Taylor Swift has been embracing the single life over the last few weeks, but a couple of months back it did seem as if she might have a new man on the scene.
The singer was said to be forming a budding romance with Matt Healy, the British frontman of rock band The 1975, and although the pair were never pictured out an about together there were a few telltale signs. Not only was Taylor spotted hanging out backstage at once of Matt's concerts, but the pair even swapped official merch – Matt was seen sporting a 1989 t-shirt while Taylor wore a cropped 1975 top while shopping in New York. Modern love, eh?
With no other spottings over the last few weeks, we naturally assumed things were over before they'd even began, but a source close to Matt says different! "Things have quieted down drastically between the two only because of Matt’s tour responsibilities and Taylor’s crazy schedule," said the insider.
"But he is going to be done and back in the states for two big opportunities to win back Taylor’s attention and heart."
Taylor and Matt are reportedly still in touch, and Matt is prepared to make some big gestures to show the Shake It Off singer that he's serious about her. "They still talk and he is fully aware that if he wants something to continue he may want to really go all out during these moments and be with her. If he isn’t then its pretty much finished," said the source.
Hmmm… either Matt's slightly delusional or he really does have a chance… hard to tell!
