Chinese internet users and fans of Taylor Swift are taking out insurance with some online sellers promising to pay double should she 'break up' with rumoured flame Tom Hiddleston.
淘宝一些商家近日面向广大网友和泰勒 斯威夫特的粉丝们推出霉霉抖森“分手险”，如果霉霉和绯闻男友汤姆 希德勒斯顿分手，店家承诺将双倍给付保险金。
Despite the fact that their relationship has not been confirmed, Chinese web users are already classing them as an item and using it as an excuse to take out insurance on their relationship on China's e-commerce giant Taobao.
It's not just Taylor Swift's love life, other celebrity events can also be included in the insurance packages, such as whether or not Katy Perry will win a Grammy in 2017.
Pictures emerged last week of the pop superstar kissing her new beau on a beach near her Rhode Island home, before they were seen the next day boarding a private jet together.
According to China's state-run media Xinhua News Agency, people started using Taobao, China's largest online marketplace, to bet on Taylor Swift's relationships this week.
Each bet costs 1 yuan.
If the pop singer 'breaks up' with the alleged new love interest within a year then the buyer will get double their bet which is directly paid into their bank account.
One seller says that there have been 543 transactions.
Another seller named Ma Jia said that the highest amount someone has spent was 400 yuan.
One buyer named Xiaoting said: 'If I bought a million, I would make a lot. These stars break up all the time which gives us the opportunity to earn a lot of money.'
He said that he wanted to buy more but the seller refunded him money and advised him on a limit.
Ma Jia, the seller says that his own shop has capped purchases to 300 yuan.
According to site Sixth Tone, Chinese web users can also bet on whether or not Katy Perry will win a Grammy in 2017 and whether Sherlock, which is incredibly popular in China, will air next year as promised.
Internet users are also able to bet on their own love lives.
There is even a policy for single people where if they meet a partner within a month of placing their bet then they will be given 13.14 yuan, which symbolises lifetime in Chinese.
