AceShowbiz - Matty Healy has been leaning on his friends following his rumored split from Taylor Swift. The British rocker said he has been surrounded by his "boys" as he returned to the stage with his band The 1975 following his whirlwind romance with the American superstar.
On Monday, June 5, Matty performed in Vienna, Austria when he noticed some fans held a sign offering words of support for him. "[Fans at] the front had some very beautiful signs that said 'You are loved,' " he said, thanking the fans for their encouragement.
"That was very, very kind of you and I'm sure that it's alluding to...," the 34-year-old stopped short of mentioning what he had been going through recently. He continued, "As you're aware, I'm not very online at the moment and I'm sure people have just been calling me a c**t relentlessly. I've not been online."
While he's grateful for the positive message, Matty said he doesn't it because he has his "boys." The singer added, "But what I have been with is with my boys and honestly as much as I appreciate that - it's so beautiful, and I thank you, but - I don't need it 'cause I've got them."
Matty and Taylor reportedly broke up after only a few weeks of dating. During his short romance with the Grammy winner, Matty was scrutinized over his appearance on the "Adam Friedland Show" podcast.
In the controversial episode, Adam and co-host Nick Mullen called Ice Spice an "Inuit Spice Girl" and "chubby Chinese lady" while mocking Chinese and Hawaiian accents. Matty, who was a guest in the episode, laughed along and did not stand up for the 23-year-old raptress, who was recently featured in Taylor's "Karma" remix. He also encouraged the hosts to do an "impression" of a Japanese Nazi.
Meanwhile, Deuxmoi has claimed that Matty and Taylor "aren't over" yet despite the split rumors. Sources claimed that the pair did not break up because they were never dating to begin with, describing their brief fling as "not a committed relationship."
One of the sources told the gossip account that the American singer/songwriter and the British rocker are simply not hanging out together right now because they're on tour in different continents. "It was hard and fast and not a committed relationship right off the hop. He's on tour in Europe and she's touring the US. Logistical problems at the moment.... People are nutso," the source wrote in a DM sent to the outlet.
