Taylor Swift and Matty Healy were spotted together amid rumours the pair are “madly in love.”

Last week, The Sun first reported Swift, 33, and British The 1975 frontman Healy, 34, were in a relationship just weeks after it was confirmed the pop star had split from British actor Joe Alwyn, 32.

And on Thursday, the pair were spotted at New York City’s Casa Cipriani, where Page Six reports: “They sat next to each other at a banquette in the lounge.”

In a picture posted on Twitter, the duo can be seen together holding hands in the background.

It comes days after Healy - the son of Loose Women star Denise Welsh - made a surprise appearance at the Nashville performance of Swift’s Eras tour on Saturday night.

The English musician delighted fans when he appeared on stage in a skeleton onesie supporting indie singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers on her first night of opening for Swift.

Healy had been spotted in the audience of Swift’s show on the Friday night but his appearance on stage the following evening had come as a surprise.

Speculation that Healy - who first met and briefly dated Swift a decade ago - was dating the multi-award winning pop star has been building for weeks.

A source close to Taylor said last week: “She and Matty are madly in love. 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.

“Taylor and Joe actually split up back in February, so there was absolutely no crossover.

“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.”
