Taylor Swift appears to have confirmed a romance with rumored new beau Matty Healy — as he uttered a cryptic message on stage in Nashville on Friday night.
The singer, 33, said: ‘This is about you, you know who you are. Love You “as she took the stage for her US Eras tour.”
Footage of the moment sent fans into a tailspin after realizing that Healy, 34, had used the exact same words at a concert in the Philippines on May 3.
The 1975 singer was also spotted in the crowd performing in Nashville on Friday, making a nonchalant figure as he watched from a fenced-in area with her close friends.
His appearance at the concert comes after it was claimed Taylor had struck up the new romance less than a month after her split from Joe Alwyn, 32.

Video emerged of Healy pointing into the camera saying “I love you” before drinking from a wine bottle during a performance in the Philippines.
The singer grinned when he heard Swift say the same words during the Nashville leg of her tour before performing Cardigan.
He flew in to see the star perform, and the visit seemed to coincide with her five-day hiatus before continuing the tour in Philadelphia.
Healy is on a month-long break from his own schedule after performing with the band in May and will hit the road again on June 2 with a gig in Poland.
Swift is said to be “madly in love” with Healy after their long-standing friendship blossomed into romance.
It was reported on Thursday that Matty and Taylor had agreed to take their relationship public this weekend, though she ultimately didn’t bring him on stage.
Matty seemed to be having the time of his life as he shuffled his shoulders in the audience as Taylor yelled Shake It Off.
However, some fans were quick to shut down the romance rumors, and many suspected that the not-so-subtle messages could be a nod to a possible collaboration between the two stars.

Swift performed two 1975 songs at their London gig in February, with the Sun reporting that Healey was expected to join her onstage in Nashville – though he remained in the audience Friday night.
A source told the publication: “Taylor and Matty have been planning their ‘coming out’ for a few weeks now and are very excited to make their love public.
“Neither of them wants secrets, or hiding. The plan is for Matty to walk on stage halfway through the show and play two songs.
“They’ll be chatting to the public and currently they’re supposed to confirm their romance with some kind of PDA — public display of affection. It won’t be anything cheesy though.’
It comes as the British hunk reportedly split from model Meredith Mickelson just weeks before he started dating the Mean hitmaker.
The singer is said to have romanced the 23-year-old model, who has built up a large following on social media, before they split in February.

The news of the new romance comes just weeks after it was revealed that Taylor had split from her boyfriend of six years Joe, 32, after the couple ‘struggled’ with their ‘career differences’.
But despite the short turnaround, Taylor is said to be ‘madly in love’ with Matt – the son of Loose Women star Denise Welch and Benidorm actor Tim Healy.
The rumored romance with Matt is the latest in a string of British boyfriends for Taylor, who – as well as her last relationship with Joe – has dated Harry Styles, Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston.
An insider told the publication, “She and Matty are madly in love.”
“It’s super early, but it feels good. They first dated, very briefly, almost ten years ago, but the timing just didn’t work.’
The source further stressed that there was no crossover in Taylor’s love life, despite the news that she had split last month, and insisted that the couple actually split in February.

Taylor is currently in the middle of the US leg of her The Eras Tour, while The 1975 is on their At Their Very Best concert tour, but the source insisted they kept in constant contact via text and Face Timing.
The source added: ‘As two international megastars, they understand the pressures of each other’s jobs better than anyone and are incredibly supportive of their respective careers.
“They are both extremely proud and excited about this relationship and, unlike Taylor’s last – which was purposely kept very much out of the spotlight – she wants to ‘own’ this romance, not hide it.
“Taylor just wants to live her life and be happy. She’s heard friends are flying Matty to Nashville this weekend to support her on the next leg of her tour.”

DailyMail.com reached out to Taylor representatives for comment.
In 2015, Matt denied romantic rumors with Taylor but confirmed that they text each other regularly.
After rumors circulated, he confirmed on Australian radio: ‘It’s fake. It’s all fake. It’s a farce!
“Yeah, we met, we exchanged numbers like a lot of people do in this kind of world, and we talked occasionally.
“And she’s the biggest pop star in the world and I’m in Australia. There is no like, relationship or anything. It’s just funny how people really believe in that.’
