Before Swifties had a chance to come to terms with Taylor Swift being single again, following news in early April of her break up with her boyfriend of six years, Joe Alwyn, there were reports the singer was already dating someone else. Not just anyone else, either: 1975 frontman Matt Healy.
At first, not even @DeuxMoi believed the rumours, with the gossip site ignoring anonymous tips about the new romance until someone seriously close to Swift came forward and revealed themselves (to @DeuxMoi, not us, unfortunately). Fast forward literally, like, a week, and Healy is at back-to-back Eras Tour concerts, bopping away to ‘Love Story’ with Gigi Hadid and seen entering Swift’s Nashville home with her late at night. They were also seen holding hands at Casa Cipriani in New York City, according to People and Healy was spotted entering Swift’s townhouse in NYC, per TMZ.
Apparently, things are moving faster with Swift and Healy – who have been friends for years and allegedly dated at one point – than either of them anticipated.
“[Healy] and Taylor have been friends for years and reconnected,” a source told The Messenger. “They had talked about working on music together years ago, but reunited through mutual friends.”
They added that once the reconnection happened “things moved very quickly and she was swept off her feet. They have been inseparable.”
Alwyn, who Swift’s friends all unfollowed on Instagram hinting that the British actor may have done Swift dirty, is reportedly upset by these developments with a source telling Daily Mail,
“Joe feels slighted and is distraught after seeing her budding relationship with Matt, but is doing his best to keep busy and focus on himself.”
“Joe was aware that Taylor and Matt were making music together and collaborating,” they continued. “She told him that they had become friends and he trusted her.” However, they denied there was any romantic “overlap” between Healy and Alwyn in Swift’s life.
Sources aside, while performing in Massachusetts on Saturday night, Swift told fans: “I’ve just never been this happy in my life, in all aspects of my, life ever. And I just want to thank you for being a part of that.”
“It’s not just the tour,” she added. “I just sort of feel like my life finally feels like it makes sense.” So, there’s that.
