Rumour has it that Taylor Swift and The 1975’s Matty Healy are dating. 

There’s been talk of the relationship in recent weeks, but now it seems they’re ready to go public, with The Sun reporting they’ll do so this weekend in Nashville around Swift's Era shows.

Swift and Healy dated briefly back in 2014, and are said to have reunited about two months ago.

A source close to Swift told the publication that, despite reports of the US singer and actor Joe Alwyn splitting up only surfacing last month, they had actually ended things back in February.

“She and Matty are madly in love. It’s super-early days, but it feels right,” the insider said.

“Both Matty and Taylor have been touring over the past few weeks, so it’s been a lot of Face-Timing and texting but she cannot wait to see him again.

"But as two international megastars, they understand the pressures of one another’s jobs better than anyone, and are incredibly supportive of their respective careers.

“They are both massively proud and excited about this relationship and, unlike Taylor’s last one — which was very much kept out of the spotlight, deliberately — she wants to ‘own’ this romance, and not hide it away. 

“Taylor just wants to live her life, and be happy. She’s told pals Matty is flying to Nashville over the weekend to support her on the next leg of her tour.”

The 1975 recently wrapped their Aussie tour, which provided no shortage of headlines.

In Brisbane, the UK frontman addressed the viral meme where people refer to him as the Flushed Away rat, admitting that the character is actually based on him.

"I know that seems ridiculous, but if you do enough internet research, you’ll be able to find out that that’s true. So they did a good job; maybe I am officially a fucking rat,” he said.

Meanwhile, it appears Swift is preparing to announce her return to Australia very soon.

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that the Eras Australian tour – rumoured to take place early next year – will be very short, only stopping in Sydney and Melbourne.
