The couple was recently spotted on a double date in New York with Taylor’s collaborator Jack Antonoff and his fiancée Margaret Qualley at Casa Cipriani.
Shortly after photos of Taylor and Matty surfaced, the Hollywood actor, who is also the co-owner of Wrexham football club, took to Instagram to playfully taunt his friend.
