New York: When Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris - two of the biggest names in music - split up, they tried to keep their breakup amicable. No longer.

Calvin on Wednesday denounced his ex-girlfriend as a bully after it was revealed that she co-wrote his recent hit This Is What You Came For, which features Rihanna on vocals.

Alluding to Taylor's blossoming romance with English actor Tom Hiddleston, Calvin Harris tweeted:
 
 
 

He also hit a potential sore spot by referring to Taylor's famed 'bad blood' with fellow US pop superstar Katy Perry.
 
 

This Is What You Came For, featuring Calvin's signature house music sound with a tropical touch, was credited as written by him with Nils Sjoberg.

Several celebrity news outlets quoted Taylor's representatives as saying she actually co-wrote the song but did not want to be identified so their relationship would not overshadow the song.

The song may have triggered the break-up, gossip site TMZ said, as Taylor became angry when Calvin told an interviewer he had never discussed collaborating with his then-girlfriend.

They announced their break-up several days later. Calvin appeared polite at the time, saying "a huge amount of love and respect" remained between them.

Taylor has been spotted around the world with Tom in the past month. The theater actor went on to appear in Marvel Comics films such as Thor and The Avengers as well as Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.

As for the real Nils Sjoberg, a man by the name who works at a hotel in Gothenburg, Sweden said that he had no problem with being credited on the song.
