FKA Twigs And The 1975 Singer Matty Healy Reportedly Dating — What We Know
Entertainment And News

New potential couple alert! It seems like FKA Twigs and Matty Healy could be dating, and there's already plenty of evidence that this is a legit couple in the making.

In fact, FKA Twigs (real name: Tahliah Debrett Barnett) and the 1975 singer have been spotted together quite a bit recently, and there are even signs that things could be getting pretty serious between them.

So are FKA Twigs and Matt Healy dating for real, or are they just really good friends? Let's investigate, shall we?

1. Rumors that Twigs and Healy are dating first began over the holidays. 

Healy and Twigs were spotted in London together over the holidays, later seen in LAX airport, holding hands — not exactly something that two friends traveling together would do. This is where the speculation that they might be dating began, and the video a fan captured of them in the airport spread like wildfire among other fans on Twitter who debated whether Healy and Twigs were a couple or simply collaborating on music. But at this point, it seems much more likely that they're dating, especially since they've been seen together on multiple occasions since then.

2. Earlier this month, Twigs met Healy's family.

Twigs and Healy attended RuPaul's DragCon in London, where UK drag queen Vinegar Strokes took a photo with them both — including Healy's mother, Denise Welch. This means that Twigs has officially met Healy's family, if not that day, then even earlier ... which suggests that something may have been going on between them even longer than fans might have realized.

3. They may be trying to keep their relationship a secret.

When Welch shared the same group photo from DragCon that Vinegar Strokes posted on Twitter, she cut Twigs out of the photo. Was this because she's not a fan of Twigs, or for the much more likely reason that Twigs and Healy are trying to keep their relationship as private as possible and didn't want people to know that they'd been there together with his mom? Hmm... 

4. Twigs was most recently linked to Shia LaBeouf.

After her long term relationship with Robert Pattinson fizzled out in 2017 last year, Twigs dated Shia LaBeouf. That came to an end in June 2019, when a source close to the former couple said that Twigs wanted to focus on her music while she was touring.

"They both have put their relationship on hold," the insider said at the time. "FKA has been focusing on her tour and she wanted to put all of her heart and soul into it. They are really up in the air right now and were waiting until all of her work commitments were fulfilled to figure it out."

5. Their relationship isn't social media official ... yet.

Looking at both Twigs' Instagram and Healy's Instagram accounts, they both appear to be totally single people. In fact, most of their posts generally focus on their careers and not much else, so if they are dating, they're definitely keeping it on the down low — at least, as far as social media is concerned. Then again, neither of them have overly-shared their personal life online, so this seems to be both of them following their usual pattern when it comes to their love lives.

6. But are FKA Twigs and Matt Healy dating? So far, they have yet to confirm their relationship status themselves.

Judging by how much time they've been spending together (especially their hand holding in the airport), it would appear that Twigs and Healy are together — but they're obviously not ready to share it with the world just yet.

Hopefully, they'll update fans on their potential relationship soon, but until then, we'll just have to keep looking out for them to be spotted together in public.
