Taylor Swift, ex Matty Healy’s bandmate both attend Jack Antonoff’s wedding
No “Bad Blood” here. Taylor Swift and George Daniel, the drummer of The 1975, were both seen at the wedding reception of Jack Antonoff and Margaret Qualley on Saturday night. Daniel has been friends with Swift’s recent ex, Matty Healy, since high school. The two formed their band in 2002 with Ross MacDonald and Adam Hann. They collaborated with Antonoff on their 2022 album, “Being Funny In A Foreign Language.” Healy, who dated Swift for a month earlier this year, did not attend the New Jersey wedding, despite referring to Antonoff as a “great friend” in a recent interview. Swift was spotted at the same wedding as Healy’s best friend, and she spent the night with Channing Tatum, Zoë Kravitz, and Cara Delevingne before leaving with the British model. Meanwhile, Daniel was seen talking with Lana Del Rey while smoking a cigarette. He looked cool in a white tank top, an unbuttoned blue dress shirt, beige slacks, and a brown belt. Daniel was there to celebrate the newlyweds and appeared to be in high spirits as he chatted with other guests. It’s unclear whether Healy was invited to the wedding or chose not to attend. In an interview last October, Healy expressed his admiration for Antonoff’s work with Del Rey. Both Swift and Daniel have worked with Antonoff, who tied the knot with actress Margaret Qualley. They became friends through their shared interest in music production and collaborated on a live-sounding album for The 1975. Swift considers Antonoff one of her closest friends and they have won multiple Grammy Awards together. She arrived at the wedding in a stunning blue dress. The ceremony took place at Parker’s Garage on Long Beach Island and was followed by a party at Bird & Betty’s, a popular spot on the Jersey Shore.
No “Bad Blood” here.
Taylor Swift and The 1975 drummer George Daniel were both spotted at Jack Antonoff and Margaret Qualley’s star-studded wedding reception Saturday night.
The singer’s most recent ex, Matty Healy, has been friends with Daniel, 33, since high school.
The pair formed their band with bassist Ross MacDonald and guitarist Adam Hann in 2002.
They went on to collaborate with the Bleachers musician on their 2022 album, “Being Funny In A Foreign Language.”
Healy – who dated the “Cruel Summer” songstress, 33, for a month earlier this year – wasn’t in attendance at the New Jersey wedding, despite calling Antonoff a “great friend” in a recent interview.
Swift stuck close to Channing Tatum, Zoë Kravitz and Cara Delevingne throughout the night, eventually leaving with the British model around 1:20 a.m.
Daniel, for his part, was seen chatting with Lana Del Rey while smoking what appeared to be a cigarette.
He cut a cool figure in a white tank top, an unbuttoned blue dress shirt and beige slacks with a brown belt.
The musician, who accessorized with a pair of orange tinted shades and layered silver necklaces, appeared to be in high spirits as he chatted with other guests outside the venue.
It wasn’t clear whether Healy was invited to the nuptials or opted not to attend.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 last October, The 1975 frontman said he “loved” Antonoff’s work with Del Rey.
“We became friends talking about production and what I was doing and what he was wanting to do. And then I kind of just thought, ‘Well, this is like a really nice new energy,’” he said, explaining how their collaboration came about.

“Me and Jack were just like talking about music and then those conversations [became] me, Jack and George. And then those conversations became about a 1975 record that felt more live. And then I was a bit like, ‘Well, why are we talking about this? Why don’t we just do this?’”
Swift also counts the “Fun” frontman as one of her closest pals.
The frequent collaborators, who became fast friends after meeting in 2012, have won multiple Grammys together.
“He’s my friend for life (presumptuous I know but I stand by it),” the pop star wrote via Instagram last October.
“We’ve been making music together for nearly a decade HOWEVER… this is our first album we’ve done with just the two of us as main collaborators.”
He tied the knot with Qualley, 28, at Parker’s Garage on Long Beach Island.
It was an intimate ceremony attended by close family and friends, followed by a party at Jersey Shore hot spot Bird & Betty’s.
