The superstar, 26, has been dating “The Night Manager” hunk, 35, since June, but they’ve yet to make an official public appearance together.
Tom is keen for them to become a Hollywood power couple but Taylor disagrees, which has caused a rift between them.
She is now becoming increasingly worried that Tom, who has been tipped to replace Daniel Craig as 007, is using the relationship to boost his own profile. An insider said, “Tom wants their relationship to be public, even asking Taylor to go to the Emmys with him, but Taylor wants to keep her private life private. Tom’s need for their relationship to be so public so quickly makes her uncomfortable.”
The source added, “She tried to be OK with it in the beginning but fears he is in love with the idea of her and not falling in love with her for the right reasons. Taylor is an independent young woman and doesn’t feel like she needs a boyfriend to make her feel complete.”
Tom is said to be frustrated with Taylor’s reluctance to appear on a red carpet with him.
The pair have not been photographed together since July after having been seemingly inseparable during the early days of their relationship.
The Sun shocked the showbiz world in June by revealing they had become an item, having met at the star-studded Met Gala in May, where they were snapped together on the dance floor. Taylor was dating superstar DJ Calvin Harris at the time and they splitweeks later.
However, despite the excessive declarations of love, most notably Tom being pictured wearing a “I heart TS” shirt during July 4 weekend celebrations in Taylor’s home state of Rhode Island, cracks are clearly starting to appear.
Reports in the US overnight claimed Tom is sick of being Taylor’s “glorified escort” and fears he’s becoming a “laughingstock” due to Taylor’s reluctance to be seen at a public event together.
She’s never been on a red carpet with a boyfriend in her career and Tom is getting frustrated with her continued reluctance.
