Matty Healy’s aunt implies Taylor Swift’s ‘TTPD’ songs don’t tell the full story of romance


One of Matty Healy’s relatives comes to his defense.

While fans speculated that several of Taylor Swift’s songs from her brand new album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department,’ referenced her brief romance with Healy – including a song titled ‘The Smallest Man’ – his aunt Debbie Dedes argued that there was much more is going on. photo than what Swift shared.

“Nothing surprises him anymore,” she told the Daily Mail on Saturday. “He won’t be surprised by the number. He and she know what happened.”

Dedes, sister of Healy’s mother, Denise Welch, added: “As my cousin, we know a little more about what happened than is reported in the press.”

She also said he is “very happy” with his current girlfriend, model Gabbriette Bechtel.

Representatives for both Swift and Healy did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

In “The Smallest Man,” Swift, 34, sang about a man in a Jehovah’s Witnesses suit whom she accuses of “rustling” her “sparkling summer.”

Healy, the frontman of The 1975, wears a trademark black suit during most of his on-stage appearances, which arguably resembles an outfit worn by someone who follows the religion.

The couple dated between May and June 2023, right as summer started. The “Maroon” crooner was particularly criticized for her romance with Healy — which they never confirmed — due to his past racist comments about her rapper boyfriend Ice Spice and his general outlandish comments.

The fourteen-time Grammy winner seemingly referenced people telling her to stay away from someone she desires in “But Daddy I Love Him” ​​and she also explored similar emotions in “I Can Fix Him (No Real I Can).”

Rumor has it that they had an affair about ten years earlier.

In “The Smallest Man,” Swift also sang about a person who tried to “buy some pills from a friend of friends” of hers. The 35-year-old musician has been open about his struggles with substance abuse.

The ‘The Shortest Man’ may also refer to Healy’s height. He complained before that he is “sick of the king’s death” of people speculating about how tall he is, despite being 6 feet tall.

“You left your typewriter in my apartment / Straight from the Tortured Poets department / I guess there are some things I never say / Like, ‘Who uses typewriters anyway?’ Quick questions in the song.

When the billionaire pop star and Healy split last June, an insider told Entertainment Tonight that they were both “extremely busy” and “not really right for each other.”

Healy was first linked to Bechtel last September when they were seen locking lips during a PDA-filled stroll through New York City.
