Andrew Taggart and his love life and fortune
Rising to prominence after releasing one of the most famous songs of 2016, Closer featuring Halsey, Andrew Taggart has been gaining huge public attention lately. Especially his love life has become the talk of the town following his exotic on-stage performance with Halsey during the 2016 MTV VMAs.
Andrew certainly had a beauty by his side until September of last year but is playing coy with fans over his current relationship status.
Is Andrew Taggart dating Halsey secretly, or is he single?
Andrew Taggart, one-half of the famous EDM-pop duo The Chainsmokers, has been on the radar since his super-steamy performance with Halsey at the VMAs. The undeniable chemistry between the two that sparked while performing their No.1 hit, Closer, led to speculations that the pair at some point had dated or have been dating.
A couple of months after the event, the duo produced the official music video for the single. Moreover, the video was as erotic and sensual as their performance. Furthermore, the performance gave audiences another chance to speculate that they were in a relationship.
It is no secret that the DJ/singer dated gorgeous Hailey Rowe until September of last year. What’s more, his group member Alex Pall confirmed the relationship. On 15 September 2016, during an interview on an Australian talk show, Mike E & Emma, Pall stated, “Actually I still have the same girlfriend, but Drew just broke up with his girlfriend like two days ago.”
When asked about the performance of Taggart and Halsey, Pall said, “You know, I’m sure it had factored in… I think he felt really guilty about the fact that we’re always away and we’re doing crazy things and like there’s certain opportunities and situations that are going to be coming up that are going to put a strain on his relationship, and I think he wanted to feel guilt-free in the stuff he was doing.”
Interesting to note, Alex Pall, however, revealed that both of them have a crush on Halsey. Andrew’s relationship with Halsey is still not confirmed. However, his post on Instagram suggests that he has reunited with Haley Rowe.
Rowe’s Instagram, too, contains many pictures with Taggart. Recently, in January of this year, she even shared a picture of them kissing. This makes it clear that the couple has got back together.
