Taylor Swift is rumored to have moved on from her "London Boy."

Tabloid The Sun alleges that, according to a source close to the singer, Swift is now dating The 1975 frontman and longtime friend Matty Healy.

"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," said the anonymous source. "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."

The source added, "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."

After The Sun published the article, DeuxMoi confirmed having heard about Swift and Healy's rumored romance two weeks ago, even discussing it on the April 13 episode of their podcast Deux U. The anonymous celebrity gossiper also shared a clip from an upcoming May 4 podcast episode on Instagram, relaying what they had heard and noting that they also didn't believe it at first.

However, after Deuxmoi first acknowledged the rumor, the pseudonymous social media account received a tip from a celebrity (whom they do not name) saying they'd also heard about Swift, 33, and Healy, 34, dating.

"So this comes from another celebrity, [who] messaged me last weekend and said, 'I had to tell you, I just heard that Tay Swift is already dating the lead singer of The 1975. [Jack] Antonoff set it up,'" she said, relaying the DM verbatim.

Swift's fans, devastated over the pop star's breakup from her boyfriend Joe Alwyn, took to social media to share their reaction, making "Matty Healy" trend on Twitter.

Some fans refused to believe the rumor, laughing it off.

Others were upset at thinking of the possibility that Swift's moved on already from Alwyn.

Swifties who weren't freaking out over the possible pairing were able to find humor in the situation.

As of writing, Neither Swift nor Healy have responded to the rumors.

In early April, Entertainment Tonight broke the news that Swift and Alwyn split the month prior. In the weeks since, some of her closest friends and family unfollowed the actor on Instagram.
