When Did Meredith Mickelson Date Matty Healy?

It’s unclear when the Bad Haircut actress and Matty started dating, but they reportedly called it quits in March 2023.

According to The Mirror, Meredith was “blindsighted” by the rocker’s decision to not see each other anymore.

“She did not see this coming at all. All the time Matty was in the studio with Taylor, she thought nothing of it. He’d spend the day in the studio and then come home to her,” a source told the outlet in May 2023. “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. Then, four weeks later, he went public with Taylor.”

The insider also claimed that Meredith’s “inner circle” was “quite angry about how he treated her, and feel that he is not a good guy.”

That May, reports claimed that Matty and Taylor were back together and they were soon seen attending each other’s concerts when they weren’t roaming NYC. They called it quits the following month and the “Vigilante S–t” singer moved on with current boyfriend Travis Kelce.

That said, Taylor detailed her shocking romance with Matty that spanned more than a decade in TTPD. The album’s songs including “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived and “But Daddy I Love Him” are about the devilish musician.
