On Friday night, Matt Healy made his second appearance at a Taylor Swift Eras Tour concert in Philadelphia at the Lincoln Financial Field. He even took to the stage for a second time after playing guitar in an opening set with Phoebe Bridgers in Nashville last week. He wore his skeleton suit again, before moving to the audience to enjoy the rest of the show. The musician was seated next to Swift’s close friend Blake Lively.
Lively was there with her children James, Inez, and Betty, and Swift reportedly shouted out the kids on stage that night. Her track “Betty” is named after Lively’s little girl. A day before the Philly appearance, the rumored couple were seen holding hands while on a double date with Jack Antonoff and his fiancée Margaret Qualley at Casa Cipriani in NYC. Page Six reports they were seated together and “cuddling and kissing” and surrounded by security.
Swift recently split with ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn, who she dated for six years. The British actor and pop star mostly kept their relationship very private, but broke up shortly before her tour commenced. The news came out in April, and Swift’s friends Gigi Hadid and Blake Lively unfollowed him on social media soon after Swift had a girl’s night with her friends in New York City.
On Sunday, May 14, Healy was photographed with Swift in a car in the early hours of the morning after her Nashville concert outside her condo. Healy had been in the audience after his performance with Bridgers, hanging with Hadid and Lily Aldridge.
A source told ET Online that Swift is “enjoying her time with Matty.”
“Taylor and Matty have known each other and have history,” the source said. “So there’s a comfortability factor there, but also feelings of excitement.”
