Rumors went wild when Taylor Swift and Matty Healy were allegedly dating after a backstage photo of the 1975 singer’s mother, Denise Welch, shared with Swift at a concert.
Healy’s mother, a famous British actress, was smiling in an Instagram post in January as she held the “Anti-Hero” singer tight at The 02 music venue in London.
“Oh, what a night in a sold-out 02. I’m so proud I can’t even start!” Welch, 64, captioned his carousel post featuring Swift, who surprisingly appeared on the set of 1975.
Naturally, fans freaked out with their theory and thought the sweet snap might be a clue that Swift was getting close to Welch’s son.
The Sun reported Wednesday that Swift, 33, and Healy, 34, formed a romantic bond after an insider claimed they were “cradly in love” despite allegedly dating for only two months.

“It’s very early days, but it feels right,” the source said. “First, they came out very briefly, almost 10 years ago, but the timings just didn’t work.”
The “Chocolate” singer, who sparked dating rumors in 2014, was spotted showing off a white T-shirt featuring Swift’s “1989” album cover art during the rock band’s show at The Rave in Milwaukee.
Soon after, Swift was seen giving back some of her love for a T-shirt by wearing a black shirt advertising The 1975 in Los Angeles after attending the band’s show at SoCal.
As for Swift’s split from Joe Alwyn – Page Six confirmed earlier this month – an insider claimed that the six-year relationship actually ended in February, so there has been “absolutely no transition.”
Swift and Healy have yet to make a public statement about their romance rumors. However, The Sun’s source also claimed that Healy “flyed to Nashville for the weekend” to attend Swift’s Eras Tour.
As for Healy’s exes, the singer has previously dated model Gabriella Brooks and fellow singer FKA Twigs.
