THE 1975 frontman MATT HEALY has found love again – six months after splitting from singer FKA TWIGS, his girlfriend of two years.
I can exclusively reveal that despite being busy touring recently, he is seeing Canadian model and influencer Charlotte Briar D’Alessio after they met through friends.
A pal told me: “Matty and Charlotte have been quietly dating for a number of weeks and are head over heels for each other.
‘I do like hot girls’
“It is early days and they are taking things slowly but it is clear to everyone who knows Matty how keen he is on her.
“They have been really subtle about being seen together, but backstage at his gigs, Charlotte is often there.
“Although they haven’t gone public yet, it is only a matter of time.
“Charlotte clearly feels really strongly about Matty, too.
“This Christmas will be a really lovely time for them to get to know one another better.”
In June I told how Matty had split from FKA Twigs after the pair drifted apart.
Sources at the time insisted the split was amicable, blaming “work commitments.”
It’s clear he has some serious pulling power because before that, he dated Aussie model Gabriella Brooks — who has since moved on with Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth — for four years.
In October Matty opened up about what he looks for in women and insisted he was only looking for love with a lady.
The singer, who completed a two-month tour of North America last week, said: “I am straight. That has been up for debate for some time on Twitter and stuff. So girls. But I do like hot girls.
“You know, you have got to enjoy your life. Funny and interesting is cool but hot is definitely the most important thing.”
He has most definitely found that in Charlotte.
CARDI B rocks the laid-back holiday vibe after jetting to Jamaica for a pre-Christmas holiday.
The rapper was joined by husband Offset as she sat downstream from a waterfall on the Caribbean island.
Last Friday she released a remix of Rosalia’s song Despecha where she added a verse. But everyone will be hearing more than that from Cardi next year.
It’s been almost five years since she dropped her debut album and earlier this month she promised the follow-up will be released in 2023.
Given she seems to be flying around the world all the time, no wonder it has taken so long.
Liam flies to meet Kate’s parents
I’ve learned American Kate introduced Bedroom Floor singer Liam to her parents in New Jersey earlier this week.
It comes after he whisked her off to Rome for a romantic getaway last month, and proves things are getting serious.
A source said: “Many people thought Kate was going to be another flash in the pan but things have really taken off.
“He is besotted and couldn’t wait to meet her friends and family.
“It’s been quite a tough 12 months for him but Kate has helped him get back to his best.”
Keen to be around for his five-year-old son Bear, by ex Cheryl, Liam will split his time over the festive period between America and the UK.
Our insider added: “Liam’s priority is Bear.
“Cheryl transforms their home into a winter wonderland every year and, with Bear still being young, it’s a magical time for them all.
“Liam is adamant that he won’t miss out on anything.”
After splitting with Cheryl in 2018, Liam went on to date Mexican-American model Maya Henry.
The pair became engaged, before splitting for a second and final time earlier this year.
Hopefully this new love works out.
MILEY CYRUS has enlisted the help of Mark Ronson, Mike Will Made-It and Ryan Tedder for her upcoming album.
It is expected to drop on New Year’s Eve when she will host a TV special in the US.
Teasing the release, Ryan commented on a snap of the Wrecking Ball singer: “Wait till you hear the new . . . ”
Swift on song for Oscars
THREE of the biggest women in music are about to go head- to-head at the Oscars after they were shortlisted in the Best Original Song category.
Others in the running include Nothing Is Lost (You Give Me Strength) by THE Weeknd from Avatar: The Way Of Water, and Selena Gomez’s My Mind & Me from her film of the same name.
Nominations from the shortlist will announced next month. But one notable absentee is one of the most successful movie songs of the year, OneRepublic’s I Ain’t Worried, which was also in Top Gun: Maverick.
Dua is racking up cash
DUA LIPA added around £26,000 a day to her pop fortune last year – so friends and family can expect great gifts this Christmas.
New figures for her firm Dua Lipa Limited show she had earnings of £9.8million and was left with a profit of £4.1million. Her firm reports £36.2million worth of assets, with £14.7million of that in investments.
The Levitating singer, who will have even bigger earnings next year once she reaps the rewards of her Future Nostalgia tour, set up the business in 2014 and has seen her earnings rocket since then.
She completed the tour last month in Albania and is planning to spend the first part of 2023 finishing her third studio album. The world is her oyster right now.
Leaked track so Spicey
THE SPICE GIRLS are bracing themselves after a snippet of a song with an embarrassing X-rated title leaked online.
Victoria Beckham, Geri Horner, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Melanie C have spoken before about the existence of C. U. Next Tuesday.
It was recorded for their 1996 debut album Spice but was ditched and has never been heard by the public.
But yesterday some of the chorus was shared online, indicating the track has fallen into the wrong hands.
When it was rumoured the song could come out as part of a greatest hits album a few years ago, Mel C said: “C.U. Next Tuesday was never used because it’s a pile of s**t.”
It would be mortifying if this emerged on the internet, then . . .
Tom’s all focused on family
AFTER a hectic 12 months jetting around the world, the only gift Tom Grennan is excited for this Christmas is a bit of time off.
Revealing his plans, he told me: “Family time is how I will spend my Christmas. It is the only time I get off in the year for me to reflect.
“I don’t get to see my family a lot, so when I do then I soak it all in.
“It’s not hard to have a personal life but it’s hard to live a normal life.”
While many of us will be hitting the local boozer to sink one or two cold ones on Christmas Eve, Tom admitted he has learnt the hard way not to get too drunk.
He added: “I once went out on Christmas Eve and got in at 7am as my family were opening the presents.
“Mum wasn’t impressed.”
Cold comfort for Ellie
ELLIE BAMBER wrapped up against the cold to attend the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards nominations party.
The Willow actress looked chic at the Mayfair Hotel bash on Wednesday, wearing an oversized black shirt under her coat.
She missed out on a nomination but The Banshees Of Inisherin starring Colin Farrell led the nominations with nine nods. Paul Mescal’s Aftersun is hot on its heels with eight.
Still, anything for a free glass of champers, eh Ellie?
