The fans want to KNOW

Taylor Swift and Matt Healy are fueling the dating rumors after the latest concert on The Eras Tour.

The frontman for the group The 1975 and Taylor Swift spent time together in Nashville, Tennessee over the weekend where she performed three back to back shows.

“Taylor and Matty like each other. Taylor has a crush on Matty and they are having a good time hanging out. Matty also thinks Taylor is awesome and incredibly talented, too. They dated briefly in the past,” an insider claimed to Entertainment Tonight.

A source went on to add that Jack Antonoff reconnected the two.

Back in April, Swift and Joe Alwyn went separate ways after being together for nearly six years. Many outlets reported that Swift was moving on with Healy despite his past comments on the singer.

Taylor Swift and Matt Healy Timeline

In fall of 2014, the two exchanged numbers, but allegedly nothing happened between the two of them.

“We met each other, we exchanged numbers in the same way that a lot of people in this kind of world do, and we spoke occasionally,” he said. “She’s the biggest pop star in the world and I’m in Australia. There’s no relationship or anything happening. It’s just funny how people really, really buy into that.”

The Controversial Healy Comments

Back in 2016, the rocker also added that it would be “emasculating” to date Swift.

“So the one time I did have a flirtation with a girl, it ends up going everywhere…I mean, I got on E! News and people were like, ‘Who’s Matt Healy?’ so that was cool,” he told Q magazine. “But I didn’t make a big deal out of it myself. It’s not really anything to talk about because if she wasn’t Taylor Swift we wouldn’t be talking about her. She wasn’t a big impact on my life.”

Healy continued, “It’s just interesting to me how interested the world is about Taylor Swift. The reason I mention that is because if I had [properly] gone out with Taylor Swift, I would’ve been, ‘f***ing hell, I am not being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend. You know, ‘F***. That.'”

The musician later backtracked and said the quotes were taken out of context.

“Now I may admit to being an idiot on occasion, but I am not a misogynist,” he tweeted. “This suggestion makes me really sad.”

Healy explained that since Swift was spotted at his show in December 2014, “90 perfect of journalists that have interviewed me have asked about either her as a person or what our ‘interaction’ was like. I have said on countless occasions that I found her to be one of the most gracious, hard working, creatively gifted, and beautiful women that I have had the pleasure to meet. I personally have a lot of respect and admiration for her. Why would I not?”

He continued, “I didn’t even date Taylor, but the media’s incessant and brutal obsession with her has meant that even a guy who DIDN’T DATE HER has been so battered by their never-ending questions that he’s inevitably said something that can be lifted and molded into something that resembles ‘shade’.

Back in January of 2023, Swift performed “Ani-Hero” for the first time. She covered the band’s song “The City” with many fans thinking she was still in a relationship with Alwyn.

The Sun Reports the Two Are Dating

The Sun claims on May 3rd that Taylor Swift and Healy are “madly in love” and will be going public with their relationship in Nashville.

“Taylor and Joe actually split up back in February, so there was absolutely no crossover,” a source noted. “Both Matty and Taylor have been touring over the past few weeks, so it’s been a lot of Face-Timing and texting but she cannot wait to see him again.”

Healy performed at Swift’s Friday show as he flew to Tennessee from the Phillippines.

Healy went again on Saturday and even took the stage as a special guest during Phoebe Bridger’s opening act. The star stuck around to watch Swift perform and hung out with Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge.

After the show, Swift and Healy were spotted for the first time by Daily Mail arriving at the singer’s condo in Nashville.
