Katy Perry is rumoured to be dating Calvin Harris. The two got reportedly close after the Roar hitmaker teamed up with Taylor Swift's former boyfriend to record a song for his upcoming album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol 1.

A source told Radar Online: "At first Katy and Calvin were strictly professional. But then Katy brought up Taylor, and Calvin was more than happy to vent. He poured his heart out, and she goaded him on!"

The two discussed "how annoying it is that Taylor is always made to be a victim. They both agreed that she's a total fake."

The insider shared that Perry "planned to strike when the timing was right. They genuinely have a lot in common. It's icing on the cake for Katy that she can drop this bomb on Taylor. There's only one goal for Katy now, and that's for a romance with Calvin to go public."

The Red singer and Perry were best friends for a long time before things got bad between the two. In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Swift revealed that the song Bad Blood from 1989, is about a former friend. The two apparently fought over backup dancers.

Perry took a dig at Swift during the 2015 Super Bowl half-time show, which took place on 1 February at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona. During the performance, the Rise singer's backup dancers wore high-waist polka dot bikinis, something similar to what Swift had worn while holidaying with Conor Kennedy on the shores of Hyannis Port, Massachusetts in 2012.

In 2016, the 32-year-old singer said she will collaborate with the Bad Blood hitmaker if she apologises. While answering questions during a Twitter Q&A session, Perry's fan asked: "will you collab with Taylor swift?"

Perry replied: "if she says sorry, sure!"
