Are Taylor Swift and Matty Hailey dating?

After knowing each other for years, Taylor and Matty were caught in the middle of romance rumors. They were initially linked in 2014 when Matty denied dating the “Blank Space” singer, and the rumor resurfaced when Taylor performed with 1975 at their London concert in January 2023. Matty was an opening act at Taylor’s concert in Nashville alongside Phoebe Bridgers. Many fans also spotted Matty while watching Taylor’s concert with her father, Scott Swift. Mattie supported Taylor by going to a total of 6 shows of the Eras Tour in Nashville and Philadelphia. The couple was photographed leaving the venue together after Taylor’s show in Nashville. The stars were also spotted holding hands last week although neither of them has confirmed the official status of their relationship.

A source revealed the status of Taylor and Matty’s relationship by saying, “Taylor is happy. She’s very focused on her touring but enjoys hanging out with Matty when she’s out.” They added, “They just hang out and have a good time. It’s not just platonic.”

Meanwhile, Healy recently faced backlash after an old video of him talking about masturbation surfaced online. Swift’s fans have also criticized and questioned why the singer is dating Matty.
