Tom Hiddleston at the Emmy Awards

Tom Hiddleston has confirmed he and Taylor Swift are on good terms following their break up.

The 35-year-old actor and the 'Blank Space' hitmaker went their separate ways earlier this month after dating for three months, and despite the media controversy over who dumped who, the they are still pals.

When asked at the Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday (18.09.16) if he and Taylor were still friends, the 'Night Manager' star told PEOPLE: "Yes. Yes, we are."

But it seems the 'Thor' actor wasn't dwelling on his relationship with the 26-year-old musician for long, as eye witnesses claim to have seen the hunk getting close to 34-year-old actress Priyanka Chopra at the awards after-party.

An insider told E!: "Tom had his arm around her and held her close.

"Afterwards, Tom and Priyanka talked closely and were holding hands at one point for a few moments. Priyanka fixed Tom's bow-tie and then the two kissed on both cheeks."

The reports come after the 'Bad Blood' hitmaker was said to have wanted to keep their former relationship private, deeming the Emmys "too public".

A source previously 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.

"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."

The relationship reportedly then fell apart when insiders claimed Tom "didn't listen" to Taylor over her concerns about the possible impact that publicity could have on their romance.

A source said: "Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection but Tom didn't listen to her concerns when she brought them up."
