Calvin Harris, perennially ranked by Forbes as the world's highest-paid DJ and electronic dance music performer, on Monday responded to a tabloid claiming he and Taylor Swift had broken up over his going to a Thai massage parlor in Los Angeles last month.

The Scottish disc jockey, 31, tweeted he would "sue for defamation of character for all these [expletive] stories bye bye."

The tabloid website RadarOnline.com had posted photos purporting to show Harris exiting a massage parlor on Sept. 12, claiming that an upset Swift, 25, eventually broke off their relationship about a week ago.

Swift's publicist, Tree Paine, tweeted Monday, "I've said it before and I'm saying it again, do not believe Radar Online." Swift herself has not commented on social media.

Harris and Swift were first seen together romantically in April, People magazine said at the time.

In August, Forbes magazine reported that Harris had annual earnings of $66 million over the past year.
