While Taylor Swift is in the midst of her second very public breakup of the year, her ex, Calvin Harris, who’s moving on with a new lady of his own, is finally talking about his split from the “Bad Blood” singer. Most of us can relate to the ickiness of a messy breakup, but Calvin claims that when he and Taylor split, “all hell broke loose.” Intense much?

In the October issue of British GQ, the Scottish DJ revealed, “It’s very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly… When we were together, we were very careful for it not to be a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense. I’m not good at being a celebrity.”

But when they split, not only was their now-over relationship thrust into the spotlight, so were the reactions of the two post-breakup. Instagram deleting sprees, not-so-stealthy tweets and leaked deets (like the fact that Taylor was partly responsible for “This Is What You Came For) created the “hell” that Calvin would have rather avoided.

Now that things are calming down for Calvin (especially since Tom Hiddleston has replaced him as Tay’s latest ex), he’s able to look back at the sitch. “For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn’t right, so it ended.”
