The split of the celebrity couple- Taylor Swift, 26, and Calvin Harris, 32, was on the headlines in June, and fans were shocked and surprised when the singer moved on quickly with the actor Tom Hiddleston, 35, just after few weeks.
The Love Me Again singer John Newman, 25, the best friend of the handsome Scottish DJ ’s side during the split that later led to a twitter rant after it was said that Taylor had written Calvin’s superhit, This Is What You Came For.
The Sun was told by John on a Sunday newspaper that, “From her side? Yeah, it did get brutal. I’m like Calvin, happy to take a back seat. I like my music to do the talking.
“When I tweeted that, there was a text almost immediately from Calvin. He was like, ‘Down. Now’.
“And then it all came out anyway. No I’m not [friendly with Taylor any more], I don’t agree with what’s gone on … but I shouldn’t comment further. I wouldn’t know her well enough, weirdly. She’s in another world.”
He further continues, “I really like her music so they’ll be great songs either way. But I’ve had uncomplimentary things sung about me by exes. You get on with it.”
He has been diagnosed in 2012 with a brain tumour, which was removed by surgeons then, the tumour has now returned and he revealed The Sun that this would be his last gig before an operation that would happen soon.
On his set, he premiered Save The Last Dance, with regard to health woes, announcing to the crowd: “I’ve not been going through the best of times recently.”
John told the media reports that he’s keen on returning better than ever next year. He mentioned, “As soon as my tumour came back I said, ‘Right, I’m gonna blitz this out, get myself feeling incredible and get the strength of mind to deal with this’.
“If you go into an op like that feeling s*** because you’re eating s*** food and you’re fat and you’re unhappy with your success and you’re down about it, then it’s gonna hit you like a ton of bricks.
