News of Swift supposedly finding a new boyfriend shocked many initially as it came shortly after she revealed she had ended her relationship with Joe Alwyn in April. According to reports, they broke up in February and there is no crossover with Healy.

It definitely seems that Swift has a thing for British men as Healy is just the recent big name in her love life. The singer has previously dated the likes of Harry Styles, Tom Hiddleston and Calvin Harris.

Here is everything you need to know about whether or not Swift and Healy have split. This includes a look at The 1975 star's dating history.

News of the two finding love with each other was first reported after an exclusive source told The Sun on 3 May that the pair had found each other.

The source explained: "It's super-early days, but it feels right. They first dated, very briefly, almost ten years ago but timings just didn’t work out. 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"

After numerous pictures together of the duo since, everything seemed happy on Swift and Healy island - but apparently not. TMZ has reported that the couple have decided to split and shake off their relationship, with the reason behind the split not known.

Rumours that Taylor and Matt had gone their separate ways surged after The 1975's performance in Denmark last weekend, when footage emerged of the frontman going back to his old ways of being intimate with people at his gig as he locked lips with a security guard.
