breakup was described as without “drama” by People and was not precipitated by cheating.
Theories as to why Harris and Swift ended include the DJ’s purported unhappiness over Swift’s Met Gala dance with Tom Hiddleston, an actor known for his role as trickster god Loki.
