- Earlier this year, Taylor Swift faced backlash for dating The 1975’s Matty Healy. For Swift’s fans, Matty is a controversial figure who has faced accusations of racism, misogynism, and Islamophobia.
- But after splitting with Taylor in June, Matty has been romantically linked to model and TikTok chef Gabbriette. They were first spotted kissing in in New York in early September. And earlier this month, Matty even moved in with Gabriette.
- The 1975’s fans are now applauding Gabbriette for her positive “girlfriend effect” on Matty. In viral TikTok videos, social media users have commented on how the previously disheveled Matty has had a haircut, a wardrobe makeover, and a general glow-up since dating Gabbriette.
- Fans described how a smiling Matty is looking so happy, “clean,” and “healthy” at his concerts right now — with a viewer joking that “Gabbriette be making him those gluten-free grain chocolate free brownies.”
- Social media users commented that he was clearly smitten and happy with Gabbriette and that “love suits him.” A fan writes: “Gabriette, thank you for your service.” “The girlfriend effect, everyone thank Gabbriette,” another viewer comments.
- When Matty was dating Taylor, he was criticized for his tendency to kiss fans at The 1975’s concerts — with some calling it “creepy.” However, in a TikTok video posted in September, Matty was seen refusing to kiss fans anymore as he was dating Gabbriette. He tells a concertgoer: “I don’t kiss people when I have a girlfriend.”
- Other fans also revealed how friendly and kind Gabbriette was to them at The 1975’s concerts — often chatting and dancing with them all night.
