The celebrity news following the break-up of Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift is that Swift has moved on, but Harris has not. Since the pictures of Swift and Tom Hiddleston have surfaced, celebrity gossip has skyrocketed. Harris reportedly unfollowed Swift on social media accounts and has now responded to a few fan comments. According to UsMagazine.com, he’s been quite vocal saying things like, “I cared too much and then I didn’t care at all. I am a real person remember,” in response to unfollowing her and then refollowing her. The DJ also said Swift “controlled the media and this situation. I had no idea what was going on. So that kind of makes it a lot worse from my perspective.” Unfortunately for the celebrity couple, it looks like there will be some bad blood.

This celebrity news has us questioning what we thought we knew! What are some ways to respond to criticism or questions from family and friends post-split?

Cupid’s Advice:

Break-ups can be messy and awkward, or both. The backlash can be even worse so it’s important to have somebody in your corner. Cupid is here to help you cope:

1. The truth: When asked a specific question about the break-up, answer honestly and hope that your family and friends will understand. If they’re supportive, they’ll show you compassion and give you the space you need to move on. Being vulnerable isn’t easy, but with the right people on your side you’ll be just fine.

2. Keep to yourself: Ignoring or dodging questions and comments that surround your break-up is an option too. Don’t feel forced to answer and respond to every little thing that comes up. Take the space you need to distance yourself from the situation if you’re uncomfortable.

3. Pick one person: Choose someone whether it’s your mom or a gal pal to confide in. Instead of having to deal with a press release worth of people, try sticking to one. You’ll feel better with less attention on you in your time of need.
