“She did not see this coming at all. All the time Matty was in the studio with Taylor, she thought nothing of it,” a source close to Meredith told The Mirror in May 2023. “He’d spend the day in the studio and then come home to her. Things were going well until around March 29, then out of the blue, he stopped replying to messages and calls.”

“He just ghosted her and that was it,” the source continued. “Then four weeks later, he went public with Taylor. She was totally blindsided and, of course, it has stung her a bit. She doesn’t want to play the victim and has no intention of saying anything publicly. But those of us in her inner circle who she has confided in are quite angry about how he treated her and feel that he is not a good guy. His reluctance to be seen out and about with her in February now appears in a very different light.”
