American singer/songwriter Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston are apparently not finding time to spend with each other. The couple's busy lifestyle is apparently hindering their relationship.

A source told Britain's Grazia magazine: "They've had a lot of fun together but things have slowed down, largely because Tom is so busy filming Thor: Ragnarok."

"Taylor feels like there has been a bullying campaign. And wants to do damage control by taking some time out," the insider added. "Even before Tom and Kim, she felt exposed."

"It's unlike Taylor to be out of the spotlight for so long. She was stung by the backlash, so she's carefully planning her next move," the source continued.

Reports that Swift and Hiddleston are dating started making rounds after The Sun released photos of the two walking hand-in-hand on a beach, said to be in Rhode Island. Adding on, the Blank Space singer can be seen kissing the actor as well.

Hiddleston had previously expressed his feelings for the Red singer. The Night Manager star told The Hollywood Reporter: "Well, um. How best to put this? The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy. Thanks for asking."

"That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt," he added.
