Taylor Swift and Matty Healy have called it quits after a whirlwind two-month romance, according to TMZ.
The news of their split comes as a surprise to fans, who were taken aback when their relationship was revealed at the beginning of May.
A close friend of Swift confirmed that she is now “single,” but the reason behind their separation remains unclear.
This short-lived romance followed Swift’s recent breakup with Joe Alwyn, her partner of six years. Swift and Healy were last seen together on May 25 in New York City.
Interestingly, the breakup occurred just three days after Healy was spotted kissing a male security guard during a concert in Denmark.
Swift and Healy’s paths first crossed in 2014, sparking initial speculation about their connection. However, they maintained a platonic friendship over the years and denied any romantic involvement. It wasn’t until last month that a source confirmed to The Sun that the two musicians were indeed in a relationship, describing them as being “madly in love.”
During their time together, Healy showed support for Swift during her The Eras Tour. He attended her Nashville concerts, often casting adoring glances her way. They were also frequently seen together in New York City, leaving a recording studio and going out for dinner with Swift’s friends, including Margaret Qualley, Phoebe Bridgers, and Zoe Kravitz.
Healy, known for his previous relationships with Halsey and FKA Twigs, separated from the latter in 2022.
Meanwhile, Swift’s relationship with Alwyn ended in April, which led to rumors about her newfound connection with Healy.
Although Swift’s inner circle, including her brother Austin, Gigi Hadid, and the Haim sisters, reportedly unfollowed Alwyn on social media after their breakup, no such public reactions have been observed following her split from Healy.
Healy’s onstage behavior during a recent concert in Denmark further fueled the breakup rumors.
While performing the song “Robbers” with his band, The 1975, he left the stage to kiss a male security guard. The act elicited cheers from the crowd, as Healy appeared to reference his relationship with Swift.
As Swift and Healy part ways, their fans are left wondering about the reasons behind their sudden breakup. Swift’s supporters had previously expressed concerns about Healy’s controversial podcast comments from earlier this year, where he made inappropriate remarks about explicit content. However, neither Swift nor Healy has made any official statements regarding their relationship or its end.
Moving forward, Swift will continue her successful career as one of the music industry’s wealthiest self-made women. With a net worth of $740 million, she ranks as the second richest self-made woman in music, surpassing icons like Madonna and Beyoncé. Swift’s talent and entrepreneurial ventures have propelled her to great success, and she shows no signs of slowing down.
While Swift and Healy’s romance may have been short-lived, their fans will undoubtedly keep a close eye on their respective careers and personal lives. As the story unfolds, the world will eagerly await any future developments and new music that may be inspired by these experiences.
