Taylor's ticket trouble: Fans take sides after Haylor split

They might never ever, like, ever, get back together, but Harry Styles and Taylor Swift's split is causing a little bit of tension among fans.

They might never ever, like, ever, get back together, but Harry Styles and Taylor Swift's split is causing a little bit of tension among fans.

After reports of an 'almighty row' with her boyfriend-of-the-time in the British Virgin Islands over the New Year, it seems the golden girl of pop is suffering more than just a broken heart.

News of the split has divided Directioners and Swifties, with reports of Taylor's ticket sales dropping by almost half — while 1D sales saw an increase. Ouch!

"1D and Taylor Swift are two of the most popular acts in the world and they're consistently among our best-sellers," spokesperson Louise Mullock said.

"However, the adulation received by 1D is one of a kind, and the boys' fans are famously protective.

"Since many of Taylor's fans are also 1D fans, she may have bitten off more than she can chew by dividing their loyalties."

Taylor will be kicking off her 'Red' tour this March, while One Direction will begin their 117-show world tour on February 23 in London.

What do you think, Swifties? Don't you think Taylor's been hurt enough?
