Hayley Williams has confirmed that she is dating her Paramore bandmate, Taylor York.

The Misery Business singer was previously married to Chad Gilbert, before their split in 2017.

She has always made sure to keep her private life firmly behind closed doors, but shared a snippet about her new romance in a joint interview with the group – also made up Zac Farro.

In an aside from their conversation with the Guardian, the publication reports that they ‘confirmed rumors that they are dating but decline to comment further’.

Hayley was an original member of Paramore and joined as frontwoman in 2004, with Taylor taking the role of rhythmic guitarist in 2007.

The That’s What You Get singer was previously married to New Found Glory’s Chad – and started dating the musician in 2007.

They got engaged on Christmas Day in 2014, and tied the knot two years later.

However, it wasn’t to last and, one year after their wedding, they announced their separation in joint statements on Instagram.

‘Marriage is not for the faint of heart,’ it read. ‘Love is an absolute risk, and it’s up to each of us to stay hopeful even when the outcome isn’t what we’d originally hoped for.

‘We want to publicly state – plainly, and only this time – that we are splitting up.

‘We also feel it’s important to state that we are going to be okay and in fact, we remain close friends who are good in each other’s eyes.

‘That’s something we are deeply thankful for. Even though situations can feel defeating. We will continue to encourage and support each other personally and professionally.’

Making a rare comment about her former relationship in 2020, Hayley spoke of the physical and mental struggles she went through during their break-up.

‘I was in a very unhealthy relationship, and I just kept thinking: “I can fix it this time”,’ she told the Guardian at the time.

‘I wanted the whole thing – the family – and I thought I might even stop doing music for a while to do that.’

The star explained that she stopped eating properly while recording Paramore’s fifth album – which coincided with her marriage issues – with her weight dropping dramatically.

‘It wasn’t until I saw the pictures that I was like, there’s no hiding that I’m not okay now,’ she added. ‘And part of me enjoyed that – if people know I’m not okay, they won’t get too close.’
