Calvin Harris has hit back at ex Taylor Swift and confirmed she did contribute to his hit song This Is What You Came For.

Representatives for Taylor today confirmed she penned the DJ's track with Rihanna under the pseudonym, Nils Sjoberg.

And a short time later Calvin took to twitter to slam his ex-girlfriend's behaviour surrounding the messy affair.

He said: "I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym.

"And she sings on a little bit of it too. Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual."

He continued: "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."

And in a clear reference to Taylor's new relationship with actor Tom Hiddlestone, the DJ wrote: "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."

Calvin also referenced Taylor's spat with fellow popstar Katy Perry with another sly dig: "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."

Calvin concluded on a positive note: "God bless everyone have a beautiful day."







Katy Perry responded by sharing a gif of Hilary Clinton pulling a ‘I told you so’ type face.

And if that wasn’t enough she also retweeted one of her own tweets from 2015 that read: “Time, the ultimate truth teller”.


 

Swift's involvement in Calvin and Rihanna's recent hit has long been rumoured, after she was listed as a co-writer on the Wikipedia entry for the track before the entry was changed to Nils Sjoberg - now confirmed to be Taylor's pseudonym.

TMZ has claimed that disagreements over the track were the "breaking point" in Taylor and Calvin's relationship.

Just days afterwards, Taylor caused a media storm at The Met Gala when she was filmed dancing with The Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston, with whom she is now in a relationship.

While Taylor has moved on from Calvin, she has been a lot more generous than the Scottish superstar DJ, and doesn't appear to have any plans to prevent him from performing the song. Calvin famously wrote a song with his ex-girlfriend Rita Ora, and then banned her from performing it after they split.
