Taylor and Scottish DJ Calvin Harris announced their split on 2 June (16), but on 15 June (16), the Shake It Off singer was seen in a passionate clinch with British actor Tom Hiddleston, rumoured to be the next James Bond.

She has attracted some criticism for moving on so fast, but model Amber thinks it's entirely sexist.

"I feel like guys do that all the time - they break up and the next day they're with another girl and nobody really says anything," Amber told The Daily Beast. "But with Taylor it's, you know what, I'm done with Calvin and it didn't work out, so on to the next.

"It is because it's unheard of, and she's acting very 'slutty' and for some reason needs time to 'let her p**sy rest. That's how people look at it, and it's just like, hell no! If I'm done, why do I have to sit in the house and be lonely?"

There has also been speculation that the pictures were staged, due to the fact they appeared to be taken without using a long lens camera. But Amber knows how easy it is to be caught by photographers, and thinks that's probably what happened when Tom and Taylor enjoyed their stroll along a beach in Rhode Island.

"I did see that and I think she's f***ing awesome," Amber said of the pictures. "I mean, I don't know if it's staged - but that’s how it is! I was on a private beach in Maui - you literally had to drive three hours from the airport to get to this beach - and paparazzi still caught me."

Neither Taylor nor Tom have commented on the new relationship, but they have been seen together on a number of times since the Rhode Island pictures first emerged.

After the shots were published, Calvin made the decision to unfollow his ex on social media, and deleted the tweet he had previously posted following their split insisting he still had "love and respect" for the singer.
