Paramore’s Hayley Williams and Taylor York are dating

It’s more than just a ‘crush crush crush’.

Hayley Williams confirmed rumors that she and her Paramore bandmate, Taylor York, are dating.

The “Misery Business” singer shared in an interview with The Guardian published Thursday that she is in a relationship with the guitarist, but declined to comment further.

It’s unclear when the duo started dating, but York joined Paramore in 2007. The punk rock group also includes drummer Zac Farro.

Rumors about their romance have reportedly been circulating for years.

Fans were convinced the two musicians were dating after Williams released her song “Crystal Clear” on her 2020 solo album “Petals for Armor.”

Williams, 33, told Pitchfork that year that the tune, which tells a sweet story about 32-year-old York, was about “falling in love.”

Williams sparked romance rumors when she wrote a love song on her solo album in 2020.

“Despite my fear, my toughness, or some resistance to vulnerability, I couldn’t help but fall in love,” she said of the track at the time.

Fans flocked to Twitter to share their excitement over the couple’s confirmed relationship.

“HAYLEY WILLIAMS AND TAYLOR YORK GO ON DATING I’m going to cry”, one person tweeted.

“hayley williams and taylor york confirming they are dating is 😍”, a second fan gushed.

“I was half asleep when I read that Hayley Williams and Taylor York were dating so I thought I made it up BUT THEY ARE REALLY DATING and I think that’s so sweet,” said a third.

“Hayley Williams dating Taylor York is the only celebrity gossip I care about,” another added.

However, others shared their concern that their relationship could sever the bond if their love went south.

“Hayley Williams and Taylor York in 20 years if this goes sideways,” one troll tweeted along with a video of Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.

“Hopefully this will turn out better than with Josh…” one critic said.

Williams dated her former bandmate, Zac’s brother, Josh Farro, but things went downhill and he eventually left the band in 2011.

The exes keep lurking and she even called out Josh for making homophobic comments in 2020.

“There’s a reason there are only 3 people left in @paramore. surprise, haters, it’s not me,” she tweeted at the time.

Williams also married New Found Glory lead guitarist Chad Gilbert in 2016, but they ended business after just a year. The singer later said that she and Gilbert should never have tied the knot.
