Taylor Swift’s new love interest after Joe Alwyn turns out to be an old flame. Swift and Matty Healy, the frontman of The 1975, were rumored to be dating in 2014.
In May 2023, rumors sparked as Swift and Healy were seen holding hands and kissing in New York City. However, their relationship was short-lived and ended shortly after it began.
Back in November 2014, Healy and Swift met backstage at one of his concerts in Los Angeles. They exchanged numbers and were speculated to become the next big celebrity couple.
In December 2014, reports surfaced that Swift and Healy were secretly dating. Healy pursued her and frequently texted her, but in January 2015, he denied the rumors, calling them fake.
Their paths crossed again in February 2015 at Universal Music’s Brits party, but Healy described their dynamic as a flirtation and stated that dating Swift would be “emasculating.”
In September 2019, Healy expressed interest in working with Swift on an acoustic album, praising her talent and calling her amazing.
Rumors of collaboration emerged in November 2022, but the music they made together didn’t make the final cut for Swift’s album Midnights.
In January 2023, Swift made a surprise appearance at The 1975’s London show, performing her song “Anti-Hero” and covering their track “The City.”
In April 2023, Swift and Alwyn’s breakup was reported, with sources stating that Swift wasn’t looking to date anyone new.
Surprising the internet, Swift and Healy emerged as a couple in May 2023, with reports indicating their strong feelings for each other.
They were seen together on various occasions, including attending concerts, with Swift performing at The 1975’s show and Healy joining Phoebe Bridgers on stage during Swift’s tour.
On May 11, they had their first public date in New York City, where they were spotted cuddling and kissing.
Despite their reunion, Swift was hesitant to commit so soon after her previous long-term relationship ended.
However, the relationship didn’t last, and they ultimately broke up in June 2023, with Swift being described as single.
Although their relationship had its ups and downs, Swift and Healy’s story proves that sometimes love can be complicated and fleeting.
