Taylor Swift’s new love interest after her breakup with Joe Alwyn is actually someone from her past. In December 2014, Swift was romantically linked to Matty Healy, the lead singer of the band The 1975. Although neither Swift nor Healy confirmed the recent rumors about their relationship, they were spotted holding hands and kissing in New York City on May 11.
Their connection dates back to November 2014 when Healy and Swift met backstage at one of his concerts in Los Angeles. Swift attended the show with Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez, and the host of an Australian radio program suggested that Healy and Swift would make a great celebrity couple. Healy jokingly replied that he wouldn’t say no to dating Taylor Swift.
Around the same time, Swift was also rumored to be involved with Harry Styles, with speculation arising from their friendly reunion at The 1975’s show. However, it was later clarified that Styles was not present at the concert. In December 2014, Swift attended another concert by The 1975 in New York City, accompanied by Karlie Kloss. Us Weekly reported that Swift and Healy were secretly dating, with Healy pursuing her and frequently texting her.
In January 2015, Healy denied the dating rumors, stating that their alleged two-month relationship was fake. He emphasized that they had exchanged numbers like many people in the entertainment industry but there was no actual relationship between them. Healy expressed his admiration for Swift and debunked the idea of dating her, stating that it would be “emasculating.”
Despite these denials, their paths crossed again in February 2015 at Universal Music’s Brits party, where they were photographed together alongside Nick Grimshaw and Ellie Goulding. Healy maintained that their dynamic was merely a flirtation and Swift had no significant impact on his life.
The rumors resurfaced in November 2022 when it was reported that Healy and Swift had collaborated on her album “Midnights.” Healy confirmed that they had worked together but their music didn’t make it onto the album. He praised Swift and defended her decision not to include their collaboration, acknowledging her talent and the pressures she faced as a global superstar.
In January 2023, Swift made a surprise appearance at The 1975’s London show and performed her song “Anti-Hero.” She covered The 1975’s “The City” as well. In April, Swift and Alwyn’s breakup was reported, and sources stated that Swift was not looking to date anyone new and was focusing on herself.
However, in May 2023, Swift and Healy were revealed to be dating. Reports emerged that they were in love and planning to go public with their relationship. They were seen together at a restaurant in New York City, holding hands and displaying affection. They attended Swift’s concerts together, and Healy even joined her on stage during her shows in Philadelphia.
Sources close to the couple confirmed their relationship, revealing that they had dated briefly in 2014 and were now reconnecting. They both admired each other’s talent and were enjoying spending time together. Swift was hesitant to commit to a new relationship so soon after her previous one, but she was happy and looking forward to seeing where things would go with Healy.
As their romance blossomed, they were seen leaving a recording studio in Greenwich Village along with other musicians. They were also spotted sharing a kiss while on a group date at a members-only club. Friends close to Swift described her as happy and focused on her tour but enjoying her time with Healy.
With their history and shared connections, Swift and Healy’s relationship seems to have evolved from a past fling into something more serious. Swift’s fans are eagerly following their journey and hoping for happiness for the couple.
Only time will tell if Swift and Healy’s renewed romance will stand the test of time. For now, they continue to support each other’s careers and enjoy each other’s company.
